    Default Marrying a US Citizen, Employer-Sponsored Green Card Pending

    Hello,

    I am planning to marry my girlfriend (a foreigner) I met in college four years ago. Since then she has graduated and is living in the Maryland with a work visa and has an Employer-Sponsored Green Card pending.

    I was wondering how this change in status would affect either the Employer-Sponsored Green Card, or the process involved in getting a Family-Sponsored Green Card.

    Most of the information I have found relates to getting married to someone who is outside of the United States, not already in the United States with a job.


    Thank you,
    D

    Default Re: Employer-Sponsored Green Card Pending Marrying a US Citizen

    Marriage shouldn't affect her petition for an employer-sponsored Green Card. I suspect her best path is to not petition for a marriage-based Green Card, as I suspect she will be receiving her employment-based Green Card relatively soon (and at no additional expense). Either way, after two years she can petition for removal of the conditions on her Green Card.
