If you fell in love with a U.S. Citizen and you decide to get married, you can use the option and file your application.
As a U.S. spouse, you are an immediate relative, making you eligible to apply for immigration. There are two ways to apply for a green card through marriage.
Steps to go from Daca to a marriage-based green card through consular processing
Being married to a U.S. citizen automatically makes you eligible. You just need valid proof of your marriage.
Get an I-130 petition approved.
File an I-130 petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services USCIS. Once it is approved, you will receive an I-797 Notice of Action in the mail.
Get your visa number from the NVC.
The National Visa Center will notify you when there is a visa number for your I-797. There is no limit to the number of visas for petitions based on immediate relatives (a U.S. citizen spouse).
Apply for an immigrant visa
The NVC will notify you when to submit your immigrant visa application, supporting documentation, and processing fees paid to the government agency.
Now it’s time to file a Form DS-260. Also, your spouse may be required to submit a form I-864 (Affidavit of Support). With this affidavit, foreign national promises to support you if you cannot do so yourself.
Attend consular processing
Upon receiving your application package, the consular office will schedule a meeting with you (the beneficiary).
At this meeting, you can expect they will decide the outcome of your application.
Enter the United States
When you receive your Visa Packet, you may use it to cross the border. Since this is a lawful entry, you will enter the country as a lawful permanent resident and receive your green card by mail to your registered U.S. address.
The process can take up to 12 months to get a successful outcome, so be patient.
