It takes 3 years t get immigration papers? More wrong information on your part! A non citizen married to a citizen is unable to gain citizenship in the U.S. by way of marriage!<quoted text>
You are not alone. Alot of women have experience the same. It takes 3 years to get immigration papers so thats the magic number.
what did you do to get back to him? or did you just walk away? Cheers
Its a 5 step program;
1st. A non citizen must report to INS, whom then determines a court date for the immigrant. Due to a que in INS courts the stay in the U.S. is undetermined and no set time is given.
2nd. A non citizen whom is married to a citizen must first prove their marriage and an INS court must judge on the legitimacy of said marriage, if they agree on its legitimacy,
3d. A non citizen must than ask for permission for voluntary departure to his/her home country, wihch may or may not be granted. If it is grated than said citizen mus leave the country,
4th. Said non-citizen must file papers from the U.S. embassy of his home country (albania in this case) for, "family reunion" a process that can take from 1 year to 5!
5th. Said citizen will be granted a 'Temporary' ID, i.e.'Green Card' and will be under supervision for a period of 5 years after which he is able to file for citizenship!
