What Benefits Does the Spousal Visa Have vs. Fiance Visa?

19 Jan 2018

First question comes from Bob. “What benefits does the spousal visa have over the fiancé visa?”

Well, actually a spousal visa has quite a few benefits over a fiancé visa. First and foremost, it comes with a lawful permanent resident card, which is the Green Card. What that means is, once the alien beneficiary enters the United States, they’ll receive the Green Card within seven to 10 business days. With that Green Card, they’re able to travel and work, and things like that. They can basically skip the adjustment of status process, which that means you can also skip the fees associated with the adjustment of status process.

In the long run, the spousal visa is going to save you money. It’s actually going to save you a little bit of time. It’s also been our experience that in some countries, the CR1 spousal visa actually has a higher approval rating than the fiancé visa. It does have quite a few benefits over that. Now, it does take a little bit longer in processing time upfront, but not too much longer.
