Our client is a U.S. citizen. She married her husband in Pakistan in March 2016. After the marriage, she came back to the United States and contacted our office in April 2016 and retained us to bring her husband to the States.
Our office prepared and filed the I-130 to the National Visa Center on April 15, 2016. The I-130 Petition was approved by the USCIS on July 25, 2016. After the I-130 approval, we filed the immigrant visa packets to the National Visa Center on September 30, 2016, who in turn forwarded our client’s materials to the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan. An interview notice was set for the client at the US Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan and we prepared him for his interview. On January 11, 2017, our client appeared at his immigrant visa interview at the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad. On March 22, 2017, the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan approved and issued his immigrant visa.
With the approved Immigrant visa, our client’s husband can come to the United States immediately, and he will get his green card within two months of entry.
