View Full Version : Entry on a B2 Visa
03-01-2004, 02:56 PM
I am a US citizen and I married a person from Central America in January 2004. We married in Central America. She recently applied for a B2 tourist visa and was, amazingly, approved. I am listed as the person she will be visiting on her B2 Visa application. Assuming she comes to visit and is allowed to enter the US, at the port of entry, can we file the I-130/I-485 petitions when she arrives. Also, we have not filed any paperwork for the I-130 spousal visa as of yet.

I-130/I-485 can't be filed at port of entry.
They may be filed after she comes to US.
I-130 has to be filed by you for her. I-485 has to be filed by her for herself.

No of course not, any alien petition must be mailed to the appropriate service center. However, this was not the question. The question is can we file the I130/I485 once she arrives at my place of residents not where do I file the I130/I485.

You file I-130/I-485 at appropriate service center.
