TN Visa to Green Card Approved in 4 Months

Green CardCase Info.
Case History / Issues:Applicant was a Canadian citizen, and was working in the U.S. under valid TN visa status. Applicant married a U.S. citizen.
Strategy:Reviewed case for adjustment of status eligibility, and to ensure no preconceived intent issues, potential employment gap or travel issues, or maintenance of status issues. Reviewed case to assess the merits of the green card application. The applicant and his spouse had sufficient documentation evidencing the bona fides of their marriage, and therefore, should not have an issue securing approval of the I-130 petition. The U.S. citizen was working part-time, and therefore we relied upon the applicant’s TN employment income to meet the I-864, Affidavit of Support income requirements.
