Can your ex-spouse move to a different state with your child?

In the event of a divorce or separation, co-parenting can be a tricky path to navigate. There is compromise, patience and sacrifice that goes into the division of parenting duties, and sometimes a big change by one parent can be cataclysmic to what might be an already tenuous situation.

One example of such an action could be the custodial parent moving to a different state. While there may be good reason to make such a move—a higher paying job or a better quality of life—it’s a decision that warrants much thought and consideration.

From Fiancée To Permanent Resident

The responsibility to file paperwork may not be as appealing as the excitement of planning a wedding and the celebrations that surround the big day, but it must be done to get married in the United States. If you’re a United States Citizen, you have a chance to bring your fiancée from another country to marry in the United States by sponsoring him or her for a K-1 visa.

Here are some important K-1 visa facts to know before you begin the K-1 process of filing a Petition for Alien Fiancée.

Here's what you should know about green card marriage interviews

As the old saying goes, love conquers all distance. Still, it is much easier to be near someone you love than far away. Now that you and your foreign-born spouse are married, you may be wondering how to get them a green card so that they can remain with you in the United States.

Your spouse can apply for a green card, but there is a significant step to take before it is approved. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is concerned that some couples get married solely to obtain one spouse a green card. For your spouse's green card application to be approved, you must sit through an interview with USCIS to prove that your marriage is authentic.
