Q: If my Canadian spouse visits the US and then we file form i130 whilst she is here, can she stay until she has PR?

1 Answer | Asked in Immigration Law for Minnesota on
Answered on Sep 14, 2017

Canadians are visa free and are not always issued an I-94. If an I-94 is issued, then you can use that to adjust her status from visitor to lawful permanent residence. If an I-94 is not issued, then she can use an Affidavit to prove her lawful inspection and admission. You will need to file the entire adjustment package, not just the I-130, so she can get a work permit and travel permit while she is waiting for the interview.
