My fiancee is in the US legally on a non-immigrant visa.
She didn't know me before she came, she hasn't worked here, our relationship is bona fide, etc. So after we get married here in the US, she should qualify for Adjustment of Status and be able to stay while waiting for her green card.
But, we want to move abroad soon. We were planning to get married in a few months, and then travel for a while, eventually settling abroad.
However, after reading about the difficulties getting a non-citizen spouse into the US, I'm worried that if we change our minds and decide to come back to the US, we'll find ourselves stuck in limbo for a few years waiting for her to get a green card when she could have got it easily if we just stayed.
It even sounds like we would have a hard time just coming back to visit my family temporarily; it's not clear if as my wife she would even be able to get a non-immigrant visa again.
Our lease is up soon, we were excited to go abroad for while, but how difficult would it be for us to come back to live in the US, from a legal point of view? Would staying until she has a green card makes things easier in the future?
