Marriage Cases

A New Life in America  

green cards marriage cases

The most common petition for a green card is through marriage. If a person seeking to settle down or move up in their life through marriage, foreign spouses are very popular. There is a marriage case process within the U.S. to follow whose time of processing has tripled or quadrupled in the last two years. The forms to fill out have also greatly lengthened to about 90 pages. Work permits that used to come within three months like clockwork now can take up to five months. There is a mandatory interview.


Once the case is filed, receipts are issued right away and are received within 10-14 days of filing. The I-485 receipt usually protects the applicant from any deportation. A foreign spouse must have entered the USA with a visa, or a Visa Waiver, even if it expired, in order to file. In some cases a foreigner paroled into the U.S. can also apply in the U.S.

The entire process is gaining great scrutiny from the USCIS interviewing officers, who greatly investigate the applicant and the U.S. citizen spouse. The marriage must be documented continuously with joint accounts of every kind, joint travel, and of course living together continuously.

Many people come is desperation to ALEX BARAK after they believe they can handle the process without an Immigration lawyer. Typically, their cases are not accepted for filing, they have no idea what to do in response to an Immigration request for more evidence or they simply realize GOOGLE is not a licensed Immigration lawyer and they realize it is time to hire a PRO.


One would be hard-pressed to find an Immigration lawyer like ALEX BARAK who has been going to marriage case interviews since 1982. His experience and knowledge of what will occur at these interviews is unparalleled. He provides a list of questions that you may be asked from the  39 years of interviews he has attended with clients. These are updated every month. How you dress, how you sit, how you look at the Immigration officer has an affect on your case. Having an experienced Immigration lawyer to prepare you, to require you to collect the necessary set of documents and evidence to bring to the interview, and for this lawyer to attend the interview with you, this is something everyone needs if one wants a green card without stress and without delay. It is as important as borrowiung money for a life-saving medical procedure.

Marriage Cases

ALEX BARAK's clients are treated the most politely by the Immigration Officers, they are the most prepared for their interviews, and ALEX BARAK  is with his clients every step of the way. 


The BARAK SYSTEM is proven for success, over decades of interviews. 


Gay, transgender, and lesbian married couples are also legally recognized and are welcome to file.  We have had 100% success.


If at the time of the interview, the couple has been married less than two years, then the green card issued is a conditional one, good for only two years and it expires on its own. A second application by the couple must be filed within the last 90 days of the conditional or temporary two-year green card.

If at the time of the interview, the couple has been married two years or more, then the foreign spouse receives a permanent green card. Although the permanent green card provides a 10-year expiration, that is really the piece of plastic’s expiration. After three years with a green card and still living with the American spouse, one can file for citizenship, a two year head-start over others.

You too can achieve success.

I am a former diplomat, so I am used to dealing with professionals on a high level. After a thorough selection process, I hired Alex Barak of Hollywood as my Immigration lawyer. He exhibited his off-the chart experience and knowledge throughout the case. He and his staff handled our case very smoothly with that extra personalized service that exemplifies class and professionalism.
