Get an immigration lawyer if you can. I was on h1b and married my husband August 2020. We filed in on October 1st 2020. Biometrics in January 21. Work permit in January 21. Interview scheduled May 5th 21. Interview June 10. And just yesterday they updated the case status online saying they are producing my green card to be mailed soon (2-3 weeks) so the whole process was about 8-9 months. It was so easy because the lawyer did everything and gave us a list of things needed and practiced the interview with her. She also came with us to the interview, which was very helpful because the officer was a bit too much with the questions. So the lawyer intervened a couple times. Immigration law is very complex, find a competent lawyer who’ll build your case and support for your application. Hope that helps

Yes I do, DM me.

If anyone needs lawyer recs PM me, happy to provide attorneys and firms I have worked with.

Marriage based cases are taking forever right now if you consular process
