The Green Card Through Marriage Process, Part 2: The U.S. Citizen Sponsor
http://www.doityourselfgreencard.com/blog/the-green-card-process-a-complete-overview-of-immigration-through-marriage

The U.S. citizen sponsor applies to these circumstances
Scenario 1: The citizen and the immigrant are married and both are in the U.S.

The process called “the adjustment of status” process

Scenario 1: The adjustment of status package
* Package of documents to be submitted to the USCIS
* Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status
* Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative
* Supporting documentation
* Medical examination forms
* Fees
* Optional: Travel document application
* Optional: Work authorization document
* Scenario 1: The citizen and the immigrant are married and both are in the U.S.
* The cleanest and fastest way to get the green card through marriage

Scenario 2: The citizen and the immigrant are engaged and both are in the U.S.
* Nothing happens until the couple is married
* Once they are married, see Scenario 1

Scenario 3: The citizen is abroad; the immigrant is in the U.S.; they are married
* The process is very similar as presented in Scenario 1
* No requirement for the citizen to be in the U.S. when submitting Form I-130
* Although possible to submit I-130 and I-485 as two separate packages; our recommendation is to submit them together
* Because the couple does not live together, submit ample evidence confirming marriage authenticity

Scenario 4: The citizen is abroad; the immigrant is in the U.S.; they are engaged
* Nothing happens until the couple is married
* Once they are married, see Scenario 1 (or Scenario 3)

Scenario 5: The citizen is in the U.S.; the immigrant is abroad; they are married
* A pretty common scenario: The immigrant does not have a U.S. visa (or no visa waiter program with the immigrant’s home country)
* The process is called “the U.S. citizen spouse visa” process
* Scenario 5: The U.S. citizen spouse visa process
* Step 1: Initially, the U.S. citizen files Form I-130 with the USCIS in the United States
* Step 2: Once I-130 is approved (may take 6-9 months), the immigrant-spouse can apply for an immigrant visa at the U.S. consulate/embassy of your home country
* The visa application may take up to a year to receive
* Downside: Takes very long time to receive the immigrant visa; Unless the citizens visits, a 1-2 years apart
* Upside: At the end of the process, the immigrant-spouse has a green card for the next 10 years (unless the green card is conditional)
* The immigrant-spouse may also allowed to follow “the U.S. citizen fiancé visa” process; see Scenario 6
