A marriage-based green card grants foreign nationals permanent residency in the United States through marriage to a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. The U.S. sponsor files a petition on behalf of the foreign national spouse. The couple must provide evidence of a legitimate marriage and undergo an interview process. Once approved, the foreign national spouse can live and work in the U.S. permanently.

Prerana and his team were incredible in helping me out with my green card needs. They were able to deliver in under 48 hours and also helped me understand the nuances of what needs to be done and the right procedures around my case.
I had an RFE from USCIS. Rohith and Prerana were quick, responsive and provided a helpful solution to my problem.
Thanks so much for the excellent work in preparing my naturalization application. The process was seamless, and prompt. I commend your professionalism and attention to detail. My documents were hand delivered and ready to be mailed. Thanks again
What can I say but this company is well organized and I hope they remain like this and only gets better. I recently used prerana and her team to get my green card paper work done and to my surprised this was completed within three days and the paper works are well organized. At first I had my doubts because I thought it was a scam,but I told my wife is best we take a leap of faith and I'm glad I trusted my spirit,because I was never disappointed with the service I received. If you are reading this and wondering if this service is legit, you need to stop contemplate and take a leap of faith because it is 100% legit.
I had a very good experience with prerana. As i recently filed my case , she did a good job collecting documents and reviewing it and delivering it. also she will follow up with the case.
Greenboard is a unique institution and a partner of choice. Rob and Prerana were very responsive, flexible and were patient in dealing with my husband and me. The level of responsiveness could be rated 10 out of 10. I had been worried about starting the filing process due to our peculiar situation and the fact that I work abroad. I had so many questions related to the immigration visa filing process in relation to our situation and paying a lawyer just to answer those questions was not an option I could afford to consider. Greenboard gave us an all-in-one package. They answered all our questions, made suggestions when necessary, helped fill the I-130 and I-130A forms, put together the application package, and came to the airport to meet me during my layer-over to sign the documents and even posted the package to USCIS on our behalf. They made the process so effortless and straightforward that I regret not finding them sooner. I am looking forward to completing the remaining steps of the immigration visa filing process with them.
Greenbroad is the EASIEST and most streamlined way of getting your green card application done PERIOD. I have been through two immigration attorneys and multiple “helpers” that just took too long or cost way too much. Not only was it easy to use Greenbroad but the way they organized the application and everything for you to send to the USCIS was very professional and done really well. I was surprised that we got a response from USCIS in the matter of 3 weeks. I thank Prerana and her team for the amazing service and highly encourage everyone to go to Greenbroad.
I did a lot of research on immigration attorneys and law firms before My husband and I decided to go with Greenbroad for filing with USCIS for my Marriage-based Green Card application. I spoke to Prerana before I purchased the package and she was very kind and helpful. Prerana answered all my questions. The application was long but SOO easy to fill out. 100 times easier than filling the countless forms by myself. Prerana is kind, patient, detail-oriented, and amazingly helpful. It felt like having a very dear friend who cares so much about me helping me through the whole process. I am beyond grateful for Greenbroad and their service and of course Prerana. The package I got was so organized had all my supporting documents printed and included. I mailed my application last week. They literally go above and beyond to make sure their customers are happy and supported.
Great experience working with Prerana and Rohith! They are well versed with the process and are super helpful in answering questions. I really appreciate the fast turnaround for documentation check and form uploads. Would definitely recommend their services.
Oh my God, they are the deal, They went the extra mile of delivering my paper work to my location, I can give you 10 Star if it's possible
I really appreciate your help. I am very grateful for your time and consideration. I will recommended you to anyone who will be needed your assistance.
My experience with Greenbroad has been exceptionally amazing. When I first reached out to Prerana, not only was she extremely responsive but also very helpful in explaining and walking me through the process. Another point that wowed me was the turnaround time with my documents. Overall extremely pleased with Greenbroad!
Rob was very nice,patient and helpful.
Nice Working with you Guys,you are the Best and affordable
I really appreciate your help, time and consideration. Would definitely recommended you.
I am fully satisfied with their work and very reasonable price and punctuality helped me un other case too
Applying for green card is definitely intimidating and if you want to hire a lawyer, it can be expensive too. However, Prerana and Rohit from Greenbroad were super helpful and the process was just easy and cost efficient. I found them on the internet, reached out, started filling the questionnaires asked by them till I got the green card. The entire journey took me about one and half years. Throughout the process they were responsive, friendly, helpful and patient with all the questions that I had. This wouldn’t have happened without them. Thank you Prerana and Rohit!
Very helpful and patient
The Greenbroad team was extremely responsive and worked with us to determine the best course of action for our immigration green card needs. They went above and beyond what was expected to help us and push our process along and it relieved a lot of stress and unknowns surrounding this whole process. It helped so much to have them aid us in a difficult and confusing process to say the least. Would highly recommend to anyone needing green card help!
Prerana was an absolute delight to work with! She made the process extremely easy and efficient and once I provided her all the information she needed she put my package together in less than a week and hand delivered it! She has a deep knowledge of immigration law and since I hired her I have already heard back from USCIS! 10/10 for service, knowledge, timeliness & attention to detail. Highly recommend hiring Greenboard!
The process for applying fir green card was very quick and easy just because of prerna, quick response and reasonable price I really appreciate your help Thank you.

This does not include Greenbroad's fee
To get a marriage-based green card, the following forms must be filed and submitted:
I-130 Petition for Alien Relative The purpose of this form is to verify that a valid marriage exists between you and your spouse. The petitioner or sponsor of the application must be a citizen or permanent resident in the U.S.
I-130A, Supplemental Information This form is used by the USCIS to collect additional background information about the beneficiary spouse. The questions in the I-130A are based on the past five years of the beneficiary spouse’s employment and residential history. It must be filled out, signed, and submitted. The I-130A is filed and submitted with the I-130.
I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence If the beneficiary spouse is in the U.S. on a different immigrant status, he/she will need to file an I-485 form to the USCIS to prove that, by virtue of the valid marriage between the applicant and permanent resident/citizen spouse, they have met the eligibility requirements to adjust their status to become a permanent resident in the U.S. The I-485 form contains several background-check questions. The I-130, 130A, and 485 forms can be filed at the same time by applicants who live in the U.S.
I-1864, Affidavit of Support This is a form demonstrating agreement between the green card sponsor spouse and the U.S. government. It is an affidavit showing that he/she has income and/or assets that is enough to take care of their beneficiary spouse. This is done to assure the government that the spouse will not end up being a public charge after gaining a permanent residency.
I-1864A, Affidavit of Support This is a form demonstrating agreement between the green card sponsor spouse and the household members of that spouse.
I-693, Report of Medical Test and Vaccination Record The I-693 is filed to prove that the applicant is not inadmissible to the U.S. on health grounds. The USCIS uses the form to assess the results of the medical test of the applicant. The medical test can only be carried out by a USCIS-designated civil surgeon. The results of your medical examination will be used primarily for immigration purposes and are confidential. According to the federal immigration law, there are four categories of health-related grounds of inadmissibility, which are: Communicable diseases Lack of proof of having received the required vaccinations Mental or physical disorders with harmful behavior or a history of associated harmful behavior; and Drug abuse or addiction The USCIS requires all beneficiaries to undergo a medical examination which can only be performed by a USCIS-designated physician. After the examination, the examining doctor will give the applicant the test results in a sealed envelope on the I-693, which is to be submitted at during the green card interview. The USCIS will not accept the result if the envelope is opened.
I-765, Application for Employment Authorization This form is filed with the USCIS to get a temporary work authorization while waiting for the Form I-485 to be approved, which in some cases may take six to eight months. However, though this form is not compulsory in the application process since it comes free of charge and takes about 90 days to be approved, it is usually advisable to take advantage of it while the application for permanent residence is pending. If approved, the applicant will have temporary authorization while waiting for their green card approval.
I-131, Application for Travel Document If the applicant has to travel out of the U.S. while their I-485 is yet to be approved, the USCIS may consider their application abandoned, which means they will have to restart the whole process from the beginning. To avoid this, the applicant can file an I-131 along with the marriage-based green card application to have the ability to travel abroad while their green card application is pending. This is another optional form, and just like I-765, it also does not carry a fee. Meanwhile, if the applicant has to travel abroad on an urgent basis, they don’t need to wait for their I-131 to be approved before they leave. The approved document can be forwarded to the designated U.S. embassy or consulate abroad for them to pick it up.
Supporting Documents The forms listed above are to be completed and submitted by the applicant with relevant documents supporting the validity of marriage and eligibility claims. For a fast application process, the applicant needs to provide the following supporting documents:
Marriage Certificate This is to prove further that civil marriage exists between the beneficiary spouse (applicant) and the lawful permanent resident /citizen.
Proof of legal termination of previous marriage If any one or both of the parties have been into any marriage that ended in the past, they have to present evidence supporting how the marriage ended. Depending on the case, the applicant will need to provide any of these: death certificate, divorce decrees, or annulment decree. If the previous marriage has not been lawfully terminated, the present one cannot be deemed valid.
Evidence for name change If either of the parties has ever changed names, they are to present documents showing the change. For a name change by marriage, a marriage certificate will suffice for the applicant. If it wasn’t for marriage purposes, a court order has to be submitted as proof.
Passport Photographs Two identical passport size photographs have to be submitted, each taken within 30 days of filing the I-130.
Birth Certificate Submit a copy of the birth certificate when filing, but when going into USCIS interview, the original birth certificate is to be presented.
I-94, Arrival/Departure The applicant has to present the I-94 arrival/departure record. This document is issued by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to every alien who enters into the US as proof that he/she has been inspected by the agency when entering the U.S.
A Copy of Government-Issued Identification In this case, the passport page with a non-immigrant visa or with the admission or parole stamp will suffice.
Furthermore, the applicant needs to reveal his/her criminal history if applicable. If they have been arrested or convicted before either in the U.S. or overseas, they must provide the records. They will likely need a lawyer to advise them on the best way to go about this. The applicant has to be truthful in filing his/her criminal history record as any detection of dishonesty or fraud may lead to denial of his/her application by the USCIS and possible barring from re-entry into the United States.
If you are unhappy with our work and if your application was not approved in first try, we will give you a 100% as long as you filled the questionnaire completely and true to your knowledge. Seriously, we mean it when we say that we will give you all of your money back. That's the faith we have in our process.
Step 1: Establishing the marriage relationship (Form I-130)
The first step in the process of getting a green card through marriage is to submit Form I-130 (officially called the “Petition for Alien Relative”) to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The main purpose of the I-130 form, along with supporting documents, is to establish that a valid marriage exists. The spouse filing the I-130 is called the “petitioner” or “sponsor.” This is the spouse who is a U.S. citizen or current green card holder. The spouse seeking a green card is called the “beneficiary” or “green card applicant.”
Step 2: Establishing the spouse’s eligibility for a green card
The U.S. government follows two different processes to determine a spouse’s eligibility for a marriage-based green card. The right process depends on where that spouse currently lives:
FOR GREEN CARD APPLICANTS LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES
If the spouse seeking a green card physically lives in the United States, the next step is to file Form I-485 (officially called the “Adjustment of Status” application). The I-485 is filed with USCIS, and its primary purpose is to establish that the spouse is eligible for a green card.
Step 3: Attending the green card interview and awaiting approval
The final step in the marriage-based green card process is the green card interview. The interviewing officer’s primary goal is to assess the authenticity of the marriage. Questions can focus on the couple’s relationship history, as well as their daily activities and future plans together. If the interviewing officer is sufficiently convinced that the marriage is not fraudulent, they will approve the spouse for a green card.
The location of the interview — in addition to whether the sponsoring spouse must also attend — depends on where the spouse seeking a green card currently lives:
DOES YOUR SPOUSE LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES?
A spouse applying for a green card from within the United States will attend their interview with the sponsoring spouse at their local USCIS office. The physical green card will typically arrive by mail within 2-3 weeks of case approval.
DOES YOUR SPOUSE LIVE ABROAD?
A spouse applying for a green card from abroad will attend an interview at a U.S. embassy or consulate in their home country. The sponsoring spouse does not attend this interview.
The spouse seeking a green card will then receive a visa stamp in their passport, allowing for travel to the United States. The USCIS Immigrant Fee ($220) must be paid online before a physical green card can be issued. (USCIS recommends paying this fee before the spouse leaves for the United States.) The green card is typically mailed to the couple’s U.S. address within 2-3 weeks of the spouse’s arrival.
