Adjustment of Status

A young lady, in her early twenties, originally from Venezuela, who also has Spanish citizenship was petitioned for by her husband, an officer in the United States Air Force. The young woman came to the United States when she was approximately six years old and had overstayed her visitor’s visa. She had been out of status for more than fifteen years. Even though she and her husband are quite young, they decided to marry and he petitioned for her in December of 2012. Because he is in the United States military, she had to leave her family in South Florida to join him in South Carolina. The case took only two months for USCIS to schedule and we traveled to Charleston, South Carolina for the interview. The couple had very little bona fides, since their wedding was only a few months young. The officer questioned them each about how they met and some details about their married life together.
