We are getting ready to submit my husbands I130 – so he can have legal residency in the US – he is Australian. After that’s done, I will file to have dual citizenship in Australia/ US.

The entire immigration process has been a nightmare so every step makes me nervous – even when it should be totallyprocedural and no problems. I am at least relieved we are married, so we have good standing. I was shocked to find the mere filing fees for the I130 are close to $2,000 – no lawyer.  The expense is ridiculous – I actuallyunderstand why illegal immigration is such a issue because there is next to no way to do it legally without lots of money and years of BS. If you are a person w/o funds or wife/family there is almost no viable way to become a permanent legal resident outside of asylum.  

Are you applying for a fiancé visa? Or another type? We didn’t file for a fiancé visa, we met and fell in love while he was on a tourist visa – which was going to be changed to a student until the BS started (long story). After 3 years we are married and things should go smoothly now – but Immigration is like a giant, illogical, unbending wall – so I wont feel safe until its approved.
