My friend and her husband are moving to the US. She's a US citizen; he's Danish. They're applying for a green card for him. She'll be going to grad school (in Madison, WI); he's an engineer. Now, someone told her that she had to prove that she can support him financially before he can get his green card. What's up with that? He'll be the one making the money. That same person (who's not at the embassy but she's supposed to know these things) said that they may have to have her parents sponsor him financially. Could someone fill me in on how these things are done? And does someone know how long it takes for the paper work to go through. I think they keep your passport during this time, don't they. I would really appreciate an answer since I'll be in the same situation in a few years.
