Finding Love on the Internet
Though the Internet has been a household commodity for more than 15 years now, it is still amazing how much it can shrink the world, allowing individuals across the globe to come together, and even find love.
Are Internet Romances Common?
Internet dating, still considered a bit out-of-the-ordinary in 2000, has become more of a norm for busy individuals who are seeking a relationship, allowing them the freedom to connect with partners from the comfort of their home. What once required an introduction or happenstance meeting, has since turned into a task that can be undertaken on a much broader playing field.
When these digital connections become deeper feelings of love, individuals are often driven to meet face-to-face, and in many cases, these meetings require a trip ‘across the pond,’ if you will. US citizens who have fallen in love with and marry a foreigner are eligible to petition for a green card for their spouse based on the marriage.
What is US Immigration Looking For in Green Cards by Marriage?
Preparing for a green card by marriage can be a stressful experience, and for those couples that have cultivated a relationship on the Internet, the stress levels can go through the roof trying to prove that the relationship is valid. The Internet age has not only allowed for the connection of couples around the world who truly do fall in love, but it has also brought about a new avenue for scam artists who charge ridiculous amounts of money from individuals who may be interested in foreign brides.
With all green card by marriage applications, couples are put through the process of defending their marriage before a US Immigration official, and those couples who are truly in love will likely have no issues, though US Immigration is extremely vigilant in its examinations to determine which marriages are fraudulent.
Are There Other Couples Like Us?
Each couple has a different love story to tell, whether they fell in love through an Internet connection like Ed and Dawn, or by the sea in Santa Barbara like Miranda and Guil, or bonded over a love for travel and sunny climates like Veronica and Darren. No matter what your love story is, the Law Offices of Chris M. Ingram can make sure you are both able to enjoy your married life here in the US.
