      Can you elaborate more ? Do you have the U visa already ? Or do your application is in pending aproval ? Or are you in DA status now ?

            Unfortunately, you needed to get married before applying. After you applied, it is my understanding, you cannot add your spouse. But, please consult an attorney.

              My lawyer said that I can apply for my husband only after I get a Green Card and then it will take many years until his visa number becomes available. I love this guy and I am abroad and not married yet and want to get married and bring him with me to the U.S. What are my options? He is I.T. engineer
              Should we get married fast and file employment based petition for him for both of us. Please any comments.

                  Scorpion, does this mean that you were already married when you first filed I-918? Does this mean that even if I get the actual U Visa, I can not apply for my husband until I get a Green Card?

                    You can apply for your husband after getting U visa, not sure yet. Please have an attorney to answer this question.

                        Well by the book they have to leave the country if principal applicant cancels the pending petition. But not sure it is complicated to say anything as it depends on case by case. An attorney only can answer best.
