  • U visa holder's spouse

    Hi.

    I received U visa yesterday which was taking 3 years in full.

    My husband is under DACA for 4 years and we got married this year.

    Does anyone know if he can change his status to U visa?
    Or there is nothing he can do at this stage and wait 3 years to apply permanent residency with me?

    Anyone know about it, please let me know.
    Thank you in advance.

    Unfortunately NO ma'am, you can't include your spouse for U visa if the marriage not happened prior to your filing date. You will have to wait till AOS.

    Appreciate if you can share your U visa timeline
