How long are you financially responsible for an immigrant you marry?


Typically, the sponsoring spouse’s financial obligation lasts until their immigrant spouse obtains U.S. citizenship or accumulates 40 qualifying quarters of work in the U.S. (approximately 10 years) based on the Social Security Act guidelines.
