Getting Your Marriage Green Card, from Start to Finish


Detailed guides for each of the four main pathways to a spousal visa


A spouse seeking a marriage-based green card must generally follow one of four different pathways, based on where they live and whether their spouse is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (green card holder).

Boundless has produced a detailed guide for each pathway, so you can understand what to expect and then navigate the immigration system with confidence.

Alternatively, answering simple questions in our app will automatically present the correct immigration forms based on your answers.
