Immigration Issues/F2 Visa


My question is in how much time the spouse of a F1 visa holder should join .I have my F2 visa but I don't want to go to USA with my spouse immedietly.Is there some mandatory timeperiod in which F2 holder has to travel

There is no mandatory time period, the requirement is that spouse should continue to be on F-1 status. However, a long period of time "MAY" raise questions at the port of entry and you should be prepared to explain your reasons for the delay.
