QUESTION: Hi Mr.Singh,
Thank you for the kind reply.
Somebody says she will not be given Visit visa or TN visa.
But she can get L1 or H1B as these are double intent visa.
In this situation what should be our strategy regarding marriage of our son?
Thank you very much.
Yours-
Shekhar

Answer
He may get married in the US if the girl comes here on a Visa; and  then she can stay until she gets her work permit and advance parole/travel document (within 60-90 days) or until she gets her GC (within 5-6 months.)

Or as you already have been advised.

Best wishes,
