Question
I am currently on a working visa status in the US.
In a year or so, I plan to apply for my green card
through work.
I am planning on marrying a non-American. So, my
question is:
Will it be better for get married before or after
I apply for green card? Is it easier for a single
person to get the approval than for a couple? Or
it doesn't matter?

Thank you very much.

Dave.

Answer
It only matters for your future wife. If you get married before, she will get it with you. If not, she will have to wait about 5 years, as you will have to apply for her as the spouse of a resident and not as a derivative of your green card case.
