Should I begin the green card petition during pregnancy or after birth? 2 Answers as of April 27, 2011

I am a U.S Citizen and would like to marry my pregnant girlfriend which lives in Philippines. I am planning on doing the Green Card way since it is easier to say the least. Should I wait after she gives birth or during pregnancy to file?

Before birth is better since the child will not be born out of wedlock . . . no I am not a puritan though in wedlock is a very good idea, but there are some advantages for the child in terms of the immigration process. Good luck!

It will take more than 9 months for your girlfriend/fiance to immigrant to the U.S. So even if you start now, she would not be here until after she gives birth so you can start it now.
