alien who is already married to a U.S. citizen. It allows the foreign spouse to immigrate
to the United States as a conditional resident. The CR-1 visa includes the green card allowing
the foreign spouse to work and leave and re-enter the country. There are many factors that determine how
long the process will take in each case. These factors range from which country the
alien is coming from. How busy the USCIS and NVC are at the time
