The only thing what will help you, and make something 100 % certain, is to go to your Consulat and inquire there. (They will be able to tell you everything you need to know, from the waiting period, to the paper mountain being filed as well as all the fees it will come with)
Better to be safe, then sorry.
Okay, I'll bite on the "trust me" part. What do you know that I do not?
Do newcomers from specific countries in Asia or Europe have an easier time than others when they marry a US citizen?

I'm torn on the issue of college student visas between two positions:

1) reduce foreign students (I argue there are negative effects on these on our system of education, esp. on the domestic student body)
2) allow foreign students to stay post-graduation if they secure work within x weeks/months (I argue that they might as well work here rather than overseas, if they receive their skill set here)

I am not sure if I follow......but, just for the record, the statement I have made are my own accounts!
Even though being married to a US citizen, didn't give me rights to anything.....And why should it?
It took a lot of papermounts to file/ fill out, almost 1 year being seperated from my then husband, pay tremendous fees (back in 1990 it was a bit over $650, not including everything.)
To make it short do I encourage people to go the legal route (hence me refering to "better safe then sorry", and NO, there IS NO easy loophole fro anybody, coming from any country....period (at least not a LEGAL one that I know of....... marriage or not.......)

I know, because I've been there and done it, and had so MUCH TIME spend at the german-american consulat in frankfurt/ germany
I wasn't spending 12 months there deaf and blind
