美國加州維持婚姻合法,綠卡與visa問題

我是一名從香港進加州讀大學的F1 visa學生, 在9月30日2013年 OPT將結束必須於過期後60天內回香港

同時我在8月24日跟一位同樣從香港持F1 visa進加州的學生結婚,因此我能以此申請F2 visa繼續留於加州,因為她是PHD還需要讀3年跟1年OPT

可是我家裡父母有困難需要我回港照顧跟工作,

所以我想請問:

1.以我所知美國夫妻分居6個月就當作離婚?

2.而且我剛結婚就離開美國多時,也許會影響我將來申請綠卡的可信性?(如果我的伴侶取得綠卡)

3. 如果我的伴侶從F1學生因工作得到綠卡,那我需要多久才能拿到綠卡?

4. 需要我每年不得離開美國多久,跟需要在美國加州跟我伴侶一齊多久才能保持婚姻合法性?

5. 如果我跟她關係不好要離婚,請問手續,費用跟過程是怎麼樣?

6. 另外問一下,因為F2是不能合法工作的,必須得拿H1B可是那太久跟budget有限,所以如果我是當自雇人士,則自己開設生意如餐館/什麼的,這些是以什麼VISA,程序跟情況?(非投資移民)

謝謝

更新:

麻煩詳細說一下,我還能以什麼VISA進入美國工作?如自雇,開設生意等?(除了學生OPT跟H1B等)

    1. No. Such requirement does not exist.

    In the U.S., especially California, separation is not a prerequisite for divorce.

    2. You should worry about that when your "spouse" actually is eligible for permanent residence.

    State Department and USCIS are lenient to non-immigrants for marriage until the marriage is used for permanent residence purpose.

    3. No waiting time at this moment (about 1 years of processing time).

    4. No such requirement exists.

    5. Find a lawyer and drop some money. It is not complicated.

    6. Sole proprietorship is a form of employment is the U.S. law as self-employment. Therefore, you are not allowed to do so.

    And there is no visa for Hong Kong residents for such purpose.

    None really.

    a. U.S. has special visa agreements with certain countries and places. Hong Kong is not one of them.

    b. California is not somewhere rural enough to get special visas, like H-1C: Nurses for target areas.

    The only way that may work is EB-5, an immigrant visa by investment. But there is no way you will qualified - $1 Million with at least 10 job opportunities.
