A. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will grant you work and travel permission while you wait to get your green card. Since your husband is a U.S. citizen, you can include form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, with your petition, form I-360, Petition for Amerasian, Widow(er), or Special Immigrant. Include form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization and form I-131, Application for Travel Document. USCIS does not require a fee for form I-360. If you can’t afford the fee for employment authorization and adjustment of status, apply to get USCIS to waive them by filing form I-912, Request for Fee Waiver.
