Maria Alejandra Morales
I married a U.S. citizen on June 23, 2003 and in July 2003 my husband submitted the request for a resident visa. On November 2004 my husband past away in Puerto Rico and because of this the American Embassy granted me a visa type B2 so that I could remain in Puerto Rico for a week. When I reached the airport in San Juan, the immigration officer reviewed my passport and visa and gave me 6 months permission to stay in Puerto Rico in order to resolve matters relating to the death of my husband.
