A spouse who is already a U.S. citizen or LPR will not require or be issued a visa.

See the Frequently Asked Questions for more information about family members.

Married children and children who are already aged 21 or older when you submit your entry are not eligible for the DV program.
- However, the Child Status Protection Act protects children from “aging out” in certain circumstances. If you submit your DV entry before your unmarried child turns 21, and the child turns 21 before visa issuance, it is possible that he or she may be treated as though he or she were under 21 for visa processing purposes
