Agree with above. Why would you apply for the DV Lottery if you have a pending K1? I'm not sure it would cause problems for the DV lottery application...but wouldn't be surprised if it could cause problems for a K1. If I were working on your petition, I'd think you were planning on having a denied K1 or weren't serious about your K1 and just wanted a way to the US.

My husband asked the same thing when we went through the K-1 process. I didn't get many responses (http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/451793-with-a-k-1-visa-in-process-can-you-also-put-your-name-in-the-diversity-lottery/#entry6483537). We had been waiting a long time, and he wanted to speed up the process...plus he felt he'd get a green card faster and he wouldn't potentially be as big of a burden on me if he secured the diversity visa. I think he ended up applying but wasn't selected. He's now been here a little over a year, and we still wait for the elusive green card :).

Yes you can


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
