So, i am flying in 8 weeks to see my partner of a year and stay with my fianc s family.
I have some questions and i am very keen for any advice.
We had planned to be married by proxy as his tribes head judge has given up the aproval to since my partner is incarcerated in south dakota. He may not be released for another 2 years which is fine as i have a child, job and home here in Australia and i have no plans or desires to move to the usa for at the least that period of time.
I am flying in on a esta visa and was unaware of the k1 visa as we are unsure if we definately will go through with the wedding or not, although i feel it is the right thing to do to honor these feelings, i understand it isnt the perfect situation for it and i have nothing but time.
I am unsure which K visa i will need and i see they all take a minimun of 2 months to prepare and the interviews are in another state to me so i will need to fly there and back for an interview i fear will be rail roaded into the ditch due to my fianc s situation.
What advice can anyone offer of what the right thing to do is sincd i do not wish to be barred from the states and have any future plans to wed and immigrate legally and when the time is right be dashed.
I am whole heartedly planning to be honest and open with any of the border staff and am worried by being honest i will bar myself from this happiness and future by not having the correct visa if we choose to go ahead with the judges offer to provide the proxy marriage recognised in the tribe.
What advice can anyone offer? I plan on coming home and applying to immigrate through the right channels and not over stay my visa over the next 2 years with no rush.
If he were able to immigrate here i wouldnt be needing to even consider moving so its definately not because im chasing a green card lol.
Many thanks in advance for your honesty and replies.
I dont even know how i should go about proving im definately coming back to my child and homeland.
