Canadian marrying American, Procedures

Hello everyone ^_^ ,

My name is Nicolas and I am a Canadian citizen living in Montreal, my girlfriend is American and live in Florida.

We met online 2 years ago, and after 2 years of traveling (me to USA and her to Canada to spend time together and meet each other's family), Chat sessions every day, phone calls every day, we finally decided to get married and live together, (in United States, so I would move there permanently) :D

We searched online for documentation on the procedures to follow, but all we can find online is rather "not clear" to us and we really want to do it right the first time :yes: Seems that our best option would be via a K1 Visa from what we've read.

It would be sooooooooooooooo appreciated if you could help us clarifying the procedures to follow, delays for procedures and such... :yes:

Also, just a quick question : from what we gathered online, it states that she would have to be able to support me at 150% or something like that. But we are wondering what exactly do they mean by that :huh: ? .. She have a job and live in an appartment right now and that's where I would move so she would basically provide a roof over our heads during the time for me to find a job in United States .. we mean, how do they calculate that and what is the 150% based on ?

Thanks a lot in advance for your help :D

Best regards

Nicolas

Hi Nicolas,

Welcome, you can find the 2008 Poverty Guidelines here:

Please come and see us as well in the Canadian Forum, where a whole wack of Canadians are married/engaged to Americans. A few are also living in FL too now :D
