agreed.

use the guides to decide which is more feasible for your situation k-1 or k-3. Once you have a general gist of the two, you can ask more specific questions here as they pertain to your own situation.

good luck!

I had thought about going to my fiances country to get married as I had figured it would be easier for me to petition for him to come to the US because we would of already married. After doing much research, we decided to go the K-1 (you may need K-3) route because if you think about it.... you could go there and get married and come back to the US without your husband. By applying for the K-1 you going about it in the right way. You petition for him to come to the US, if you get approved he will be able to come to the US, get married within 90 days, and continue the remaining steps to complete his adjustment of status. To me I just thought by going that route we were doing everything legally and I didn't have to worry as much. f they approved us, we knew there wouldn't be any surprises or any issues with him getting a visa to come to the US.

So, you're saying the people who marry abroad and come home without their spouse are NOT going about it the right way? When and where to marry is a personal decision based on a couple's values and priorities. There are multiple legal "right way" paths to accomodate those choices.
