Timeline

I have been in the US for almost 2 years on my student f-1 visa.

My boyfriend and I am going through our options and were hoping to get married and do DCF

in my homecountry (Sweden) this summer. My f-1 is valid for another year but it

does not allow me to work in the country. We are hoping to buy a house together

and need all the money we can have!

Can we do the DCF (which is the fastest way to get a permanent residency right?)

while I am still on my student visa? Please help us find the best way to do this.

Yes you can do DCF while still having another valid visa. But to do DCF, you and the USC need to be a legal resident of the other country (in this case Sweden) for 6 months, not jsut go over there as a tourist for the summer.

^ what she said.

Unless your boyfriend is willing to pack up and relocate to Sweden for 6+ months (and can do so legally) I think you are better off at looking at a K-1 fiance visa

Are you still in the US or are you in Sweden right now?

If you are still in US you can file for AOS.
