Hello boys and girl , i am in loved with a girl from Boise IDAHO , and she is ready to come in my country and get married , and and we are trying to gather information about the steps we have to take and would love if some of you would be so kind to help us out :help: .

We are reading all what we could from this site that seems much better then other and we want to ask a few things we couldn't find here yet :

1. We just met a few weeks ago , but we both know that we want to get married as soon as possible and be next to each other (apply for visa as soon as we get married ) , would we need to proove that we know each other for x amount of months or even years ( i have heard from someone that we must of known each other in person for at least 2 years and to proove that we have been sending mails , calling each other on the telephone or visiting this 2 year period) , and if that is not correct what are the real requirements

2. For that Affidavit of support , how much money will she need to be earning so she wouldn't get a refusal counting the fact that she has two underage kids that she is raising?

3.Are there any other obstacles that could prevent us from getting the k3 spouse visa for me ? Thank you so much in advance for all the answers , God bless you :innocent:

I think the 2 year requirement is for K1 visa only--which you need to prove that you two have physically met each other at least once within the last two years...

And, well, me and my husband just submitted our petition for the CR 1 Spouse Visa in June. We met in November 2008, got engaged in December 2009, and we got married in May 2009. I am also wishing that it won't be red flag to USCIS as well. But I think someone told me that as long as we have solid proof, and our relationship/marriage is real, then we shouldn't worry too much about how long we have met each other...unless perhaps if you are from a relatively higher fraud country...

As for a clearer steps about filing for the visa, read the guideline thoroughly. Also, as I have read from many posts before, you might want to consider filing for the CR1 instead of K3 visa.

Good luck and best wishes to your journey!

Based on the information that you gave, she would need to meet the income requirements for a household of 4 (her, 2 kids, and you) which is currently $27,562.

CR1 visa would be a better visa for you to pursue.

Both of you should read the guides to determine the best course of action.
