Hoping to figure out the best way...

Hi. I am unsure if this is where to place this topic but none of the other forums seemed appropriate. Do let me know if it may benefit in a different forum so as to help me get the information I am hoping to find.

I am a Canadian Citizen who has been engaged to an American citizen for a year now. We visit each other back and forth on a bi-weekly basis. It has become more complex since we discovered I became pregnant and we certainly had hoped to move things along a little faster then expected when we first got engaged. A month following the news he became laid off and has not been able to find a new job yet, throwing the visa process out the window as he can't technically prove ability to support me on unemployment funding (or so we assume). When it rains it pours?

We have discussed the possibility of marrying on one of our visits so at least the child can be born in wedlock. I would still remain in Canada, we certainly are not wanting to do anything illegal here. What I wonder is if we were to do that would it only worsen our situation or would it help? Ideally I would love to see us together as a family as soon as possible but time continues to show that this may not happen... The least amount of time apart from each other would be key (especially when our son is born).

Any input would be appreciated, maybe there is an answer for us that we have not thought of. If you know any body who has been in a similar situation, I'd love to hear your stories of success (or what didn't work, if thats the case). The most important thing to me is a happy and heathy family...

Thanks.

Yes, it would seem that marrying on on of your visits would be a good idea. Financial sponsorship doesn't come into the process until about 4 months after filing the petition, so he may find a job by then or a joint sponsor. Study the CR1 guide carefully and since the process starts with the US Citizen, have him study it too.

Have you discussed the possibility of obtaining a cosponser. Your journey does not end because he got laid-off. Maybe he has a family member who would be willing to co-sponser.

It would be probably be much quicker for him to move to Canada.
