Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Mexico

im a us citizen and she is a mexican citizen and lives in the state of michoacan. we married on june 19th 2010. i understand that when you have a religious wedding its not considered to be "legally married" and it doesnt count. so if thats the case i should be applying for a k1 visa. or am i wrong? i dont wanna make a mistake. we are married through our parish but they say that in civilization legally we're not. it shouldnt affect this kind of paperwork. we werent in front of a judge for a civil ceremony, but we married in church in front of a priest and received a marriage certificate from the parish so would this mean to apply for a k3 since she is my wife but through a religious weddinng NOT a civil cermony?? does it count as being legally married like the requirements for the visa say?? before we married we were together for 5 years with alot of proof. phone records, itineraries, letters, emails. but now we married and have wedding honeymoon pictures and video.
