Filed: Citizen (apr) Country: Spain

Check box (a). As the spouse of a USC, if your I-130 petition (which you should be filing concurrently) is approved, then you'll have a visa number immediately available. Note the second part of that answer, "(Attach a copy of ... a relative ... visa petition filed with this application that will give you an immediately available visa number, if approved.)"

Good luck!
