A K-1 is not done in 90 days. It takes 6 months right now just to have one approved and sent to the embassy. It cannot be done while the beneficiary is in the USA because they have to have a medical and an interview in their home country. They have to be approved in their home country and get the visa stamped in the passport to move to the USA.

If she visits you on VWP, and you decide to marry. You will marry and she will return home and you will file an I-130 ( CR-1 ) spousal visa which will take around a year. Then she can move to the USA. You can visit during the process.

As far as I know there is no financial aid for immigration because the US citizen has to prove that the intending immigrant will not be public charge. You will need a co-sponsor or joint sponsor for any visa you apply for if you do not meet the poverty guidelines.

Your I-129f was approved in 5 days from your NOA1 date.

Your interview took 67 days from your I-129F NOA1 date.

AOS was approved in 2 months and 8 days without interview.

ROC was approved in 3 months and 2 days without interview.

1) NO If you marry on a visitor's visa you will no longer be fiancee's you will be filing an I-130 for a SPOUSE CR-1 visa, not a K-1

2) NO, for the most part virtually all VJ Members are DIY people, that's what all the guides are for.

3) Financial aid for what? Note Sponsor would be liable for any mean's tested benefits that the immigrant may use, this what the Affidavit of support used for Visa, and/or green-card is for.

1. If you got married while she was visiting you would be applying for a different visa as previous repliers already posted. :)

2. No you don't need an attorney. An attorney will cost you anywhere from $1,000USD - $6,000USD. Most attorneys charge about 200-250 per every 30minutes. I did research, as I initially thought it would be beneficial. But after looking around and coming to this site, I'm doing it all on my own. (or we are I should say) There are plenty of resources and knowledgeable people here. :D And they are SUPER helpful.

3. There is no financial aid programs. In fact, you'll have to prove that you are capable of supporting your fiancee. If you aren't able to do this, I would look into loans for finances and then getting a co-sponsor (a family member). You must initially show that you're at 100% of the poverty guideline, and later 125%.

Good luck to you! :)
