k1 vs. CR1

We are considering the CR1 route. Form I-134 request income from US person, however I returned to school because I lost my job due to the resession. I will be done with graduate school in a year. Can I be declined due to not generating an income? If we are, what are our alternatives.

Do you recommend a wedding or can we head down to the court house. Will evading a wedding be frowned upon?

How long does the CR1 route take?

Both the fiance and spousal route require the financial support. Your options are to wait a few months then file (the financial support only needs to be proven at NVC stage for the CR-1 or interview stage for K1), or find a co-sponsor.

You only need to be legally married, court house is fine.

I believe with a K1, all the finacial falls onto the USC ... and a sponser if needed. With a CR1 both your assets become community property ( thats what they called it here in Texas in response to my vehicle ), also the AOS package allowed for my pre marital property and my Canadian bank accounts to be included if he didnt earn enough over the poverty lines.

So there is a bit more leeway with the CR1 there.
