Does anyone know if we were to marry in the US, if we would be able to do DCF in Hungary?


There is no reason why you can not marry in the US then file DCF abroad. As long as the marriage is legal and the petitioner and beneficiary fulfill the DCF requirements then you can file DCF, doesn't matter where the marriage took place.

In practice, most people who marry in the US stay in the US and adjust status. They don't leave the US to file DCF, but nothing says they can't.

The only reason I would consider filing abroad, would be in hopes of my fiance getting his paperwork faster. I know filing here in CA, could take up to a couple years. Filing in Hungary, would get him his paperwork within 4 months. Give or take. That would be the only reason I would consider it.

There is nothing wrong with marrying in the US (where it is easier and faster than other places) and filing DCF abroad. I know of someone who is overseas doing so right now after a US marriage.

rain, your dilema of course is if your fiance can get back to the US. Have you looked into Canada?

I would like to marry in the US, but he is in Hungary and probably wouldn't get approved for a B2 visa this soon. He's been gone a month.

Yes, my dilema is having my fiance here with me in the US.

No, haven't check Canada yet. Will check! Thank you! :)
