K3, CR1 and IR1

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

K3 has since 2010 metamorphosed into CR1 and IRl, it has been administratively closed. CR1 is for couple married for less than 2 years which means there is a condition on the card that must be lifted 90 days before it expires. IR1- Immediate Relative 1: This is for the people who has been married for over 2 years, a 10 year green card is issued to the person without a condition. I have got to run now but that is basically it. Read more on them on here.

Your attorney is correct.

K-3 existed when process for CR-1 and IR-1 were taking very long time. Now since they are in normal range, the simply go with CR1/IR1 process and not K-3. Before even starting my paperwork I got a free consultation from the friend who is an immigration attorney. And he simply explained to me which route is the best and for what country. In my case it was simply K-1 would be the best choice.



"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths." (Proverbs 3, 5-6)
