Hi all, been reading lots on this site off and on for about a year. My GF of 3 1/2 years (we're talking about getting married) is a Colombian national with her Costa Rican residency living in C.R. and has a current B1/B2 VISA. I am a gringo living 7 month's in C.R. and the rest of the year in the states, usually from FL to MD.

I guess now is the time to start thinking ahead as to what is needed. Ideas on whether it would be best to marry in C.R. and apply for a K3 or to apply for a K1 and get married in the states? I guess with either of these choises her current VISA would be void and she wouldn't be allowed in the states untill all is approved? I will be leaving for C.R. the first of November for the winter and am wondering what would be the best way to make sure she can come back with me to MD next summer.

Looks like lots of paperwork and putting together all things that prove togetherness for the past few years. Any other ideas and pointers?

Thanks

Hi I was looking through this site and was wondering what the outcome was of you research? Did you end up marrying in CR and applying for a K3 here in the US? I ask because I am just about to go though that and would love to hear the details from someone who has actually gone throuh this process and understands it better than me.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
