I-130 Questions C-14

Hi guys i would like some help with this question. Per previous posts, my wife and I got married recently and she got a traveling permit the same day we got married but traveled a week after. I had not filed my I-130 yet, and now that i am getting ready to file, I noticed that question C-14 is asking for the info on the I-94A. The traveling permit allows her to stay as a visitor for 6 month's. Now my biggest question is, will this affect our I-130? i was told by previous members that it would not affect anything, (thanks). But now that the question is asking me more info on the I-94A it self like the numbers on the permit, arrival and when the permit expires i am getting a little worried. What i worry about is USCIS thinking that we got married and got the traveling permit so she could live with me. That is not my intention but in my mind i think that it might seem that way to USCIS. She got the permit as a visitor and no intention of staying any longer then the amount of days provided by the permit. So do you guys think everything should be ok and i should just fill out the info needed on the I-130 for the I-94 A permit, or should she return home :( and return the permit before filing the I-130? She is currently visiting with me and we are planning on doing some traveling in the U.S. while her permit is valid. She will return once permit is expired or before. I am planning on sending the I-130 ASAP to get the process finally started, i just dont want to create a headache for us with this permit. Do you guys think USCIS will see this permit on the same day of our marriage as a her wanting to stay in the United States instead of wating in Mexico while the greencard process is finished? Thanks, any info would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. Not doing adjustment of status, i am following CR1 route through consulate.

Tell the truth. Where asked, indicate she'll interview for the visa in Juarez. It's OK to visit and no need to delay the filing until she leaves. If she were leaving in a few days, I'd wait though and then just indicate she's not currently in the USA. Otherwise, no issue really.

Thank you for the quick reply. Here is something that is getting me... very worried. A member mentioned this to me and i am really worried now. Hopefully i could get some clarification. My wife has had her tourist visa for about 5+ months now and before that she had it for 10 years before it expired. Since she lives in a border city she crosses to the U.S. atleast 3-4 times a month for shopping and what not. We have been together for about 7 years now and barely got married. Now there is this 30-60 day rule about getting married in the U.S. that could cause issues, one of which is VISA FRAUD. The way we did it was, we crossed over together, we werent asked what we were crossing for, we went to the court house and got married. But shes had her visa for quite some time. So would this 30-60 day rule apply to our situation? When my wife got her traveling permit she was just asked when she would be coming back, she stated she was going to travel for a few weeks, and got the permit. Now my two worries before applying are, being dragged into this 30-60 day rule for visa fraud, and her permit being an issue.... I worry that since she got it the SAME day we got married, later on the day we could have an issue. Sorry for going off topic for a bit just some concerns i have before filling. It is hard enough as it is, and would hate to run into problems. Thanks.

There is not 60 day rule. Getting married is no problem. You'll go through the applicable spouse visa process. A rule that doesn't exist is not going to bite you. Even the wives tale associated with the fictitious rule is incorrectly associated only in adjustment of status cases not visa cases.
