Where the fiance intends to stay in the US

Remember you have to file to adjust status and that will involve showing the two of you have a life together as a married couple. Going to be kind of hard to do if you live on other sides of the country without a really compelling reason.

Hi. I just wanted to ask whether its okay that my fiance will stay in california with his family and i in Florida?

Why are you living apart? It looks suspicious that you are not together when you file AOS.

That is not going to look very good when you go to adjust status. That will raise a major red flag.

I don't see the point of waiting for someone to get here for a long time and when finally made it to US, you'll be apart? Unless there's some family medical issue for which that person needs to be there.

Hi. I just wanted to ask whether its okay that my fiance will stay in california with his family and i in Florida?

Are you both going to be in the same state when you get married?

If it is just a visit for a few weeks, before you get married, then it should be okay. You may have valid moral and religious reasons for not wanting to live together before you are married. But once you are married, you should be spending most of your time living together, if possible. If it is not possible, then you need a reason why not and how it is that you two are able to sustain a relationship as husband and wife.

I don't see the point of waiting for someone to get here for a long time and when finally made it to US, you'll be apart? Unless there's some family medical issue for which that person needs to be there.

How about not giving into temptation before you are married. There still are people like that in the world.

and is filing in California Service Center easier? than in Texas

The only USCIS centers that process I-129F petitions are California and Vermont, and your petition will be automatically routed from the Dallas, Texas lockbox to the correct one, based on the petitioner's location in the U.S.

but we will get married in California. and ofcourse i will visit him there, and he will visit Florida too. lol i need to sort this thing then. :(

Not trying to upset you, but this will look like immigration fraud to USCIS because you are not living as husband and wife, and there isn't any reason why this is your living arrangement. The purpose of your K-1 is to come marry and live as husband and wife.

If you do not intend to live together, then why apply? I would suggest another type of visa.

The OP said nothing about not living together as husband and wife, she said her "fiance" would live in California and she in Florida. After marriage if they live together nothing is wrong with that, thousands of people do not live together before marriage, it is done all the time. I would think people on here would understand that, as all us K-1 filers live far from our fiances, I mean my fiance lives 3000 miles away, but we will live together when married.

That sounds like they will get married in California, and then separate and visit each other.
