A spouse visa is for when you are already married and will enter the US with this and become an LPR upon entry. A K1 visa or fiance visa, is when you are not yet married and will enter the US to get married within 90 days, then adjust status to an LPR. Please read the guides below that apply to you to see what your process involves:

A spouse visa entitles your gal to a 2-yr GC in about 2 weeks after arrival in the USA. She can then get a job, driver's license and becomes an LPR. But, this visa has costs incurred in the Phil. that the fiance' visa does not like the marriage license cost, any counseling required, the marriage ceremony and its costs and the time you will have to stay in the Phil. to accomplish all of this. A fiance' visa has more costs involved once your gal gets to the USA such as the marriage costs and the filing of the AOS in order for your gal to get her 2-yr GC. All of this can take considerable time and money. I chose the fiance' visa and costs in the USA mainly, because I didn't want to be registered in the Phil. It is a personal choice. Most gals want to get married in the Phil. so their family can attend the wedding and reception which can be costly, but cheaper than in the US. I hope this helps... I have no doubt that others will post their opinions and experience.

Best of luck!

Each choice has its own set of advantages. You need to be guided by what is best for you and your wife. My wife and I chose K-1 because the single most important step for us was getting her here ASAP, and K-1 facilitated that much better than did CR-1.
