I am going to get married within 90 days as per K1 rules. So I am going to get married in vegas in the next ten days so I can get the certified marriage certificate fast. But I may not do the AOS until 20 days after the 90 days. Is that a problem? This do to money issues.

No problem if he won't be near the border traveling etc. There have been issues in the past with this but it happened near the border while

riding a bus. You should be fine. They need to lower the fee. Ticket home, wedding, AOS blah blah....it gets expensive.

Does it matter when the marriage certificate is issued or simply that the listed date of marriage is within the ninety-day window? If the latter, no need to rush to somewhere that can get it in-hand. Simply marry within the ninety days wherever you most desire.

OK, due to waiting for the last minute and Money problems. Her k1 visa expires on 10/23/14. So we can get married on 10/18/14??????? I should have the marriage certificate but after 10/23/14.

I don't have personal knowledge of this but I imagine the only thing that matters is that the marriage date listed on your marriage certificate is within the ninety days after PoE for your fiance(e).

Yes. You must marry within the 90 days after entry on the K-1. I assume you mean the I-94 expiration date, since the K-1 visa became null and void when you used it to enter. If you marry within those 90 days, then you are eligible to file for AOS. It is not the date you receive your marriage certificate from the court. It is the date you actually legally wed.

I agree. It's the date that you had your marriage solemnized that matters not when your certificate was issued or received. The marriage cert would reflect the date of marriage when you had the ceremony. You are cutting it close though, I always tell people to get married early in the 90 day window. You can have the actual wedding later in the window, just make it legal first.


This does not constitute legal advice.

Cutting what close? Why would it be better to marry early in the 90 day time frame instead of later?

Seriously what is it with you and my posts? I was referring to getting married close to the expiration of the 90 day window. I don't know why it's better to get married earlier in the 90 day window, you tell me.

Do you read the stuff you type? I am not the one that made the statement. You did. You explain why it is better to marry earlier in the 90 day time frame.

You said, "You are cutting it close though, I always tell people to get married early in the 90 day window. You can have the actual wedding later in the window, just make it legal first."

So, why would you always tell people to get married early on in the 90 day time period?

I know what I typed, I guess sarcasm is hard to read online. The reason I said it's better to get married early in the window is that you can have that taken care of, giving you peace of mind to only have to worry about getting the AOS forms ready.

Plus by getting married early in the window, you would have time to handle unforeseen circumstances, such as if you lose your passport, or you can't get your marriage cert right away. I am the kind of person that likes to look ahead and there is nothing wrong with my advice being based on that.

They give people the 90 day window and I simply don't think it wise to wait until the last minute, which is why I tell people with the K1 to get married early in the window.

Therefore, I really do not understand your incessant need to question a post that doesn't even affect the OP, but merely offers a suggestion to others who may read this thread in the future.

If someone chooses to have a planned out wedding ceremony, then that is fine too. No need to tell everyone to rush out to the courthouse as soon as they arrive. As long as they marry within 90 days of arrival, then they are eligible to file for AOS, period.

If you don't like me asking questions about the things you post, then you could always stop posting them. The post was already answered correctly, so no need for your follow up agreement post 2 days after the fact, which you seem to incessantly feel the need to do a lot all over VJ.

You are not special. I do not single you out. You are not that important. I do the same with all posts I read that are incorrect or questionable, from anyone. You just seem to have posted a lot of things that needed correcting and questioning since you recently joined. I have not been the only one that has needed to clear up misinformation you have posted, now have I? You have changed your name and gotten better about not posting so much incorrect stuff since regurgitating many of the correct things already previously posted here, but no one is 100% accurate 100% of the time.

This wasn't even about being incorrect. I simply wanted to know why you feel the need to tell people they should go make it legal as soon as possible and have a ceremony later. What you personally would do(though you did not actually go for the K1 visa, but the CR-1 spousal visa instead), does not mean everyone else would need to do so or think/feel the same as you do. I never stated your opinion was wrong. It is just your opinion. I wanted to know why you felt the need to use your opinion to give advice on when and how others should marry. You have now stated why and others can read it and decide for themselves.
