Hi All,

We cancelled the K1 process that we applied in January 2014. Reason for cancellation is we had a traditional ceremony in India recently and advised its not good to keep the K1 process going and file for a spouse visa.

Can any please suggest which is the best visa to file now. is it a K3 or CR1? Some people say K3 is no longer a valid one.

We are confused. thought of going with attorney but we wanted to do it ourselves this time.

Please help.

Thanks in advance!

No need for lawyer just file the 130 petition to begin the CR1 process. A lawyer is simply a filter for your info anyway. You supply them with the same exact info needed to input on the forms. Your best adviser is right here on V J.

CR1 is the best over K3?

Wow that is long. Seems like the average time is increased now for K1. Congrats on the marriage though!

Just out of curiosity, who is the American Citizen and who is the beneficiary in your relationship? And if you are married now, are you guys living in The United States? If the non-US citizen resides in the states, what legal status do you currently have? Are you able to work?

Ours were received on June 9, 2014 by the USCiS. However they are still processing cases that are from April '14 backwards. I am getting more tempted to go a different route. The long distance relationship will have been 3 years in April 2015.
