You have choices:

  • You can delay entering the US until after your sister's wedding
  • You can miss your sister's wedding
  • You can enter the US with the K-1 visa, get married, go to sister's wedding, and start over with the CR-1 visa

That being said, the K-1 visa is a one-time use visa. Once you enter the US the K-1 is no longer valid. If you leave the US after using it you cannot use it again to re-enter the US. When you enter the US you marry, file for AOS and AP, once you get your AP (advance parole) you are permitted to leave the US for periods of time and the AP is your authorization to re-enter the US while you wait for the green card. If you leave without AP you will need a new visa to return.

All of this. You cannot enter on a K1 and turn around and leave. Well, you can, but you'll be back at square one with visa/immigration.

Belinda outlined your options clearly above. I'd suggest waiting until after your sister's wedding to come to the US on your K1 and have your own wedding.

Once you get the visa you typically have 6 months to use it to enter the US. So the answer would be yes. Check the expiration date on your visa when you get it.

That should be fine. The K1 typically expires 6 months from the date of the medical. From your timeline, it seems your medical was probably September or October. Each embassy is different, so check the expiration date printed on the visa in your passport once you get your passport returned.

Hopefully someone else can confirm, but I don't think there is any issue going NZ to your home country to the US.

THE EAD/AP forms will be filed with AOS once you're married and should take up to 90 days to be received.

as ChicagoSarah said, expect around 90 days from your filing date for I-131/I-765 approval when filed together with I-485 AOS package,you must first get married and receive certified copy of marriage certificate to file AOS,also, if you plan to file quickly it is a good idea for you`re fiancé to begin preparing for the AOS, forms and supporting evidences....also,as you will file early in 2015, make sure your fiancé has complete copy of his 2014 tax returns to file with AOS,not sure on how quickly transcripts are available that time of year.
