CR1 because if they deny you a K1 (which is not unlikely given the circumstances you described) you can not appeal and have a second interview.

Be prepared to get scrutinized a lot. This will look very fishy to an officer. You just got out of a serious relationship and had the K1 and immediately have the next American partner available to get you another visa again. Front load your petition.

You will obviously have to marry her before you file for a CR1. Just making sure you know that.

I had similar k1 approved pending DNA on January 15, 2015 he then chose to take a family visa that came current. I applied for my new Fiancee March 2016 he was interviewed and approved no one even asked about other k1.

I got an RFE to send an Imbra waiver k1 approved with in two years of new petition.

can you appeal if you got denied CR1 ?

A denied K1 is going to be sent back to USCIS and is left there to expire. A denied CR1 gets returned to USCIS with the chance of a rebuttal that needs to be submitted within 30 days of the letter notifying you. If USCIS is satisfied with your response they re affirm the petition and send it back to the embassy with recommendation to approve the visa. That's what I mean with that you can appeal. A denied K1 is a denied K1 with no second chance.

At least you didnt stay illegally or do anything wrong.

Relationships end. If you went the k1 route these are highlight points. ;)

I think you'll have a better chance with a CR-1 also a CR-1 involves slightly less paperwork and fees, so there is that. But then you have to do a wedding and take photos and whatnot, and that can be stressful and cost money, too. Either way, your girlfriend/fiancee will have to know the basic and important details about your previous marriage, regardless of K-1 or CR-1. So, that's just one more bit of scrutiny that will be on both of you: knowledge of the previous relationship. Good luck!
