especially since you live on Long Island and you know the expenses to live there are higher than say,    here in TN 

you don't want to live paycheck to paycheck

 

to add the CR1 (spouse) is cheaper in the long run (as pointed out in many posts on VJ) mainly because the AOS after marriage is $1225

and the immigrant of a CR1 gets the green card to work and help you within a few months (ours was a month)  instead of months and months

I’m not trying to just meet the minimum . I was able to qualify the first time to sponsor my fiancé without needed a co sponsor or anything . The reason I ask if because now we have a daughter and she is with me and since a lot of things in immigration have changed since I last file 2 years ago . But from what you guys are telling me I should be fine .
