Nothing is fast with US immigration.  He can certainly petition for more than one person at a time, as long as he meets the financial responsibilities to do so.

No issue having 2 petitions for 2 different beneficiaries, nor issuing visas.  As noted, the financial sponsorship is more difficult than a single beneficiary (due both to more people and sponsoring a parent can be very expensive when it comes to healthcare).

 

Not sure where you heard 7-10 months for the visa....expect around a year or so for an IR-5 visa. The petition alone is often taking that long (or longer), then there's NVC processing and embassy processing.

A K-1 is typically taking a few months less than the IR-5 at this time. YMMV.

Sounds more like you  want to get the Green Card.

How many times did you talk about this?

 

What's the issue with waiting until 2021? We all had to wait until we were finally reunited. It's part of the process.

Even if you would start the K1 process now you wouldn't be able to live here until summer of 2020. Not sure of how much a fraud country Uganda is.

@Becci391 of course I would want a Green card when am there to permit me to work and be a permanent citizen....am more interested in living with him ,those who are or were in a long distance relationship know how it feels,...I really love my man ...He used to talk about it sometime back and I wasn’t interested....but now I have gained interest since our relationship is now serious ...my family knows him as well as his .....Uganda is not on the list of the mentioned fraud Countries

Good luck on your Visa Journey.

 

Sounds like he wants to do them sequentially.

those who are or were in a long distance relationship know how it feels,

That is the vast majority of us on VJ, for varying amounts of time.  Personally, my fiancé (now husband) and I were long distance (11,000 km!) for over three years.  Many have been apart for much longer.

@Jorgedigmy reason for seeking for Advice was how I can get a visa at the same time with my fiancé’s mum like working on 2 visas at the same time .. if it’s possible ?How is it done and what’s required not how long long relationships be my dear 

Yes, it is possible.  In other words, USCIS has no problem with it as long as the petitioner is eligible.  The bigger issue (and perhaps what your BF is worried about?) is the ability to financially sponsor both visa applicants.  

 

There is no required length of time of relationships for spousal/fiance visas.  For the K-1, the two parties must have met in person at least once within the previous two years.  This is the bare minimum requirement, and in practice,  K-1s are not approved without more visits at certain consulates.
