A fiance(e) visa is for unmarried coming to the US

A spousal visa is for married coming to the US - you marry anywhere.  

 

Your dual citizenship doesn't matter as you can only file as a US Citizen.

Ignore the fact you're a Colombian citizen. My wife is also a US/Colombian citizen and there's no mention of her being Colombian on any of the visa forms. I think she maybe marked 'White' 'Latino' on it.

 

Just file an I-130 and I-130A and send it to the Chicago lockbox if you're in Colombia. If you cant CR-1 then you have to be married first. I tried getting married in Medellin (where I live) and it was a huge hassle like it is with anything bureaucratic here. In the end, we flew to Florida for the weekend, and got married in the Orlando court house without an appointment. It cost about $100 and took 1-2 hours. Who said romance is dead, eh?

 

Shoot me any questions you may have as I'm in a pretty similar situation to you. I'm about 6-7 months into my application and have predictably heard nothing. Will hopefully hear something in about 5 months, but you never know.
