Filing for CR-1 visa online....

Guys, I've read enough to know this is possible, but where do I start? How different is this from the traditional CR-1 filing? I couldn't find anything in the guides about this, but honestly I'm a bit overwhelmed, since there is a lot there.

 

I hope I will be able to travel to her shortly and marry her, as I feel a CR-1 visa is the best option we have (She lives in Spain; travel restrictions are almost over with, so we can finally marry). We have been together 3 years, and neither of us want to re-apply for the K-1 visa (due to religious circumstances, we had to withdraw our petition about a year and a half ago). I'm just trying to get ahead of things, and get ready to file immediately after we marry.

 

Also, especially for anyone immigrating by CR-1 from Spain: How easy has it been to come and visit your spouse here in the US while the visa is being processed? Any advise? We simply wish to do this as legally correct as possible.

 

Thank you all!

You can file the petition online but not the visa.  Visa requires an interview at the consulate 


YMMV

Yeah the guides here seem to rarely get updated, but is the general overview of things.

 

The difference is you don't mail anything in and worry about if it was received or not.

You don't have to finish everything at once, you can log in over time and complete or upload things.

 

There's a long thread about visiting in the CR1 forum you should check out.
