  1. Well, a K-1 is a valid visa. Unless she was given a ban, there is no problem. Good luck on your journey.
  2. During the CR-1 process she can come to the US for VISITS. She cannot live in the US until after the visa is issued. Coming to the US as a visitor for marriage is legal. My advice: Marry somewhere, then start the CR-1 process. Make visits to each other during the approval process.
  3. Every couple has their own priorities, and each couple must decide which visa is better for their situation. K-1 More expensive than CR-1 Requires Adjustment of Status after marriage (expensive and requires a lot of paperwork) Spouse can not leave the US until she/he receives approved Advance Parole (approx 6-8 months) Spouse can not work until she/he receives EAD (approx 6-8 months) Some people have had problems with driver licenses, Social Security cards, leases, bank account during this period Spouse will not receive Green Card for many months after Adjustment of Status is filed. A K-1 might be a better choice when 18-21 year old children are immigrating also In some situations, marriage can affect certain Home country benefits, making a K-1 a better choice A denied K-1 is sent back to USCIS to expire CR-1 Less expensive than K-1 No Adjustment of Status(I-485, I-131, I-765) required. Spouse can immediately travel outside the US Spouse is authorized to work immediately upon arrival. Spouse receives Social Security Card and Green Card within 2 or 3 weeks after entering the US Opening a bank account, getting a driver's license, etc. are very easily accomplished with GC, SS card, and passport. Spouse has legal permanent Resident status IMMEDIATELY upon entry to US.
  4. Someone has to pay for the time USCIS takes to process a form.
  5. Actually, it said the SS card was valid for work only if you had authorization to work in the US (paraphrased). The card can be used for taxes, opening accounts, etc.
  6. Agree. Some of my favorite companies fell behind the changing times and suffered. Radio Shack is one.
  7. Why would she sign something like that? What affidavit? It is not a legally binding contract. Personally, I think you're trying get guarantees which would not benefit her in signing.
  8. Sears Sold 70,000 Homes From Their Catalog, Are You Living in One? (popularmechanics.com) Interesting article.
  9. From 1908 to 1940, you could choose from over 400 styles of homes to purchase through Sears, Roebuck and Co. mail-order catalog. Sears sold between 70,000 to 75,000 homes, so there are plenty out there, you just need to know where to look.
  10. You provided a LOT of evidence proving the relationship and marriage are legit. My advice: Protect yourself with a good divorce attorney, let go, move on, and seek happiness for yourself. The I-864 remain in effect. Good luck. P.S. It is to your advantage that she becomes US citizen as soon as possible.
  11. I spent many happy hours as a kid browsing the Sears Christmas catalogs.
  12. Good Luck! Every health care plan in the US is different> I suggest you study terms such as: Monthly Premiums DEDUCTIBLES Exclusions Stop-Loss Maximum Lifetime Maximum Benefits Co-Pays Network Providers Out-Of-Network Providers Private Pay Yes, it can be overwhelming to someone who has never experienced US medical insurance
  13. What kind of terrible symptoms? I hope she is prepared for the inability to work in the US for 3 to 8 months after entering the US. Good luck. I wish both the very best.
