    Please help

    Apply for a Cr1/IR1. As soon as you get to the US you'll be able to work right away. If you choose the K-1 it will be quicker to get an interview by 4-5 months compared to the spouse visa however, you get there and there's a big wait for you to be able to start working, and you can't leave the country right away if you wanted a holiday ...

    Medical after interview date

    Go to your interview prepared so then you will only need to submit Medicals and you’re good to go
  10. You seem so rushed to bring her here ..take your time, there’s no rush. You’re basically two strangers, give it time and think with your head not heart. Good luck.
  11. YES! i answered yes on mine and a week after entering the US I received SS card in the mail. And it took 21 days after my entry to receive GC in the mail. Both GC and SS will not be mailed to you until your spouse enters the US.
  12. My folder was quite heavy but yes definitely better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it There you go : https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-gb/iv make sure you also book your biometrics
  13. I had my interview last month. Took me 30 minutes. I had everything you’ve listed but CO only asked me for : • Original birth certificate of me and my husband • All my original police certificates. I had about 230 pages of documents but I only had to show those listed above .. as long as you know you’ve got it all you’ll be fine. Be attentive and positive. Good luck
  14. At the end of the day you have to get married in both visas and even if the K-1 is “faster” it’s actually not that much faster lately. Also if you go with the K-1 route your fiancé will come to the US and wait quite a bit to be able to work and receive GC. But if you go with the CR-1 route it’s 11+ Months wait but at least as soon as your spouse steps into the US he’ll be a resident and will have SS card and GC mailed to your address quite fast Good luck on your journey, don’t forget to have lots of patience
