  1. I've posted here a few times, but I end up with more questions every time. We're getting married in September and he will then return home to Canda so we can start the CR-1 process. I'm truly wondering if we absolutely NEED to have assistance (whether that be an immigration lawyer or a website like Rapid Visa) or if we will be OK on our own. It's pretty costly to get help, but I've seen plenty of people say that they just did their research and did it all on their own. Do we need assistance? Is it worth the extra money? I have seen some people say that they've used a lawyer if they had a complicated case, but neither of us has any criminal background, no previous marriages, or anything like that. I'd love to be able to save a little bit of money, so I just want to know everyone else's experiences with filing.
  2. Long story short: My fiance (Canada) is coming here (U.S) in September. We are getting married on the 15th. He will leave some time at the beginning of October. We don't have exact dates yet, but for the sake of this, I'll just say early October. When he travels here and goes through the border, what is he supposed to say when they ask why he's coming? Some people say be honest and say that he's coming here to get married and returning after to begin the CR-1 process, but others say that'll raise red flags and just to say he's visiting me. Any thoughts on this? We've put a lot of money into this wedding already, so the last thing we want or need is for him to get denied at the border. (Just for reference, he will come here, we will get married, he will return, and then we will begin the CR-1 process.)
  3. This is kind of confusing to me, but I'll explain our story and hopefully get thoughtful answers. I live in the U.S and my fiance lives in Canada. We did/do not want to do the fiance visa because I don't like having 90 days to get married once accepted. I wanted a big wedding and one that gives me time to plan, therefore we want to go with the CR-1. With that being said, I've recently gotten very worried. My fiance will be coming here in September to get married. After he leaves and returns home (visiting for probably about a month in total), we will begin the CR-1 process. Many people have said it's illegal for him to come and marry me and go back. I'm not exactly sure why, though. He isn't on a tourist visa. He is coming as a visitor. He has never had any issues coming here as a visitor. Am I missing something completely? We've already put so much money into this wedding and now people have me worried that it isn't going to work like we're planning.
