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.
