  1. This is precisely why I decided on going K1 in the end. My fiancée will not need to work right away once she’s here.
  2. Apparently Moscow embassy is processing or will process K/CR at about the same rate. Taking into account the delay to file the CR1 due to the hassle of trying to get married first, I figured a K1 will probably be faster. It would take me a minimum of 3-6 months to get married if I wanted the CR1 route.
  3. I’ll be filing mine by the end of the month. If I finish by the end of the year, I’ll be ecstatic, but I’m not holding my breath.
  4. I have been watching lots of videos of couples showing their "packets" they submitted. Some of them have TONS of info. One person mentioned they had 176 pages!! Is there a threshold of enough information? I don't want to send a phone book (showing my age?), but I don't want any RFEs if they can be avoided. I'm still putting mine together. I just wonder how much is prudent. Could too much information be counter productive?? Thanks in advance.
  5. She had one that expired last year. She was in the process of extending/renewing her tourist visa when COVID hit. Don't know if that matters. Well for the time being I guess we'll just have to meet in 3rd countries until Russia opens it's borders. Thank you for sharing this. I had not seen it yet.
  6. Let's assume the pandemic is behind us for a moment. IF I file for a K-1, can my fiancee come to visit on a tourist visa for a couple weeks at a time? Can she even renew a tourist visa if I've filed for a K-1? I'm assuming I can go see her anytime during the process, yes? So if the travel restrictions were removed, we could still see each other while we wait, just like a CR-1 allows for that now, yes?
  7. Well if this is the case, then they're being "equally" delayed, is it safe to assume I will get my SO here sooner with a K-1?
  8. But if I haven’t started the process, is it still considered a “transfer”? I realize I may be grasping at straws, but the Embassy in Tbilisi is closer to her than the embassy in Moscow. It would be nice if she could go through an embassy that may not be so backlogged.
  9. I have a question. If my fiancee could meet in another embassy, say in Georgia, is that even allowable, since she's Russian? I mean regardless of which visa we decide on, could the US embassy in Georgia process her visa?
  10. This is the primary reason I'm considering the the K1 in this environment, although I did just see my fiancee last month in Turkey. If there's a significant "head start" with the K1 that will be realized all the way through, I could see going that route. But I've read that CR1s are being processed now, while many, if not most K1s are still in the holding pattern. So the extra time for a CR1 seems superfluous compared to the K1 then the "advantage" of being able to visit my finacee, nee wife in Russia seems to be worth that route alone. The money savings with the CR1 would probably be spent on traveling to see my fiancee, so the cost difference seems like a wash. However, the benefits on the backend for the CR1 seem like they may well have very tangible benefits. Is my logic sound?
  11. Those that got CR1s, what documentation did you use for Evidence of a Bona Fide Marriage?
