Hello!

I'm Canadian and my fiance is American. We're engaged, but don't plan on actually getting married for a few years.

So, here are my questions:

How long does it generally take for a K-1 Visa to go through? Is it even possible to plan a wedding in advance when going this route?

When in the process of applying for a K-1, can I still enter the U.S. without issue?

Has anyone filed for permanent residency after getting married in the U.S. without getting a K-1 Visa? I've heard this is sometimes an easier and more hassle free way of going about things. It is how my best friend did it.

Thanks!

1. It was about 9 months for me, but I delayed certain steps as I wasn't ready to go over yet. Timing differs though and my K-1 was 4 years ago plus I am from Malaysia

2. Uncertain. I have been successful, so was my sister and some other people I know who went through this process. However, some people were denied entry as they were not able to prove their ties back home.

3. I haven't, but I have heard those who have. There is the legitimate K-3 route and also the other route that I personally discourage.

Do check out www.visajourney.com. It was a wonderful forum that helped my husband and I during our immigration process. We did it all (K-1 > AOS > Lifting of Conditions) without a lawyer with no issues at all.

We did the detroit(me)/windsor(him) thing and it took exactly the time it said.


We were dealing with a daily commute so things were tricky.


How we made it work is we planned everything around the projected date we were going to get it and then when we got it -we realized we could hold off a few weeks on "activating it" once you activate it and declare we then planned the wedding. We had a BIG (church) wedding in canada that we didnt report and then flew to vegas the next day. We got permission from the church to not report it but they also knew us and the families.

I'm from Canada and my fiance is a us citizen and we are just finishing up my k1 visa . It has been around 9 months, 9 very long months.I have my interview next Wednesday (wish me luck!).

During the time you are doing the k1 visa you cannot go to the states. The only way you can go is if you have full proof you are coming back to Canada. Proof you own a home or a car or have a job still there, even then im sure it is still an issue, so its a 50/50 chance.

I had my fiance come to visit me instead.
