Firstly, where are you from?
I am from the UK, my fiance is in Northern VA, and we’ve gone down the K1 route. It’s the safest. If you get married outside the US, you then file for a K3, but it actually takes longer to process than the K1.
If you just got to the US on a holiday and get married, it can be very risky, proving you never had that intention and did it on a whim is pretty difficult.
Your best bet is to suck it up and apply asap for your K1. If you click on this link,
it will take you to a website called ‘visa journey’ where you can track other peoples’ progress with their K1s, and what stage they’re at, and how long they’ve had to wait for each section of the process. Our journey is on there too! We should be getting out NOA 2 (request for more paperwork) in the next few weeks or so, going by people who submitted their applications a few weeks before us!
It’s really hard to wait. Trust me, I know. But I’d rather wait, and have a skype relationship, than risk everything by doing it the wrong way.
