My fiancé and I are getting married next year he is a US citizen and I am Colombian. How many months after arriving to the USA on a visitor visa do you suggest for us to get married?
Can we file I-130, G-325A, I-864, I-485, I-765 together and send it as a package? or do we have to wait for the approved I-130?
we want to speed up the process and send forms together if its possible but we don't know if we can do it and which ones do we have to. Can you please help me? Thank you very much for reading and answering! God bless you
You should not engage in planned course of action. You CANNOT enter the United States with a visitor's visa with the intent to marry and seek lawful permanent residence. This is circumventing the United States immigration laws. Using a visitor's visa to enter the country with the intent to remain permanently is fraud/material misrepresentation. If your intention is to marry after entering the United States, you need to apply for a fiance visa.
The fact pattern you present reeks of preconceived intent. Your fiancé should file a 129f for you and if approved you would apply for a K visa. In the alternative, the two of you could marry and the he could petition for you as an immediate relative and if approved you would proceed with consular processing abroad.
I suggest you retain one reputable immigration counsel for one simple reason: the AOS you plan has many nuances and several legally appropriate route one may take, depending of the exact case circumstances and parties status and physical presence along with other factors.
It is impossible to address everything you must be aware of in one short paragraph.
