I am from India and wish to marry a US citizen . We are planning to get married in end of July . How early should we begin the process if i need to be able to go and get married in July and how long would it take to process the 1 visa . Also once i go to US and get married and apply for my permanent residency , can i come back to India for a few weeks and go back ?
I agree with my colleague. You should consult an experienced immigration attorney for this matter. You may schedule a consultation with an immigration lawyer in your area, my firm is handling these matters in New York.

K1 processing is about 7 months. Where are you planning to marry? In India or US or a third country? Once you are a permanent resident you can travel back to India, or you may be able to do so on an Advance Parole. Consult with an attorney to discuss in detail which of the various options available to you you wish to pursue.
