I am a permanent resident of the US. I will be starting the process of naturalization June 2020. I expect my process to go smoothly because I have all the requirements.
I want to marry my fiancee, but I find myself in a situation where I need advice. I would like to marry her this 2020, but don't know if it would be better for me to wait until my naturalization process is complete and bring her as my fiancee (K1 visa), the other option is marry her while I am in the process of naturalization and petition her as the wife of a permanent resident, or wait until naturalization is complete, marry her, and bring her to the US as my wife. I would like to know which option is better in terms of wait time; we want to shorten the time we spend away from each other. She would be coming from Honduras.
It depends on your objective. If you’re looking to have your fiance come into the country sooner, fiancée visa may be a more viable option. If you’re looking for a more concrete approach, filing for the I130 as soon as you become a citizen may be better. Consult with an attorney for guidance.
