There are pros and cons to the options for your fiancee to seek immigration benefits. It would be wise for you and she to consult with an immigration attorney about this.

Thank you for your question.
The answer to your question is to file the I-129F. However, as the prior post indicated, there are a lot of factors in determining what options are best for your end goal.
I suggest you speak with an immigration attorney to determine what your goals are, be it to have your fiance in the United States as soon as possible, to keep costs down, to have the "easiest" path possible or another priority. Many immigration offices offer free consultations.

For many reasons it is better to get married and process the permanent residence. It is just fast as a K-1 fiancé case much less expensive. Good luck!
