What he is suggesting is illegal and can possibly result in a lifetime ban from the US.

Fire him immediately. It is illegal to enter the US as a visitor when it is your actual intention to remain, marry, and adjust status.

There is no need for an immigration lawyer at all. The K-1 is very straightforward. Why is she contacting lawyers?

I see. Just keep in mind that she is still responsible for the forms being correct, and as you can see not all lawyers give the best advice. Good thing you are asking here as well, please keep doing that.

Free legal advice is worth exactly what you pay for it.

Nothing.

Just posted my fiancee my visa sized photo and photocopies of the stamps in my passport showing when I visited as well as my passport page. Then I think she has everything to send off the application. Then its a waiting game. I still don't know how far in advance to get my Canadian criminal record check. Such a long costly process. Getting fingerprints costs £79. Sending to a canadian company to digitise is $250 and the actual criminal record check is only $25 lol. Almost tempted to book a flight and get it done out there for alot cheaper lol. Its valid for a year. Just now sure how long the ink fingerprints are valid for?
