Default Need Help! I-130 or DCF

I am so overwhelmed by all this information and changes and changes to changes..

I called the US embassy this morning to find out about DCF (direct consulary filing) from Switzerland because my husband and I (swiss) got married there. Not possible because we both reside in Canada now.
They suggested to do an I-130 from Montreal. When calling Montreal they said I should file the I-130 to the Nebraska Center.. And Nebraska has the slowest processing times.

Isn't there another way? Is Nebraska really responsible for me? I am so confused. Let alone that I haven't really seen my husband a lot because he is still working in the US all week. I just want this to be over with. I have been waiting for 15 months now, moved to Canada just to be closer to him. I am so discouraged

Try not to get discouraged. I know it is hard, but try. Almost everyone
here has had to wait and wait and wait some more. It is the hardest part
of the entire process.
If the American embassy or consulate told you Nebraska is your service
center then the only way I know to change that is to move. We got our
K-1 from the Texas Service Center and didn't think it would ever arrive.
It did. We are now married and waiting and waiting and waiting on all
the other applications to move. They haven't.
The bottom line is that you are not alone. The people here will offer
you all the help and support they can.
Good luck and keep the newsgroup posted.

The I-130 might take a while to process, but there is a K-3 visa that allows you to come and live with your spouse while you wait for your I-130 to be processed. The K-3 visa takes some time to process as well, but usually not as long as the I-130 does. So, where does your husband work in the states? Is he a USC? Why couldn't he reside in the states and file your paperwork from there? You said yourself that you hardly see him anyway since he's working in the states. He could just move there and depending where his work is, file using a different service center than Nebraska?

If what I'm saying can't be done or is totally wrong, I'm sure someone will chime in, but it makes sense to me!

Best Wishes,
Rene
