Hi,

Our situation is this:

I have been married to a US citizen for 14 months and we are currently in the UK. My wife may have to return to the USA (Puerto Rico) to begin a job and I was wondering if anyone had any information on if the K-3 Visa would be a good way for me to get to the USA as her spouse. I know about applying for a spousal visa here in the UK but the timeframe may not be quick enough (before she needs to start working).

I believe that the initial I-130 would have to be filed at Vermont (not sure about the K-3 visa). Does anyone have any timelines for applying for a K-3 visa as a spouse?

Is the K-3 visa a good way for us to go?

Can I travel to the USA on the Visa Waiver program during the visa application process?

Any other advice / information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

If your wife is a legal resident of the UK, you can file all the paperwork with the
US Embassy in London where the processing will only take a few months. You would
enter the US and receive a Green Card. See Doc Steen's site and read the section on
Direct Consular Filing. http://www.mindspring.com/~docsteen/...o/visainfo.htm If
your wife is not a legal resident of the UK, then she would have file for the I-130
in the US first, and when she received the first NOA she could apply for a K-3 (I
believe K-3 applications are sent to Chicago). Take Care. Shelley
