bwelburn is an unknown quantity at this point


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.

You should be able to file an I-130 petition for spouse DIRECTLY at the US consulate
in London, and processing would in all likelihood be under 3 months. Suggest you
contact the consulate regarding this. It would be the quickest and you would enter as
resident after receipt of the visa. Your wife would have to file in person for the
I-130 at the consulate, however if she had to leave prior to your getting the visa,
that would not be a problem, as only YOU have to attend the final interview. Alvena
