hi friends,

This is a tricky situation for me and I need your help.

My long time love and fiancee is in India and her parents are in USA. They are about to become citizens now, so her daughter ( my fiancee) will be in F1 category automatically.

Lawyer advised me to marry her only after her parents become citizen so that both of us can get gc together. Now I am in USA on H1. If I get married to her she will be in F3 category i.e. married daughter of american citizen. The priority date right now is May 8, 1996, her is in July 1996.

I went through visa bulletin and found out that this date is not moving at all for almost a year.

Now I am confused as what to do:

1. Let her come here in US in F1 category and then get married here and wait for my greencard.

2. Marry her in India and bring her here as my dependent on H4 and then both of us wait for GC.

I am really confused regarding this decision as lawyer says that if I get married to her in India after her parents become citizen we both get gc together in about a year but according to visa bulleting f3 category is practically not moving at all.

I would appreciate genuine input as this is really important for me.

Please help.
