My gf is coming this year’s December we’re getting married and I’ll be starting the CR-1 visa I really wanna know what’s up with it and is it that long to process?? 1 year?? And I really hope to see peoples CR-1 interview transcripts thanks
There are transcripts of people who have gone through this process all over related threads as well as on Visa journey. I shared mine earlier on this thread. Process is less than 2 years if your spouse is a US citizen and more than 2 years if she is a permanent resident. Mind you, less than 2 years actually means within that time frame. my process from the filing of petition to when I got my Visa took about 9 months. Here is a link of shared transcripts under CR1 category.

No, it won't. However, i'd suggest that your spouse goes back and return to see you again. If it will be easier for you guys to meet again in another country, that would be better too.


what if we get married and she goes back and starts the process and comes back 1 more time to Nigeria before the interview?? Will that cover up for not meeting each other twice before marriage??

If she is a citizen, 9 to 18months.

If she is a PR, 24 to 30months

If you list him as f2 dependent during your f1 application, he can get I20 to join you as F2,

But if you didn't, then he will need to apply for b1/b2 tourist visa.

P. S. The consular will be more interest in wedding certificates, pictures and proofs of legal marriage more than an invitation letter

Why is joint bank signatory necessary, would they ask you for that ?

AwesomeOsisindu:



That works fine! Because, they usually ask the "how many times has she visited you" question at your interview. My experiential advice is to start preparing for the filing documents now. I was so carried away by love and forgot to prepare certain things...like joint bank signatory and several stuff that was sent to her at my address(which helps to prove co-habitation). Its very important to prove you guys are comfortable with your financials. Also have as much family as you can in photos at your wedding and also photos of fun places you visit too. Its mostly proving that the marriage is legit that matters. Read a bunch of articles that will help. Check boundless.com and visajourney.com for some more info.

Joint Bank Account is not a compulsory requirement but it helps in proving one's case that the marriage is genuine.

No cause for alarm. It will most likely be converted to CR1.

What will happen is that your CR1 application (i130 form) will be adjudicated before the K1 application (i129f) and will be sent to NVC for processing. Once that is done, the K1 application becomes null and void and you will be issued a CR1 Visa.

If K3 were possible, what would have happened would be that they will adjudicate your K1 application (since it's suppposed to take shorter time) and you will be issued your K1 Visa which you use to fly over to the US while the CR1 application is still being adjudicated. You then get your greencard the moment your CR1 apllication is approved.

If K3 were possible, its gives you the K1 advantage of getting over to the US on time and the CR1 advantage of getting your greencard on time.
