So, since she did already resign from her job about 5 weeks ago - would you recommend that she just stay in the US until she is married and file for the I-130 and I-485?
Or is it better for her to return to France and have her fiancé file the K-1?
I've read this visa takes some 5-6 months and the wedding is only 5 months away.
Also - would she have to be out of the country the whole time - or could she visit on a B2 or Visa Waiver?
Just to clarify - if she did find another job willing to sponsor her H1B, would she be able to stay? Or would she still have to return home?
