Hello, I am James. I will be helping you today. I do not get a salary here. But just like you, I want to get credit for doing my job. You are the only person who can help me get credit before leaving this site today. So please do not forget to do that by giving me a positive rating with 3 or more stars or any of the smiling faces.
Also, if you want me to be your personal immigration Expert, just write “FOR JAMES" at the beginning of any future, new questions, and I will be happy to help you as your personal Expert.
Really the way you do it depends on when you intend or want to be in the US. Note, the difference is about 3 to 5 months.
The fiance visa takes less time than the marriage based immigration process. But it means when you come to the US, you would have to take an additional step and it would cost additional fees. You also would have to wait until you get employment authorization to be able to work.
With the immigrant visa process, you will enter the US as a permanent resident and can work immediately, but it takes a little longer for you to get here.
Which process would you like more information about?
