Fiance visa is better as it gets them into the country faster so you can be together here.

Good article that sets out the differences.

If you are wanting to be together sooner as most couples do then fiance visa is the better option.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks

If yu can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
