I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
The fact that you and your ex-wife were separated for a significant period of time can help offset that you're getting remarried so soon after the divorce. The government will also consider how long you've been dating your current girlfriend, what her current status is, whether it's expiring, and how much time passes before you file for her. Waiting to get married may not benefit you if you wind up filing as her status is expiring or immediately after the wedding.
