    There is another way, but don't take it as we did it at first as we were told you can get a GC easier, paperwork would be easier and husband could file for GC even before I arrived etc etc, but it caused so many problems for us. So we had to cancel it and go through the normal way. I know a few people who had same problems.
    If I remember my husband filed a paper while I was still in UK after I got my visa, and he sent it to the visa center or something like that, but they screwed up, and while I was waiting for a GC here, they thought I was still in UK because on the port of entry here they didn't do the necessary paperwork or something and it all went haywire. Its like A doesn't talk to B who didn't talk to immigration.
    I would go through normal route, and file work permit same time as adj of status.

    very confusing I know.

    All the people I know either come over now through a K1 (fiance) or K3 if they are already married.

        aneri wehre do u get that a marriage based immigrant doesnt need to file a 485? It is the basis of the I130 that after that is accepted in London that they arrive here and have 90 days to file for an adjustment of status!!!! this being a 485!!!!!! </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

        yes employment based!!! but not family based? And if what ur saying is right please tell me how a family based immigrant can get a GC without it????? this has got not just me puzzled! </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

        K3 is non-immigrant visa and requires AOS I-485. CR/IR-1 is immigrant visa and there is NO AOS after entering the USA.

        What else can I say? Those are basics, and you can google CR-1 or IR-1 to learn more

        and ntdf3 - most employment based GC do go through AOS process, meaning people need to file I-485 as those employees are already in the USA.

        There were some stats on USCIS web-site about how many people come as immigrants (and get GC immediately after), and how many as non-immigrants and have to adjust status. I'll post link when I locate the information...

              The way i have just read that it is saying the CR1 and the I 130 are one in the same.. and require an adjustment of status after they have been issued. Valid for 6 months to enter the usa and then u have to adjust status?

                  where did you read CR-1 requires adjustment of status? CR-1 requires removing conditions 2 years from entering the country.

                      That is the route we did, but unfortunately for us NVC screwed up.
                      Often people do go for both and wait to see what gets through quicker. I think you will find that people have problems in both ways.
                      However there is some things the K3 way that is better then the other.
                      I guess it all depends on what you want, or need.

                          At the end of the day, it depends how soon you want to be together. He can wait in UK a bit longer and wait going down the Cr-1 route, or apply for K3 visa and move over immediately once he gets it.
                          K3 visa don't take long to get, but its the waiting for the Green card that can take longer.
