    Hello

    I will be getting married in China in August. I am a U.S. citizen living in U.S. and she is Chinese citizen living in China.

    Even though we will be married in China first should I still submit the I-129F (fiance form) or should I just submit the I-130 form or both.

    I'm most concerned with which form will allow her to come to the U.S. in the quickest timeframe. She has never been to U.S. Not sure if that matters.

    thanks </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
    Immigrant Visa for a Spouse (IR1 or CR1)

    OR

    Nonimmigrant Visa for a Spouse (K-3)

    I am assuming that your wife has no children. In both cases, the time frame will be about 2 years. The main difference is whether you want the process to go through counsular processing or through USCIS. May I suggest you look to see wheich Consulate or Embassy has time trames on the immigrant spousal visa? If you need help, let me know which provence your future wife is from.

    You will actually need to submit both...

    The I-130 is for an immigrant visa. The I-129F is for a K3 visa so that your wife can come here while the I-130 is pending. They are essentially separate filings although you must prove that you have filed an I-130 when you file the I-129F.

    Processing times: Neither the American Immgiration Lawyers Association nor the BCIS post this data. However I have heard vague rumors that it takes 4 months.
    The purpose of the K3 is to reunite married couples quickly it should take less than 4 months but it may not.
