Hi I am in CT, though I may be moving to North Carolina later this year.
My girlfriend lives in Vietnam. I am 34 and she is 25. We have been dating for 9 months and I have seen her in Europe (where she was studying) twice last year. I am going to Vietnam for 2 weeks in May and we will become engaged at that time.
If I file form I-129F now, what are the chances she will be approved by December? We would like to marry in Vietnam mid-December, followed by her coming to the U.S. before Christmas.
I may move to North Carolina this Summer or Fall. How will that affect this?
ONE MORE IMPORTANT QUESTION: For the last year and a half I have taken care of my ailing grandmother full time. She helped raise me and so she deserves the best care possible. But that means my INCOME will likely be insufficient to be the sole sponsor for my fiancee. Should I have my parents, who live close by, file form I-864? I am unclear on this.
