Help figuring my options out here. I'm a US Citizen, Fiance's a Portuguese Citizen living in Germany.

Howdy y'all!

We're in a long term relationship and wanting to continue our lives together in the States. We're trying to figure our best gameplan here for my fiance and I to:

  • Get married.
  • Get her Green Card.

We have a visit this coming January, and as I understand it we should avoid being married on a tourist/visitation visa as that would complicate a future K1. After the visit, we plan to start the K1 process.

Was wondering if anyone has any experience in saving time legally here, we're not wanting to risk anything here as steep the waiting times seem to be. I understand some countries like Germany allow marriage to be filed without one party being present if the other has power of attorney. Would it be wise to do that for the sake of having the k1 fee waived or is there a hitch I'm not seeing in that?

Thank you all very much for your time, help, and advice!
