Hi, I’m a US citizen married to German citizen living in Germany. We have been married for 14 years and I applied for an I-130 green card. However the wait times I have seen are anywhere from 12-32 months.
Can I apply for a IR-1 visa for my wife in the hopes of going to the US earlier? I have seen wait times of 6-10 months for IR1. I cannot wait 2.5 years fora green card. We have 2 young children who are also US citizens if that matters.
Would getting an IR1 via be the proper process while for our I-130 application?
