CR1 "unique case" - US citizen newly married with job offer

(Copied from /r/uscis) (Sorry for length) I have been with my GF for 5 years now, and we don't want to get married (just because we don't feel it's necessary), but if it's required for her to migrate with me, we will do it.


  • US citizen.

  • Been leaving abroad whole life, but have ties to US (tax returns, lived there with address for few months, bank account, credit score, family, visits).

  • Got a relocation offer from my company on relatively short notice (6-monthish).

  • Making way more than the poverty line for I-134, only issue is domicile proving.


  • No US visas at all, no other citizenship other than this country. This country doesn't have visa waver program as well.

  • Been to US only once ±15ish years ago.

  • No criminal record at all of any kind.

  • BSc.

Both of us:

  • First-world country (i.e not third-world or "terrorist" country).

  • Can supply ample evidence for relationship over last 5 years - mostly Facebook photos + chats, and other types of chats (whatsapp/telegram).

  • Vacation tickets together.

  • Joint rent leases multiple times.

  • If helps, I can write her down as my life insurance beneficiary.

The scenario is that I want to accept job relocation offer, and want to bring her with me - but the process appears to be super long for CR1 visa.

I also don't want to move there and be without her for months, but K-1 isn't an option because I don't want her to be there doing nothing for what appears to be 6 months until she gets AOS.

What could be the quickest course of action for her to get a visa + employment in US?

Other than that, assuming we get married within the next month, what are the odds of getting a CR1 at all? Do they reject it for being a new married couple, or because we have ample evidence for a long relationship it should be OK?

Thanks for any tips. (Sorry for length again)

NVC Case FE Review note

Hi everyone, my family and I are under the F3 category and we just received a notice from NVC that our documents have been approved and that we are Documentarily Qualified. My only concern is this message that we received today in addition to the acceptance: ​ " [Name of petitioner] does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants for this case. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our

E3 Visa (Australians)

Who qualifies for the E3 visa? The E-3 visa classification applies only to nationals of Australia as well as their spouses and children.
