View Full Version : Adjustment of Status versus Consular Processing

Hi everybody.

I want to ask everybody how did your experience go with either way of obtaining the green card, which one takes less time?

I assume any K-# is fiance related, which isn't what I have in mind, so either IR-1 or CR-1.

My (future) spouse will be coming into the USA via another type of Visa without me sponsoring her. That said, I'm confused as to whether I'd have to file a IR-1/CR-1 to petition for a visa before filing the I-485 for adjustment of status, according to http://www.immihelp.com/greencard/immigrant-visa-number.html or I can just skip straight to I-485?
