I met my fiance in a very unconventional way. He is from New Zealand and we are planning on having our wedding here in CA. I am planning WAY out in the future and finalizing some details relatively early, like our date which will be Nov 14, 2015 so his family can have a long window of opportunity to save for the very expensive round trip tickets from NZ to US.
As of right now we are enduring long distance while he finishes school in New Zealand. I know very little about Fiance Visa's and am desperate for any kind of information someone might be able to give me. Searching for this kind of thing on Google is a bit of a headache, what with finding contradicting information on every other link
How realistic do you think it will be to count on getting married on our planned wedding date? We are pretty set on the date as it's our our relationship anniversary, and we need to have a pretty solid idea of when people need to be ready to purchase tickets.
And on a side note, what do you think of having a simple JOP wedding with us and my mom to be able to adhere to the 90 day window once he's approved, and then having our "dream wedding" on our hopeful date? I wouldn't want to be denied a ceremony and reception just because of visa rules
