    I am engaged my fiancee lives in another country. I will be doing a K1 Fiancee visa. However we must marry within 90 days per immigration rules within him coming here (US). I have read on my archdiocese website that pre-marriage/pre-cana is a min of 6 mths. I know that we must take pre-cana classes but can we be given dispenstation of the 6 mth wait? If were to take as many classes as possible during the 90 days could we get married in the church? That is what I want so much! We are only restricted by immigration rules. I am in Metro Detroit area. I am not trying to get out of pre-cana but have bureaucratic rules we must follow. I am Catholic my fiancee isn’t but we both understand how important this is. I am going to visit him next month and I will apply for the fiancee visa then. I don’t know if they will give the visa immediately or we would have to wait.
    Thanks!

    You can discuss it with your parish priest, who may have a solution. Does your fiancee read and write English? The priest may be able to correspond with them for the priliminary sessions.
