Your best and safest bet is to enter on the K1 visa, then get married, then adjust status to get your green card and then return to your country after the green card is obtained..Green cards do not allow the recipient to remain outside the US for too long or else you will forfeit the green card.

From what I understand marrying a foreign national under visa waiver program and then adjusting status ALL in the USA is considered visa fraud and could complicate matters . If we went to Canada to get married then returned to the US and adjusted status would this be acceptable ? Marriage would... Read more »

I agree with Mr. Dixler. The visa waiver program entitles persons from select countries to enter the US without a visa for tourism or business reasons for a limited period of time.
