I live with my fiancee in Europe. I'm from here, she is American.
We want to marry so she can stay with me in Europe.
We're not interested in living in America. However it would be interesting for me to apply to an immigrant visa (CR1), so I can work remotely for US companies, as an employee rather than as a contractor.
(I'm currently a contractor. As a US employee, I could get better work opportunities)
Is it possible to achieve, retain and make use of CR1/IR1 visas while staying outside the US, but working for US companies as an employee, paying US taxes, Social Security, etc?
We could occasionally visit the US for specific steps, but otherwise we wouldn't want to establish ourselves there. At the same time we would like to keep everything faithful to the law.
