arrowTraditional marriage in Nigeria

Hello everyone,

 

I have a question and would be happy if there is anyone that can give insight to this. My husband was married to a lady in Nigeria who passed away and this was a traditional marriage and in the eyes of the law this type of marriage isn't recognized. We just had our AOS interview and the officer said he should prove that the marriage was legally terminated. We have contacted Nigeria and the marriage registry said since there is no marriage certificate they wouldn't be able to provide any document to stating that he is free to get married else where. 

 

What can we do in this case? He is no longer in contact with the relatives of the deceased wife and can't get the death certificate. 

 

Thank you in advance

Hi,

 

I got TB treated successfully more than 10 years ago which was in foot, even on that time I never had cough/blood etc. I need to know if I should get SPUTUM test before the actual medical exam or interview scheduled.

 

I am planning to take SPUTUM exam from same medical center responsible for taking MEdical Exams for US immigrant visas, will this save my time so I may not get delays in getting medical report?

 

Thanks for reading out!

arrowSpelling of Name

Greetings,

 

Just a quick question I came across while filling out the DS 260 for my wife. My wife is Jordanian and her Jordanian passport spells her name in English in a different way than she has all her life. We've completed the visa related documents using the name as it appears in the passport but, if possible, she would like to have the green card (hopefully, in the near future) written in the way she's used to.

 

My question then is, will there be a point where she will be able to request an alternate spelling of her name prior being issued the green card or social security number. This question rose because I saw the one checkbox on the application asking if we want a social security card sent to an address. If we want a different spelling of a name, should we select no at this point or just go through the process with her name as is and then legally change it at some point in the future.

 

Thanks for the help as always.

arrowI-864 Joint Sponsor can not provide tax return

I am an US citizen married to a German.  I want to apply for a green card for my husband and we are making all this process thru DCF in Frankfurt. Unfortunately I have not enough income to fill alone the I-184 so I need a joint sponsor. I have a friend in the United States who is willing to be our sponsor. The situation is that he can not provide copy of a tax return or a IRS transcript because he workfor an organization of the church and in the state where he lives (specifically a US Territory), he is exempt from making tax returns. He says this is because a law, I do not know if this law is only in this state or in every state of the nation.

 

My question is, what can we do in this situation? He can provide the documents but not the tax return. He says he had  several times to provide evidence of this exemption to the local IRS. (I guess in the state where he lives)

It would be possible to use this same documentation in the form I-864 to explain why he can not provide a tax return?
What else can be done so that he can be our joint sponsor?
