I do not see a problem doing that, does he have access to all of the supporting documents needed to build the perition package with him?

 

if so, they go ahead and prepare the package and include the payment and send to the lockbox to be submitted.

Yes. You mean the Application package, marriage certificate and any other proof of relationship along with payment ?

You have to file as soon as possible.

 

Because the entire process will take at least one year.

One question---how long has he been living abroad?

He will have to also prove US domicile depending on how long he's been living with you in Canada...as well as taking care of any back taxes/filing for the US.

 

You posted in the ROC section of the forums, but I assume you are now getting ready to file the CR-1 spouse visa?

Sorry yes the CR-1 spouse visa. He's been in Canada for about 8 years.  That is the only issue. He has not filed UStaxes since he's been in Canada. 

Forgot to mention his dad lives in Florida and we plan on using him as my sponsor.

The dad cannot be a sponsor. He can be co-sponsor though. Your husband will be a sponsor no matter what. He needs to file his taxes and establish domicile.

He's going to need to get the lapse of past tax filings in order...it can certainly become an issue for you (in terms of him establishing domicile to sponsor you for the CR-1) if he doesn't, as mentioned in a couple of your past threads.

I know. Going to be a job in itself. Is this something we should do before filing ?  Any idea what the process is like for back filing for US taxes? 😖😖
