Hello guys, for me it is still months away, but as I prepare financially for a few more trips. I wanted to asks if there is real value in going to the interview with my fiance. Will it improve the chances of approval of the K1 if I go with her?

arrowJuly Flier with Divorce Waiver, (approved with no interview but after RFE)

Hey everybody!


I am a July 2013 flier with divorce waiver. After successful response to RFE I was approved without an interview.


I have been getting a lot of questions about what I included in my removal of conditions package. So I decided to start a topic for all ladies who have asked for help.


The best piece of advice I can give you would be: DO NOT BE AFRAID TO GET DIVORCED BECAUSE OF POSSIBLE IMMIGRATION CONSEQUENCES. I say you fight for your relationship as I did. But if you cannot find the strength in you to go on, do not be scared that you will be kicked out of the country if you leave him.


To begin with, I would like to assure everybody that there is nothing absolute. All relationships and marriages are different. Hence all the case and evidence packages are different as well. Moreover, immigration officers are different, and even the same officer has a good and a bad day. In my opinion, even how you put your papers together can influence the judgement. There is a lot of subjective. So, please, do not take my posts as call for action to do exactly what I did.


I started a topic some time ago asking the same questions I have been asked after I got approved: "what do I send them?", "is this enough?", "what else am I missing?".


So this is my original post:

Please, advise on RFE

17 September 2013 - 05:48 AM

Hey! I have just received a letter with RFE. I am not sure why I have not been notified by email update before the actual mailed letter though (any ideas?).


My marriage of a year and a half did not work out and ended in divorce. I have filed with request to waive the "married" requirement.


This is what I submitted:

Personal affidavit, explaining the development of our relationship and marriage;

Copy of a letter from the landlord, owner of the condominium, which was leased by me and spouse;

Copy of a letter from BECU, confirming we had (and is still open as of a date of this letter) a joint bank account; Copy of a latest estatement for all my accounts with the bank, showing current balance on the joint account, and Copy of a voided check with both our names and mailing address;

Copy of a letter from Institutional Retirement and Trust, showing spouse as my primary and sole beneficiary of my 401K account;

Copy of spouse's summary of life insurance, agent retirement plan, persistency fee guarantee fund plan, commissions/deferred compensation, showing me as a primary and sole beneficiary on all the above mentioned plans;

Copy of my 2012 Federal Tax Return, filed as married filing separately because spouse was not going to and did not file at all;

Copy of my Health and Insurance Detailed Coverage Notice, showing spouse as my dependent on vision coverage plan;

Copy of a letter from UnitedHealthcare Services, Inc., showing me as a dependent on spouse's health benefit plan that was effective 10/01/2012 and is still active as of this date;

Copy of Geico Auto Policy Identification Cards, showing me and spouse as insurance holders on both of our vehicles; and Copy of a letter from Geico confirming me paying off our insurance policy because of non-payment from his side;

Copy of emails with confirmation of a trip for both me and spouse that was paid in full by me;

Copy of monthly parking application/lease amendments for an extra parking spot in both of our names, and copies of payments made by me;

Copy of T-mobile agreement for an additional line to spouse's Family Plan for me with my signature on reverse page;

Copy of occasional photos with spouse made over the course of our relationship (not submitted prior);

Copies of the cards me and spouse exchanged during the course of our relationship; Copies of cards written in both of our names;

Copy of the card that came with the flowers that were sent by spouse to me at work;

Copy of the message notes of me and spouse showing we used to go to Church together;

Copy of the receipt from the place from the day we first met.

Copies of sworn affidavits of 6 people.


I do not have any ownership like a car or a house with the spouse. Can you advise me on anything else please?

arrowNot Legally Divorced Yet K1 Visa Meeting in Person Question

Hello, I have met my fiance 3 times already. I have been separated and living at my own place for over a year. My divorce has taken some time, but it should be final in the next month or so. In the year I have been living alone I met my now fiance and visited her 3 times. I separated in October last year and met my fiance in January.


I know I will have to submit all paperwork once I have proof of divorce, but my question is:


Will I have to visit her again after the divorce? Will me meeting her prior to being divorced not count as being in a relationship due to my legal status?


My soon to be ex is in a relationship and I am in a relationship now too.

Hi, I have heard that the only embassy interviewing for K1 Visas for Belarusian citizens is Warssaw in Poland. Is this correct?


Why not Moscow or Kiev?


Thanks in advance!

arrowQuestion on proof of U.S domicile
November 11, 2013, 12:36 pm Last comment by AmeenaTutu

I have a question regarding proof of U.S domicile. I am the USC and my wife is from Belarus. Since Winter 2011 we have been in residing in Turkey together. Now, back in US I do not own a house or vehicle. I do not have mutual funds either. I transferred all my savings with me when I was moving to Turkey with her and helped my mum & dad to get an apartment here.. I see a lot of items in the lists regarding proof of domicile but how can a person in my shoes prove all items in the lists? For example, bank accounts might not be that hard but how can one get the voter registration without being present in U.S? I believe you have to be a permanent resident of the state that you're living in order to get that.. Or my driver's license which will expire in a few months. You can not renew that without being in US either.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you all...
