Hi everyone, me and my spouse are correctly in South Korea, we're at the interview stage now, we have arranged all necessary documents, now we're a little bit confused about the affidavit of support,we are trying to avoid being asked for a co sponsor since that would be tough to get. I'm currently working here in South Korea and I've filled in my tax return for last year 2015 becuz on the e3 package I read the instructions which said I must come with the recent tax returns form. I don't know if the most recent tax return forms and the fact that I'm currently working here will be enough and I won't need a co sponsor. Please I need help,let me know because our interview is schedule in some few weeks.

PS I have filled in my recent tax returns that's 2015 and I'm currently working, I wish to know if that's fine. Thanks.

arrowHow to answer interview question about marriage?

We are at interview stage yay. How many questions do they usually ask? We googled questions and have wrote down answers for her to practice.

The one we are having difficult with is the description of wedding etc. All we did was go to the district office in Korea and turn in a form. Her parents signed the form as our witnesses. No celebration etc. My family doesn't know (they just think she is gf and coming over on work visa or some other visa or something, hasn't been discussed).

The main reason is that we want to do a proper wedding in a few years once we have more money/knows my family better etc. of course that just sounds shady though and makes it seem like it isn't a real marriage.

How can she explain our marriage and ceremony and such in a simple way?

My guess: Neither of us wanted to spend money on doing a ceremony as I was still completing my masters program at the time so we kept it very simple and just turned in the papers and had her parents as our witnesses. We're both very private people so we didn't really feel the need to do anything more than that.

If they ask about my parents and such she can say: we were okay with not having them come because it would of been very hard for them to travel to Korea and we didn't want to wait any longer because it would make moving back to America after my masters more difficult with more time apart.

Thoughts? Appreciate the support, we r a bit worried. She's going to buy a wedding band this week.

arrowUS military married to Korean National starting Immigration process

I'm very new to these forums. I'm currently stationed in Korea with the Air Force, and recently got married to Korean National. We just went through a semi long process of getting our International Marriage Checklist approved to follow USFK regulation 600-240, international marriage. Inside the marriage checklist are required documents such as Visa Medical Examination of Visa applicant, Family registration, background check and other critical information. I'm in the process of compiling my wife's documents for her I-130. Asides the required forms, what else do i need to provide to better justify her petition? I have started a template and notified close family and friends to write an affidavit for our marriage legitimacy.


Is there anything else that will help our case to her I-130

Hi all.


Background: My fiance is from South Korea.  I am an US born citizen.  She was here on a J1 visa ( no 2 year requirement ).  


So I was thinking about getting married now before she is supposed to leave.  I know that we have the option of her staying and then putting in for the I-130 and I-485.


However considering the backlog in the US, does it make more sense for her to do it in Korea?  Currently the processing time states less than 1 month for the I-130 according to the stats on the website though slightly outdated. 


Average Processing Times for Cases Completed by the Seoul South Korea Field Office from October 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016 Form Form Name Classification or Basis for Filing: Processing Cases As Of Date: I-130 Petition for Alien Relative U.S. citizen filing for a spouse, parent, or child under 21 Less than 1 Month(s)


What are the pros and cons of this route?  She has also been accepted on the VWP.  Can she come and visit while on this without affecting anything else?


Also do I file a CR-1 there at the same time then?


Thanks in advance.
