Hi there -
I am beginning to prepare the materials in anticipation of sending them to the NVC as our I-130 was FINALLY approved (after 10 months!) yesterday.
I'm worrying a bit about the domicile question. I have lived outside of the US for over 12 years. The first 9 years in the UK (where I met my husband) and the last 3 in the UAE. Our plan moving to the UAE has always been to save money for a move to the US, and I have actually done a number of things over the past few years in anticipation of that move, including
-getting a new US driver's license
-re-establishing a credit history (bank account, credit card accounts)
And because I'm hoping to go to graduate school in the US, I have also applied to a number of grad schools and was accepted at one, which I deferred to September 2015, in part because we were waiting for my husband's visa to come through
I am also looking for work at the moment - I want to have as many options as possible available to us
But I have also done a number of things while I've been away to keep a presence in the US. including:
-maintaining my voter registration and voting
-maintaing a mailing address
-maintaing membership in AAA
We don't have a place to live yet, although I am sure my parents or some close friends will let us stay with them when we move. But we actually intend to move and settle in a different state from my parents.
So, should I go for "Evidence of attempt to re-establish domicile" OR "evidence of maintaining domicile?"
Thank you for your help! :-)
