Applying for immigration of spouse while living overseas?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to find info on this, and if its somewhere in the guides please link me because I'm not seeing it (could just be me being blind).

If my husband and I moved back to England without him obtaining his citizenship, and we at some point decided to return to the US, is there a way to file for his visa from England? What I mean is, could we file, get his visa, and then come back to the US together - or would I have to return to the US and spend a year away from him filing for his k-3?

Thanks in advance.

I haven't done it but I know a married couple that did. I'm sure there are lots of people on here that have and will be able to give you a more detailed response. From my knowledge I think the only problem that you run into is with the affidavit of support. Your income won't count if you are not living in the US and you will have to find a co-sponsor.

Hope that gets the ball rolling.

Good luck!

Check out the DCF forum. If you have legal presence in the UK, (there is a minimum time required I believe) then you can petition directly at the US consulate there for your husband to immigrate to the US.


divorced - April 2010 moved back to Ontario May 2010 and surrendered green card

PLEASE DO NOT PRIVATE MESSAGE ME OR EMAIL ME. I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT CURRENT US IMMIGRATION PROCEDURES!!!!!

I dont know your current situation is.. but I know you can file K-3 or CR-1 vISA (THIS IS BETTER than K3 ifyou are already married)

Try to research on your US EMBASSY in UK..

We filed Petition for Alien Spouse while my husband is in the Middle East with me, but he is working for American company.
