I have two random questions-

1. Is it okay for my husband to list my office as my contact address on the DS-3032 ? Or does the address listed have to match my G-325A? I still have the same home address, but my postal worker seems to really enjoy shoving my mail into my box, almost as if he is angry with me for receiving mail. I would prefer to keep the visa documents from getting crumpled/torn, but I also don't want to cause any confusion re: my address.

2. Is it going to be a problem that I have continued to report myself as "Single" on my 1040? My husband and I were married in Ghana in 2005, but I did not find out until this July that our marriage would be legally recognized in the US. Plus, I had no SSN to fill in to identify my husband on the 1040. Should I attach a letter explaining why I filed myself as single? I honestly-and now foolishly- did not think our marriage was valid here. Any thoughts?

Thanks for your advice/input!

It shouldn't matter on the DS-3032 since it is just for receiving mail. On the DS-230 it will need to be your home address. I don't think it matters what your filing status was. Although the taxes could have been filed without you having a SSN. If he wanted to file jointly he could have gotten you a TIN from the IRS or he could have done Head of Houshold or Married filing separately I think. If you are concerned about it the have him file a 1040-X to ammend his return to show he is married. I am pretty sure though they won't count it against you. Tax forms are only used to show he can support you. It is not necessary for you to be on it unless he is using your income as well on the I-864.

Thanks for the advice! I will be sure to use my home address on the DS-230.

Just to clarify- I am the US citizen. My husband is Ghanaian and has never worked in the US. I did think about checking "Married- filing jointly" this year, but with no SSN or income for my husband, I thought it might just complicate things. I spent most of 2005-2007 living in Ghana, but filed taxes for '05-'07 for the few months I lived/worked in the US. So it looks like I could file the 1040-X? I wonder if it would be worth it, as I listed myself as single for all three years since we've been married...

Sorry I got it backward. Like I said it shouldn't matter unless you are including your husbands income with the I-864. It is very easy to get a TIN and you could ammend your return. Although it could affect you refund. Unless it is a big concern for you I would leave well enough alone and file married next year. I doubt you would be audited and it shouldn't affect your approval.
