Hello,

We are going with K-3 and we've prepared these below. You should find the us embassy's website in your country and evertrhing is written there as well..

You should start to prepare these below;

1- Police certificate

2- Full copies of your passport

3- Translation of your marriage certificate

4- Original birth certificate and its translation

5- 2 photos

Forms (send 2 copies of the forms)

DS-230 Part I and Part II

DS-156

DS-157

As far as I know DS-157K is for K-1 visa, you don't need to fill this form out.

Also your spouse will prepare and send you these below;

1- 2007 tax returns

2- 2007 W-2

3- Signed letter from your spouse's employer.. listing job title, start date, salary, the status (full time) of his/her position

4- Bank and other financial statements.. (if your spouse's income is above you don't need this)

5- 3 most recent pay stubs

6- Copy of NOA2

Can anyone pleae tell me exactly what i need for the k3 packet 3??? i know it differs depending on your country but i just really need a generaly idea of what to get ready and i cant find it anywhere online.

PLEASE HELP!!!! :wacko:

Sorry I meant DS-156K not DS-157K :) You don't need to fill out DS-156K because it is for K-1 visa.

Yes I-134 Form is Affidavit of Support form that your spouse will fill out and sign and get notarized. My husband's income is much above the poverty line, so we haven't prepared any supplemental financial documents such bank statement etc.

After you send the package 3, the embassy will schedule your interview. Then you can start to collect emails, pictures etc.. Step by step :)

Good luck!

My friend, take it from one who just went through 2 years of dealing with Nigeria on the K_3 visa.

You will need everything you mentioned, but when your spouse goes for the interview, he will need emails and/or letters between the 2 of you before you married. Telephone records showing how often you speak with each other. Original marriage license. Notarized letters from as many family and friends as possible stating the marriage is legetimate. Utilitiy bills showing you have changed your last name to his, as well as name change on your SS card and passport. Proof showing you have traveled

back to see him since you married couldn't hurt either. If either of you have been married before divorce papers notarized by the city courthouse, death certificate if applicable and marriage photos.

You need pictures, pictures, and more pictures. Got a house, have his name put on the deed. Cost approx. $150 bucks. It would be even better if you were there when he goes for the interview.

I learned the hard way. K-3 was denied 3 times. Eventually the I-130 caught up with it and we were able to get out of that hell hole based on these things( quite a few we didn't have the other three times like the notarized letters from family and friends and tons of pictures.

Good Luck!!
