Question 21 on I-130......

Timeline

Hey all.. My fiancee and I are getting married in September in Poland. We can't wait!! After we get married, I'm coming back to the US alone :-(, and I will file for CR-1. We are currently gathering all the information and paperwork together, to try to have everything ready for when I come back. Well, I was filling out the I-130, and question 21 asks "If filing for husband/wife, give last address at which you lived together." Well, what if we didn't live with each other prior to our wedding, what should I enter in that space?

Also I had a second quick question. My fiancee currently has a B1/B2 tourist visa good for another 4 years. Can she visit me for a couple of weeks, even after I send in the I-130? And, since she will have taken my last name by then, will she need to change her passport to the new name, and will that void her tourist visa? Or can she travel on the old one with a copy of our marriage certificate? Whew, I know it's alot, but maybe someone knows something or experienced something similar.

Thanx in Advance guys....

Good luck to all..

If you have not lived together (which a lot of couples don't when going through this process) simply put N/A (don't leave any blanks on the I-130)

If your wife has a B1/2 visa she is certainly eligible to apply for entry. However, her admittance is not guaranteed and if she is denied, it will not impact the spousal visa at all.

Good luck.

Mike, if she has B2, she always can attempt to enter US. They will most likely scrutinize her more at POE when they see she has an immigrant visa application in process, and there is not any guaratee she will be admitted... That said, if she is able to convince CBP that she's only visiting and going back to Poland to wait out CR1 process, she'll get 6-months I-94.

Thank You for the information!! It seems like it would work if she came back with me from Poland after the wedding, it would sure make things easier for us, because we are dreading saying goodbye after our wedding.

Again, thanks for the replies, I'm sure I'll have many more questions in the near future, so I'm sure you'll see me around...
