US Citizen and nonUS Fiance living abroad want to get married in US

Timeline

I am living with my fiance in the Netherlands; she is Indonesian. We are registered here as "living together" (which requires that we both prove we are not otherwise married) but we are not a "registered couple" since that involves a whole different set of cumbersome paperwork.

Therefore, we want to go back to the US to get married, but we will continue to live here, and will probably move to another country in southeast Asia sometime in the next six months. Are we able to go back to get married without setting up residence in the US?

Or do we need to stay there for some fixed amount of time? How long is that? How soon could we move to another country?

If we are able to do this, what forms do we need to use, and where can we file? How long will it take?

You would think this would be a common situation, but we can't find much info on it.

Thanks.

Mr. Mitchell

You don't need to reside in the US to get married here. You guys can simply come as visitors, get married and go back to your home (in which ever country that is). People do this every day - think Las Vegas.

Since you guys don't intend to remain in the US (to live), all you'll need to do is get a marriage license (which varies by state). Visitor's visa for the foreign fiance may be needed.

Citizens of Indonesia need a visitor visa to enter the US on a temporary basis. She should be able to apply through the local US Embassy or Consulate.
