My spouse is the USC and am from kenya,we got married in kenya but we are living in kuwait and we used the DFC,the embassy sent us the instructions package and i got the medicals, and everything else ready and now waiting for my police report from another country i resided before and we are also confused on some issues on the I-864.he has been working here for almost 3 years.he has an APO address,works as a contractor for the military.what does he need to prove his domicile or re-establish his domicile??he has a good job here and we planned on going to the states for a short while,maybe he could leave me there and enroll me in a school while he comes back to continue working here in kuwait.please advise,thanks a lot.

If he is employed by the U.S. Military he is considered to be domiciled in the U.S.

Now I don't know if that applies to contractors. It would be a good idea to email the consulate where the interview will take place and ask that question.

If not, then he will need proof that he is reestablishing domicile in the U.S. - but ask the consulate about the military work first, that may make it very simple.

Good luck
