My fiancee and I are filling out a marriage license application and wondering if she is considered a US resident or not. She is from Ireland and just arrived to the US on a K1 about 2 weeks ago.

Would she be already be a resident with a K1 visa?

Thanks in advance,

John & Karla

No, not until after you're married, have filed AOS and received her green card.

No, she is not a resident. To be a resident, she must (like the above poster said) get married, file AOS and get her green card. Until then she is not classified as a resident

Good luck

I'm glad this was asked. My county marriage license application only asks 'Are you a resident of the county?' for purposes of determining if there will be a 3-day waiting period unless a class is taken first.

I was thinking yes because she will be living there at the time but she can't very well be a resident of the county if she's not a resident of the U.S. This should exempt us from the wait. Not that 3-days is a lot, but hey...

I *think* this means do you physically live in the county at the time, different from being a federally classed resident. After all, you don't exactly have to register when you move into a county. We had to answer the same question but it was a single question for both of us, rather than asking once for each of us, so it was easier to answer :P

Yeah, I agree with this perspective of the question. The OP is residing in the county although not a resident of the country. You have to "reside" somewhere when filing a marriage application and although you are not yet a permanent resident of the US, for the purpose if the marriage liscense you are residing at some current address in the US.

This is the correct answer. For perspective, if one were in the USA illegally for say several years, they are residing in the USA, residing illegally but residing nevertheless. Frankly, the marriage license for a K1 visa holder could be filled out either way and still be accurate.
