Hi everybody!!!

Did someone else got married under a K1 first @ the court couple of days after of the arrival of the alien fiance(e) just to start as soon as possible the AOS and then got married some months after as official ceremony where lot of ppl go etc? If we do that, should be saying in AOS that we will have our official wedding whenever (tell the date) or how does it goes?

Thank you! :)

You can only have one marriage license,one marriage certificate and one official marriage event. If you do as you plan, the official one is the one you do in the court and is the official marriage event is the one that you base your AOS on... you can have as many celebration ceremonies as your heart desires and the USCIS does not care about anything other than the one that is the legally recognized one.


YMMV

When you marry the first time that is the date you will use for your AOS. Now someone commented that you could not obtain a 2nd marriage license which is true, however, when you are currently married another marriage license is not required. My parents renewed their vows and never had to obtain another license, all they had to do was show the priest at the church their originally marriage certificate and he performed the ceremony. So to answer your question, if you wanted to have a civil marriage or even a small religious ceremony right away and have a larger wedding later you could do that. Good luck!!!

Hi,

My wife and I did the same thing. We had a civil ceremony in July and then our wedding in September. We use the date on our original marriage certificate for all our paperwork, not the date of the wedding. We did however send copies of our save the date and invites as part of the bona-fides.

Also, you CAN/DO get a second certificate (maybe this only applies in some states) called a remarriage licence/certificate. The officiant referred to the wedding as a renewal when we discussed wedding plans, but we did receive a second marriage certificate.

Again, use the original date for your paperwork.

I think this needs to be said...

Marriage:

Marriage is a social union or legal contract between individuals that creates kinship. It is an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged in a variety of ways, depending on the culture or subculture in which it is found. Such a union may also be called matrimony. Marriage is usually recognized by the state, a religious authority, or both. It is often viewed as a contract. Civil marriage is the legal concept of marriage as a governmental institution irrespective of religious affiliation, in accordance with marriage laws of the jurisdiction. If recognized by the state, by the religion(s) to which the parties belong or by society in general, the act of marriage changes the personal and social status of the individuals who enter into it.

A wedding:

This is where you pledge to your other the intent and desire to love and cherish them. This is normally announced and demonstrated in front of friends, family and loved ones. This is what most little girls plan multiple times throughout their lives and are normally prepared in grandeur and spectacle.

Committment:

The intent to dedicate oneself or ideals to a single purpose or person. This can happen outside of a ceremony or legal practice.

Now that we have defined what is what... you can be married in the eyes of the law, the eyes of whatever god you pray to, and to the person you wish.

You can have a wedding as many times as you wish, there is no hard and fast rule.

So knock yourselves out. Get married and get it out of the way for the two of you get started on the next process, then for your loved ones and family, do it up right and make it special!


Just when we thought we winning the rat race... along comes a faster rat (i.e USCIS)
