Your living arrangement won't come up at all unless you need household members as joint sponsors. K3 is dead. CR1 and IR1 are the currently available spouse visa categories.

Thanks!

We were living together in the Ivory Coast but because of the situation, I had to leave the country. The US Embassy is currently closed in the Ivory Coast and they are not sure when they will open for visa services. I am about 5 1/2 months pregnant with our first child, so we decided that I go back to the States while things calm down in the Ivory Coast. I was just offered a job here in California, and I would be making enough to sponsor my husband alone even with the baby. However, does it matter that I will not have tax returns for this new job? How wouldl I be able to prove that I make enough? Would it help with time, if they knew that we lived together for the last 6 months, however we have been together for 3 years?

But if the embassy is still closed how does he go for interviews? would he have to go to another country for that interview?

Sorry for all the questions, we just weren't planning to take this route.

Thanks

Since you really don't know and cannot know just now, even where, much less when there will be an interview, nobody could possibly know whether you will have filed a tax return before that date.

You can ask your employer to give a letter on the company letter head that you are employed there, how long you have worked there, your annual income, and you possition there. You can also provide paystubs as well. Proof of relationship is great to have. Keep all phone, chat, letters rental receipts, plane tickets and other expenses you may have together. I suggest that you go to your local Immigration office and ask about the embassy in Ivory Coast before you file. You can schedule an appointment with an Immigration officer by info pass at https://infopass.uscis.gov/info_en.php

Good luck, I hope this helps.

If I were you I would contact my congressman's office. I wouldn't worry about where I live. Go ahead and take the job so you can meet the income requirements. It says on the Ivory Coast embassy's website that they will process emergency cases. Good luck!
