Well then marry in Ireland

There will be a question asking which consulate abroad you would like your petition to be sent to, put Pakistan

Good luck

My husband (a British citizen) and I (a USC) flew to Jamaica to get married. He returned to the UK and I to the US, and we will begin the CR-1 visa process. He will interview in London. You can get married anywhere, just make sure you get your marriage certificate. Never hurts to ask for duplicate copies (I got 8 just in case!).

For a CR-1 visa the interview can take place in the region of your legal residence, in this situation it would be Pakistan

For a K-3 visa, the interview will take place in the area where your wedding took place, in this case, Ireland

To prevent any confusion, DO NOT file the I-129F for the K-3 visa, since Ireland will be where the K-3 visa intervew will take place

Stick with the, and only the, I130 petition

Good luck

yes I got it now. I actually dont have any status in ireland. so it will be problem for me. thats why I want to back to pakistan and apply from there. I am asylum seeker here. so they wont accept me when I dont have any ID and any status.

Nmcraford is an example for me. we can marry in ireland then I will back to pakistan and wil file spouse visa from pakistan. :)

The others already gave the correct answer.

Not directly what you asked for, but be sure to check into Ireland's requirement for weddings. I know when I lived there and my husband came over, there was a residency requirement of 6 weeks (I think... maybe it was 30 days) for the foreign spouse, so it would need to be a long holiday for her!

Oh I think they have changed now. they need to give 3 months notification. and if spouse is living outside of ireland then we can send our documents and she needs to be here 5 days before we are marrying. its like I have appointment for 1st of july, on that day i will give notification of marriage and then we will marry some time in oct. my fiance needs to be here 5 days before. that is what they told me on fone . I hope its correct information.
