we are going next week, Groom has to work... I am a friend of future bride & groom...I will be traveling with Mexican fiancee Lupita & 2 kids age 10 & 14...

my question is do we need to bring passport original of the petitioner (USC Groom?) seems weird to have that in original form with us!

just wondering since we were going to bring a copy!

I think a birth certificate is good enough to prove he's a US citizen. I will be going to Juarez with my fiance and I figured he might as well take it in the consular interview since I'll have my passport in Juarez. If I weren't going to Juarez with my future husband, I would give him a copy of my passport that was notarized or something so that the CO would know it's the real deal.

Also, I had a name change as a child so my birth cert. has one name and my passport has another. The name on all the forms for the visa are under my newer name (passport name). I also attached to my birth cert. my Legal Change of Name document issued by the state of California. My case is a bit different bc of my name.

I am wondering why you have to bring both DS 156K and the DS 260 .... the instruations state the DS 260 is to be only used if you have file have an approved I-130 immigrant application on file. This is confusing me! Where does it say you have to have both??

Thank you for posting this! and Mz. Barracuda-- in the k1 visa instructions provided by the consulate it says that you must fill out a DS-260.

http://ciudadjuarez.usconsulate.gov/root/pdfs/pk1iv.pdf

only pay attention the directions in spanish-- in english it says you need to fill out a DS-160, it's a typo you do NOT need a DS-160 (i think lol)

What is the DS-157? I haven't read of this one before.

What are you going to include for proof of engagement? Also, are three yrs of tax returns really needed? I though 3 yrs worth of tax returns were only needed for the I-864 form not the I-134?
