Has anyone applied for K-3 while living in another country. I know that to be approved, you have to show that you have domicile in the US or have made efforts to re-establish domicile, such as gotten a job, enrolled kids in school there.

I live in Canada with my husband, but I still have ties down there such as bank, and I still use my mother's address for several billing addresses. The problem is that I need to be here up until the move because I need to help pack/and drive down with my husband. So finding a job and getting a job will be difficult before we're actually down there. Especially because we wont' really know the exact date that we'll be able to move. So I can' t apply to these jobs stating "I'll be available to work in maybe a month, maybe not."

Does anyone know if you can have enough to establish domicile without a job?

Canada is fairly flexible with people on this topic--the US Consular Section in Montreal specifically. How will you satisfy the I-864? Or, do you plan on having a Joint Sponsor?

It sounds like you are unaware of the quicker method for USCs living outside the US, casually called DCF/Direct Consular Filing. Read up on it here: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.ph...om&page=dcf and in the DCF Forum here at VJ. There is a pinned post with all the info for Canadians.

Seiren,

I'm not so sure.

For an immigrant visa the petitioner needs US domicile, since the USC must be the sponsor of the immigrant and sponsorship requires domicile. But for a K3 visa a sponsor is not necessarily needed (although one is in most cases) and if a sponsor is needed it does not need to be the petitioner. You will be able to re-established domicile, if in fact you don't have it now, in plenty of time for your husband to adjust status.

meauxna's thought bears looking into.
