Need Help (Military filer) DCF Frankfurt

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Let's start with the basics I am an USC in Germany serving for the USAF I recently married a Filipina Citizen. I just want to make sure I have everything before I make my appointment to drop off the paperwork (rather hand it to them than wait on mail). From my understanding I will need the following.


G325A Hers and mine

Filing fee of $420

2 Passport style photos white background of each of us.

Marriage certificate copy

USC documents proving citizenship (my birth certificate and copy of my passport and copy of military ID)

With regards to the G325A I am confused as to the address for living I have written N/A since we do not plan to live in the states and I will be stationed in Germany another 2 years possibly 3. Will they reject it do to me not having a stateside address.

Her name also has not been legally changed I don't forsee that being a problem until after the petition is approved and she arrives as she will want to get her name changed then.

Is there a way around the passport photo as we did not get one done while I was in the Philippines and as some of you may know the mail system is not the fastest or most reliable.

One more question and I apologize for the wall of text so much happening in my head right now. But is a cover page needed if I am going to go to the office and personally hand the papers in?

Thank you any one for replies and for your help just want to get this done and have the wife with me!

I was curious to see what replies you would get to this as I wasn't sure whether or not my first thoughts would be relevant as you are in the military. But what struck me was that the Green Card is for people who will be permanent residents in the US so if she is not actually going to be living in the US for a few years would she be eligible? I appreciate that there may be a different set of rules for you as you are stationed overseas and I know nothing at all about this. Why don't you try posting your question in the general I-130 forum; there will be more traffic there.


Good luck.
