Hi everyone.

I am new to this forum and I am getting confused with document requirements for a K-1 visa and was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction. I am a canadian and my boyfriend is American. I have been looking at the USCIS site forms and instructions and this site. My question is for documents required if previously marriage and divorced: 1. Do I have to provide a copy of my marriage certificate from my first marriage or just the divorce order or do I need a copy of a divorce certificate? 2. Do the copies need to be certified, notarized or just copies?

Thanks you so much for your help.

when you send your I-129F package to USCIS it can be a *copy of your divorce degree.When you have your interview you must take a certified copy with you. Good Luck :)

* a copy of the certified degree ofcourse*

Thanks so much tru_loves_journey. The only issue is that the province of BC does not issue decrees anymore. They have divorce orders or you can get a divorce certificate. Perhaps the divorce order would work? It just says divorced 31 days after this day with no specific ended date on it.

Thanks again :)

I hope someone on VJ from Canada will write soon to help you, If not find a member from Canada to ask them about that. It's very important you have the correct document, you don't want an RFE. Good Luck :)

ok So because I got a denial in this area contact Untie The Knot and get your "DIVORCE CERTIFICATE" if you don't already have it. You will need to bring it to the interview. So when you receive it make a copy to leave with the consulate. You need certified true copies of ALL marriages terminated. I'm not sure if we have to bring marriage certificates of previous marriages but I got them just in case and have put together a package to leave of all copies of documents. (birth certificates, including children, even if they are not immigrating with me, divorce certificates and marriage certificates showing start and end of previous marriages. Remember any of the originals you want to keep make a copy to leave with them. Hope some of this helps. It takes 3-6 weeks to get the divorce certificate.
