DCF in London on work visa

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a British citizen and my fiance is US. She has been here for about 18months on 6month work visas (which have been extended each time). The current visa she is on runs out in August

We will be getting married before she leaves for the US, and I was wondering if we would be qualify to apply for via DCF. We live together in London and have done since last year

She called the London embassy but the person she spoke to didnt know if we would qualify or not and suggested we just file anyway!

thanks for your help

Immigration would rather everyone file via lockbox in the United States, however if a U.S. citizen who has married a foriegnor and has established residency in a foriegn country for at least 6 months and can prove it with copy of lease, local bank account, pictures with newspaper dates in photos, electric bills, cable bills, cell phone bills, etc all in their own name preferably also with their new spouse's name as well, then and only then will the local U.S. Embasy intertain your I-130 application via DCF.

Ok, we can provide tenancy agreement/lease, we have pictures, she has cell phone bills etc etc and she has her permit to work here on the temporary (6month basis i.e she is not here as a student or a vistor). Essentially I want to know if there is any legal reason you can not use DCF in our situation....I dont really want to send it off and have it rejected straight away. She was also told by the embassy staff that if we didnt meet the requirements for DCF they would forward it to the USSC for us - would they do that?
