Hello to all. My name is Gary and I am a US citizen living in Florida. I recently spent time with and asked a wonderful woman from and living in Belarus to marry me one day and she said yes. I have been reading all about the k-1 process and while it does not seem to difficult to understand and folow I do have a few questions about some of the initial 1-129F and G-325 applications. Should I ask them here or in the K-1 area? Thanks in advance....Gary

Best to ask K-1 questions in the K-1 area! Please also see the step by step guide in the guide section. It may answer some of your questions. They also have example forms in the example form section. Both very very helpful things to check out.

Welcome and good luck on your journey :)

You will probably get the most informative responses in the K-1 area but like the previous poster said, the guide sections are really good too!

Welcome!

Yes, the K1 area is most appropriate, or the RUB (Russia, Ukraine, Belarus) forum for country specific questions.
