G-325A for K1

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Country: China
Timeline

I am a Peace Corps volunteer in China and I would like to marry my fiance, but I can't because it is forbidden by Peace Corps. So I am filling out the K1 visa application from China and then sending it to the United States where my friend has agreed to send it to the Texas lockbox. I don't know if this is the best way, but if anyone has a better suggestion, I would love to hear it.

I was also wondering about form G-325A. The example form on Visajourney is expired and so I went to the state department website and their form expired August 2012. Is this a problem or am I still able to fill it out?

Thank you!

When are you finished with Peace Corps? Have you factored in when the application will be approved, etc and the timing of your return to the states? Is having a relationship also forbidden by Peace Corps? If so, won't the government know that you were involved while in Peace Corps? I'm just curious as I'm clueless about Peace Corps rules....

Yes, the specific language of Peace Corps policy is that if you want to marry a national of another country during your service, you must talk with Peace Corps for approval. I don't plan to marry her until after my service. I am trying to fill out the forms now so she can come back with me to the United States. I have also heard that the K1 would make it easier for my fiance to get the CR1 too.

Sorry, but that is not correct. Either you're going for the K-1 or the CR-1. The CR-1 is for married couples, the K-1 is for unmarried couples. You'd do well to read the comparison chart and the respective guides (but ignore the K-3 info) to know what's involved and then make an informed decision on which is best for your situation: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.php?autocom=custom&page=compare

Also, to answer your other question, it's best to check the USCIS.gov website to ensure you have the latest version of all forms. The State Dept. is not part of the process at this point.

The G-325A form, for example, available on the USCIS site will let you know that you're using the latest version as well as if earlier versions are accepted: http://www.uscis.gov/g-325a

As long as the form (G-325A) is taken from the USCIS website, it's okay for use even if it has an expiration date. Usually there will be a note to that effect on the top of the page.
