Change of Address after Filing DCF

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

To summarize, I met my fiance in Spain. I am American with EU citizenship as well, and he is British but had been living there for 10+ years. We moved to England because I had better job opportunities here, and now we want to get married and start out lives together in the US. So here is our tentative plan:

1) August 2013: Get married here in the UK

2) September 2013: File CR-1 through DCF here in London

3) October 2013: I move back to the US to look for a job so that I can meet the sponsorship requirements (co-sponsor is not an option for me unfortunately)

My fiance will also have to move because he could not afford our flat on his own. He will probably move back to Spain, where he can make more money in his old job, have more friends, etc

Here's where my question lies... Can he move to Spain after we've filed for the CR-1 through the Embassy in London? He could come back for his medical exam and interview. If so, can we use his sister's permanent UK address as his address so all correspondence will be sent there? Does that pose problems filling out the forms if we put his sister's address where it asks for his address. Do we write an extra note asking correspondence to be sent to his sister, etc?

My other question, which I've mentioned briefly in another post, is does anyone know any US citizen who has done this? i.e. moved back to the US after filing a visa petition in order to get a job to meet the sponsorship requirements before their spouse's interview. Has anyone been successfully accepted as a sponsor after recently starting a job?

If he moves to Spain, it's kinda misrepresenting to DCF London and pretend to live at his sister's in my opinion. Not sure it's advantageous to move when there's 2 trips to London, documents to gather, and he could be approved to move to the US before Christmas with careful paperwork and planning. DCF is pretty fast.
