DS-230 Question 21a

Quick dumb one.

In this question I of course named my spouse (who is the US citizen). She is living in Canada with me now and has been for 3 years. Do I indicate that she will be accompanying me? In fact I am accompanying her.

My inclination is to answer as below indicating her status as a USC and my sponsor:

Spouse - (put her name) - US citizen and my sponsor

What do you think?

I think you should answer "NONE'. Accompanying in case means "immigrating". And your USC spouse is not immigrating with you, just traveling along.

Out of curiousity: Is your wife going to file the I-130 in Canada? Did you know this is available now for US citizens living in Canada?

Thanks everyone for the feedback.

We have already submitted our I-130 Meauxna - back in Sept. just prior to the change (what a bummer). Now we are awaiting the paperwork from NVC.

Drat---I thought I remembered something like that. Oh well, you get the full scenic drive! :lol:

PS: I PMd you about my financials you asked about.
