Dominican Citizenship for US Citizen Marrying a Dominican?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I realize that this is a US visa journey site but I figured if anyone would know/have information about this topic I would find it here! My fiancée is Dominican and we're in the process of getting married and filing for his AOS after entering on a K1 visa with me. My understanding is that I am entitled to pursue Dominican citizenship as well since I am a female marrying a Dominican man. Has anyone ever done this? If so, any helpful hints or advice? I've found some good info on the internet and it seems like it's a similar process to what we went through for him but for much cheaper for me. :)

The goal is for both of us to have dual citizenship down the road so any advice would be great!

I Believe you have to do the similar process of applying and waiting then getting approved, then living there first. But perhaps there is something like a CR-1... but I believe you still have to live there a while.

~ Jan ??,2013 ~ Service Center ~ Vermont I-129F Packet sent

NOTE: Actual sent date unknown due to lawyer negligence - I delivered ALLForms and PAID Lawyer on Nov 7, 2012 - Lawyer kept saying he sent the packet and USCIS must have lost it. When in reality he failed to send the package and only a new copy to USCIS after I made a legal written demand giving him 10 days to perform or return ALL monies paid to him, due to "non-performance".

(IMO it's better to save your money for visits to or from your Fiancé and just fill it out yourself using the K-1 Guide on VJ and Senior Members... They Rock!!!)
