Gosh how I wished I would have found this site before I sent my I-130. I am from Texas and married my VNese bride here in VN. We have since decided to move to the USA. I just learned my first mistake was that I sent the I-864 along with 130. I have read here it is important to have an engagement ceremony. We never had one. Is there a definitions area I this site for all the acronyms you folks use? Should I try to retrieve my 864. I've sent the pkg to a family member to have a money order for the $420 Chicago lick box fee. I could ask them to remove it I suppose. Also, many years ago (1989) while I the military I married my Italian secretary and she was naturalized. I know I will learn a lot here.

I am also new in this forum and want to say hi to all members. I am here to get some new ideas and information about traveling. I am a tourist and found this community highly interesting for me. I am always in search of such types of communities because through these communities we get a lot of information about travel.

The divorce should not be an issue. Sometimes if the divorce occurred right before the other marriage but being divorced doesn't automatically cause an issue. As for not doing the engagement ceremony, as long as you have enough proof that the relationship is a bonafide marriage then not doing an engagement ceremony is fine. Here is the guide for the process http://www.visajourney.com/content/i130guide1 and make sure you follow that and the papers you filled out and everything that is required in the guide is sent.

Madani,

I was not all that concerned with the divorce, but the fact I have sponsored a previous immigrant. I was just wondering if they might look at it with a jaundice eye thinking I'm an immigrant factory. That wife sti lives on the USA as does her children. All have done very well for themselves. This marriage started in 1989, she got the fast track military naturalization . We divorced in 2006.
