Using Parents house in US for Domicile?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

For establishment of Domicile for the CR-1:

I'm married to a Peruvian and since July 2014 we have rented an apartment together in Lima. I have only entered on tourist visas, usually for 2 months sometimes longer, then return to the US for 1 week and come back to Peru on another tourist visa.

However even though I live in Peru, I have maintained employment with a US employer (working through VPN from home). All of my US bank accounts, credit cards, health insurance, drivers license, etc. -- ALL are registered to my parents' address in Florida, and have always been since I moved to Lima.

We don't actually intend to live with my parents (or even in the same city), but effectively that could be considered a "home" for us. Has anyone been in a similar situation and had luck with it?

Our plan is to move together and find an apartment in a city about 4 hours from my parents' house (the city where my employer is based). But I have no idea where exactly that will be yet. So will I be fine using my parents address?

Any insights on this? Or could someone maybe point me to some previous posts regarding the rules in general for the domicile requirement? If it's recommended that I first move back to the US without her (which would suck!) I need to figure that out ASAP. We are hoping to move to the US in October.
