Hello, everybody!

I've seen topics like this before but none was like our case, so I may need some help. Me and my soon-to-be husband are planning to move to the US. He was born in Brazil (so was I) but his mother is american so he is an american citizen. He never lived there. And my question is: Is it possible for us to apply for IR1-CR1 even if we don't have a house or a job in the US? (we are planning to rent one before leaving and get jobs once we get there). I know we can filled all forms abroad and our parents will be the sponsors.

(I apologize for any mistakes, english is my second language)

Thanks! :):)

There is a very long thread about domicile, that would be his first stop.

You can sponsor by assets or using a co sponsor.

Taxes is another thing that comes up, has he been filing them?
