Fiance has Children, when do we supply the legal documents showing she has sole parental rights?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My Mexican National fiancé, who currently lives in Sonora Mexico will be bringing two of her children with her when we marry. Her daughter who will be turning 18 in October and her youngest daughter age, (13)

the children's biological father is a citizen of Spain and he also resides full time in Spain. My fiancé and her ex were never married, when my fiancé left Spain and moved back to Mexico, she obtained from the courts in Spain, a legal document the biological father signed giving all parental rights to the children's mother, my fiance.

My question is, when should we supply those legal documents? Should I supply them with the I-129F, or should we wait to supply them during the interview with the consulate?

Sorry if my questions are repetitive. I tried performing a search and it seems like none of the situations I read about applied to our situation.
