Living overseas while applying-help!

Hello everyone!

So I have a few questions, if you could help with either of them that would be greatly appreciated :)

I have been living in New Zealand for the last 3 years with my fiancé and we are finally ready to make the big move to the US (I'm the US citizen). First question: Am I able to send the petition away from overseas? I know this may seem like a silly question but I haven't seen many posts from people living overseas with their fiancé. If I have just missed them please point me in the right direction :) Second: Since I have been living and working over in New Zealand is it ok that I don't have any income in the US? Will my evidence of income from NZ be enough?

Thanks for any help you can give!

Yes you can send it from abroad, it is not that unusual.

The income from NZ won't count; you will need to sponsor your fiance on assets, or get a US based co-sponsor.

Hey everyone,

I was just wondering if you have to prove evidence of domicile in this case of the US Citizen/sponsor living abroad?

I'm in a similar situation myself whereby my partner has been living with me in Australia for a few years and I haven't really read anything conclusively stating whether a K1 Visa filed abroad has to prove this.

Thanks in advance,
