DS156/156K Questions

Timeline

Anyone willing to give this a look through, blessings be upon you.

Disclaimer: I've looked at the examples and crossed checked her's with them. Still I want to be sure. Perhaps I'm over analyzing.

Pursuing K3.

My wife filled the form and is asking me to review them. Now I'm awash with jitters and trying to be circumspect as possible.

1. For both the DS156/DS156k - are they to be filled in English or Native language for her name?

DS156k

Question 4c: How was marriage terminated? Answer N/A? - We're married presently.

Question 4d: If presently married, how will you marry your US citizen fiance? Explain - Don't get this at all.

Attach evidence of financial support - I assume attach the I-134 affidavit of support (they use the I-134)?

DS156

2. My wife's passport is in two languages - Do we will fill out her personal details in English as they appear in her passport?

3. Any question that there is no answer for, is it safe to put N/A?

Question 14 - National identification number? Don't know what that is. I assume N/A?

Question 16 - Home phone, etc. Do we include full phone - country code, city code, home number? Also, it asks for fax, business, pager - would this be her office phone at her place of employment?

Question 22 - Expected date to arrive in the US - How is this handled? She wants to fly her as soon as possible once the visa is approved, but god knows when that date is.

Question 25 - Name & telephone numbers of persons in the US who you will be staying with or visiting for tourism or business in the US? She's not visiting, nor coming for business or tourism - What do we put?

Question 26 - How long you intend to stay in US? Answer Permanently - is it acceptable?

Question 27 - Purpose of trip? Rejoin Spouse and Relocation to USA - is it acceptable?

Question 33 - Do you intend to the study in the US? My wife wishes to study after coming her, but she has not applied nor been accepted to any university. She's not coming specifically to study. Should I answer Yes or no, and what explanation?

Question 36 - Has anyone filed an immigrant visa petition on your behalf? I assume the answer is yes here, because it was I that submitted the I-130/I-129 petitions to start the K3 process. Correct?

Question 37 - Are any of the following persons in the US? Another tricky one.. Husband - Check yes and state USC (abbreviate US citizen) There's the fiance box - Were married already - check no here, correct?

Is your wife required to fill out a DS-156K? From what I understand it's just for fiances. The consulate I'm going through here in Canada doesn't require it for K3 applicants.

1. Fill out in English. The form says "as in passport" and since hers is bilingual, use the English.

2. Fill out in English as it appears in her passport.

3. Use "NONE" or "N/A" depending on the question.

Question 14 - Some countries have National Identification Numbers. If she doesn't have it, put N/A. On my form, it actually says "if applicable".

Question 16 - I would put the full international phone. Include only the numbers she has. So if her fax is at her work, include that. If there isn't any, put NONE.

Question 22 - I just estimated a date. I don't think it's that important what date is put in.

Question 25 - I put in my USC Husband's name and addresss.

Question 26 - I put in Permanently upon visa issuance.

Question 27 - I put in Reunification with spouse.

Question 33 - I think I would put in no since that is not her primary reason for the visa.

Question 36 - I put in "yes" and put in "husband" because of the I-130.

Question 37 - Check "Yes" to husband, put in US Citizen and the rest are "no" unless she has other relatives in the U.S.

>> 1. For both the DS156/DS156k - are they to be filled in English or Native language for her name?

Fill Out names in english except for the questions that specifically say to fill in Native Language.

>>DS156k

>> Question 4c: How was marriage terminated? Answer N/A? - We're married presently.

>> Question 4d: If presently married, how will you marry your US citizen fiance? Explain - Don't get this at all.

Are they making you fill out the DS-156K? I ask that cause the DS-156K title is Fiancee Visa Application, so al ot of the questions are geared for couples that are not married.

>> Attach evidence of financial support - I assume attach the I-134 affidavit of support (they use the I-134)?

I don't know if they use it for a K-3 or not, I assume so. But all supporting docs also.

DS156

Or leave it blank

Whatever applies

Soon after visa is approved.

>>Question 37 - Are any of the following persons in the US? Another tricky one.. Husband - Check yes and state USC >> (abbreviate US citizen) There's the fiance box - Were married already - check no here, correct?

Yes, you can type out US Citizen, I think it fits in the space.

Thats what I would do but use your judgement cause I could be wrong.

Good Luck!
