US military married to Korean National starting Immigration process

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I'm very new to these forums. I'm currently stationed in Korea with the Air Force, and recently got married to Korean National. We just went through a semi long process of getting our International Marriage Checklist approved to follow USFK regulation 600-240, international marriage. Inside the marriage checklist are required documents such as Visa Medical Examination of Visa applicant, Family registration, background check and other critical information. I'm in the process of compiling my wife's documents for her I-130. Asides the required forms, what else do i need to provide to better justify her petition? I have started a template and notified close family and friends to write an affidavit for our marriage legitimacy.

Is there anything else that will help our case to her I-130

You're in luck since South Korea allows for direct consulate filing.

please take a look at this EZ guide. There is a bunch of evidence of a genuine relationship at the bottom to help figure out what to send. Also anything you can add your wife to regarding your military stuff like as your dependent would also be helpful http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/EZGuideSpouse
