Quick question. We just found out we need to get CENOMAR for the interview. 
Since, it represent that she has no record of prior marriage, I guess it make sense. 

Tricky part is, how do I order it ? I can order it under "US EMBASSY" and to my wife's address just to be safe. WE don't know which name to put, she changed her last name to mine in all of her government documents. (passport, PRC) 

But Im wondering if NSO has updated their database. If we put her original last name, are we gonna run into any problems during the interview. THANKS !

The CENOMAR is from PSA (was NSO), you can go to most any PSA office to order the CENOMAR.  It can be ordered online also.

 

You would use her married name.

Here is a link to the embassy instructions letter, listing everything that is required for the interview.

 

Not having the CENOMAR for the interview is not the end of the world.  Being the interview is tomorrow, there is no way you will have the CENOMAR in time.  The embassy will issue a 221g (requesting the CENOMAR), you take a copy of the 221g letter/email to PSA, order the CENOMAR, then PSA will have it delivered to the embassy (at this point the embassy wants PSA to deliver it)

I'm confused. Is she applying for k1 Or k3 Visa? CENOMAR is only for person who has no previous marriage. You said that she's your wife so what she needs is a Marriage Certificate.

CENOMAR is required by the embassy for ALL immigrant visas (or as in the case of the K-1 immigrant intent).

 

The process at PSA is to apply for a CENOMAR ... there is only one form for all occasions ;)   If you were NEVER married you will receive a CENOMAR, if you are married or were ever married you will receive an Advisory of Marriage  - CEMAR.    It is that simple.


Visa chase and citizenship.. DONE!

The embassy sent me an email and asked to bring CENOMAR and NSO marriage certificate.

You will take a copy of that email (it is the 221g) to PSA when you order your CENOMAR and marriage certificate.    There are delivery instructions in the email, they will state either that PSA will arrange delivery or you will take the documents to 2GO .

Thanks, We already have to marriage certificate from NSO (thats how we applied for i-130) but the last CENOMAR we got was for church before we married. 

We just ordered 2 copies online, one sent to the US embassy and one to her home. Just gonna play it safe, her interview is on 5/25 and according to the website it will take just 3-4 days.

Did you wife complete CFO already?  If not they will want a copy of the CENOMAR, otherwise I don't know of anyone else that asks for it.

 

No harm in having a backup... that is for sure.  :thumbs:
