US Divorce Decree for London Embassy?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have my interview in London on Tuesday.

 

I have a scanned copy of my fiance's divorce decree ready to take. I have seen conflicting information on this site about whether I will require the original or if the scanned copy will be enough.

 

The scanned copy was included in the original I129F and approved.

 

Has anyone been to interview in the last few months and have any information about this?

 

Many Thanks!

The documents taken to the London  interview are all about the beneficiary. Nothing is needed from the US Petitioner except the I-134 Affidavit of Support and one proof of income. The required documents are listed on the London embassy website. https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/fiancee-2/required-documents/

 

Everywhere it says "you", "your", or "yourself", they are speaking to the person applying for the visa who will be interviewed.

From that page:

You are required to obtain the original or certified copy, and one photocopy (with the exception of your passport and photographs) of the following documents for yourself and each family member applying for a visa.

 

There is a UK forum on Visa Journey where you would get better London answers at this interview stage.

Hi Wuozopo, 

 

Just to check I am not being dense then . . .  as I have never been married I have no Divorce Decree to bring and they do not need to see anything from my petitioner other than the i134, bank account information for all accounts and the latest tax filings (as they are self employed).

Correct to both.

The embassy list has many things that won't apply to every K1 like military records, deed poll for a name change, police certificates from other countries, etc. If it doesn't apply to you, the one going to the interview, then you ignore that item. In case you have been reading too many posts from other countries, I believe it is the Phillipines that requires a certificate of never being married. There is no such thing in the UK and not a requirement at a London K1 interview. Just follow the London embassy's list and you will be fine. It is not an intimidating interview. It is a very short chat standing at a glass window/counter like at the post office.

If the requirements don't express that you need a copy or original the rule of thumb would be you can't go wrong with an original and a copy. You present the original and copy to the CO and you can request the original be returned and the CO can keep the copy. They typically will abide by that since they did touch and feel the original. Usually copies are only required from the USC unless specified by the consulate.

 

I believe I helped with what is needed for the interview (P3 letter) for the UK. If not let me know and I can repost them for you.
