PLEASE HELP - Cuban fiancee K1 interview scheduled in Guyana July, but required to schedule Documents Check first in Havana?

I'm in a pickle.

 

1.  My Cuban fiancee has an interview scheduled in July. It is in Guyana. But the checklist says that we first have to schedule a document check at the Havana embassy before she can go to the interview in Guyana... my lawyer never shared this with me and I found out Friday.  The problem is that I was planning to bring my original documents i.e. birth certificate, etc to the interview in Guyana for her. But now it sounds like she has to have all those originals in Cuba for the document check, and I don't believe I have time to get to Cuba to get those to her before our interview date. This has added a lot of uncertainty and I want to know, has anyone experienced this? Does Havana need my originals, or will they accept the copies for now and allow us to bring the originals to Guyana?  Please tell me everything you know about this document check in Havana before going to the interview in Guyana.   Thank you so much for your help.

 

2.  The checklist also says I need an i-864. I never filled one out and it looks like a daunting task. Do we really need this also for K1?

Hi,

 

I really don't think they would require birth certificate of the petitioner..even if they do, I think you can just email over a scanned copy. For the the I-864, it is not required for k1 visa. What you actually need to fill out is I-134 which is very similar to I-864 but embassy is much forgiving with this one. You would be required to fill out I-864 at later stage while adjusting the status within USA.

 

Thanks!

Don’t stress over this . 

The document check is not required however it could be helpful. I couldn’t go to the doc check myself because it’s too much money and traveling and time SO I sent colored copies of my documents . And all I did was replace them once I got to Guyana. 

You mentioned a lawyer... I wish you could’ve reached out before , lawyers are no good for K-1 visas specially for Cuba .

( unless some serious stuff going on ) 

1-134 is required . That’s the affidavit .  I will PM you a group from Facebook that will be very helpful for you . My case didn’t go as planned but it wasn’t because I was missing documents .. :)

Hello! I’m new here and haven’t officially started the K-1 process (waiting for my divorce from my first husband to be final) but I was planning on getting a lawyer. So I’m curious why you say they are not useful, I rather use that money for the rest of the process if I don’t need them.
