I’m new on this site!  I have a question? I will be getting married in Ghana in October ,  I am a US citizen. Can mail my  paperwork from Ghana to the United States USCIS  I wanted to send the paperwork off soon as we get  married or should I wait until I get back to United States to send them off.

To my knowledge, yes. Can send from anywhere BUT international shipping can be slow. How long will you be staying in Ghana? If only for a few weeks I'd wait until I arrive in US then send it, that'll take roughly 5 days to arrive vs potential weeks internationally. 

 

You don't want to beat the petition back to the States.

There is a lot to know when marrying in  an African country 

1.  hope this is not our 1st visit as that is a poor plan

2.  hope you plan to make several trips before the interview to help get approval

3.  not a bad idea to take the application with you in case you need to get answers from him

4.  you plan to marry in 2019 , so get a POA from him to allow you to do the W7 form for him and add him to your 2019 tax returns

5.  Bless you both

 

forgot   Read the portal for Ghana by clicking on the portal guide above

and follow the embassy reviews 

also do a timeline when you do send in the application as it helps VJ members follow your progress and answer relevant questions and you will have many

also follow the guides above to save any hastles later on

 I was trying to have it done because I keep hearing about a policy change October 15th I’m not sure if it’s true or not. I’m totally worried about them changing the income level to 62,000 a year.  Did anyone else hear about this change that Donald Trump is trying to make

Wait until you get back, so you have evidence of how long you were together in person on this, your second visit.

I didn't ask how long.  I said wait until you get back SO YOU HAVE EVIDENCE of how long you were there.  Your passport stamps are the primary evidence of time spent together in person.  If you file from Ghana, you will not have the return stamp.
