Birth Certificate at K1 interview

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I’m starting to prepare my documents for the interview (just getting a jump start) and have a question. My fiancée is Cuban, we’ll interview in Guyana. I know that my (petitioner) birth certificate is a requirement. I was married and divorced in the past so my birth certificate has my maiden name but my passport and all other documents has my current name (never changed it at divorce). Is this an issue? Do I need a copy of my previous marriage certificate to explain the name difference? Or is the divorce decree enough to show that? Thanks for any help!

You don't need your U.S. Citizen petitioner fiancé's birth certificate for the K-1 Visa interview. That is submitted with the I-129F Petition packet.

 

I would think that divorce decree should suffice. However, if you still have a copy of the marriage certificate, then I think that it would be better to bring it, just in case.

you do need to show either you birth certificate or your passport for Guyana, it is on the checklist. I would just take whatever you have that explains the discrepancy. Also, I would offer the passport as proof of citizenship at the interview, let them specifically ask for the birth certificate. There is a facebook group of about 200 of us with Cuban significant others who are all in the process at various stages including the people who have already completed the process all the way through citizenship, we all share information and answer Cuba process specific questions. If you would like to join, send me a message and I'll send you the name.
