Re-establish of domicile in the US proof needed after interview

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife has just conducted a visa interview and due to her previous overstay problem, I, the partitioner has been staying with her and 2 USC children outside to the US most of the time. However, I do have a US business though I have run it remotely, bank accounts, and property purchased back in 2015. The overstaying part appears to be resolved as the wait is over but the consular offer is asking more evidence re-establishment of domicile on the green paper at the end of the interview. I was wondering what more do I need as I did show my US-based business and property which I am intent to run as soon as I am back? It also sounds like he wants a written plan/letter for the documents but he wrapped it up all in a hurry.

You are currently working remotely. As such, the employment is not evidence of having US domicile...there is nothing that compels you to change that arrangement.

Some examples of items for either US domicile or intent to establish US domicile are in the NVC wiki: https://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/NVC_Process

 

What consulate? For most, the bar is fairly low and showing plans to move back will suffice - plans of where to live, moving expenses, school enrollment/plans, etc.

Were you at the interview?   For my wife's interview the CO had me come back with her later that afternoon and was asked about how I was going to re establish domicile.   It was easy since I already owned a condo, had a car titled in the US, paid insurance and voted.

The interview took place in Hong Kong. I have a condo in CA and seems like they want more info to proof as each consulate is different.

I thought you had to be resident in the School District to register them.
