Congratulations! Did you expedite your case at NVC? If not, I suppose that's great news for others from Costa Rica.

No, I didn't expedite at any point.

Congratulations!  So based on your OP, you were married online, and then went and visited your spouse after the online ceremony.  I think this is key relative to the online wedding.  Did they ask about the timeline there?

You and your husband's process is one of the fastest I've seen during this season of unique circumstances. 

 

Congratulations to you both and may your lives together be enriched.

Congratulations 🥳 

 

I hope you don’t mind my asking a few questions - this has become a more frequent occurrence and some times have always looked like an impediment to this kind of marriage so the more we can point to the successful outcome situation the better future members can look to how to do this correctly. 

 

You aren’t based in Utah correct?

 

Neither of you were present with the officiant or in the same state as the officiant when the marriage took place - it was a marriage where neither of the participants are present?

 

Where is the marriage certificate registered - Utah, your state, or where he is?

 

You say he was asked where he was married - did he say it was online in Utah but he was in his home country or did he just answer simply Utah? 
 

If just simply answering Utah were there any follow up questions about travel to the US that he had to correct? 

 

Thanks for coming along to let of this success - proxy/online marriages have rarely been reported as successfully ending in a visa that we never have an example to point to.

Just now, isis375 said:

Thank you! 

I am in Louisiana, neither of us were present in Utah, nor together, nor with the officiant physically. The marriage certificate and the marriage itself is legally considered to have occured in Utah. 

When they asked where he was married, he answered that it was online due to COVID and explained to the officer . I had been worried about answering this way, but he says the officer was just curious about it, not judgmental and did not have any follow up questions to the answer. 

If you or anyone else has further questions, please ask! That's why I am sharing this, because I don't know of any of successes with online marriage yet!

Thank you for this. That’s great that he was curious but not judgemental and that your husband explained it fully so they have it on record that they know it was an online marriage (just in case at a later stage interview there is an officer who does have a prejudice). 
 

All the best in the rest of his journey.
