Issue collecting Marriage Certificate from Oman

I figured I would post here because I'm not sure where else to turn at the moment. I'm a U.S. citizen who got married last month in Oman to my wife who is a Bangladeshi foreigner (under a Residence visa). We are trying to collect the marriage certificate from the authorities in Oman but they keep asking for some kind of a support letter from the U.S. Embassy that acknowledges the marriage or indicates that they have no objection with the marriage that took place. Essentially they want the U.S. embassy to request for the release the marriage certificate on my behalf. I don't understand why we are being requested for this, but I talked to the embassy and they asked me to send an email with the details. I sent an email to them explaining our situation, and the response I got from them is "We cannot issue such letter from the Consulate". They didn't provide any explanation nor any possible solution. So I'm not sure what to do now. Our marriage contract was signed on our wedding day by Omani officiants, along with the proper witness signatures and everything. I don't know what these formalities are, but at this point I am not even sure if we are considered legally married at all. Has anyone had to deal with something like this?

Police reports, validity issue

Hi everyone,

Hoping to get some clear answers here.

So, we have applied for the K1 and waiting for our NOA1. As for the police reports, I know we have to get one from all countries where we have lived 6 months or more after the age of 17.

Keeping that in mind, I have two countries.

-My home country

-My current residence country

I haven't lived in my home country for more the 6 months since 2013. I only go for yearly vacation, maybe 2-4 weeks.

The question is can I go ahead and get my police report from there as I do not intend to move back there whilst this process is going on? Is there a validity to these reports in the eyes of the embassy.

For my current residence country I am hoping to get it closer to when I have a decision (NOA2).

Thanks for the input!

Income and I134, K1 Visa

Hi everyone,

I am planning to apply for my fiance's K1 visa. I do have a couple of questions regarding the income and I134. I called a couple of lawyer offices and none of them were ready to give me a paid consultation (1 hour or something). They offered packages which were thousands of dollars (4 k being min and as I understand from all the YouTube videos and forums is that lawyers are not essential for this process unless our case has unique circumstances.

So, hoping the community here can help me. Some background:

Fiance is an Indian citizen currently working in Oman. We have been together for 4 and a half years. Lived in the US for the first three (We were students at the same uni) and then he came back to his home country. We have met twice since October 2019 (We would have more if COVID wasn't a thing).

Here are the questions:

1. I made higher than 125% of the poverty line last year (2020), but before that in 2019 I was a student and didn t earn that much (approx 14k). Will 1 year of over 125% be enough?
2. Do I need to include the I134 with my I129F package or does my fianc submit it at the interview in his country?
3. If my fianc has to show it, do I need to courier him the original I134 with originals for supporting docs such as W2/Payslips/Letter from my employer?

Another random question,

4) I lived in a dorm from 2016 to 2020. My physical address was my dorm but my tax address was my grandma's (as that was my home away from college). In the address history do I use physical address or tax/important document address?

Thank you so much in advance. I am really hoping to not shell out money for a lawyer. And with all the external factors, I am hoping to do everything correct from our side to avoid any delay.

Appreciate any help!

Hello. I want to know if the embassy will schedule the interview at the beneficiary's country of residence or would it be their home country? Basically which country's embassy receives the case for processing is my question.
