Hello all, I am hoping for some guidance on a family members current situation. A friend of my mother wants to marry my uncle who is in Somalia. The problem is Somalia isn't an easy country to immigrate from. The relationship started about 8 years ago when my mother went on a trip to Somalia to visit family. Before the trip my mother asked the friend what she wanted as gift from when she got back and she asked for some clothes. My uncle is a great tailor in Mogadishu and has his own shop. When my mother got back, she brought a lot of clothes back for the friend. The friend in fell in love with the clothes and this was the start to a strange relationship. The friend demanded to speak to my uncle to thank him via video chat. From there on it became an every weekend thing where she would come to speak with my uncle. My mother has gone on a trip to Somalia almost every year after and the friend would always send gifts and money to my uncle and ask for more clothes. Last year she asked my grandmother and mother if they would be okay with her and my uncle getting married. My mom told her she had no problem with it but my uncle would have to approve. My mother spoke to my uncle and told her about what he though, he said that he's had feeling for her too but didn't think it would be possible with how things were in Somalia. The friend decided she would go with my mother this year to see him in person to see if the feeling would be the same. As soon as they landed and met, she called and said yes she wants to do the whole marriage process and bring him to America. I want to help but I am not sure where to start. Plus there are a few problems that I told them about:

  1. She is 14 years older than him but he doesn't mind, as they both don't want children as they both have children already. She's 60 and he's 46.
  2. Although she is Muslim, she does not speak Somali. All communication have been through mother, grandmother, or cousin (Uncle's daughter who speaks English).
  3. He's been married before but his wife died over15 years ago.

Now that she is there for the next 2 months, does it make more sense for her to get married there and then file for a marriage visa or is the fiance visa better? I've read the K1 visa guide and have told her of everything she needs get for us to start the process already.

Any guidance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hey guys. I have sent all the required forms to the USCIS on May first through USPS to Chicago Lockbox but unfortunately when I was sending it, I didn't know that Chicago Lockbox had two addresses for the delivery depending on the courier of the Package. Usps had the PO BOX Address and the rest had another address, so I sent the documents through USPS but to the other delivery address. I will attach the addresses screenshot. What do you guys think. Any one had this experience before?128E393D-7437-48C3-9085-201B00D40F19.thumb.png.f07e74ffb2699251b5a20f78b95fc704.png

K1 visa process and dual passport

Hey guys, I need an advice. It has been more than 14 months since I had my K1 visa interview, I've been in administrative processing ever since, the main problem I have is the passport I applied with which was Somali passport. Somali immigrants got alot of scrutiny under Trump since it was part of the banned countries.I can apply for Ethiopian passport

I have medical licensing exam which I need to take in the US which allows me to apply for Tourist visa for that purpose, but I don't think I can apply the tourist visa with my passport if the K1 process doesn't end in time. So I have the option to apply for Ethiopian passport but I don't know how that will affect my application and overall even when I get it, if I can apply a visa with my other nationality while this process is ongoing. What do you guys think? Any input is highly appreciated.
