Can somebody please help?
I got married on Feb 2019 at a church in India. I couldn't register my marriage at the registrar's office because my husband and I had to return to our work place. My husband and I can't go back to India this year to obtain the marriage certificate due to unavailability of leave from work. (We both have to be physically present to obtain it)
Do you know if notarized affidavits from parents and priest who solemnized the wedding would work instead of marriage certificate.. ? We have the church marriage certificate.
We can travel to India hopefully end of this year or early next year to get it. But we have already submitted I-130 petition with affidavits, and our wedding pics.
Our previous K-1 visa was denied at embassy level BECAUSE we conducted our wedding at church in India due to a family emergency while K-1 visa was still under process.
