    pushbrk got a reaction from TBoneTX in CR1 VISA PROOF OF MARRIAGE   
    You will have passport stamps showing you were in his country, photos together and with family, examples of how and how frequently you have been communicating, and receipts.  You can print examples of how and how frequently you communicate.  Note that words mean things.  You are not asked for "proof of marriage" beyond the marriage certificate.  What you a talking about is "evidence of bona fide marriage RELATIONSHIP"

    Mostly correct.  You can file whenever you like, but IF you file before being together in person, your petition will be denied.

    Forget about the K3.  That the lawyer even suggested it means they are far from up to date on the spouse visa process.  K3 visas haven't actually been a viable option since February 1, 2010, 11 years ago.
     
    You...CAN.... submit more evidence at the NVC stage, but the Consular Officer is not required to consider it.  They usually do though.
     
    Sounds to me like the lawyer was just wanting a big fee NOW, and bigger fee justification was the whole reason for the K3.  That's best case.  Worst case is the lawyer is totally inexperienced with family based immigration.
     
    Your husband CAN file as married filing jointly or more easily as married filing separately, but in  most cases must file by mail, rather than filing online.

    Murph's wife is still in her home country (Philippines). Their spousal visa process is still in progress.
     
    I agree with you that the tax returns need to be amended to "married". They will have to decide if it is better to amend as "married filing separately" or "married filing jointly". I understand that filing jointly is usually more financially advantageous.

    Huh?? Mumbo jumbo.

    Ummmmmmm.....60 years old is NOT considered "old age" or a "senior citizen" in the U.S. A different religion is not difficult to overcome.

    OP: I am 21 years older than my husband and we didn't have a single issue getting approved. Same as far as religion, he's Muslim, I'm Catholic. It's difficult to co-mingle finances before you move to the U.S and the consulate is well aware of that. Just make sure you have lots of evidence of a bonafide relationship-time spent together in real life. Evidence of time spent in person IE: boarding passes, pictures, hotel/air bb receipts ect...and joint U.S tax returns.

    Good luck

    There is the authoritative answer.  Do you know how you got registered?  If it was through a driver license application or renewal, get a copy of the form that is used.

    Ugg!  Where to start??  I guess I'll keep it short.  The above is MOSTLY over-reaction, in my opinion.  60 is old age in the USA?  Nonsense.  He can't even draw Social Security yet.  The current and last US Presidents are in their 70's.  Yes, you CAN do the things suggested, but that does NOT mean they are all necessary.

    My suggestion would be to provide a letter from you explaining the evolution of your relationship, just like you did here, but with some more about how the relationship developed and WHY...YOU...wanted to marry him.

    You may face some tough questions but the fact that your family approves now and is involved, will go a long way.
     
    Yes, your attorney should have provided evidence of relationship up front, but you can provide it at NVC too.  Your best evidence seems to have not existed until after you filed.

    I didn't say anything about rescheduling the interview.  I would NOT do that.  Deal with it the best you can.  If the form is an issue and you are interviewing in your state of residence, the officer probably already knows everything they need to know about the form.  Be honest.  Take it a step at a time.

    No.  If the only option you can think of is the DMV, go ahead and get the form.  Then you will know if there is a specific citizenship question.  If there isn't, show that in the interview, if asked.  Be sure to tell the truth.  You did not intend to register to vote and you haven't voted.  Right???

    USCIS “will not penalize an applicant who unknowingly or un-willfully registers to vote."   The question they will probably ask is if you were registered through the driver's license process by accident or unknowingly.  And hopefully you have never stated that you were a US citizen as this is a violation of the law. 
     
    USCIS will not consider an applicant for naturalization “to have unlawfully registered to vote if the applicant did not complete or sign the voter registration section… in the motor vehicle or other state benefit application.” However, it could be a different issue if the person did sign that portion of the renewal form dealing with registering to vote.
     
    USCIS would not consider an applicant “to have unlawfully claimed to be a U.S. citizen if the applicant did not affirmatively indicate that he or she is a U.S. citizen.” However, if the applicant did register to vote, the applicant would have to prove that the registration form did not contain a question about whether the applicant is a U.S. citizen, or that the applicant did not indicate, in response to that question, that he or she is a U.S. citizen.  Therefore, if the form asks if a person is a U.S. citizen, and they checked the “yes” box, they could have problems.
     
    If the person knowingly answered “yes” to a question asking whether he or she is a U.S. citizen in order to vote, they would be in violation of the law for having falsely claimed to be a U.S. citizen.

    pushbrk reacted to carmel34 in I-130 petition without income, or having lived in the US for many years   
    Read the I-864 and the I-864 instructions carefully.  It will tell you everything you need to know regarding how much US-based income and/or sufficient liquid assets you (or a joint sponsor) will need.  Here are the links:
     
    https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/document/forms/i-864.pdf
    https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/document/forms/i-864instr.pdf
     
    If you decide to proceed with the I-130 petitions for your family, you will have 6-12 months to wait for them to be adjudicated, so during that time you can figure out how to meet the financial requirements, on your own or with a joint sponsor, and prepare a plan to re-establish a US domicile.  The I-864s are filed after the petitions are approved, at the NVC stage, prior to the visa interviews being scheduled.  I strongly recommend that you become very familiar with the process and spend some time studying all the forms, requirements, costs, processing times, etc.  Visa Journey is a great place to ask questions, we are here to help you.  Good luck!

    Depends where you are in what process.
     
    If you actually intend to live together in his country, not the US (not presuming he's Italian; I met Anastasia in Italy once before we were married and she's Russian), then you'll need to look up the process for that country.
     
    If you haven't started any US immigration process yet, you're fine, but right now you are in a "too married for a K-1, not married enough for a CR-1" state if you weren't together in person when your online marriage happened.
     
    If you have already filed an I-129F (first step in the K-1 process), it will be denied as you're already married.
    If you have already filed an I-130 (first step in the CR-1/IR-1 process), it will be denied as you have not been together in person while married (regardless of anything you might have done before you were married).
     
    So presuming you do want to live together in the US and  haven't been together in person since the online marriage happened, your next step is to meet in person, and then you can begin the CR-1 process. If you've already filed a petition, you won't get your money back.
