  1. Thank you for your replies. I am asking for my daughter, the dual citizen. They are not actually married yet, so I'm helping them figure out what is the best route to go to get her fiancé (the Canadian) to the US to live after they are married. They are planning an August, 2021 wedding, so we'll need to figure out when the best time for my daughter to get domicile in the US and then when to start the visa process for her husband.
  2. What visa would a person that is a U.S. citizen, not living in the U.S., apply for to get their Canadian spouse to the U.S.? They both live in Canada, the U.S. citizen works in the U.S. and crosses border every day from Canada to U.S.
  3. I used to be a member of Visajourney back in 2004 when I went through the K-1 and K-2 visa processes for myself and my daughter. My daughter is now a U.S. citizen. I want to ask a question on behalf of my daughter. Here are the facts: 1. She is a dual (Canada/US) citizen. 2. Her spouse is a Canadian citizen. 3. They live in Canada. 4. She works in the U.S. (she commutes across the border every day with her Nexus pass). 5. They want to move to the U.S., he wants to become a PR and they want to buy a house (because house prices are ridiculous in Canada). Given that she is a US citizen and has employment in the US (but lives in Canada), are they eligible for the DCF? Would they go through the Vancouver consulate? Any comments or advice would be appreciated.
