  1. Hello, I'm very upset because I just found out that my wife lost her German Citizenship. My story: I applied for my German wife for US Citizenship in May 2015 but I didn't know that we have to file "beibehaltung" in order for her to keep the German citizenship. She have all her family in Germany and she travels there twice a year. I feel very bad because I was the one who filed all the paper work for her and now I made her lose her German citizenship because I wasn't aware of the law. My wife's parents moved to Germany when she was 2 and she lived all her life in Germany (going to school there etc...). We even have 2 children one who was born in Germany and another was born in the states. All her family live in Germany including mother, father, sister, 3 brothers, 5 uncles, cousins etc... Do we stand any chance to get her back the German citizenship? What if she decided one day to go back and live to take care of her mother and father? What can we do to reverse the action? If she moved back to Germany will they treat her as a foreign? Thank you so much in advance for your feedback. Regards,
  2. Hello and thank you to anyone that takes the time to read my message. I got engaged to my long distance boyfriend not too long ago, and we're now looking more seriously into the process of getting him moved over here with the K-1 Fiance visa. My fiance and I have been collecting evidence over the past week, and began filling out the I-129f. One thing I haven't found a clear answer to is how to write my fiances name. He is German and has an umlaut in his last name (ö). Do I spell it out as "oe" everywhere and then under the beneficiary's name in native alphabet part spell it with the ö ? Or do I use the umlauted name everywhere?
  3. Hello everyone, my American husband and I are about to file our I-130 with the consulate in Frankfurt, Germany. We are now gathering all kinds of documents needed. I read somewhere (don't know where, as I read to many website about the visa topic!) that the consulate in Frankfurt accepts documents in English and German. This would be such a help to us, as many of our certificates, leases and statements are in German, and we would not need translations. Then I read somewhere else that we need to provide English translations of all documents. I have no definite answer. What is your experience on this? Anyone here who das filed German documents in Frankfurt? I wrote the consulate, but they haven't responded yet. Also, my general experience with them is they like to refer to their FAQ's or homepage is often does not answer our specific questions! Any help is much appreciated! Thanks everyone
  4. Hi there! I am a US citizen that is in the throes of love with a German tourist. We are now engaged and I am wondering what forms and other information he/we might need to stay and work with me in the States as he has now overstayed his tourist visa in trying to figure our plans together. When we get married, will he lose his German nationality? I have done a little reading on the i-130 and I-485, what other info might I need to make sure all bases are covered? Thanks in advance! -Elwyn
