Married in the DR as dual citizen, now what?
« on: November 27, 2017, 05:02:20 pm »
Hi guys,

I'm a frequent DR1 user and figured this site would be a good resource into helping me. Last week I just got married to my Dominican wife here in the DR. My question is, how do u proceed from here since I technically married as a Dominican Citizen (I'm American with dual nationality). Does this change anything that I need to do? Like any other type of forms, etc. I know Americans marrying Dominicans as us citizens need an affidavit of single status, but do I need to do anything with that at all? I'm planning to start the application process in 2018 and hopefully get everything done in one shot. Thanks.

Where are you living and how long have you been living there?  DCF (Direct Consular Filing) might be an option.. took me about 2 months when I did it 4 years ago..

If you've been there long enough, you can file the petition directly at the Embassy as Jenny429 pointed out. Single status affidavit is only for marriage purposes in DR. You're already married! No further need for anything except acquiring copies of your marriage certificate and other normal documents that are required to file your petition.

We're currently in the cotui area to be with my side and her side of the family for he holidays. I have a place in SD that I'll be moving out of by the end of the year because unfortunately I lost my us based remote job that I was doing from there)(said I couldn't work from here anymore, just excuses). Anyways, my main concern was basically since I married as a Dominican Citizen does that really matter to the US when I go to take my marriage certificate saying I married as Dominican? On my Dominican cédula it states I was born in the US but Dominican nationality. Also, what application should I apply for and which visa? My parents married here and my mother brought my dad, but they honestly have no clue anymore about the process. I've investigated as much as I can, but still confused. I want to fill all the correct forms and get it over with. Direct filing probably won't be an option for me since I'm probably heading back to the US in January if I don't find another US company willing to let me work from here. I have current residence in Michigan and will probably have to do everything from there.

Dominican Citizenship when you married is fine..


Do you have anyone who can help sponsor with the Affadavit of Support? If so I'd work hard to get the paperwork done now.. It may take 2-3 months at most.. Took me 2 months 4 years ago.

What line of work do you do?

As long as you are a USC, your fine. You can do DCF if you work fast. As long as you have done all your taxes and since you lost your US based job, you'd be better off to get a co-sponsor just in case for the affidavit of support. You'll be filing an I-130 for spouse, G325a and follow all the instructions. All documents are available on USCIS.gov.
