Q: K1 home situation

Hi, I have some doubts on the address that I need to put on the ds 160. My fiancee is currently living in a room and is looking for a 1bedroom apartment for us. I wanted to know what does the interview officier need to know? Would I be able to live with her in the room or should she immediatly get a home ready before I do my interview

A: As long as your immigration case is credible you have nothing to worry about, issues may arise when parties began fabricating things for immigration purposes.

A: Just be truthful! The current address is what is needed. It is understood that she would want to rent an apartment before or by the time that you arrive.

If you have any other concerns, insecurities, or future confusion with the law, I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any complications.

A: Hi -

Truthfulness in immigration is key.

If at the time you submit the 'DS-160: Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application' your fiancé is still living in the same address you refer to above, then that address would suffice.

Every case is different and there may be a lot of other important details to consider in your case, so I would strongly recommend speaking to an immigration attorney who has dealt with these types of matters.

Best of luck!

A: I don’t think any question on the DS 160 or even at the interview request information about the size of an apartment that your fiancé has in the United States. All that is required is for you to list the address where you intend to reside upon entering the country.
