Hello, me and my american boyfriend have been together for few years now. I had to leave US because my student visa ended. Now we are trying to get me a k1 visa so that I can go back to US and marry him (This is the visa where I am required to marry him within 90 days of entering US). The I-129 form instructions say that one of the things we have to submit is the official statements from both parties. I would like to know what is a good statement. What I have so far is
To immigration officer,
I [my name] from [address], is writing this statement to request a visa to enter US to be married to [my boyfriends name] of [address]...
Then I plan to go on and describe shortly how/where we met and how he visited my parents (as per my tradition) to ask for their daughters hand and how we planned to be married as soon as possible.
Is this a good statement? and is the beginning too formal. Please provide me some assistance and also give me tips and clues.
