    1. After marriage, your residency rules can be applied to her as well. She can attend your consulate. For example, a couple that gets married belonging to North and South India could attend the visa appointment together in one consulate than one attending in Delhi and another in Chennai irrespective of their prior residence.
    2. Yes, All information in the application would be as if you are married and can be taken well in advance. The VFS application autopopulates the date as of the date application was filled. You can correct the date and have her sign it or update the application and print it later.

    I am not a lawyer and you need to consult with one to validate any info posted on the forum and discuss your case specifics. H1b Question? Read the FAQ first.

        Nothing special other than reporting your experience after the fact for the benefit of other forum users that may be in similar situation.

        Also, mention the correct past addresses if a DS157 has to be filled out.
