Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.Your wife would need to send a letter of invitation to her Aunt inviting her to the family reunion you have scheduled for this summer. The more details about where it is, who will be coming and how long it has been since the family has been together, the better the invitation letter.Here is a sample outline of a letter you can use to guide you. or your wife may also want to provide an Affidavit of Support form I0134 that will guarantee to the US government you will be totally responsible for her expenses here and that she will not use our welfare benefits. is the link to the US Embassy website that instructs how to apply for the visa. Your wife's aunt will file form DS-160 online, make payment of $160 as instructed and then schedule her interview.She will bring the Affidavit of Support and invitation letter with her to the interview.If she works she should also bring an employment letter and if she owns her home she should bring proof of ownership. This evidence also helps establish she will go back to DR after the visit.I am sure you understand your positive rating is very important to me as we are not on salary and that is how we receive compensation, you choosing a smiley face or 3+ starsIn the future, you may begin your questions with “FOR JUDITH” and I will beyour personal immigration expert.Judith
