Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.
Where are you going to marry this person? In the US or Ethopia?
Unfortunately it is the Ethiopian government which requires that document and it is only issued by the US Embassy.
No other authority can provide you that document.
You would have to get an exception from the Marriage Registrar for Ethiopia and that is not a US immigration law question. You need to contact a lawyer there in Addis.
You are welcome and I hope you can somehow get the US Citizen section to expedite your appointment.
