Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. Please feel free to ignore any phone service request, the expert does not send those unless asked by customer and they are sent by the site automatically.

Just because you went to "see her for two months" that is not meaning you resided there for 30 days. Residency means you established a place to live, intending to remain there, not visiting. So in order to claim the visit was 30 days or more of residence, you have to show that you actually set up a place to live there not just temporarily stayed there.

my question was does the fact that she lives there satisfy the residency requirement of one party residency.
Does one party have to b resident to marry foriegner ...or both

Thank you for your clarification.

Yes, as long as she was a resident there, then you satisfy the requirement as only one person needs to be resident.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
