Hello, my name is***** & I will be the immigration attorney helping you today. I'm reviewing your question and will be with you in a few minutes.

Ask Your Own Immigration Law Question

You can select that you are paying for your wife's visa, not your employer. She cannot apply until you are legally married. If she lives in India, yes she can attend the interview in India.

1. If it doesn't ask for education, then you don't need to include education. You only need to include education if she is not working and is currently studying.

2. You don't attach the scanned copy of your passport to the DS-160.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you.

2. With out marriage i cannot fill out DS160 form and schedule inverview appointment ?

1. She can request to have the interview in India based on the fact that you are Indian and you married in India. It's possible they may allow her.

2. No you cannot fill out DS160 until after you are married.

I hope this clarifies for you and that you can kindly issue a positive rating.
