CDN Newbie marrying an American

Recommended Posts

Thanks, Cnc. That's wonderful! 8 years and finally going to live in the same country. Soon, no more border crossings. Can't wait!

Ms325i - FYI - I asked the immigration office in the US if by having a lawyer will expedite the process and they said unfortunatley, no. I agree with the Fiance visa program as it is too complicated. I think we are also going to wait to receive the certificate to then be sponsored.


Good luck to you and your fiance.

As I am Canadian marrying an American living in separate countries- anyone else in the same vote?

What are your plans for the legalities regarding the civil ceremony? I learnt that in the DR, we will receive the marriage certificate 6 months after?! Anyone have any suggestions?

I'm not in the same boat exactly, but definitely a similar one. I am American marrying a Mexican...because of immigration nightmares, we are actually doing just a religious ceremony in Mexico, then returning to the US and just doing a small legal ceremony before our AHR. Just an idea for you to ponder...i guess it really matters where you are going to live once married because it can take almost 9 months for immigration to change your residency, during which you cant work in the states!

Having a attorney won't necessarily get you your perm residence faster but we hope by using an experienced immigration attorney it will facilitate the process in terms of gathering the correct information, completion of forms etc, etc..I found a downtown firm called Niren & Associates that specializes in Canada to US immigration.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
