What is the procedure for verifying the salary requirement, a letter from the employer?

Yes...that is all that is required, an official (looking) letter.

Then you would be aiding and abetting a crime of causing a fellow man to be a subservient victim.
You could cause his name to be replaced by the common barang name of ATM and condemn him to be a provider extraordinaire for replacement bullocks and builder of fish farms.

I got married in Kampong Cham at my wife's family home..He Uncles were big in Pagoda...father had passed away.
it was a beautiful, simple ceremony that brought face to my wife..
I could care less about any other wedding...ritual.
I guess if I was young and wanted to take her back to USA it would be a different matter.
I think the monetary income is steep.
However, if you were trying to bring a bride back to USA you need to be able show you can support her.
Of course, the average Khmer would want the legal paperwork...she could then skip out on the dude after he got her over to his country..
I feel more married to my Khmer wife than my 2 previous legalized marriages from my younger days.
I was told by an expat from Australia that when he wanted milk he bought a liter...not the whole cow.
My wife is the best person I have ever known...
I am lucky to have met her...

Most Khmer women I know have no interest at all in leaving their families to live in the west I would imagine they would be very unhappy there
Pinay, different story.

If you’re legally married to a local (opposite sex) then they are entitled to your pension when you (inevitably) croak. If you’re not then she gets fuck all.

Unless you’re savvy enough to have set her up with a house/land, education etc then she’s back to square one, probably with a kid in tow, older and less employable.

I’ve seen it many times. Very sad.
