  1. visa

    So wait. First you apply for a tourist visa and want to be a tourist? That fails so you apply for a student visa for pre-nursing? Then you say they denied that so perhaps you should apply for a student visa with a engineering program. Sounds like visa shopping to me. Don't think you're gonna have any luck.
  2. Is this your girlfriend or wife?
  3. It would be very helpful if you filled out a timeline. Without information it is difficult to answer your question.
  4. You hit that one on the head!
  5. You are so wrong. They would be supporting her by feeding, housing, clothing her. Supporting and payinf a salary are the same thing. A US citizen would not have the job because this "tourist" would be taking the job. There's no such thing as a free lunch.
  6. It's not cheaper. Your water bill, electric bill and food bill would increase more than it would cost you to have daycare. You don't need a nanny. Look into home daycare. Your sister cannot work if on a tourist visa as she would be displacing a US citizen from work. And yes, even if you don't "pay" her she is working which is forbidden.
  7. 1.) Perhaps she was hesitant to state in the beginning that she was going to visit her boyfriend/fiance...you? Then when she fessed up they felt she was lying by omitting the fact that she was going to see her boyfriend/fiance. Ommision is just another word for lying. 2.) Apparently it was not obvious to them. I would suggest you visit her in her country a few times and then get married there. Then file for a CR-1. This is what I would do. Good luck and God Bless
  8. This is pure visa fraud. She has to go home. The sooner the better because the longer she stays the longer her ban will be.
  9. My wife, a Filipina never had a birth certificate until I met her. She was 19 years old. She had to go to Surigao (from Cebu City) 3 times to finally get her birth registered and her birth certificate. About a month after getting her birth certificate we were married in the Philippines. A month after that we filed for her CR-1. At the embassy interview in Manila they asked why she never had a birth certificate until just a few months ago (I think they called it late registration) and she replied that she comes from a poor family and they just never had the funds to go back and forth to Mindanao. This was the truth and the CO was satisfied with that answer. F.Y.I: These CO's are highly trained to read body language and they are pretty sharp at observing someone that is not being truthful. Always remember, honesty if the best policy. Never lie to a CO. I am not accusing you of lying but I am reassuring you that as long as you tell the truth you should be fine. I don't think you will need a DNA test as long as you and the father are listed as the parents on the birth certificate. Good luck and God Bless the three of you. David
  10. Good luck and God Bless the three of you
  11. I will share our story with you. I met my now-wife online on a dating website on July 28, 2012. I first visited her in the Philippines September 15, 2012. On September 18, 2012 I proposed. On September 22, 2012 we were married in the Philippines. On July 20, 2013 she arrived in the USA! Talk about a whirlwind romance! She was 19 and I was 54. She was beautiful (still is), me not so great...hahaha. Once we got the marriage certificate we filed for a CR-1. Between our first meeting and her interview at Manila Embassy I visited her another three times. So talk about a lot of RED FLAGS. (I believe that getting married was a safer bet for us due to the red flags. I also believe that being at my wife's interview at the Manila Embassy helped. It certainly didn't hurt. Interestingly enough, the CO asked me more questions than she did my wife.) We overcame all the red flags because we had a genuine love and relationship. I knew the day I first met her in person that she was the one. I know many people here are warning you but you should know once you meet your fiance in person...hopefully. If you are not sure after meeting him there are many more fish in the sea. Just be very careful. BTW: We just had a beautiful baby girl and we named her Heavenly Joy. Many people told us that our relationship would not last but it has. We are more in love today than we were yesterday. There are many people who warn about someone just wanting a green card. That does happen for sure but you should be able to tell if your relationship is genuine. I wish you all the best. Good luck and God Bless.
  12. Too bad it cost a lot of money but lying will always catch up with you. No the cost of your paperwork does not concern them or anyone else in the least. A visa is not a right, it is a privilege.
  13. Please complete your timeline.
  14. I have seen NMA used. NMA = No Middle Name. But if I were to do that I would include a separate piece of 8.5 x 11" paper with a note referencing the part in the form where you used NMA. I have actually seen the government use the NMA designation. But add the note.
  15. The answer to your question is in your question. You were arrested. You MUST check yes in the box.
