k1 visa IMPORTANT question (please tell me your opinion)

Recommended Posts

Hello Everybody,

i start feeling kind of nervous about something came up in my mind about my fiance..

here it is..

during our 4 year relationship ( and she is my fiance now) she tried to get tourist visa to come and see me 3 times.(3 years in a row)

she got denied on all attempts.

at that time i had green card and we just wanted to see eachother.. no plan about getting married and stay etc....

She lived in USA from june of 2009 to april 2011. she was a tourist first 5 months than she changed her visa and got a student visa and went to language school. she never passed her time on her visa and with her decision she left usa and moved back to her country.(without any overstaying)

2011 december she applied for tourist visa (to travel and see me ) she got denied because she didnt have sufficient evidence that she will return...etc...

2012 she applied again for a tourist visa (because of her friends wedding party) and she got denied with the same reason.

2013 she applied again to come to miami on the ART BASEL week and see me.. but here is what makes me feel nervous. = in the visa application she put her self mutually together with someone (her friend from school in russia) she put his adress and what he does and stuff.. (like living together)

she got denied again for same reason..

now i am United states citizen and i applied for her to come.. with k1.

so now i am very nervous about in her k1 interview in moscow if this last situation about her being mutually together with someone comes up, what to do ??? say the truth ??? her and my intention was never make her stay here illegally. only trip to see eachother in each circumstance

we never lied to anybody about immigration purporses and i dont want this situation to screw our relationship and this process...

what do you guys think she should do??

do you think if i go to interview with her would it make difference????

what do you guys recommend?

Thank you

The best course of action is to always tell the truth to immigration officials. You don't necessarily have to preemptively give them information, but if asked, telling the truth is the way to go.

Going to her interview WRT this other guy's info on the B1 application won't change anything. Nothing will. I hope that you can see that fibbing on applications won't do anything to help you and can hurt you in the long run, so as Pitaya said, just tell them what happened if they ask you about it. If you want to bring her here, file the K1 or better yet, get married in Russia and file the I-130 spousal visa. Either way speak the truth and things should work out.

adjudication rules are different, B1 versus K-1.

I suggest you study them a bit more, in 9 FAM, and try to understand more.

The purpose of the K-1 is to travel to the US and get married and LIVE in the US. The purpose of the tourist visa is to travel to the US and VISIT. Being denied for the tourist visa will have no impact on the K-1. My wife was denied a tourist visa and it was not even brought up in the interview for the K-1--we did mention it on the form for visa denials.

DO NOT LIE. That will get you more trouble then it is worth. Why would they claim application fraud? She applied for a tourist visa and was denied a few times. Each for the same reason--they thought she want to go and stay in the US. Now that is exactly what she is doing.

Tell the truth all the time is the best way. No point in lying on the form as if the truth comes out it will leave you both screwed... or your moving to Russia.

As long as you have all the evidence that is required for the K1 visa then in reality there shouldn't be any problems. You can't help who you fall in love with and your country is aware of this hence the whole reason for these kind of visas.

Exactly. So why try to hide it? She wanted to come to the US before and was denied because she was a single young woman from Russia. Very hard to get a tourist visa. Now she is in love with a USC and the two of you want to get married and have her move to the US. The way I stated it is how the IO MAY look at it, but as long as you fullfill the requirements of the K-1 visa all those tourist visa denials do not mean anything. It just means they thought she might stay in the US illegally before, but now she is going to come and stayin the US legally. I do not see a problem with your case as long as you just put all your cards on the table and see what happens.

Good luck,

Dave

My wife (girlfriend at the time) tried to get a tourist visa two times and was denied both times. When it came time for her K1 interview they did ask her about her previous tourist visa applications, and she simply told the truth that she had applied, but was denied. Her K1 was approved, and the rest was history.

If you can swing it, I would accompany her at the interview (Moscow allows this). This can certainly help to show your relationship is real, but if you can't, just tell her to speak the truth to whatever questions come up, and be prepared with plenty of information showing your relationship and meetings.

Good Luck!

They will already know that your fiance was denied the previous tourist visas. Do you thing they don't keep a record? Denied b-2 visa will have abosolutely no impact on the k-1. ALWAYS tell the truth!!!

I don't think so, it won't hurt you .The best course of action will be not to hide any thing because they already read about her immigration history. and to be on safe side try to visit her before her interview. you will be all right.

All the best and Finger cross.
