CR1 Interview scheduled

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

I am a US citizen and my wife scheduled for CR1 interview on February 2017. Here is our scenario and my concerns. I met my wife on November 2015 via Facebook. I went to my origin country and April to met her personally and based on our culture and tradition (I am Iranian-American) we got married. Because I am working for federal government and I am so busy, I had to return to US after 15 days. Also, I needed to apply for her. Since our first contact, we are in contact every single day and we also have a shared  account in Iran. Everything has gone through very well so far. 

My Concern is that can out short meet lead to denial? Also, my wife's family are so traditional in wedding process. Therefore, we have not had intercourse yet. (Tradition says we should start living together and then we can have intercourse). Actually her father is so picky about this. Could this be a problem ?

 

P.S. we have a very complete document package.

 

Would you please help me? I am so worried. I need to be relax.

 

Thank

Since you were together when the marriage occurred, you don't have to worry about the consummation part (that only applies in proxy weddings.) But I wouldn't bring it up in interview.  Having only 1 short meeting is a red flag, but if you've spent a lot of time communicating that can help over come it.  Is it possible you can be in the country for the interview?  Women rarely go into AP but it does happen.

NikLRThanks for your reply. I might be able to go to the country (Ankara, turkey) for interview. However, the reason we just met 1 time is because it cost a lot of money for me to go back and forth as well as since I am an employee I do not have so many off days and I cannot take leaves. I suppose they should consider the situation. Am I correct?

 

Thanks

Me and my husband only met twice, the second time was 2 weeks before the wedding itself. During my interview I was asked whether the first meeting was the only time we've seen each other. It might be a red flag having met once and get married at this time also, do practice your wife answering the reason behind that decision. The CO is quite intimidating and I believe they are train to see if you are fabricating lies so be truthful in answering whether its job or money reasons.

 

I hope to hear good news from you soon!

@Ervie and Rob thank you very much for your response. Does red flag mean reject completely? Or they give more opportunities? 

Our immediate marriage was because of a tradition in some Iranian families. And since I did not have off days as well as financial matters, we could not meet after marriage

 

Thank you
