My fiancee wants to come visit me here in the US in October. We have not sent our K1 package yet, and probably wont until late October rolls around. He is from Chile and both him and I are very nervous about him coming back to attempt to visit me. He doesn't speak a whole lot of English and had a heck of a time trying to get back in the second time he came. Below its laid out the times he came to visit me.

He's visited me the following times, both times POE was Chicago.

1. Late July 2015 - Early Oct 2015 

    No issues at all, welcome to the US!


2. Late Nov 2015 - Mid Feb 2016
    Many, many, many issues, the officer accused him of working in the US. I think he was accused because he said he came with $100 and that his sister would be         sending him more and forgot that I had written him an invitation letter explaining that I would be financially responsible for him. 


I visited him in Chile...

Early Nov 2015 - Late Nov 2015

Mid Feb 2016 - Mid July 2016

Does anyone have any advice? Since he's been gone for over 6 months now do you think he'll have the same issues he had as last time getting in? What happens if they dont let him in? Does that count as "deportation" or just "denial of entry"? How might that have an effect on our k1 visa process?

arrowA-Number Lost from Previous Spouse

So I am trying to work on the I-129f for my fiance and I have been through this K1 process before with a previous spouse and in question 14a. it asks for the Alien Registration Number (A-Number) for my previous spouse. Well, lets just say I won an annulment for our marriage and in an enraged fit I burnt everything that was in my house that had to do with him, including every single one of our K1 & AOS paperwork. 

Do I have to find this number before I send the packet in? How can I find this number?

Thank you.

arrowSponsorship & Income

I make well above the required amount to sponsor my fiancee on my own, however, I am wondering if I have to work at that position for a certain amount of time? Or if they might scrutinize our application and my income/employment information if I have only worked there for a short time?

Heres the situation...
- February 2015 - November 2015: I worked at this company and then quit to go to Chile to be with my fiancee (we were going to marry there and things came up and we decided it would be better to marry in the USA, therefore k1 here we come!)

- July 2016: Here I am again back in the USA and working for the same company I did before

Should I have a co-sponsor (my mother and father, with whom I live with) fill out the cosponsor information just to be safe?

Thank you!

arrowTravel on CR-1 Visa

My wife has had the CR-1 visa for about a year now and we traveled to her home country of Chile. I had to come home early for a job interview and the plan was for my wife to only stay for a few extra weeks before coming home to Miami. However, there is Zika in Miami now and so we are scared to bring her home as she is pregnant. Hopefully I will get hired at the job I interviewed for and we will move to New York, but if that doesn't happen we may decide to have the baby in Chile. It seems like if your travel is under a year with a IR-1 visa then you are in the clear to come back to the US without a re-entry permit, but I'm having trouble finding if this time period is the same for a CR-1 visa. Lots of old posts seemed to say the requirement was under 6 months for a CR-1 which would be cutting it close for us, but I'm not sure if that information is updated. If we should apply for a returning resident visa (SB-1) is that something we should begin work on now, considering that the baby is due in November so we would plan on returning early December?

Thanks for your help.

arrowAffidavit of support payment and documents

People here:


We need some information now about the Affidavit of support payments and the requirements


We are living in Chile and my wife is going to be my sponsor (she's a USC). 


Reading about the requirements of payments of the visa process and the affidavit of support, it says that you need to pay all the fees with a US Bank account, Is that true? Or we can pay with our Chilean banks? (She does not have an US bank account, since she lives here) If we can pay here, we pay to the Embassy?


Secondly, We are saving money to meet the financial requirements, but our case is a little bit different since she's been living here in Chile her entire life, so she does not have an US salary or accounts there. We want to move there after the process (if we can). How much money do we need in savings to meet the requirements? That money is mandatory or is analysed case to case? 


That's all for now! Thank you guys
