    Top 10 Mistakes at Visa Interviews
    Top 10 Mistakes at Visa Interviews:

    The Visa interview is the most important part of the whole visa process. A successful interview has a positive impact on your visa being granted. Following are some of the most common mistakes people make during their interview.

    1. Not Prepared Well for the Interview

    Being prepared for interview can better equip you for the interview. Prepare beforehand for commonly asked questions and their appropriate answer will be helpful prior to the interview.

    2. Not Providing Complete and Truthful Information

    It is very important that you provide complete and truthful information. Any incomplete/false information can lead to unnecessary delay(s). False information can have severe impact on your future ability to apply for US visa. It may also cause you lot of frustration and legal actions against you. You could be band for life from receiving a US visa. THINK before answering.
    K1-VISA Income/Household & Joint Sponsor Question
    Hi there, I am Max, in the UK. I am getting on top of FORM i-134 and have a few queries....

    1. The household will be my FIANCEE'S parents - who live there with her. So the FULL TIME occupation is THREE (3) - HOWEVER , she has 3 children (9-11-14) who are there 3 days a week. What is the correct way of stating the household occupancy? - I believe she is NOT the MAIN CAREGIVER.
    2. If a JOINT SPONSOR is required - where on the form i-134 do you add this information - so it is taken into account? Just use the SPARE PAGES at the back?
    3. FINALLY - Question 38 (I DO/DO NOT Intend to make specific contributions etc...) - I am not sure what to put here - as I will be working (intend to in IT) and want to take nothing from her. I expect to find work fairly swiftly.

    Please help!! K1 Visa expiration question
    My (now) wife is here on a K1 visa. She arrived in the US in July. Her 90 days ends October 2nd. We got married last Thursday. We are waiting for the marriage certificate now. Does our paperwork need to be sent out by the end of the 90 days, or do we just need to be married before the 90 days are up?
    thank you!

    A newbie to Family sponsor application ! Thanks for your help !

    Dear everyone,

    I am a newbie to this topic and searching information to bring my family overseas to the USA. I started to research now. Hopefully, I can start a new application in 2020.

    My mom (born in 1964) and my brother (born in 1992). He got married to a girl (born in 1992) and they have a daughter (born in 2018) . It is form I-130 only to sponsor for both my mom and my brother 's family ?

    I guess it will take 2 years to bring my mom here. For my brother 's family, it might be 13 years ? By that time, he probably has 2 children already.

    One more thing, they will require financial proof which is tax of 2017, 2018, 2019? If my husband and I divorced in 2019, will they look at my income separately or with him as well because we filed tax together in 2017, 2018.

    Thanks so much.

    Hi all,

    so I sent in forms I130, I485, I131, ead application AND I130A.

    I got notices of receipt for all of those forms except for form I 130 a , since my husband received a receipt for the I 130 does that mean it includes the I 130 a as well or should I be receiving a separate notice addressed to me for the I 130A form?

    thank you

    Hi guys! Helping a friend here. I d like to ask K1 Visa applicants from Russia who are divorced.

    Does the divorce decree need to be translated to English.

    If yes, where did you have it translated? Is there a certified translator that needs to sign it? Where do we find it?

    Thanks in advance for the help.
