    DS 260 Question-Immigration Law Violations (Seeking Clarity/Assistance on how to respond)

    Under the Immigration Violation section, the question summarized asked if you ever sought to obtain a visa by fraud or misrepresentation...yes or no with space for explanation. This is the situation-Beneficiary was removed from USA at entry from airport, during interview it was discussed about his security. Visa application was completed by employer, visa approved at interview and no questions were asked about his background. However, from the airport denial this resulted in a 5 yr ban and visa revoked. Beneficiary was not charged with misrepresentation however it was stated he was inadmissible due to inconsistent statements and not enough funds. 235(b)1.....212a (7)(A)(i)(I)

    Transcript discusses this issue-Employer completed visa. Consular office in JA did not ask about background. Beneficiary incorrectly assumed that background questions were related to Cayman Island (where he lived) and not JA. Final determination did not include being charged with misrep at determination of inadmissibility/removal proceedings at airport.

    Should this question be answered with Yes and brief explanation as provided here or any other thoughts

    Thank you.

    I post this July 5 2019 here

    Fast forward. My Oath Ceremony Notice was received and one of the questions on the back page reads since your interview, have you been arrested, cited, charged, indicted, convicted, fined, or imprisoned for breaking or violating any law or ordinance, including traffic violation? Yes or No

    I was rushing to a bus station at about 5.30am after an uber cancelled on me. i decided to drive my truck to the station, parked it in front of the station and ran into the station to catch the only bus(that was already pulling away to go) that will get me to my son's doctors appointment in another city. I then called a friend to go pickup the truck before the parking authority staffs will start work at 8am. My friend didn't get there by 8am and a violation ticket for not paying was already issued.

    Please i want constructive advice on how to handle this cos its making me panic. How should i go about this since the ceremony is days away?

    K-1 chart log, tickets translation

    Hello everyone!

    Please, advise - do such evidence documents as chart logs, train tickets, etc. need to be translated by a certified translator or it would be enough if I ( the beneficiary ) or my fiance translate it yourself and put such a certification to certify a translation:



    Actually, I have done already the translation of our chart log (we selected some parts from each month) and now we are thinking how better to certify it. The document is pretty long, about 40 pages (I have 2 columns table: 1-st column translation and 2-d column original text).

    We both are fluent in English, but our native language is Ukrainian. That is why we communicated in Ukrainian.

    I have read different topics on this subject on VJ and also the USCIS official page, but still don't have a clear answer in my mind. Someone told it was OK to do it yourself, someone that it may cause problems. What is your experience with that?

    Also, if we would decide for hiring a translator to have it reviewed and certified by them - is it OK for USCIS if a translation agency would be not american, but foreign (ukrainian)? It is much cheaper here. Or they prefer to have translations certified by american translation agencies?

    Much thanks for sharing your experience on this subject!

    • Wedding celebration on K1 Visa in a foreign country before filing for legal marriage in the US
      My fiancee and I are currently going through the K-1 process. I was advised that NVC just sent my paperwork to Vietnam on June 23, 2018. I already booked a trip to Vietnam for my our engagement party on July 11 before our interview inquiry. Our marriage celebration will be on October. We will be filing the marriage license in the U.S. if her interview goes well.
      Our concern is that what if my fiancee fails the interview and the i-129f was completely thrown out AFTER our marriage celebration? We plan to file for cr1 if that happens but would it look bad for our case because we had a marriage celebration while still going through the k-1 process or would it not be a problem as long as we don't file the marriage license until my fiancee is in the US?
      When filing the i-129f, we signed the promise that my fiancee and I would get married within 90 days upon arriving in the US.

    • US Visa Interview with a 221G Administrative Processing Result
      A VJ'er recounts their US visa interview, "The officer who interviewed us asked several questions which I answered truthfully. He didn't ask for any documentation, he only asked only for pictures. In my heart I felt we were about to be approved... then he proceeded to write 221G on a paper that he had on his desk... completely heart broken."
