I-129f Part 3 Line 2

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

I am completely new to this and just starting from scratch. I have recently met an absolutely wonderful lady from Russia. I was just starting to fill in the I-129F form when I came across this "Three or more convictions for crimes relating to a controlled substance or alcohol not arising from a single act." Can anyone give me any feedback on this. In my younger and wilder days I did have 3 Drunk Driving convictions the most current was 19 years ago and the first was 26 years ago. I spent no time in jail, but is this a concern? Everything else looks straight forward, and I have held a very good job job for the last 20 years with absolutely no problems. I know this whole process takes alot of time, and I wonder if this will create any problems :help:

I'm not quite sure why this was moved to the IMBRA thread. I'm not speaking from experience (or expertise), but I don't think this will be a cause for denial. You may be asked to file a waiver (can someone more familiar chime in?). Just be sure to answer questions honestly and thoroughly.

Because he's the USC and he has convictions, so the only concern for him is IMBRA-related (not, say, a potential I-601 if it were the foreigner who had the conviction.)

OP: The point of IMBRA is to ensure that the foreign partner is aware of the USCs criminal history, if any, so the foreign partner can make an informed decision and knows his or her options. From what we've seen since it's been implemented, IMBRA-related convictions are not a reason to deny the petition or the visa.

Beyond that, read through the threads here, and the guides generally, for guidance. Lots of people have had to deal with IMBRA. Be honest and follow the instructions. :)

Thanks for the help Jesse and Caladan, I have been researching this some, and I think I understand what the IMBRA is about. My lady is aware of all that's happened, it's ancient history, and a lesson in life. I am wondering, I am going to Russia in February (must be true love!) Would it be advisable to get my Copies of my court decisions, and then while I'm in Russia get our signatures notorized on them. Also should I get some sort of waiver letter from my fiance and get that notorized while I am there? On those lines, if anyone has suggestions on all the data I should acquire while I am in Russia, I would appreciate the help.

Thanks, and sorry for the messup on the replies, like I said I am brand new here, and I will learn.

You don't need to do anything in Russia with regard to IMBRA. Just follow the instructions on the I-129F when the time comes. You'll need the court records to submit with the petition.
