Denied: K1 today in Montreal. But....

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

So...I just got the call from my fiance who just had his interview this morning in Montreal. He said the interview went well, but because of a 7 year old minor criminal record, we have to file a waiver with it. We sort of knew this going into it but its still kind of sad to think about waiting longer. one thing: I didnt know that we could have had the waiver ready to file and could have brought it to the interview. DOH!

Other than that, the interview was a success, everything else within the paperwork was approved (financials, evidence of relationship, medical, etc.). I was worried about it because we needed to get a co-sponsor and also have been apart a long time waiting for this process. The interviewer was very kind and hopeful. He told my fiance that he was pretty sure that the waiver would be approved and to file it right away! He said it takes 3-12 months but that the 3 months was more likely.

I guess the only thing I can say to those waiting for the interview is, the interview is nothing to be nervous about. From what my fiance said, it was relaxed and had he not had a record, the interview would have been nice and easy.

So while sad, we are still hopeful. :)

Good luck to you all
