Overstay in another country

Hi everyone

I'm getting ready to start the K-1 process in a month or so and was wondering if you thought this situation would be a red-flag. I've been with my boyfriend for over a year, while we've both been living in London. I'm in the process of moving back to the states, where I will file. My boyfriend went back to Brazil a few weeks ago, but the whole time we were together in London, he was overstaying (he came in on a regular tourist visa - which Brazilians can get at the POE in Europe - and overstayed a total of about 3 years). This will be fairly obvious to anyone who looks at his passport (i.e. tourist visa stamp, then nothing for 3.5 years).

He's never been to the USA or applied for a visa or anything (and wasn't deported from the UK - just left on his own), so I don't think this will be a major issue, but has anyone else been in a similar situation? Do you think we should be prepared for this to be a problem?

Thanks a lot!

Janet

This probably wont be a problem for the K-1. But you can likely forget about visiting the UK as a couple for the foreseeable future....
