F2A- Interview questions help

Filed: Other Country: Pakistan


I filed I-130 for my son back in 2004 and he just recieved the interview letter. I am a greencard holder and I am currently living in Pakistan for past year and a half with permission ( travel document filed I-131). This is my second and the last time that I applied for it. I had to get the permission so I could live with my minor son till he gets the visa to go with me. Now my question is that if they ask him during the interview about my residency, should he tell them the truth that I am living in Pakistan with permission or should he say I live in the US but visit frequently to Pakistan to be with them and currently in Pakistan to take him along to the US??

Thanks in advance

Truth. Always the truth.

They have these things called computers, that can search your history. They know more then you think they do...

My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

WARNING: Phrases in this post may sound meaner than they were intended to be. Read the Adjudicator's Field Manual from USCIS

Strongly agree with Bobby..DO NOT LIE.....tell them the truth......Leave the rest on God....

About 15 or so years ago my grand ma applied for my uncle, she left usa, came back to pak before his interview .During interview they asked my uncle about her residency ,he lied and hence didnt get the visa .They told him to get a photo of my grandmama next to empire state building holding a certain date new york post newspaper as a proof that she is still in US.This was like 15-18 years ago.Every thing is much more computerized now.So just tell them the truth.

Best of Luck

My son had the interview at the US embassy in Islamabad on 7 JUL 2009 and they gave him a "pink slip" and it states "Your case has been temporarily refused for further admin processing. We do not have definite date when the processing will be completed, but minimum time is approx. 6weeks. There is no max time limit. When the case is approved, we will call you to request your passport........"

When my son asked about it after the interview, the counselor mentioned something about the FEE processsing?? I paid the $400 visa processing fee a couple of months ago. Is there anything else I needed to pay? because I haven't recieved any letter or invoice requiring me to pay anything. So I am just waiting for them to contact.

Anyone here knows what exactly is that administrative processing delay? Anyone else experienced the same?

Thank you

It appears your son as been placed in AP. Try posting in this forum for more advice.

Waivers (I-601 and I-212) and Administrative Processes (221g)

Why is it that the only one who can stop the crying is the one who started it in the first place?
