Frontloading

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've learned from VJ that frontloading (and lots of praying :) would be wise to do if your loved one is in Nigeria. Could you please tell me how much info you recommend sending when filing for the K-1? I'm in the process of getting things ready now.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Research red flags, If you have anything that might be one cover it well. Are you older than him, are you white, have either of you been married before, have you only had one visit. The basic principle is that the embassy can only deny you for some fact they uncover during their interview that wasn't in the approved petition. Your petition should weigh in at well over 2 pounds when you send it. Make sure to include pictures with his family.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Thank you for advice it's TRULY APPRECIATED. I'm 2 years younger than him and I'm black. Neither one of us has been married before.Right now I just have one visit but will be visiting again by the time of his interview or during the time of the interview. I've printed out things as I go so I have copies of all our IM's, emails, phone records and envelopes from things he's sent me. Lots of pics with family!

yes definitely if u can make more trips that would be good. I understand it is expensive but if u can get there more... I have been more than 5 times myself...

The age thing should be ok in my opinion even if u are a little older i think like 3 or 4 yrs is ok but if the women is more than like 5yrs older than the man that usually sends a red flag...but u are good since u are younger than him

Out of curiosity, if there were any red flags (or what the CO perceives to be red flags)would that be grounds for an automatic denial? Or does that just subject you to more scrutiny?

The more red flags the more they probe during the interview. They can come up with any reason they want to deny if it wasn't previously disclosed. Our first time I didn't mention what I did for work and hadn't discussed it a lot with Joseph as I am not supposed to , there were other red flags for us. The second time after clearing what I could say through my security department, I basically explained what I do in general terms and stated that if denied I would be forced to move there and would find it unpleasant to try to transfer my "job skills" to another country. The second interview they asked again and Joseph correctly told them that they needed to fill out a request to access information and have it approved. That I was outside with the paper work if they wished to proceed, They declined. Anyway reveal anything that they may pick on you about.
