CR1 after failed K1

We applied for the K1 first. After a terrible interview experience, our case was sent back to USCIS.

I withdrew that petition and we married in October. Now we are almost finished at NVC (expect CC any day this week) and are preparing for the interview.

This time, I will be with my husband.

Just wondering... will the CO bring up anything about the old K1?

The big thing they used against us was our age difference (I am 14 years older than he is). I had also only met him once. Now I have made 2 long visits and will be at the interview.

Trying to get everything in order and wanted to know what others had experienced in this situation.

THANKS!

The Consular Officer will ask any question he or she deems appropriate at the time. I would be prepared to give a straight answer including details of visits.

Hi Ally,

I don't know if the CO will bring anything up with the K1, but be prepared is all I can say.

As far as the age difference, there is a big age gap between myself and my husband, but I was there for his interview in Egypt, and nothing was said to him or to me about our ages.

I think it helped me being there, it gives them the chance to see how we really interact with each other.

Either that or maybe my husband looks old and I look young?devil.gif That is how I like to think!laughing.gif

Good luck with the pending case complete and interview!!!

Thanks for the replies!

We will be ready for whatever they throw at us and I plan to take a mountain of evidence.

Frome the last 2 trips (one was almost 2 months lomg), we have almost 3000 pics. I put some of our faves into a small scrapbook and I am taking the index prints from all the CDs. I also have all our phone bills, chat logs, cards, letters, and records of all the texts we send (some days we send 100 back and forth!).

I don't care what they ask because this is a real relationship (we talk at least 2 hours EVERY day) and we will answer anything. I just wondered how this situation with the withdrawn K1 is usually handled.

Thanks again!

Your best bet is to overcome the reason for previous denial.

For example, if your K-1 was denied for lack of pictures or too few trips, then you need to overload on that or elaborate on that information.
