RFE is a request for evidence. They need more papers.

Intent to deny is intent to DENY. Which means they intend to deny you/ not allow you to proceed and your petition is denyed.

Need some more information on the notice you got to really say what is doing on. What does the notice say and where are you in the proceess of your filling?

Agreed, was it an intent to deny or a request for evidence (as in they need more papers or you left something blank)? What was the exact wording on the letter you got?

We got an RFE and it was not a big deal to correct. It slowed our case up a bit but other than that it wasn't an issue

Good luck

The intent to deny is because I have 2 misdemeanor marijuana possesion charges and one federal cultivation charge. I am just scared that the petition will be denied. What are my chances. All of this happened over six years ago and my life is very different now.

Sorry to hear about your intent to deny. Maybe you can try a different tactic? ... CR-1 / IR-1 Visa?

How about getting married in Ukraine and then applying for: http://www.visajourney.com/content/i130guide1

Maybe some other members with more knowledge than I have (this will include almost everyone :lol: ) can let you know if this option is a good one or even an option at all.

IF the reason for intent to deny IS his previous criminal convictions, then getting married will NOT be the remedy. BUT he WILL be married. DO NOT run off and get married before finding this out. The best course is to wait for the official letter which will state the official reason for denial, THEN remedy the reason for denial. It may be a waiver letter, it may be getting married (if the prohibition applies to K visas but not CR visas) etc.

The IMBRA is about disclosure - not denial. Having three drug related offenses does not make you ineligible to submit a petition. However, the act requires full disclosure to your fiancee about your criminal history. This means you must submit certified copies of all court and police records related to your charges and the disposition of those charges. The consulate is required to submit those documents to your fiancee - under the IMBRA, she has a right to know everything about those criminal cases before she applies for a visa.

Did you answer "yes" to part C, question 2 on the I-129F? Did you submit all of the court and police records they require?

I had a visa prep service help me I said yes that I had three or more drug related offenses but I didn't know I had to submit court records.

That's why you received a NOID.

This is from the I-129F instructions:

If you have ever been convicted of any of the following crimes' date=' submit certified copies of all court and police records showing the charges and dispositions for every such conviction. This is required even if your records were sealed or otherwise cleared or if anyone,including a judge, law enforcement officer, or attorney, told you that you no longer have a record.[/color']

The last thing on earth you want to do is apply for a K-1 visa if you have any kind of record. Forget the K-1, get married and apply for a CR1/IR1 visa and get on with your life.

I have brought that up with her multiple times she is not very interested in a quicky wedding to satisfy visa requirements she doesn't understand why we would have problems with visa and I explain it to her and she responds that I need to be positive and not negative even though I am working off good advice from attorney's and other people who have been thru visa process. I have told her about my past I have no secrets from Lina but she asks questions and is surprised by my answers because her life has been very different but I really love her and want to spend my life with her.

My wife and I were going to do a K-1 visa figuring it was an easy way to go until I did some research on it. I have a record just short of Al Capone including three felony's (stupid stuff when I was young and dumb),...none of them for weirdo ####### like sex offenses or anything but I do have two questionable DV's on there, and after further research on it (thank god for google), and checking into the questions on the I129F form....lol...no way was I going to even try to go that route. I talked to the wife...then fiancee at the time and explained what the deal was. She knows my record seeing how everything in Alaska is on the net. My wife is a realist and not into "if's and/or maybe's". The CR-1 was a "no brainer" in our case. We did everything on our own like we had planned...which included another trip to Belarus, nice wedding, etc...and our visa process was as smooth as butter. Not only that, but seeing how we went the CR-1 route, she got her Soc. Sec. Card a few days after she arrived, her drivers license, joint bank account, a visa card for her, her green card, etc...

K-1 and K-3 visa's are set to fail if the USC has any kind of blemish on his/her record. It's a bs thing immigration is pulling with that #######, but I guess it's their way of power tripping on US citizens.

Please disregard this bogus advice. Yes, following the CR1 process will avoid the need to disclose criminal records but this petition was not denied because of a criminal record. It's being denied because the court records were not submitted with the petition. A new petition can be filed with the appropriate court records.

When you get the NOID, you'll see it's the failure to provide the records that caused the denial, not the fact that the records exist. They MAY allow you to appeal by sending the records without paying a new filing fee but I wouldn't count on it.

Try marrying in Ukraine, USC to foreigner, particularly without going there again. I-129F petitions are routinely approved and K1 visas issued when IMBRA is properly complied with. Then, there's the matter of the additional trip abroad to actually marry. I sometimes advise that but not when the only problem is a failure to provide needed documentation.
