I have been hovering the board and have to say fantastic info here...

I have not seen anything similar to my question and hope that you may be able to help or direct me, My position may seem complicated, but will keep it simple and to the facts...

I am UKC and fiance is USC we want to get married but know we need to apply for the K1 and know we need understanding of the following.

My parents immigrated to canada in 1965 and 4 years later to the usa and I wouldve been 4...by the time I was 13 my parents need to return home and requested assistance from the british conulate general in L.A weeks later it was agreed the consul would assist our return to England and they had green cards taken away and escorted to the airport in 1977. I am currently pursueing any documentation from the office as we speak.

2 months of being in England i was accused of greivious bodily harm to a boy slightly younger than me and it eventually went to court with a conviction, but suspended probationary period, but had frequent visits from a probation officer for a few months afterwards.... I have requested a poice check PNC to see what shows up, but will be honest on the application when the time comes but still feel the need to track down the court files on this if i can to prove my prudence in all aspects of the application and how serious I am of being honest

in the late 1980s wanted to go on holiday to USA and asked the embassy if the assisted removal would affect me and they said no so went and filled in the card on the plane checking no to each question.

few years later went again, but applied for a multiple entry visa as i was going to the behamas and returning to the US after a 2 day cruise and it was approved.

Since then have been many many times and unkowing the meaning of moral turpitude, sumising it was not related to me....I know no exscuse for ignorence, but was my honest assumption and was not aware of applicability to my childhood.

I have been to see my fiance 3 times alone this year and fear that all previous visits are now ileagal entries and may go against me.

Out of intrest do cases of moral turpitude get looked at and still approved for the K1?

any advice greatly appreciated

Well after a few days research I am glad to say that on the official USICS website is this excerpt which although I was 13 my conviction seems to be 1 of the 2 exceptions to the rule as seen from thier site and I have been answering the I-94W correctly all along, but would like others opinion of how it reads so I am not seeing things....lol

Two exceptions to this ground of exclusion appear in INA 212(a)(2)(A)(ii):

1. The ground does not apply where the alien has committed only one crime of moral turpitude, the crime was committed when the alien was under 18 years of age and the crime was committed (and the alien was released from confinement to prison or a correctional institution imposed for the crime) more than five years before the date of application for a visa or other documentation and the date of application for admission to the United States.

2. The ground does not apply where the alien has committed only one crime of moral turpitude, the maximum penalty possible for the crime for which the alien was convicted or to which the alien admits having committed or of which acts the alien admits having committed which constitute the essential elements of the crime did not exceed one year of imprisonment and, if the alien was convicted of the crime, the alien was not sentenced to imprisonment for a term greater than six months, regardless of the extent to which the sentence was ultimately satisfied.

So have me a great big smile on my face yet again!!!
