To Lie or not to Lie?

I have turned to all of you before and you have never let me down. So now I have another question for everyone on this site. To lie or not to lie? Well before you answer that question here is the situation.

My fiancee and I received the NOA2 last week and we are trying to get a head start on gathering all the paperwork for the next step. We were going through the forms on the downloads section of this site. In particular we were looking at the questions on the DS156 form. One of the questions deals with being deported from the US and illegally obtaining a visa (question #38).

The problem we have is that about 8 years ago her cousin attempted to drive her across the Mexico-Tijuana border. I say attempted because they were caught. She said that she does not remember everything that took place while she was held because she was really nervous. However she did say that the immigration officers were more interested in determining if the driver was a "coyote" or if this was his first offense. After a few hours they released her to tijuana and he was allowed to go into the US. No fine or charges were brought against either one of them.

Now this morning we find ourselfs reading the questions on the DS156 over and over and I am not 100% sure that her situation is covered by one of these questions. However i want to be on the safe side and I am thinking about including an explanation of the whole thing and this way they can determine if this situation applies to one of these questions or not. What do you think?

They didnt deny her K1 because of it..so it can't be that big a deal..HOWEVER, they may still have a record of it, so lying might lead to being found out, which would be SERIOUS big trouble.

So..be honest..if she wasnt arrested or banned I'd say she has nothing to fear..but lying might cause UNTOLD problems.

If you are woried, consult an immigration attorney and get his opinion..

This has got to be the most ridiculous question I've ever read anyone post here on VJ, especially when his future wife's visa/status is on the line.

There is being deported and being denied entry. Sounds like she was denied entry.

It's not even about lying.


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

First of all this situation happened to my ex girlfriend from durango. Do not lie to them! Iam sure there is some documentation of this incident. I admire you for going through the visa process and not passing her ilegally. and this was not a stupid question. Don't worry what others think,just do it the right way! :help: No algae

Thank you dmartmar for the positive feedback. I appreciate the fact that you took the time out to reply to the most ridiculous question you have ever read.

The bottom line is; if you want to be successful in getting your woman over here so you can marry and have her by your side legally, do not lie, much less to a federal agency.

Lying and getting caught would incriminate both you AND her.

:lol: I like your answer to dmartmar :lol: There is no such thing as a ridiculous question.........and I agree with rch99......it's not like she was deported but refused entry. But the best thing is to check this out and always tell the truth! Good luck.................{{{{HUGS}}}}

:angry:

Haruuumph! This is the type of attitude that keeps some people from posting their doubts... I know you mean well by answering but remember that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

I know... because I too was very shy to ask... and still am sometimes. Sometimes I think: Naaah, that's too dumb to ask on a Forum; and then I remember that's precisely what the Forum is there for.

:yes:
