With US Citizen Son

My fiance and I are just about to file a K-1 visa, and I'm really excited about this because the distance is driving us crazy and we both want to start our lives together without ever having to be apart. I'm the nonUS citizen but I have a son who is a US citizen. I gave birth to him 9 years ago in the states.

Will this be a problem for me when they interview me? Will they ask about things beyond our relationship?

Yes they ask questions beyond just relationship things. They ask about work, about the state you will move to, about what your plants are. They will probably ask about your son and your previous relationship.

They asked me about my husbands Xwife and if I knew her or had ever met her. All kinds of things.

Yes, any and all previous relationships are fair game, be prepared to answer all questions honestly.

Good luck

As long as you were in the U.S. legally and broke no laws, there should be no problem. As the last poster said, bring a copy of his birth certificate (a certified one from the municipality that issues them).

Everything is fair game to ask, as the CO has the right to ascertain that you broke no laws before he issues the visa, so he can ask whatever he wants.

What was your legally status 9 years ago when you gave birth to your son, and did you accept an means benefits towards your son's birth. If the answer to these questions are that you were legally in the states, and you did not accept any means benefits toward the birth of your son, then you should have minimum problems with the questions surrounding your son being born in the US.

I was in the US on my tourist visa. I didn't and never had plans to overstay since I never really had intentions to live there at all at the time. Anyway, thanks for your reply! :)

I really hope they don't give me a hard time about this...that was such a long time ago!

Congratulations on your engagement! If you came to the US legally and exited before your visa expired, then I would not expect the birth of your son in the US to be a problem. I would advise you, however, to check the regional forums and seek specific advice from members with beneficiaries from the Phillipines since they could give you more consulate-specific information. Best wishes! (F)

If you didn't over-stay your visa, why do you think the US would give you a hard time, that you felt the need to ask questions about it. What is your real concern? Most visa stays are only for 6 months max, and a pregnancy generally last nine months, unless it is a premature birth. Just thinking out loud.

oh i wasn't there the whole time i was pregnant, and i stayed for less than 4 months. anyway, it's just that from what i know, they don't like it when noncitizens give birth there. and that it's going to be a point against me when they interview me.
