Good Evening,

I am a tad confused about whether I did something wrong or not in this case. In January 2008 was a F-1 student at the end of my OPT after my undergrad when I decided to propose to my girlfriend at the time. At this point I had already applied for grad school and returned to my country for a few months while waiting for the admission letters (note that my primary intent of return was indeed going to grad school). I was granted a F-1 visa and returned to the States in August, subsequently married in October. I finished my Masters quite successfully and then started the adjustment of status process when I started my Masters' OPT recently(as a grad student stipend is not quite enough to pay for the fees). Did I do something wrong by not filing for a K-1 first? Does this mean I entered with intent to marry under another visa? I really did intend and wanted to go to grad school and I did not marry immediately because we wanted to know if we could actually live together and deal with graduate school at the same time.

My interview is on July 5.

It shouldn't be a problem unless you lied about your relationship when applying for the visa. You seem to have answered your own questions about intent. Good luck.
