Will they check my family out?

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: England

I was wondering if my family history or the fact I used to live in the states will hold up my case?

My dad used to work for AMEX and so we all moved out as a family when I was 15. We lived there (i was a dependant on my dads visa) for 2 years aprox. I even have a USA social security no.

My brother ended up staying and meeting his wife, he applied for a Fiance Visa but as his wife was pregnant , so he got married and then pleaded his case, they decided he was ok to stay. My Brother now lives in CA with his wife and 6 (yes 6!) children He has lived there for 16 years and is now a us citizen.

Now, to complicat matters, my Mum and Dad also live in CA. They both stayed there illegally, and sought legal perminent recedency through a lawyer, they are now fully legal and have been living in CA for about 3 years.

Now, will this effect my case or is it viewed on a personal basis and I wont be held responsible for my naughty family? Or will they be suspect?

I have been in and out of the US 5 or 6 times, twice with my Fiance and always legal. And I will actually be living in Dublin OH so a 6 hour flight away from my family, so not the reason for me going out there. Its pure coincidence.

Opinions or advice please!

Thanks Claire

I wouldn´t think that will influence your approval, but it´s advisable that you are honest when filling out the forms, if asked about information on your family, which they do, asking who´s living in US from your family, and asking your parent´s current address.
