What should I say at the POE?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

The worry bug strikes again 3 days before I fly out to the US.

I'm just worried if they ask me at the POE something like "And you intend to reside at (insert address written in forms here)..yes?" And I would have to say no because Andy moved during the "grey area". I'm very anxious that if I tell them the truth...and hand over his new address they will not accept that because it's not whats stated in the mysterious envelope and turn me right back round to the UK. Could they do that? Do they think they'd ask about the address even? The new address would be on my luggage tags so if I just agreed yes it's right about the old address they'd tell I am lying by looking at my luggage tags. I'm climbing the walls.

Andy of course tells me they probably won't even ask anything about it. But if they do, I want to tell the truth but I don't want to be turned back to the UK just because he moved house after my visa was delivered.

Arg *pulls hair out*.

I can't wait for a big hug after all this...

Fiona


Love hurts

When you live an ocean away

When you change your sleep schedule to catch a few more moments

When you really need to be held and you have to imagine whilst your partner describes it

When you constantly refresh the USCIS website to see if you're getting any closer

Love Loves

When it repays you with the love of your life

When God finally answered your biggest prayer

When you can live life again in the real world but still have that eternal connection

When you wake up for to the beginning of the rest of your life with the person you fought so hard for

When you love somebody that much

You'll do anything

I wouldn't worry too much!

They didn't ask me anything like that at all at POE (LAX) and my bags had a hotel address on them as I was not staying with my fiance before we got married - no issues at all.

I think you'll be fine. I don't think they care so much where you're going to live as the fcat that you have to marry within 90 days.

have a safe journey and a wonderful reunion!

Fiona,

Don't worry! Andy is probably right that they won't even ask you. But if they do, you can simply explain that your fiance moved since the filing of the I-129F. People move all the time. They'll understand. :yes;

Have a safe trip! :D

I wouldn't worry if you do get asked anything anyway. Just always tell the truth. I got asked 2 questions -- what is his DOB (I got it completely wrong), and what year did you meet (I got that wrong too). The reason I got them wrong was because I was completely sozzled after quaffing champagne on the journey. :whistle: I told them I was a little knackered (obviously trolleyed) and they waved me through to secondary. Good luck :thumbs:

Hi Fiona

I wasn't asked any questions at all.

The immigration officer just advised me that if John turned out to be a bad guy, I didn't have to marry him and should just make sure I left the States before 90 days were up! :lol:

Have a great trip and a wonderful reunion - very excited for you!

Fiona,

So what address do you plan to write on your I-94? Your I-485?

Change is a part of life. Supply current information each time you are required to provide information.
