Should we be worried

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hubby and i been together for almost 13years now...in 2009 we decided to get married and the big plan was that once i was finished with school i would move back to our country. I got pregnant and the we decided to staying in the USA would be the best for our growing family.

At the time when we filed the I130 I was a LPR so it was approved but said he was not eligible for AOS. He has a B1 visa and I am now a USC...he was coming and going since we got married and the last time he came the inspection officer was giving him a hard time about his coming and going.

Anyway he left the USA again and decided to stay out of the country until I got my citizenship which was about 6months. He came back in DEc 2011 and we applied for the AOS and we are going to the interview on April 12 2012

Do we have anything to worry about? We have all the evidence requested but I am just feeling a bit worried. Any advice or suggestion would be great

Did he intend to immigrate when he came in December? If so, you are potentially looking at visa fraud. What, if anything, was he asked at the border?

I am not sure what he was asked when he came...but once he got here i decided to do the AOS. had no clue about b1 visa having issues..after reading only usc can do aos i assume it did not matter the visa tpye. he has legal stay until june but was scheduled to go home on april 1st and our interview is on the 12th.

just wish i found all this information before starting this process...i just went from the basic stuff i got from uscis site and did it myself seeing i cant afford a lawyer

I dont even know what the right step should have been seeing that staying here was not the first plan

You will be fine, many things are overlooked for the spouse of a USC including intent and overstay.

Also even if he said he wasn't planning on immigrating to the Border Officer, is that not what AOS is for? Sometimes circumstances change...
