Background Checks

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was just reading another thread about somebody being held up because something came up on their background check. This is starting to worry me. My fiance was denied at a land crossing border last May. He was coming to see me but was bringing some personal items with him. They viewed it as he was trying to come into the United States and wouldn't be leaving. That was not his intention at all. Now I am wondering if this is going to cause a problem with the approval. He has since been to the US twice to visit me and hasn't had a problem.

What does everybody think? :help:

Maybe I was the person you read about????? I was concerned about my fiance because he was denied entry last year, but was reassured that he should be fine. He will be given a chance to explain at his interview-when we get there. I am under some sort of "administrative review" at the moment. It could have been form him being denied, or it could have been my name-who knows? I will probably never know.

I am sure everything will be fine with you. If he has been back since then, I am sure the interview will be fine. Have you filed for anything yet?

Others will reply ;)

good luck

OK, correct me if I am wrong.

But I thought that this part (NOA2) was just to check on the Petitioner, not the Beneficiary. The Benificiary gets looked at through the Visa center and then perhaps checked out again in the ben's country via consulate / embassy. I am not sure but this is what I thought.


10Yr GC arrived 07/02/09 - Naturalization is next

The drama begins - again!

And now the drama ends - they took the Green card . . .

I would say "not necessarily", if my fiance's name came up on a name check or something, they have to investigate it. I am not sure what is holding up our petition, I don't have a very common last name, neither does my man but who knows???????????????????????????

they do whatever they want-there is NO logic!

Others have been denied crossing into US and gotten their visas fine. There may be questions at the interview like others said, but I don't think this will be something damning on a background check. He obviously didn't enter illegaly so he didn't do anything wrong.
