Left after K-1 w/out AP - Now to file CR-1

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This is really a "good to see you all again" post from me. Here's the deal:

June 3rd 2011: Fiance came to the US on a K-1 Visa

July 2nd 2011: Married

September 7th 2011: Husband left the country without filing AOS, so no AP. (96 days after arrival)

Now, I know we need to file for CR-1 for him to come back. What potential problems could we face? I know that the K-1 is valid for 90 days. Will he be considered an overstay since there was no AOS? Will that trigger a ban? What else may come up?

Thank you!

There is no ban since it was less then 180 days, but I would definitely prepare a good reason, on why he left and AOS was never filed, as this would need to be explained in the interview.



"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths." (Proverbs 3, 5-6)
