My own story is that I have applied to the US embassy four times for non immigrant visa, the last time was about five years ago. What are my chances because I have been denied for four good times for non-immigration visa and now that my wife want to petition for me what are my chances ? And more so my names have changed from the former papers I used to apply for my non-immigrant visa with different date of birth, good enough my new passport carry my authentic names and date of birth.

Well she should do it now, no reason to wait. Now that you are married you should not have any issues getting your visa. Unless you new birth date messes things up. How can your date of birth change? Did you use false information earlier then you guys might wanna hire a lawyer?!

How is it possible that you used an incorrect birth date and name for four visa applications? Something's not right here. If they realize that you lied (or are lying) to immigration, you'll get a lifetime ban. In other words, yes, it could be a huge problem. Clarification, please?

The day and month of my birth are the same on my both passports but the new one carry the authentic year which is 1969 but I had 1968 on my former passport, the mistake came from the passport office then. But I have the original birth certificate that is from the government that tally with my new passport details.

When you applied for the other previous visas, did you put your correct birth year on the applications?

How is it not your fault? You should have gotten the problem fixed as soon as you realized it was the wrong year. The fact that you knowingly used the wrong birth date on several visa applications could definitely go against you. There was a Moroccan applicant a few months ago who lied about about a previous marriage on a tourist visa application, and was given a life ban at his CR-1 interview because the embassy found out about it. Lying in any way to immigration results in serious consequences, especially if it happened more than once.

That was five years ago and I have had two passports after that incident

What difference does that make? We're talking about what you told the US, not what you told your home country.

That doesn't erase it from the embassy's system! I'm not really sure what to advise you to do. I guess all that you really can do is apply and hope for the best, because there's no waiver you can apply for that would turn around a ban for lying to immigration authorities. I would definitely look into getting a lawyer, though.

May be we should not start the petition, at all or what do you suggest? I am not desperate to relocate, more so we are looking at sometimes in January, 2015 to file the petition because I will still be busy with school till the end of November, 2014, so we are thinking January,2015 to file the petition.

This isn't a problem that is just going to expire. Whether you file tomorrow, or in five years, you're still going to have to deal with the fact that you lied to immigration multiple times. Whenever you plan on filing the petition, look into getting a lawyer.
