I130 question D2 help please

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys, my wife (american) and i are filling the i130, but we have a problem....

She got married when she was 20 to a boyfriend from costa rica (they were boyfriends, the guy actually "used" her to become legal, and since she was in love she agreed), so we need to answer YES to the i130 question that asks if she ever file this petition before, BUT she has no idea where the petition was filed and the date, a lawyer did it, she only knows her marriage date, just that, and she doesnt have contact with this guy anymore...

if she writes, YES, and the name of the guy and the year (1999), will they reject it?

Also, is it a big red flag she already did this process even though it was 14 years ago? im very scared and worried, we met by chance when i was on vacations here some months ago

it is not a big red flag nor is it the basis for rejection.. it was over a decade ago afterall

do not lie on the petition.. material misrepresentation is the big red flag

she must do whatever she needs to do in order to provide the correct answers.. if she can not find the case number or such and it is asking for it, you will have to write a separate letter explaining the facts and see if it comes back as an rfe

Are you still in the country and adjusting status at the same time as you are filing the I-130?

Just have her give her best estimate on the dates and such. If she knows the month and year, she can put that. If she does not know something, she can put Unknown.

u have nothing to worry about, my wife was married 10yrs ago also. make sure u put the name of the ex husband and get a copy of the final divorce decree paperwork. if u cannot remember the date she filed for her ex husband just put the year, that's exactly what i did, infact we guessed the month also and i never had any RFE for it.
