NEED ADVICE! Huge mistake i130 + DS260

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

October 18 is our scan date.

My husband and I were reviewing all the forms and other documents we sent by postal mail to NVC.

My brother who happened to be on my side at that time noticed why we did not included my son on my DS260 and on i130 (under "C. Information about your relative No.17").

I said, we have no plans to petition him since his fiance who is in abroad (not in USA) has their future plans.

My brother explained to us whether we intend to petition him or not, we should included him on the forms.

 

We would like to correct these mistakes we did.

I am really very worried and couldn't sleep well. :(

1.) What is the best way we should do? 

2.) How are we going to correct this?

3.) How bad is our case?

 

We would greatly appreciate your opinions and help.

Thank you in advance.

We know this is really a stupid mistake. :(

We should carefully fill out the forms.

I couldn't find here the same case we are having now.

 

Please... anyone out here could give us some shed of light?

Thank you in advance.

I'm not a lawyer but before my docs were sent, my lawyer made sure to have all my docs and info included correctly and completely because if NVC finds something missing the case goes back to the end of the line when there is a request to send additional info or documents. I would fill out this form https://secureforms.travel.state.gov/ask-nvc.php and send your question to them and request advice , at this point not much to loose but if the mistake you made is really cardinal, you can send corrected docs already instead of waiting up to 12 weeks now to get he notification from them.

Good luck!

Do it correctly on the DS260, then if asked about it during the interview, just indicate you misunderstood.  In the future, read carefully, interpret literally and answer accurately.  You were not asked if your offspring was immigrating with you.  You were asked to list your children and specific information about them.  You'll be asked again.  Answer correctly.

It was really a very terrible mistake. We got confused on that part. We learned our lesson.

We know there'll be an impact on processing time of our case because of that error. It really broke my heart because our case is on review already. Scan date is Oct 18.

 

You said "Do it correctly on the DS260" means I'll request NVC to unlock my online IV application and edit that part about having a children?

How about the i130 my husband mistakenly not included my son on the form? NVC will not cross reference every entries we filled up?

I'm sorry.  I didn't realize you had already made the mistake on the DS260 as well.  Just tell the Consular Officer about the mistake.

You can explain at interview that you both misunderstood the question and yes you have a child.

Base on your experiences, I would like to know after telling the mistake on my DS-260 to the Consular Officer, what do you think will happen?

they will make a note of it. It would be a bigger deal if you never mentioned it and tried to petition the child later.

Thank you for replying @NikLR

  •  I would like to know if my error is a minor or major one?
  •  Do you think this will lead to a delay on my visa issuance?

I'm sorry but this really makes me restless.

It's a fairly signifigant mistake to make but understandable.  It would be worse to not mention it at interview.

@NikLR thanks for your reply. I really hope the consular officer will understand my explanation and will be give consideration.

i really have no clue how the error will be corrected on the interview once i inform the CO.
