Is a mention of being Drunk a big deal

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,


So I have my interview coming up in a few weeks and I was going through everything I have submitted. I came across something which has got me a little worried. So when we submitted our I-130 we wrote a little story about how we met, and in the story there was mention about how on of our date and how we got drunk. Never thought much about it at the time or since.


Anyway I know drinking is not legal or a disqualification, but alcohol abuse is. I am not someone who struggles with alcoholism, however I do drink socially and I have been drunk. I don't have any citation for drunken disorderly or drinking and driving.


When I was reading over the story we wrote about us, I was a little worried that  we mention of my wife and I getting drunk on a date and was worried if it would raise any flags and delay our process.


Maybe I am paranoid, but it does worry me a little now. Is this something I should worry about in our up coming interview?


Thank you!

In retrospect I do recognize that it was probably something not worth mentioning about. But I am a little worried it now, and worried that I have opened myself up to further scrutiny.

As long as you didnt DUI, molest your spouse or were drunk during the wedding vows I dont think you have to worry. Being drunk, even being an alcoholic, is not against the law. DUI is, so is molesting your spouse. And apparently getting married while drunk can make your marriage void cause it can be seen as being in an altered state of mind. Other than that? Cheers!

It's not like being drunk or drinking is illegal provided you are of age.   It was over sharing but a zero issue.
