Question on Alien Smuggling on DS-260

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, Everyone..I'm new here and need some advise..

My wife and I just got back from our lawyer's office. We are almost finished with filling out the DS-260 for my wife. She has her I-601a waiver approved and we will soon send in all our papers to the Visa center. In the middle of our discussion, the lawyer tells us that the question about alien smuggling comes up because of people coming across the border with family members, such as children. He told us that since my wife came across with her children, she runs the risk of not being able to return to the US and being denied right there at the consulate interview.. Suffice it to say, we are very upset as we were not told this before. Do they really ask you about this at the interview? I'm almost afraid of finishing this process. My wife says we have come this far and might as well finish and go through with the interview. Anyone out there experience anything about this in the interview?

Suggest before you do anything else, get DNA tests for the children to prove that mom is their bio mother. These tests are very inexpensive now. If you are not the bio father, get proof that the children's bio father(s) gave permission for the children to immigrate.

There should not be an issue with Smuggling, my understanding is that there is a pass where it involves your own children. Did she have the fathers approval?

Sounds like your Lawyer has limited knowledge in this area, best to consult with one who does.
