Good day house. I had my interview yesterday (Lagos) all went well except that the consular gave me a paper to provide 2 more documents. 

1, prove that I was never married to the woman that I had a child with before I married my wife (American)

2, the death certificate of the child since the child is now deceased (which I just optained today) the child recently passed which explains why she was initially on it. 

My question is this what documents do I need to get to prove my first question??? 

I’m urgently waiting. Thank you

Sorry to hear of the loss of your child. My deepest condolences.

 

Now why do they think you married your child's mother? Did you have a traditional wedding? Does mother have your last name and it's on child's birth certificate?

 

Hard to prove you aren't married when you weren't.

I don't see how you can PROVE you were not married, other than testifying that you were not married....Can you post a picture of the document you received?

did u apply for a tourist Visa before u married your American wife and filled married to the mother of your child

that is a good question someone from the same country came in asking this same question because someone told him if he marked married on the DS-160 for visit visa he would get approved faster.

now if he did this he has more problems than trying to prove he was not married at all.

 

the other person wanted to fake a divorce decree to cover himself instead of coming clean.

Sorry about the deceased. Just request for an affidavit from the mother of the child stating she was never married to you & her current status with her fiancé of husband. It will do! You can also ask her family to do one extra one for you. All the best!

Yes someone adviced me to do this 11 years ago that I would get approved faster  while in the reality, I was not married to the woman. The CO asked me if I had a traditional wedding with the woman and I told her NO that I was ill advised about it in the first place.

you will have to go and get the affidavit of singleness before u married your USA wife, then u might need a misrepresentation waiver

THIS was a huge mistake.  It is not now a matter of proving you were never married.  Now you've got a possible inadmissibility for material misrepresentation on your hands.

Yup...that's potentially a very big issue.

 

You can't provide a divorce certificate for a marriage that never occurred, so you will need to show that you were never married.

But How does one prove they never married? An affidavit of singleness can be evidence towards that, but does not prove it. One could have married elsewhere. One could have married without registering the marriage.

 

Edit:

As an example, I'll look at the Philippines. There are many, many Flipinos who married but can obtain a Certificate of No marriage (CENOMAR) still, since they never registered the marriage in PI. The existence of a CENOMAR does not mean they didn't marry.

It's potentially both. Proving you were never married is only the first hurdle, but it's also the much taller one IMO (based on others who have claimed a marriage on a visa application in the past). A misrep bar is easier to overcome in many cases.

It's kind of the old saying, "You can't prove a negative."  In some cases, you actually CAN, but I have no clue how to do so in THIS case.  Lies have consequences, some of which are delayed.  Good luck to you.  This is not a do it yourself kind of thing.  Get a qualified, highly recommended, immigration lawyer's help.

 

There are SOME cultures that simply ignore lies, if the liar has even a tiny "reason" for lying.  US Immigration is NOT one of those "cultures".

I agree the Misrep waiver is just time and money, first you need to address the FRE. Not the first time I have seen this but nobody ever came back.
