Applying for a K1 after F1 denial, will the embassy think I only wanted F1 to get married?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My boyfriend and I are starting the K1 visa process but are worried about whether my past F1 denials will cause the embassy to believe that I only wanted the F1 to get married.

 

I was an Au Pair in my boyfriend's city, so I have spent a considerate amount of time with him whilst there. After my time as an Au Pair I applied for F1 (via change of status) at a school in the same city and was approved. I then left the US for Christmas and had to reapply for the F1 at the embassy in the UK and was denied last month. We have since decided to get married so that I can be over there with him. I know that previous F1 denials generally don't affect the K1 process, but we are wondering if they could deny our K1 petition assuming I only wanted the F1 to get married (this is not true I have a 4.0 transcript and was working very hard).

 

I also do plan to study over there my original course of study eventually once we are situated, as I do not have a degree from the UK

.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks for any advice! :)

Previous visa applications and denials are not an issue unless the reason for denial is something that makes you generally inadmissible or you lied on any previous application or during an interview.

Agree with JFH. It should be a non issue provided you have no other ineligibilities. Just prior change of status or visa refusals shouldn’t be an issue here.
