B2 rejected after meet my fiancé can affect my k-1

Hi everyone,

Today I have many questions. As I said in another publication, we are preparing to send the I-129F.

In October I apply for a B-2 tourist visa. Obviously I was rejected.  The reason was that I did not show links with my country, I could go with the ESTA because I am from Spain. The reason why I tried to get the B-2 was because I wanted to have more than 3 months, around 5 months that I put in the DS-160. I was an Au Pair. My boyfriend is the father of the children. We were dating for 13 months. When I applied for B-2 I was still married. He got his divorce a month ago. In the b-2 I said that I wanted to travel and visit. I told him I wanted to visit the family (which included my boyfriend and his children) and travel with my friends. I did not say he was my boyfriend.But I said that I would stay at his house and also put him as a contact in the USA. UU The problem? I did not say the word boyfriend, for a reason, he was still married. I did not say I'm in a relationship . Could I do that and affect k-1? I'm very worried about that. 

 

Honestly, I did not know the impact of that, when I applied I did not read the difficulty of getting the b-2 especially when I can travel with the ESTA. Could you think I did not tell the truth? I said I want to visit him, but I did not say the word boyfriend. I told the family and their contact and address. We have evidence that we were in a relationship since December 2017.

Hola a todos,

Hoy tengo muchas preguntas. Como dije en otra publicación, nos estamos preparando para enviar el I-129F.

En octubre solicito la visa de turista B-2. Obviamente fui rechazado. La razón era que no mostraba vínculos con mi país, podía ir con el ESTA porque soy de España. La razón por la que traté de obtener el B-2 fue porque quería tener más de 3 meses, alrededor de 5 meses que puse en el DS-160. Yo era Au Pair. Mi novio es el papá de los niños. Estuvimos saliendo desde hace 13 meses. Cuando solicité el B-2 Todavía estaba casado. Obtuvo su divorcio hace un mes. En la b-2 dije que quería viajar y visitar. Le dije que quería visitar a la familia (que incluía a mi novio y sus hijos) y viajar con mis amigos. No dije que era mi novio. Pero dije que me quedaría en su casa y también lo puse como contacto en EE. UU. ¿El problema? No dije la palabra novio, por una razón, él todavía estaba casado. No dije que estoy en una relación ¿Podría hacer eso afectar y k-1? Estoy muy preocupado por eso. 

 

Honestamente, no sabía el impacto de eso, cuando apliqué no leí la dificultad de obtener el b-2 especialmente cuando puedo viajar con el ESTA. ¿Podrían pensar que no dije la verdad? Dije que quiero visitarlo, pero no dije la palabra novio. Le dije a la familia y su contacto y dirección. Tenemos evidencias de que estábamos en una relación desde diciembre de 2017.

If B-2 visa is denied cause you didn't show enough ties to return to your country that shouldn't affect your K1 application. If they asked you specifically if you had a bf in the US (or if you were dating anyone here) and you said no then that's lying and that could cause a problem. But if that's not the case you were honest and you have nothing to worry about.

They didn't ask if i was dating noone in the interview. They asked me about my job (i didn't have one) and about my intentions. In the DS-160 form i don't remember if they ask if you have a boyfriend.

If your intentions weren't to marry him but only to visit and then return to your home country then you were honest and it shouldn't affect your K1 application.

As long as you answered everything truthfully your b2 refusal will have no impact

That is grounds for rejecting your B2.  That rejection, in itself, should not have a negative impact on a K-1.

I think i was truthfully. The problem was i didn't say he was my boyfriend, but i said i want to visit his family and i will be in his home. I didn't want to marry him, he was married yet. Also he proposed 3 weeks ago when we went to Toronto to meet each other.

You will be fine. You were honest. It will not hurt your chances at getting a K1.

 

However, the B2 denial may affect your future ESTA abilities.

An ineligiblility for one visa does not mean you are ineligible for other more appropriate visas

The Immigration process requires a great deal of knowledge, planning, time, patience, and money.......good luck.

Other thing, I remember. In the part usa contact I put my fiance, they ask who he is a soad friend because it was another option. I could put others, but others what that means. 

So, I said: "I want to visit the family I was living with as an Au Pair. They invite me. Also I want to travel with some friends. Which is true I have friends there. But in the interview they didn't ask me about boyfriends. They ask me about my profesion and why I want to go with another visa. Also they asked where I will live I said with the family. He is the family. The address didn't change.

Again, if your intention wasn't to go to get married on the B2 visa to adjust status afterwards it won't affect your K1. You're overthinking it
