How does it affect the K1 visa not having placed the name change in the past applications denied (B1 / B2)?(merged)

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is the context, in my previous (2) tourist visa applications that were denied the last year, I didn't register my old name change, because at that time I thought it was for "alias, maiden, religious or similar".

Now I started applying for k1 visa (not been sent yet), and in "names used" I registered my name change because I have to show the birth certificate and the name change appears on that certificate.

If so, how does it affect my k1 request?

How can I respond when they ask me about this?

Really, is it a big deal?

It was my mistake, because I didn't consider that "names used" was to register even name changes.

It should be noted that all my documents appear with the new name, including my passport and ID.

Thanks in advance!

You have to mention every name you ever had. So fill out your current name first and fill out every other name at the section 'other names used'

These are a bit silly but big mistakes, but this happened: I put my mother's maiden name on the two previous denied visas. What would happen if now in the format of the K1 place the last name of married?

 

I think that having both incongruous formats could cause me a problem, but I do not know. Could you help me? Thank you!

Yes @C90, I'm mentioning in my k1 visa. But the point is I didn't mention in my previous tourist visa denied. How does it affect my k1 proccess?

From what I read on this forum tourist visa denials seem to have no impact on K1 unless it was denied based on the fact that they caught you in a lie. I'm not sure if this would be considered lying, but I'm sure there are other people who are more experienced in this than me so lets see what others say

You can't change the past, the mistakes you made on the tourist visa applications are history, nothing you can do about that.  Just be sure to disclose ALL names used, current and previous, be completely honest and put all names on the K-1 forms, and hope for the best.  If it comes up in the K-1 process or interview, be honest and tell them what happened.  Good luck, hopefully you will be okay but no sense worrying about something you can't change from the past.

They may seem like different issues to you but in reality they are related. 

You have more then one visa application where you have submitted inaccurate information. This can be seen as lying on the forms to increase your odds to obtain a visa. The only good thing here is you did not get the visa so it may not bite you in the butt.
