Preparing for interview and I have some technical questions

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello people,

I filed for spouse based immigration back in Jan, 2017. My interview is now scheduled. I am ready for the interview but there are some technical questions about which I might not have any reasonable answers so I seek your advise here.

 

I went to UK in 2008 on student visa and just before my visa ended, I left for Spain in 2011 with my friend and made an illegal entry. I lived there for 5 years, filed for work-based immigration which was later refused. According to the letter, I could either file for a new case or leave the country voluntarily. I left the country and came back to Pakistan where I got married. (arranged marriage in relatives) My spouse is green card holder, we have a daughter of 1.5 years with US nationality and she is pregnant again.

 

Now they could ask me about my entry and stay in Spain that why did I go there, was I aware of my illegal entry etc etc, I dont know if they will even ask about it.

 

I need your suggestions and guide about it please.

Thanks.

Uscis or consulate focus more on criminal history, your immigration status in another country has nothing to do with them. Just make sure the country in which your visa interview is scheduled should be a country in which you LEGALLY reside.

If asked you need to answer truthfully , but you don't have to volunteer any information.

@mniceguy16, @Ann&James,

Thanks a lot for the information guys. My interview is over. It was successful. They didnt ask me much questions, just

 

  1. When our marriage took place? (the date)
  2. How long did she stay after marriage. (my wife stayed for 3 months, so she asked if all the ceremonies had been done, and I said Yes)
  3. How many times did she visit and when was the last visit.

Then they looked at the pictures I brought, it covered the whole duration of our marriage until now, ceremony pics, then different visits pics, with our child as well.

Then they asked for the other documents, for tax papers of the sponsor, they looked only at W2s and said that everything was complete.

They kept my passport and said that I will get it back in 2 weeks.
