Lying in K1 application!

Posted (edited)

Okay so my fiancé and I have made a mistake and we admit it was bad of us to have lied but we just thought it was something we had to do.

we filed for the K1 visa in February and we stated that we met in July 2018 when actually and honestly, we met in November 2018. 

 

We thought our application might be denied because we filed too early and it might be seen as fake even though our relationship is one of the realest out there and we love each other. We are both Ghanaians but he was filed for by his dad and he relocated after high school. We met on Instagram.

 

I, the beneficiary is scared that even if USCIS don’t care about when we met as long as we have physically met once within two years, the local embassy in Ghana might see that we are lying and thus deny our application.

It is already too late to do anything and we deeply regret what we have done but you do anything for love right? We just want to be together and some of us actually know pretty quickly if someone is meant for us or not.

 

Would the consulate know we lied? Is there a way they will know we didn’t actually meet in July or they wouldn’t know and they would just go with the story we presented?

 

Please, let’s be humane with our responses. We know what we have done is wrong.

 

Warm Regards,

Yul&Dee

I answered these questions in my post already. 

We lied because we actually met and got engaged just three months when we decided to file. We met in November, filed in February.

We didn’t want anyone thinking it was too soon though it wasn’t too soon for us, we know we want to be together so we lied we met in July so it would seem like we met a long time ago

Considering your evidence is from November onwards, it's possible the truth will surface depending on how stringent the CO is.  What they do with that information if/when it surfaces is anybody's guess.  Lies always tend to unravel under pressure when in front of them.

 

Not sure why you thought it was something you "had to do"...but going forward, it's pertinent that information presented be accurate and truthful, considering you sign paperwork swearing to this.

 

Did you lie on the forms about anything else?

Very possible.  Lying to immigration can result in severe consequences...........and I would not advise anyone to risk it......

Understood. I wouldn't think 3 months is too soon, to be honest. You met in person within 2 years so that's all that they would have cared about.

No we didn’t. Just the time we met.

Make sure to correct it when it's time for the interview. 

 

If you get denied because of telling the truth is easier to overcome than getting denied because of lying. It can haunt you up until filing for citizenship. Just never do it.

Are you talking about when you first met each other on Instagram?  When did your first in-person meeting occur?  The I-129F doesn't ask you to explain when or how you first came to know each other, so for reasons of the petition it probably won't matter.  Depending on the level of detail that you went into about having met in July, you might be able to play it off at the interview as a simple typo.  But the DS-160 asks if you've ever lied on an immigration form before, and if you put "no", you will be lying again... It's a slippery slope.

Wonder what is meant by met.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

There is no benefit to lying.  You will need to bring this up at the interview.

i believe they will look at entry stamps on the USC passport to verify the dates of travel to see you

and BTW  one trip to meet will not be enough for this embassy

Okay maybe it was a lil confusing because of how I worded it.

we got to know each other in November (Met online)

Then we physically met in January, then filed in February.

 

In the petition, we claimed we met online in July, then met physically in January. We didn’t lie about when we physically met as that can easily be detected through entry and exit stamps. The lie is on when we actually got to know each other online.

I hope I have cleared things up a bit. Thanks for all your responses
