Relationship in Secret

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am the US citizen and she is a Malaysian Chinese.

 

We are 20 and it is really early to get married for the Chinese culture, but we both really want to be together and wish to start a new life.

 

We wanted to wait until the timing was okay with her culture but her parents hated me after I canceled a ticket to visit them because I learned they had committed a crime and it made me worried (no she has never committed a crime).

 

I know she is not using me and this relationship is genuine, but do you think the US will see that when we tell them her family doesn't know?

 

They won't go to the wedding, they won't be coming to the US, they won't have any part of our lives because they are very dysfunctional.

 

She is not using me, it is just an unfortunate part of her family history.

 

I have met her in secret and we have discussed our love, so it is genuine and I can prove it, but will the US accept that she will be leaving and marrying in secret?

The US would not really take into account the family circumstances. It is all about your relationship/marriage being real and legal, finances of course play a big part and preferably no criminal history. You need to be able to comply with the rules for the process and show evidence of that. Family trouble has no impact on the immigration process.

 

Good luck on your immigration journey!

I wouldn’t say that you’re getting married in secret. If asked about her family just simply say they are not very supportive but that you both have come to terms with that and (hopefully) your family is supportive of it which is why you are planning to bring her to US instead of you moving there.

The US embassy doesn't really care about family drama, the most important is to be able to prove the embassy that your relationship is real and gather as many proof that your relationship is solid.  however it wont be marry in secret if you apply this long K1 journey. Good luck tho..

That sounds like it will be hard to pull off in secrecy. 

We know. We are ready for a long battle as long as we can be together in the end.
