Concerns about I-129F

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, my name is Diane and my fiancée is Ganiu. He’s from Lagos Nigeria. This is my first time posting this forum. I recently submitted me and my fiancée I-129F. How I have a concern after reading an earlier post, where one of the members stated she and her fiancée’ also from Nigeria referred to each other as husband and wife. She was advised to black out those words and never to refer to each other as husband and wife again. However, I had already submitted my petition before reading this.

Hopefully the Specialist that interview my fiancée will see that we referred to each other as husband/wife starting from the very first day we started chatting May 2005 and that there was no way we could have gotten married, because we did not met until June 2006, this is when we became engaged and had our engagement ceremony, NO WEDDING because I was still legally married to my estrange husband here in the states. My divorce was not final until June 18, 2007, which a copy is also included as well.

My question is has anyone else included emails and chat conversations referring to each other as husband/wife such as mine ever been denied the K1 and ask to file K3? Also, November 2006 we applied for a “Tourist Visa,” but was denied, do you think this will affect the K1 as well?

Thanking you in advance for your assistance.

I answered on the other site, but I would think you could black that out on each email. Then make a copy of the page so that one cannot see thru the blackout.

I have seen others who applied for a visitor visa and were denied who then obtained a k1 visa. I believe Zeborah007

Hmmm, this is a good question. I've never thought about it, but now that you mentioned it, I have some emails where we refer to each other as husband and wife, but we have a preponderous of info. that shows we are not married, like my parents letters talking about our wedding date, wedding contracts, etc. I would hope that they would look at this info. and see that it is a term of endearment. I have already shipped my packet to my fiance so it's too late. If you haven't shipped the package yet, do what JJ suggested or you could simply write a letter. In my letter of intent to the embassy, I talked about our relationship and the different names that he uses for me because he doesn't call me by my birth name. So, you could do something similar by explaining in your heart you are already husband and wife and call each other so as a term of endearment on the phone and in letters to one another.

I hope this :help:'s.

The fact that he was denied a tourist visa shouldn't affect the K1 visa at all, because the requirements for each are different. For the tourist visa, you have to prove that you have strong ties to your country and that you will NOT be immigrating to America. For the K1 visa, you have to prove your relationship and your intent to marry.

My fiance and I refered to each other as husband and wife, in a lot of our emails. I picked through all of them and left out all that mentioned husband or wife. That left out almost 200 of them. I don't know how many I chose for him to bring to the interview. There were a lot, more then 100 and he was told at the interview, what he had was way too much. So, he just gave them a handful. If you can't find any with out saying husband or wife, I would mark it out as JJ said. Wish you the best.
