This scripted nonsense just shows how far producers will go for a quick $. I'm sure the participants are in on it and are recompensed for their efforts to ham up the melodrama, however it kind of goes away from the original premise of showing what the process is like for a K1 visa. Not informative in that sense. Now it's just the pitfalls of long distance relationships with cultural divides, misunderstandings/ miscommunication etc.
Theres nothing factual in these shows that would have a practical help on those embarking on the visa journey.
I think all of us watching happily do do knowing we are not all in basket case marriages!
Ps have to mention Liam.... waaaah waaah waaah there's no money for me if she stays with you.. I'm sure I heard him say that his mother has "got to look after me".
He's in his 20's! How long is she supposed to be supporting his sorry behind?
I would be gutted if my child ever came up with that reasoning into adulthood.
Not sure if several posters were being well meaning or just scaremongering in terms of the OP husbands status. There is genuine fear with all the new rules and seemingly tighter restrictions on citizenship etc..
My take is that IF a person overstays their visa and you happen to be in a committed relationship then living together is a no no as you are aiding and abetting someone who's violated their original visa according to some people's opinion.
On the flip side, should you then want to AOS etc with this "overstayer" how are you going to prove you have a genuine relationship? as lots of the evidence people take are bills, leases etc io them living together.
It might be just me not getting it.
Reading through the thread I do see why the OP became frustrated as it may look to her like people are ready to pounce and take glee from the apparent transgressions that "may" have occurred. OP did their best to keep it on topic to the specific help that was being requested.
Having said that we should all be mindful of our responses, this medium is very difficult to ascertain anybody's true intentions, it might be genuine concern or it might not be. Have a thicker skin, you can choose to take the advice they were offering or leave it.
My personal opinion, you have nothing to concern yourself with, you've hidden nothing on the forms.
Everybody (on countless boards has said during interview time, answer only the questions asked, don't offer up more than is needed) That in mind, have you done anything illegal? I can't say but I wouldn't worry about obtaining the services of lawyers etc as some have suggested, it's a step too far.
as for the forms... we are talking minimal effort in downloading and inputting the information you already have, to what you will know is definitely the most up to date forms.... why risk it?
I think you are resigned to having your husband completing a new I-693... put it down to a learning experience!
Dont be put off asking further questions... remember though you might not always like the responses you receive!
i) Hello thanks for the reply. I was thinking more about hints and tips (what's easy/quicker etc) , not just about filling out of the form. Anyway I will trudge through the questions and see if there are any roadblocks up ahead.
ii) I guess that's probably better although they shouldn't then give the option grrrr
iii) I have not been in the US for 5 years. I was made an LPR approx 3 and a bit years ago. So should I ignore details from trips that have nothing to do with my LPR status?
