I am graduating with a Master degree this December (when I-20 expires). We have a family emergency and I was forced to fly back to my home country a few days ago. Since my F1 visa expired for more than a year already, I need to do an interview to renew it. I have my i-20 with signature, unofficial transcript, and a few bank statements to prove funding.
Normally, I wouldn't worry about a thing as I have renewed my F1 visa every time I came home during breaks, but I got married over the summer to a U.S. citizen. We have not filed for I-130. I did provide information about my marital status and my spouse on my DS-160, and indicated that nobody has ever filed a relative petition. My priority is still finishing my degree then my wife and I will move to my country for a few years.
I understand there is a chance my F1 visa might be rejected. Is it definite? What documents/evidence can I bring with me during the interview to increase my chances? TIA!
