  1. Golly gee, please forgive me for asking a simple question. I'm sure you've never asked a stupid question in your life, right? Perhaps rather than laugh at someone who is making a genuine effort to understand an important but complicated process you could have a little more compassion. Or maybe not. In any case, the helpful advice I received from others was worth the annoyance of having to read your condescending response.
  2. Thanks for the feedback. We are currently living together in Peru. I have my legal residency here, so the situation is not urgent. That being said, I know this is a long process, and we would like to move back to the states when possible. I believe you are correct that she was given a 5-year ban. Do you know anything about the procedure for applying for a waiver and the likelihood that it will be granted? Also, should we go ahead and begin the visa application process anyway?
  3. missileman, yes that is correct, but it was our understanding that that only applies to her ability to enter the US as a tourist. Are you aware of whether or not it will affect her ability to be granted a spousal visa?
  4. Hi all! I am beginning the process of applying for a spousal visa for my wife, who is a Peruvian citizen. We are trying to do the process without a lawyer, so we have some important questions we need help with. Most importantly, my wife was previously in the US on a tourist visa. She came back to Peru and then tried to re-enter the US but was denied re-entry due to suspicion of working illegally. Attached is a photo of the cancelled visa on her passport. There were never any formal legal proceedings, and nothing was ever proven regarding the alleged employment. She was simply sent back to Peru and her visa was cancelled. My question is this. I'm aware that deportation can create significant problems for future visa applications. But I believe technically what happened with my wife is not a deportation. Is this correct? Assuming that what happened to her was NOT a deportation, does anyone know if the cancellation of her tourist visa will cause problems with the spousal visa application? Lastly, some people have advised us to have her apply for a new passport (so the cancelled visa won't appear). Is this good advice? Will it make any difference if we use her current passport with the cancelled visa or apply for a new one? Thanks so much!
  5. I am getting ready to start the process of applying for a spousal visa for my wife. We currently live in Lima, Peru, and unfortunately the USCIS recently stopped allowing applications to be done through the US embassy here. So I am currently trying to figure out how to do the process from abroad without having to make a trip back to the US, and I have a couple questions. My permanent US domicile in a house that I own in Knoxville, TN. However the house is currently rented to a tenant, and I can't receive mail there. So I would like to use my father's address in New York for all of the correspondence related to the application. So my first question is whether there will be any problems resulting from the fact that the application will be filed using an address that is different from my US domicile. Secondly, my father's address is a P.O. Box. Will that cause any problems? Thanks in advance for any feedback or advice!
