My wife was refused entry to U.S on Aug-2004 for the first time. and they put this stamp on her passport : REFUSED Per 8 CFR 217.4(b) charges: 212a7AI Then she tried to enter second time in Dec-2004 but she was refused again and they wrote in her passport like this with pen: Refused 8 CFR 217.4(a)(1) and made her sign a written statement in which stated that she lied that she was never been refused entry into the US before. This time they didn't specify any charges except this clause 8 CFR 217.4(a)(1) The biggest mistake i have ever made is haven't applied I-130 for my wife till today's date. As earlier I was a permanent resident and was told there are no waivers for your wife as she has lied/miss represented herself and she has been barred for 10 years.... and was told the only way she can be eligible for a waiver is if I became a U.S citizen. So i just became a U.S citizen and wondering if I can bring my wife and two kids ages 8 and 12 by applying to DCF (Direct consular filing) ... i read about this option at the following location "https://www.visajourney.com/content/compare/" instead of going through I-130 process..... as its been over 14 years since she was refused.... so even if she was barred for 10 years the bar should have been over now .... correct me if i am wrong…. or dose she still needs a waiver?. If I have to apply for I-130 for my wife can I include my 2 kids in the same petition or do I have to file separate I-130 for my kids…. My kids were never been refused or came to U.S. Can someone give any suggestions or help to this matter ..... thanks in advance.
