Hi All, My husband is immigrating from Pakistan to the U.S., hopefully in the next couple of months, fingers crossed and lots of prayers. Thankfully our paperwork we submitted to the NVC was approved so, now we're waiting for the embassies to open back up for his visa interview to be scheduled. As we prep for his visa interview, we have noticed a few people had questions about their previous marriages during their visa interviews. One alarming trend is visa interviewers asking for proof of previous marriage besides the divorce certificate. Our questions are: 1.) Why would the interviewers ask for further evidence, is there something in the case that may flag this? 2.) How did you answer these questions (did you have photos, affidavits, etc.)? 3.) Would you recommend having more evidence, besides a divorce certificate, for a previous marriage? Our concern is that my husband only has a divorce certificate as proof for his previous marriage. His first marriage was an unhappy one, they took no photos together, and the wedding was more of a tribal/religious ceremony with no paperwork being filed, we truly only have the divorce certificate as evidence. We are debating whether or not to gather some of the attendees and the mullah who presided over the previous marriage to write an affidavit for my husband to take to the interview. We want to make sure we cover all bases, this probably seems like small peas in the grand scheme of a visa interview but, you never know. Would love advice from folk's who experienced this themselves. Thank you!
