  2. Hello VisaJourney, This is a tough one for me to type out- my fiancé and I have had a few rough days. Basically, he went to his interview at the US embassy in London last Wednesday and we were put into Administrative Processing immediately after the interview. I feel like this might be a little different because when I search the VJ forums for some similar situations and guidance, I saw that most Admin Processing occurred after being “approved” at the time of the interview. Here’s a bit of background info: Andrew and I met in 2011 at a music festival in Florida and became friends. We didn’t start dating until 2017. We got engaged in 2018. Before we even began the process, he told me that he had an arrest on his record from when he was 19 (we are both 31 this year). This arrest occurred at a train station when he was highly intoxicated. He apparently got into an argument with a worker at the station and this worker called the authorities. He was taken into custody and made to sleep there. The next morning, he told the officers that he didn’t remember anything that had happened and they told him that both his friends who were there made statements that he was being aggressive and that the arrest was warranted. They told him to sign a paper, a “confession,” admitting to what he’d done because there were witnesses. Andrew has never been a violent person, even as a silly college kid on drunken nights and definitely not any time since, so this was very strange-sounding to him. Very upset by what the police were telling him, he signed and exited the station to find his friends waiting, both saying that he had not been aggressive with the worker and they told the Police this. The woman at the front desk also made him sign a paper acknowledging what he was being charged with…. ASSAULT. He asked the woman why it said assault as that was not what happened, and the woman said “we have to file it under something.. don’t worry about it.” You can see from this story that Andrew has been trying to forget about this night since it happened- to the point that over the years, he has forgotten the date/time of the event. He doesn’t even know what type of assault he was charged with. He has not had ANY trouble with the law since. Because of all of this, we decided to hire a lawyer to get us through the process. Included in the paperwork was Andrew’s Police Certificate which stated “No Live Trace”—obviously meaning that there is *something* on his record. Our NOA1 was received on Aug. 16, 2018. Our NOA2 was received on Jan. 14, 2019. His interview was at 11:30am on April 3rd. He was very nervous about being asked about his arrest but would give them any information he could remember. He said the woman interviewing him was cold and unfriendly, which made him more nervous and eventually she asked about the arrest. He couldn’t provide the specific time/date of the arrest or what kind of assault he was charged with.. Our mistakes are known here: We were naïve in thinking they wouldn’t press for those details/ thinking they’d already looked up the details themselves. We also wish our lawyer would have prepared us for this At the end she filled out and handed him the piece of paper that said our case was going to Administrative Processing. When he asked how long that might take, she just said “I don’t know.” Is there any advice anyone on here could give us about this? Our story seemed unique enough that I couldn’t find anything similar and we are so worried/upset by this result. Will they just look into the arrest themselves or have us get the additional records from ACRO? Will there be a second interview? With something like “assault” will there just be an automatic denial??? We’re really struggling to stay positive here. Any advice would be appreciated.. -Allie & Andrew
