Hello guys. I really need some help here. I’m new to this forum so i don’t know if I’m doing this right haha. My fiancé is American and I’m Brazilian. He got arrested last year in December and is still waiting for his court day. He filled out the k1 visa process and got an RFE saying they need some proof of his criminal records and if it’s pending or not. But he has been calling so many people and nobody helped him. Saying they don’t have anything cuz he never went to court. Aka didn’t happened yet. Our deadline is getting closer. I’m scared. What should we do? Btw his lawyer the one they gave him from the government said he can’t do anything about it. I’m desperate you guys. Please some help or advice. 🥺
Hi all, We just received our RFE in the mail and it is requesting proof of termination of a previous marriage for my fiancé (the beneficiary)... but he's never been previously married. I'm posting to see if anyone else has more recently dealt with this and, if so, any advice to the following (as many of the topics I found regarding were fairly old on Visa Journey): 1. My fiancé was able to confirm an appointment to go to the county office and potentially receive a certificate indicating he has never had a previous marriage. 2. We plan to provide an additional written statement as well (looking for advice to the copy/if anyone recommends including anything else to this): "I, [my fiancé’s name], do hereby state that I have never been previously married. I have been and continue to be legally able to marry the person of my choosing. Additionally, I would like to reiterate and state that I am legally able and willing to marry [my name/petitioner], and intend to do so within 90 days of my arrival into the US using the K-1 visa." 3. Both of the above would have to be copies of the documents that he faxes over to me - is there any potential issues with submitting the copy versus the original of these two documents? (Worried that it'll take forever for him to put them in the mail to me and actually get them, etc.) 4. Is there anything else that we should do/provide to fulfill the RFE request? It's just so bizarre they are asking for this and indicate a record of a previous marriage - and hard to just "prove" that you have never been married versus submitting proof of a terminated one. I still plan on calling USCIS to try and get a hold of someone and see what else we can do. 5. I've seen mixed reviews on submitting "more proof of the ongoing relationship" (photos, travel documents, etc.) along with what the RFE request is - any advice on if we should include more ongoing evidence? A part of me is just stick to what they are asking (and had they wanted more proof of the relationship, they would have asked), the other side is I've seen people include ongoing proof and stating it's a benefit so I'm a little torn to include this. I know that we sort of have a plan here so I'm really looking for any additional advice or recommendations to some or all of the above. This process is certainly timely and I would kick myself if something goes wrong because I didn't just double check with people that have been through this and/or a similar situation. Thank you all so much for any advice and help on this!!!
I received an RFE and I read the first page and initially thought that they wanted me to submit translations for any documentation that was in another language. The second page indicates that I failed to answer a question regarding my criminal history. Answering that question is easy....NO! My question is is there template language on the RFE that reads, "If you submit a document in any language other than English, the document must be accompanied by a full and complete English Translation. The translator must certify that the translation is accurate and he or she is competent to translate from that language to English. If you submit a foreign language translation in response to this request for evidence, you must also include a copy of the foreign language document." Is this language that is sent on each form or are they asking me to get documentation (divorce decree and text messages submitted in Spanish) translated as well as answering my criminal history question. Also, there is a section on the RFE that asks Yes___ or No____ in regards to the criminal history, do I answer it on the form or resend the application with that question answered? Totally confused and I don't want to mess this up. See attached Scan__20190717_141834.pdf
