In less than a month, I will purpose to my Ukrainian girlfriend. To make a long story short, there is a question on the Visa Immigrant application that asks if she currently has family residing in the USA. So she would check off her mother, her brother, and myself (future fiance). Here is the catch. Back in 2007, her mother, brother, including herself traveled and lived in Georgia for 2 years with K1 and K2 visas. Her mother married this man but he never finished the paper work to make the 3 of them legal I guess is the word to use, or maybe for permanent status? Well whatever the case, he never did anything after that to finish the process. My girlfriend and I still don't know why to this day he never did. So as a result of that, my girlfriend had to immigrate back to Ukraine right before she turned 21. Her mother and brother are still here in the USA. Now here is my question. Its probably pretty obvious but what is her mother and brother's current status in the USA? The reason I ask is because one of the questions on the Immigrant application asks if she has family living here still. When it comes time to answer this question, what should she label her mother and brother as? The thing is, is that my girlfriend has a copy/proof of their marriage and visas that were used to immigrate over here at the time. My HUGE concern here is when it comes time for us to do this paper work, and furthermore, the interview, will this hurt her chances of getting her own K1 visa to come here and get married under the 90 day limit? I kept telling her it wont. Our situation is unique to her past situation. She left willingly to immigrate back before 21. And in all honesty, I am her sponsor now. I am in no way affiliated with this man and her mother's family in Georgia. I live in Arizona. And the main requirements of this K1 visa simply rely on OUR relationship and the proof we provide to the interviewers that our relationship is real. I mean the only ones that can get hurt here (correct me if I am wrong) are her mother and brother? Which means Immigration would track them down and are forced to immigrate back to Ukraine. And that would be only because her husband didn't continue the process to make them permanent residents. Her husband said this actually:" Our marriage and marriage certificate make you safe to stay here so its legal." I am not sure I buy that. So you can see my concern here. I don't think there is anything to worry about but I want to make sure. And if anyone has any information on what to call her mother and brother (hopefully other than illegal) when it comes time to answer that question, it would be most helpful! I guess I just want to put this to rest and know she can still get her own K1 visa because of our relationship, and most importantly that I am her sponsor now. Thanks!
