“Once the USCIS and NVC approves the case, and the case is mailed out to the beneficiary’s local embassy for interview, should the interviewer still look at adjusted gross income or gross income?”
For the fiance visa, absolutely. Because they don’t even look at income until the embassy.
So, the next bit of news, this has been a topic for a while, and something that we started to see a lot of denials for at the beginning of the year. Since we do a lot of business with the Philippines with fiance visas and spousal visas, Philippines is one of the few countries in the world, to give you a little bit of history, that it’s really hard to get a divorce, especially if you marry in a Catholic church.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services believes that a large portion of marriage-based visa applications are fraudulent, and applied for only to circumvent the immigration process. Because of this, it’s a top priority of theirs to uncover these bogus relationships. One of the main requirements of the K1 visa is to prove that you have a bona fide relationship with your alien fiance.
The embassy interview is the final step in the fiancee visa application process. The applicant will need to meet face-to-face with a consular officer, usually at the US Embassy located in the applicant’s home country. The interview generally lasts 15 to 30 minutes and consists of between 5 and 10 questions. The focus of the questions is for the consular officer to determine if your relationship is bona fide.
