Immigration Issues/Interview set I-130approved
I have completed all process for my spouse. I am an american Citizen, he is Mexican. He was in the state illegally crossed in 7/02 and we met here and married in 6/03 shortly afterwards I started process. I was told he had to leave the US and he left. He has been in Mx for 2 yrs.
We have an interview set for next month NOV.05. all has been approved, Will I need to prepare in case they deny him due to his illegal overstay. He crossed the border illegally. Should I prepare for a denial? Will I need awaiver prepared? I make about 100k yrly. I processed all paperwork alone. I have 401k set up joint account property jointly in mexico etc. Now I just fear the illegal entry. What is the interview process in CD Juarez? Please advise.
The bad news is that he has a mandatory 10 year bar to reentering the US due to illegal presence exceeding 1 year. He needs a waiver. This will take awhile (last I checked, about 1 year) in Mexico.
The good news is that probably the best place in the world to seek a waiver is Mexico. This is not something that you should do alone. Retain an attorney.
