Fremont, CA asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: F2B visa holder with a daughter question?

I arrived here in the US through an F2B visa 2 weeks ago. I have a daughter who was born a month after I got interviewed at the embassy.

My problem is will this be a reason for me being deported? Will complications arise when I decide to marry my daughters mom in the future?

A: Dear Sir,

The main question here is whether you answered the questions truthfully at the time of the interview. It appears to me that you have since your daughter was born AFTER your interview. When you are ready to marry your daughter's mother, you should consult with an experienced immigration attorney to review all the facts and make certain that there was no misrepresentation and if any whether such misrepresentation was "material." If you have been truthful the entire time, then you have nothing to be concerned about.

If you post additional follow questions here, I will be happy to answer them.
