Florissant, MO asked in Immigration Law for Missouri

Q: I met my now fiancee (for almost three years now) when she was a webcam model in the Romania. Should we tell the truth?

I am interested to know if we should tell the truth about how we met, or if we should say that we met on a video game (somewhat valid since we played a MMORPG together for two years) or forum community.

I was also a male model at the time, but in the United States of America it is legal, whereas in Romania it is illegal. I have been visiting her in Romania about every four months.

Should we tell the truth of how we met when applying for the K-1? Or are these details easy to ignore?

A: If you are hoping for an attorney to tell you that you should lie or be misleading, I don't believe you will get the answer you desire.

A: You should always tell the truth when it comes to an immigration matter. If it is determined that you deliberately mislead an interviewing officer for an immigration benefit, not only would that benefit be denied, but this action could negatively impact other requests for immigration benefits in the future.
