Q: Did I Just Get DUPED By the USCIS Office In Indianapolis, INDIANA?
I attended a USCIS Adjustment interview less than a week ago, with my husband who is the petitioner on my I-130. The interviewing USCIS Officer casually asked me to sign a document to "confirm" that my attorney was not present at the Interview. I did not read the document before signing it.
The Interview went very well and my husband and I were interviewed together and my husband did not sign and was not asked to sign any document at the interview.
Then just earlier today, I saw a notification on my USCIS account informing me that since I had signed a document requesting that my I 130 petition be withdrawn, the USCIS had agreed to my request and the Service had mailed me a "Withdrawal Acknowledgement Notice" that I should expect in the mail.
I had no idea the USCIS can DUPE innocent Applicants / Petitioner and the beneficiary like this.
What do I do now?
A: They most likely determined at the interview that it was a fraudulent marriage.
A: You should immediately speak with an attorney. If everything went well as you say and this is what happened you need to have someone acting on your behalf. The lawyer will make suggestions after listening to the details of the interview and looking at your documents and hearing more about your marriage.
