I told the US Consul about my US citizen boyfriend when trying to obtain a visa to visit him in 2007 and so was denied under 214(b) (could not prove intention to return). That boyfriend is now my husband and he is petioning for me to get an IR1 visa. Am terrified my previous B1/B2 denial will come back to haunt us...
