I have some questions. I came to the US by DV lottery. When I was filling DV lottery online I was another country and I can't enter my family information to online application. And the second level I was at home but my wife does want to come US, she said I want to care about our grandmother. My grandmother was quiet ill she can't move and walk and my wife want to care about her. When I was at embassy I can't bring my family to consulate of US in my country. At the interview on checklist I marked single. I took visa and came to US in 2010. Last year my grandmother died. Now my wife asked bring her to the U.S.
Please I need help or give me advises. Thank you.
You don't listen to advice. I suggested to call a lawyer not to put all that information online. You made a misrepresentation to uscis. If it is determined to be material, which it may or may not be, you will have serious problems. Call a lawyer. Trying to get through this yourself will almost certainly not succeed and you could jeopardize your green card.
You need to consult with an experienced immigration attorney. The fact
of the matter is that you were not single at the time you obtained your
immigrant visa. While this could be considered fraud, it is most likely
not a material misrepresentation. Unfortunately, since your family did
not immigrate with you it will be necessary for you to file separate
petitions for them as dependents can only be included in diversity
lottery cases when they immigrate within the same fiscal year.
