I am on L1 Visa and getting married in Aug. My fiance is trying to schedule an interview for an L2 Visa soon after our marriage.

Asked about 1 year ago - Redwood City, CA

She is filling out the DS160 application and mentioning the relationship status as "Other" and not spouse, although by the time she interviews, she would be my spouse. Is that okay?

    Answered . Probably should write "fiancee", but it would be better if she waited until you married her to complete the DS-160.

    Answered . As long as she tells the truth, the consular official can consider her request. If the appointments are very delayed, then the issue may be whether she is eligible for a visa at the interview. Unfortunately, consular discretion is occasionally frustrating. Good luck.

    If you have concerns and want an experienced immigration attorney to research the issue in more detail, with respect to the Consulate or Embassy involved, then I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference.
