I won the DV Lottery 2013 but now my husband and my kids don't want to go. Can I go on the interview myself without my family?

Dallas, TX |

When applied to DV Lottery 2013 I included each member of my family when filling forms and each of us agreed to immigrate if we get approved. Now I have a date for an interview but my husband and my kids don't want to go to US. I still want to apply for me alone. Can I go on the interview myself alone without my family present at the time of the interview? Are there any chances that I may get approved? I couldn't find this information at USCIS instructions. Please give me your helpful advice. Thanks to all of you. God bless!

  4. Yes, of course. The Consul will surely ask for the family, but the bottom-line is that you are still entitled to the visa with, or without the family
