We put down no for immigration proceedings, when we not sure on the I-130 form. We got the foia after we filed the I-130, which stated
Subject is inadmissible pursuant to section 212 ( A ) ( 7 ) ( a ) ( I ) ( I ) of the INA subject is inadmissible pursuant to section 212 ( A ) ( 7 ) ( a ) ( I ) ( I ) of the INA , and was processed for Withdrawal of Application I 275 . He was allowed to withdraw his application for admission and voluntarily returned to Mexico . Subject's name was processed in the ( b ) ( 7 ) ( e ) system with negative results
Our I-130 was approved about a week ago and we are know just waiting on National Visa Center to send us information.
You put the right information on the I-130. Withdrawal of request for admission is NOT "immigration proceedings ", which is the polite way of describing deportation or removal proceedings in immigration court.
I don't think wife will face problems at the consulate due to that past withdrawal. It is not a bar to readmission as the spouse of a US citizen.
The concern is whether she was summarily excluded from United States. Also, whether this would be the equivalent of proceedings. It is true that she may have an alien number. If she does, included.
If you have concerns, then play it safe. Present and write out what she has and don't answer yes or no just write "see attached."
If you have any further questions, schedule an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Good luck.
