Will I be denied at my Cr1 visa interview?I met my husband in April 2012 while he was visiting my country Jamaica(he's also Jamaican born now us citizen) At the time we met, he was married to someone else but have been separated from 2011. He made several visit to see me. He proposed to me April 2013. His divorce was final September 2013 and we got married October 2013. My husband filed an I-130 and it was approved and NVC sent us our interview date. Will I be denied at the because we started dating before the divorce? Please advise me I am really worried.
That should not be a problem since he was divorced when he married you. However, if the issue comes up, be prepared to articulate and document his separation from his ex-wife. I do suggest that you talk with an experience immigration attorney before going to the interview. It is helpful to know what to expect at the interview and very much worth the consultation fee.

Dating before the divorce will not be a reason for denial. Notwithstanding the approval of the I-130, be sure to attend the interview with other evidence of the good faith of the marriage which you have.
It may be a good idea to consult with an immigration attorney.
