Default Advice needed urgently please

Some time ago I met Sveta, from Ukriane, on the internet and we formed a platonic
friendship over about a year. I had decided to go to Poland on a lark to be "out of
my comfort zone". Sveta and I thought about meeting up in Poland but towards the last
minute decided not to. It seemed a bit much. I go to Poland and when I return I find
out that she had also been there for a vacation. We did not meet but we kind of
wished we had. Sometime later she informed me that she had been invited by an
Easteren university here in the states to study in their graduate program, she
decided to take up the offer and that if she got her f-1 she would come a couple of
months early to imporove her english and perhaps she would come to my city to visit.
She had connections here and it made her feel a bit more comfortable. She got the
f-1, she came to my city and we fell in love. After a couple of months she left to
begin her studies back east. After a couple of weeks and several phone calls we
decided, dammit, lets get married. So, she dropped out of the easteren university,
came here, we got married, she applied to the graduate program here and was accepted
(after all, she did come here to study), we filed for AOS, bought a house and some 11
months later we had a baby boy and are waiting for the interview. Sveta was concerned
about the conservitive nature of her parents and did not think they would handle the
idea of her and I getting married after only a couple of months of really knowing
each other so she told them that we had met in Poland and that I had proposed then.
Here's the sticky part. Last week, her mother applied for a visiters visa to be the
God Mother at our sons Christening. At her interview she was asked how her daughter
and I met and she told them the Poland story. Of course she was denied the visa. Now
Sveta and I are worried about how this will effect our upcoming interview. We
absolutely did not meet in Poland. Will this be brought up at the AOS interview? If
so, how should we handle it? She is currently attending the university. We are both
worried that they will not believe us and that she will be forced to go back and we
have our baby and life is so good.

Any advice and/or help would be appreciated,

Bob

The horror of immigration......what a story Bob, I sure hope you will find
the solution.

I would in your case, go over to the local INS and tell them the whole true story.
May sound tricky, but what other options are there......if the interview is coming up
and the results of your mother in law visa applications are in your file, I expect
problems. Try being ahead of that, by explaing (on paper and verbally) what the whole
deal was. I would say people must be able to understand your position........

Mind you: I am just thinking up load.

Lots of luck!

BTW I assume you cannot travel from the Ukraine on a Visa Waiver?
