What kinds of things could pose a problem with a spouse visa petition?

Ineligibility for a Visa: Some conditions and activities might make the applicant ineligible for a visa, but there may be a waiver available (so speak to an attorney about that, and the processes involved).  Examples of ineligibility include:

  • Having HIV/AIDS
  • Drug trafficking
  • Overstaying a previous visa
  • Practicing Polygamy
  • Submitting fraudulent documents

If you're want to petition for your spouse to come into the US on a spouse visa, you should speak with an immigration attorney to see if there are possible reasons why they might be ineligible for a visa and if there might be a waiver available
