H4 Admin Processing


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

In 2014, I was charged for shoplifting @ walmart for merchandise  worth $44. I went to the court where the charge was downgraded and amended to a municipal township ordinance violation. I had no issues with my visa extensions and transfers since then. My wife had to go to India. Since her visa stamp was not valid, she went for stamping. During her visa interview she was told her visa is approved. After 3 weeks she received a 221g blue slip asking for arrest details. She does not have any arrest records or any law enforcement encounters. I am pretty sure this is something related to my case. I am planning to write a letter to the embassy and give them my documents related to the arrest. Since it was my wife's visa application I did not mention about the arrest record in DS 160. Had no intentions to hide. I have always put those records where ever asked but this time, it was only my wife who was going for stamping and I did not mention that. Even the VO mentioned that her visa is approved. We got 221g later. 

Has anyone had this issue before ? In case my wife's H4 gets denied, does that mean my H1B would also be effected ??
