I overstayed in UK for 15 months, because I was misguided by my immigration Lawyer. Now I am applying for a spouse visa to USA. Will my overstay affect my USA visa process?

  • By "spouse visa", you mean an immigrant visa for a spouse immigrating as the spouse of a US citizen or permanent resident, right?

  • Yes. I am getting married to a USA Green Card Holder. Will my overstayed affect my new visa process?

It shouldn't have any effect on getting an immigrant visa to the US.

    Can you please include any sources why you think it's okay?

  • @SztupY: There is simply no inadmissibility that this could involve. For example, they could not have issues with being suspected of having immigrant intent, because, well, they are immigrating.
