      I was issued a P1 visa (authorization to work in the US; performer status) which expired last year and I’m wondering if I should answer yes to whether i’ve been under immigration proceedings? Does this qualify? I am assuming not because the intent at the time was not for me to immigrate but only to work temporarily in the US. Also, is there somewhere else that I should include the info about my work visa other than in form i-765?

      We feel you may be getting confused on what “immigration proceedings” means. In simple terms, this refers to any proceeding before an immigration judge, or in immigration court.

      Before we move further, let’s make sure we’re on the same page. You’re referring to Form I-130, part C question 16 – “Has your relative ever been under immigration proceedings?”, right?

      If so, the question is addressed to your U.S. Citizen Spouse regarding you (green card applicant), which we believe is what you’re asking.

      If you have NEVER been removed, deported, had immigration conditions rescinded (typically green card revoked), or been involved in immigration court proceedings, then you can answer “No.”

      Alternately, if this is applicable to you, we recommend you to talk to an immigration attorney to see what is your best course of action, since we’re not attorneys.

      Hope this helps 🙂

        thanks for the clarification. I just wanted to be sure that one did not imply the other. Yes, I was referring to the question in form i-130, however, in form i-485 there is a space for ‘nonimmigrant visa number’. Do you think I should enter my p1 visa there, even if it has expired?
