Customer Question
I would like some...

I would like some advice regarding F-1 visa.

Lawyer's Assistant: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?

My girlfriend applied for for university program in US and she was admitted. She has a visa inyerview at the Lithuanian US embassy. I'm sposnoring half of the educations costs. However, as I understand its not prudent to mention that she has a boyfriend in US as it could lead to visa denial?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

I live in US and she lives in Lithuania.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

From what i have read on forums, she needs to show what my relationship is to her and why i'm providing the funds
