    The reason for the denial was that I need to establish domicile in the US and show proof of it. I really don't know the reason for this since I already have a financial joint sponsor. How long will this take? The problem is that he was supposed to get the visa since the interview but the consulate decided not to. What is the reason for this new procedure of having to go back to the US in order for the visa. This is not for a k-3 visa, it's for an immigrant visa.
    Did anyone else married to a foreigner in a foreign country be told to return to the US during the interview? The weird thing is that I was required to be there during the interview, yet was then asked to go back to the US??
    The problem is that I cannot leave the US now or go see him until this is done with and he gets a visa.
    Does anyone know how long this process takes?
    Does anyone know of another way my husband can come to the US?

    2 months is not a long time in the world of immigration, Dawn and believe me, 8 months for the initial interview was remarkably short. Have you contacted the Consulate since?

    I'm a little confused who you mean when you say "Ministry of Foreign Affairs". There's no such thing in the US and I wonder if you're talking about the ministry in your husband's country, in which case, it would absolutely not help. Complaining in the US to the USCIS, or even going to your State Senator/Representatives is unlikely to yield any results either. Since DHS took over, it's even more secretive than before.

    It would help if we knew what the reason was for the denial. Until we know, we'd merely be guessing.

    yuo are not the only one in this situation.. it happens
    Maybe your next step should be calling / sending email to the embassy to see when they will review the papers.

  • I-130 Spouse Immigrant Visa denial. Need some help, please. At my wit's end

    I am a US Citizen married to a foreigner overseas. I have applied for the immigrant visa for my husband and got approved by the USCIS almost a yr ago. We went for our appointment to the US Embassy, after 8 months of waiting, and my husband was fingerprinted during the interview. However, my husband was denied a visa and they told me to come back to the US to establish domicile and send documents of proof until they can give him a visa. I did that and came back alone and sent all proof along with a prepaid express self addressed return envelope, as requested bt them. Yet, they never replied even though they did promise and I tracked my envelope and they recieved it almost 2 months ago Any suggestions on what to do? The weirdest thing is that I already have a joint sponsor who has given all proof of financial responsibility and I have given the sponsor general power of attorney, yet I was still required to go back to the US and show proof of my settling back to the US. I'm at my wit's end here. I have no idea why they did this to me.

    I'm thinking of writing to the ministry of foreign affairs. Do you think they'll help? What documents should I enclose with my letter? Please help. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
