Denied

54 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

:cry: I called the DOS yesterday and they took my heart and dropped it like a vase. Visa denied. Case being sent to NVC then to USCIS. I either get to appeal (I called my congressman's office) or the USCIS will re- something it then it gets sent back to the embassy and he gets a new interview date. Strange thing is Khalid wanted me to repeat what they said to me (after I calmed down - I was crying so hard he didnt know if i got good news or bad news at first - I had been on the phone with him and he knew I had just called the DOS) and I didnt want to go over it again or couldnt so i told him to call the DOS himself gave him the # and he called me back after awhile and said that he called three different times and spoke to three different ppl and they all told him it is still in AP at the embassy. :cry: He wants me to have hope again cuz he does. But the woman helping me from the congressman's office said she called the dos and got the same story i did. i called back and got the same woman as the first time and she told me what she told me initially. :cry:

very sorry to hear this. i know the heartache you must be going through. ask your congress contact to see if they can do what they can to keep it in the embassy. if it has in fact been sent to USCIS, you could be in for awhile (although they seem to be picking up the pace on review of returned petitions. ours was reviewed in 7 months) once uscis reviews, they will either re-confirm on their own, or issue a NOID or NOIR (notice of intent to deny/revoke). if i were you, i would start gathering all the information possible (and then some) to rebutt the consular's findings.

also, if you haven't already, you might consider hiring a reputable attorney. one who has dealt with returned petitions, and can show you documented proof of their success. good luck, and again, sorry for what you are going through.

edited to say, the reason i say start gathering info to rebutt now, is because you have a very limited time to get these items together once USCIS issues their decisions. i have seen as little as 14 days, and very very few as much as 30 days. so it is a small window of time.

Dear Madam,

We have returned the subject case to the National Visa Center with recommendation of revocation. Therefore, please forward your inquiry to the National Visa Center after 2-3 weeks at the following email address:

Hope this information will be helpful.

I want to visit my husband, and wait with him in Pakistan for his visa.

Is it likely that I'd have to return to the US for an interview?

Without my husband??

Would they consider doing the interview at the embassy?

And the fingerprints if these are needed?

ok. well i filed the 130 then i filed the 129. that is what you do when you want your spouse to wait here while the 130 finishes or this is what i understood. they were both approved by the uscis at the same time. i sent in the fee for the 130 then i called the nvc with a question about the 130 and they told me then that the 129f had already been sent to the embassy and i needed to decide which one to pursue so i said i want to pursue the 129. the 129 is what was essentially denied by the embassy so i called the nvc this am and i am having them restart the processing of the 130. hope this clears things up. i am a jumbled mess .. have been since i called the dos yesterday. now my husband is depressed as well and i feel so bad for him. i was the mess yesterday and he was the one pulling me out of it and now i have to try to be strong and help him through. this is marriage. how dare they deny me my husband. how dare they deny him his visa. im so angry. i think im numb. i cried enough yesterday for the both of us. and now im numb and well angry. sorry just venting. i am about to call the dos again and demand to know WHY.

SALAAMS.

I did go to Pakistan in February to wait with him til he got his visa - then my ex called and said he was going to be deployed and i need to come back so i can take the kids - long story there - and so in april i came back to the states and Alhamdulillah i have my kids but this also means i cant visit my husband anymore. i'd live in pak with khalid if it were not for my kids. i am not allowed to take them outside of the continental us. my ex is an a**hole. with a capital A. lol.. sorry. i accepted islam, my ex being military gave me the hardest time ever i filed for divorce due to all that and got the kids then when he had them for the summer i travelled to the uk to marry khalid who was living there at the time. it was my bright idea to go to pakistan where we could marry legally. he has been stuck in pak ever since. anyway while i was away with my husband in pak my ex went to court without my knowledge and got an order for temp custody cuz he told them he feared i was going to take my children out of the country, yada yada yada. this has all been so hard. Allah gave me my children back. Alhamdulillah. Is it too much to ask to have my husband as well ? thats all i want. a complete family again. like i used to have. but with this gentle amazing man i am proud to call my husband.
