K1 Visa Denied - Santo Domingo

66 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

My fiancee and I are both devastated. Our K1 peition wa denied on the grounds that our relationship is in order to just get a Visa. This could not any more devastating.

We have been together for over two years and provided a wealth of evidence to prove a true relationship. The consular officer was nasty from the start. She called us to window 25 and did not speak Spanish very clearly, making my fiancee extremely nervous, as she could not understand her well. She did not introduce herself or acknowledge us once we were at her window and we waited literally 3 minutes while she did not glance at us or say a word and simply typed away. She then asked how we met. My fiancee could not get 2 words in until she was interrupted a few times and it was more than evident the CO was not understanding her.

My fiancee messed up on the question of where we stayed as she said my parent's house that they own in DR and on this trip the Apt we rented for my stay. I told the CO in English that we stayed in my parent's house the 1st trip and for the other 5 trips I made in the last 2 years I rented an apt, which is true. Unfortunately, I had no receipts or lease, since these were temporary stays. CO honed in and tried to accuse me of fraud with my prior marriage during which I had filed an I485 for my exwife. She insinuated that we separated prior to her conditional residence becoming permanent. It felt like the whole time it was about us trying to do fraud and not necesarilly about our relationship.

She asked so so little about us and we brought over 200 photos in 2 albums that included pictures with my fiancee's family as well for my 5 visits to DR. She quickly skimmed through the album for less than 2 seconds each and continued to type away and make facial expressions and speak condescendingly. I was so shocked as to how we were being treated as if we were criminals and I just knew she was looking to decline us from the start. Her body language, demenaor, and tones were all so negative and unprofessional. The other COs were joking with petitioners, asking many questions, and unfortunately I was not treated this way. Seems like this window is for fraud. Everyone who went to this CO was given such a difficult time. I understand there is much Visa fraud, but I honestly feel like it was just going downhill from the start.

We were then sent to the fraud interview and my fiancee and I answered all questions to point. The agent told me at the end that he felt everything was very well and that it was a legitimate relationship to him, but that it was not his call. he could have just said that, but it was good to hear. at the end he said he also confirmed with someone that my exwife and I were not together for a long time and that she is in a relationship.

In the end, we were called back to the interviewing CO and she said our visa was denied. That we would not be approved under k1 even if we refiled. My heart sunk at this.

I went back home and immediately called the Embassy to ask for a Senior Consulate Officer to review our case. I was not succesful. The rep on the phone advised my they would escalate my case. I gave up on that but asked them to rereview it anyway before it leaves for the US for final decisioning.

I emailed the embassy and explained what took place and asked for a Senior CO to contact me. I received a standard message advising that we may reapply at any time and also that we may submit additional evidence for the CO to review. I responded and asked when and where can I drop off the evidence and I'm waiting for a response. The CO did not even take my financial evidence or allow me to submit the additional evidence I had left inside our packet (greeting cards and letters). Is anyone aware of how to submit additional information for review and what the chances are they'll reconsider?

I also emailed my Senator and asked for support from him to call the Embassy and request a Senior CO re-review our case. I plan on calling his office Monday to see if there is any help his office can provide. It's a long shot, but we're so desparate and broken hearted.

I am considering having a small wedding before I leave DR and getting married here and filing for a K3. I just dont want them to think we did this as a result of the denial and have them decline it again.

I honestly feel lost and I am looking to see if anyone can provide any advice or options we can explore.

Its a high fraud country & your prior dealings with immigration resulted in

swift break-up, so this raise a red-flag, after you marry and file spousal

it ay be easier.....One does not need 200 photos seem like over-reach, a

lot of wire transfer papers are not help-ful,.....photos with friends & family

members, your small wedding plus a few others is enough

I am unclear whether the problem was with beneficiary not speaking English, your past immigration case (you had another person sponsored - same country?), or your too much evidence - 200 pictures, (bi)monthly money remittances.

Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. I am still in DR and will be staying until the end of the first week of March. I responded to the last email from the embassy asking when and where we could drop off the evidence. My concern is that I go there Monday morning first thing and I'm not allowed in. Unfortunately this is not my forte, as far as knowing what rights I have within the US Embassy. Would I be escorted out, jailed, or simply ignored? Any suggestions or information around this would be extremely helpful. I do not mind at all spending all day there Monday to speak with the Chief and request a second review. I'd even suggest another fraud interview be conducted, as I have full confidence in our relationship.

The CO was American. Spoke Spanish with a bad accent. I was not given the exact reason for the K1 denial, as it simply states incorrect information was provided. I'm assuming it was when my fiancee was asked where we stayed and the CO was asking about apartment leases and such. She structured the question in such a way that it was unclear as to what she was asking. The CO also did not understand my fiancee when she responded.

I can get a copy of the apartment I leased in the US with both our names. I can get copies of all the receipts for all the times I paid for an apartment here in DR in order to clarify the questions and red flags they may have. I can bring in signed and notarized affidavit from multiple family Members and relatives of ours here in DR acacknowledging our relationship. I can bring in all our greeting cards along with copies since these were not reviewed. I can also print additional pictures of us spending time with her family during our trips. We can reactivate both of our Facebook accounts and print pages upon pages of pictures, messages, and posts about each other and also provide passwords to both accounts for them to verify. Again, I have no doubt AT ALL that anyone with a brain can put it all together. I'm not demeaning the original CO, but that way it was handled, I was not treated as a USC trying to marry his spouse, but rather as a criminal trying to commit fraud for a Visa.

Does anyone think this may work if I can provide all this evidence to the Chief at the Embassy? I am open to getting married, but do not want to give them reason to believe we are doing it just for the Visa. I appreciate all your help very much. I apologize for the formatting, as I write all this from my cell phone. Thank you.

I just want to ask: did you send all that evidences with your petition?

Or only did you bring the evidence to the interview?

If you didnt send all the evidences with the petition packet, then there was the problem.

Many people at DR dont send evidences with the petition packet, and that is a big problem, because the CO study the petition packet before interview and they take the desicion before interview , if you dont send the evidences with the petition packet, the day of the interview they dont review evidences.

For that it is good send all evidences with the petition, because that packet will be send to Santo Domingo and they study all that before you go to interview.

Maybe you didnt send a lot of evidences with your packet , waiting that they will go review the evidences at rhe interview.

Sorry, but at DR the co make pass bad time to people, because many people make fraud here.

I actually did send all the evidence with the original package. I also brought the same, updated, and additional evidence to the interview. Unfortunately, there was evidence that the CO did not even review while we were there that we brought to the interview.

This brings back vivid horrors of how we and others were treated at Guayaquil -- like fraudulent criminals.

Hindsight is 20/20... having to do it over again, I'd have not left the place until I got to speak with the Section Chief of the Immigrant Visa Unit (= the CO's boss).

You say that you're "back home" -- in the U.S.? You might want to turn around, go back to the D.R., and not leave the embassy until you get to meet face-to-face with the Section Chief of the IVU.

Whether calling or visiting (forget e-mailing), insist on speaking with an American. Play the "USC" card. You will not stand wasting your time dealing with Foreign Service Nationals (the locals who work at the embassy). You are an American and you insist on speaking only with an American, and "anyone who blows me off or fails to transfer my call to a live line or hangs up on me will be in deep trouble." You are indignant and righteous and have every right to redress of your grievances.

Egad, but this brings back memories that still leave me shaking with anger.

[Moderator hat off]

I totally agree with this post and for me it also brings back bad memories because our K1 was also denied. We re filed and he is here now and we are married

filing AOS soon.

If you are not allowed inside the consulate again then go to the embassy section that is for any USC to enter at any time.

Once there work your way to the consulate department and remain confident and insist on not leaving until you speak to the section chief, firm but

not yelling.

Do exactly what TBone said, throw your I AM A USC around the place but walk the fine line to not piss the wrong people off !

Tell whoever will listen that you were told you can bring more evidence and you have it in hand to give to the section chief PERSONALLY.

Tell them that you believe the CO "was in error" by refusing to look through your evidence.

Been there, done that. Stay strong. You have to act quick, the longer you wait the less chance you have.

Tell them in detail in a time line of why you and your ex divorced, bring it with you. Bring all the apt. receipts, bring the kitchen sink !

Print out the FB pages, everything.

Affidavits from family....bring it.

Tell your senator to a.s.a.p make a phone call to the liason there and request another interview due to the fact that you believe your CO

acted "in error" in handling the case. Use that verbage.

Here is the error : refusal to look through your evidence, talk about escalating

by someone on the phone contradicts the CO's stance, the confusion about a.) you receiving a standard email saying you can re file but b.) the CO

saying you will never be approved even if you re file....all the blah blah the CO spewed at you, list it.

Were you given a 221g, checked or written reason for refusal ?

If you can fight this with all you have got then lay low and wait before even thinking about getting married, you could very well go through an internal

review or AP and then get a turn around and approval. Unless you know for sure that the case has been returned (have senator get the diplomatic

pouch number ) don't get married. If the case truly gets returned then get married and file again, it will not give an impression that you are

doing it for immigration only but is proof that you are serious no matter what and want to be together.

I have read other posts before with your consulate talking rabbit poop and then approval after AP. A tough and confusing place to be in.

If your petition was returned then get married because a CR1 for you is better than another K1. Should a future CR1 get returned then you will have

a chance to answer a NOIR request and proof your case again whereas a returned K1 will always expire and die.

Sit tight for now and wait what they will do after you have done all you can do Monday, stay longer there, don't leave for the USA yet.

I have the same experiense My k1 visa was denied, you have two choise: if they will send Back to uscis you can appeal, if not, get married and file your i130 for a cr1 visa. Is Up to you. What i do before is get married, file My i130, when i went Back to the consulate for an interview, they asking a lot of questions and bring My husband an I to the black Room, they call it, fraud and prevención, and in that Room they ask a hundred questions to husband and spouse to verify the true relationship
