Recommended Posts

I'm a US citizen and my husband turned in all paperwork. They called him in and asked him questions and took his passport but that was in May. They said his paperwork was still in process. Its been almost 5 months already. What could possibly be taking so long? Also I'm wondering was that considered the interview? Someone help please??

What shoes the case status site say about your case. Sounds like that was the interview and he is most likely in Administrative processing. Hard to say how long it will take.

***** Moving from K3,  to AP forum for more answers *****

 

 

yes it sounds like that was the interview.  AP is quite common in certain countries.  Are there any red flags in your case, such as large age difference, recent divorce, only one visit or marryijng on first visit, previous immigration attempts?

I have been over there twice.  Once last year and once this year.  There is a 1 year difference between us.  Neither one of us has been married before.  But I just learned today that they denied his visa and they wouldn't give us a reason why.  Does this mean I have to start all the way over from the beginning and file again? Will it take another 2 years?

Your husband is going to have to document the interview to the best of his memory, he really should have some idea of where extra probing was..

 

is this both your first marriage

any red flags such as excessive age gap? Culture differences? Less meetings?

No. He's only 1 year olds than me and we have the same religious beliefs.  We did get married the first time I went over there but I came back this year to see him again.  Each time I stayed 2 weeks

We were denied at Dakar. You'll need to wait to get the NOIR and see why you were denied. Then rebuttal the CO. If USCIS sides with you, you'll be granted another interview. Takes about another year and half to get back to Dakar for another one

He had is 1st interview Nov 2015. He's not here yet. Please check out my timeline. You will need to pay the medical again. Rebuttal meaning you'll need to respond to the COs allegations in regards to not granting the visa. I didn't get a lawyer because my NOIR came late in the mail. So, I didn't have enough time to hire one. You'll only get about 30 days to respond to the NOIR.

 

There's not much you can do but wait. However having a Congress person involved is helpful. Sometimes when I checked on the case NVC gave wrong info or didn't have any. My Congressperson was able to obtain more accurate info on the case status

I would imagine this is the answer.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
