|Denial at Final Interview for $$$ Even Though It Meet Guidelines
Read 1258 Times
I just got the worst news I could have ever heard... My wife was scheduled for her embassy interview March 30, 2016 in Tbilisi, Georgia. She arrived on time and prepared. The consular officer asked some questions and then told her that my income is not enough to qualify her for the CR1 visa. She was denied because she was at risk to become a 212(a)(40(A) Public Charge, ie freeloader... I pllanned and obtained a job that does meet and even exceeds the minimum income requirement for a family of 5. I sent the following letter in responce:
Greetings U.S. Embassy Georgia,
I wanted to let you know that I will be calling you on March 31, 2016 at
08:30 AM to ask some questions of the Consular Officer who interviewed my
wife, Maggie XXXXXXX, on March 30, 2016 for an Immigrant Visa.
Specifically, I would like to know how a determination of 212(a)(40(A)
Public Charge was determined when proof of income in excess of both the
2015 and 2016 HHS Poverty Guidelines for Affidavit of Support were
provided. After living in the Republic of Georgia for 16 months as a
volunteer English teacher working for Teach and Learn with Georgia I
returned to the United States on July 22, 2015 to secure employment
sufficient to sponsor my family to immigrate to America with me. I was
hired at XYZ Corporation permanently on August 30,
2015. I negotiated my salary specifically to meet the 2015 HHS Poverty
Guidelines for Affidavit of Support for a family of 5 at 125% of HHS
Poverty Guidelines which is $35,550. My negotiated salary is 36,000
annually proven by a letter from the Human Resources Manager Keith XXXX
of XYZ Corporation approved by Harry ZZZ who is the
President and CEO XYZ Corporation. This amount was
arrived at to be in excess of the minimum annual salary required for
approval. According to my pay stubs submitted to the National Visa Center
my earnings are calculated by dividing $36,000.00 by 2080 (52x40) hours
worked annually or $17.31 per hour at 40 hours per week. The Visa Refusal
Sheet provided to my wife specifically requests a joint sponsor. I am
willing as is XYZ Corporation to provide any information
you may need to substantiate my income including pay stubs, or human
resources payroll records. Please feel free to contact either Keith ZZZZ
or Harry ZZZZ with any need you may have. Please let me know if I can
provide any additional information to prove my income to you.
Help!!!! What do I do now!!! I have nobody who would open their bank accounts to the government if one of us fell on hard times. Can I fight this based on what I showed them? Is their a supervisor?
|Contacted NVC if they received my I-130 petition, and the operator told me to call back in mid-May if they received it. I need advice, please

Hello everyone! On March 16th, I received an email from the USCIS that my petition was approved and is routed to the USCIS Nebraska Service Center. The email also mentioned that they sent the Receipt notice (Form I-797) and instructed me to wait for 7-10 days to receive Form I-797. They also provide my Receipt Number LIN##########. Now, here is my situation where I need help. I live with my wife in Tbilisi, Georgia, so based on standard US and Georgian mailing times, I imaged that it may take from 1 month to 2 months to receive this letter. This is the NOA1, correct?
Next, I decided to call NVC today (March 30th) to find out if they received the petition or not. I got in touch with the representative and provided my Receipt Number LIN##########. He said that my petition is not in the system and asked me when I received the email. When I told him I received the email on March 16th, he recommended me to call back in the middle of May. In the middle of May?!?!?!
I read the NVC process here on VisaJourney, and I'm a little confused about it. According to the guide, it says that I should wait for three weeks after I received my Form I-797 (NOA1) to start calling NVC. Should I await for the From I-797 to arrive in my mail to start contacting NVC (It might take anywhere from 1 month to 2 months to receive the letter). Should I wait for another week (it has been two weeks since I received the email) to contact NVC again if they received my petition?
Thank you and have a nice day!
|when will SSN card arrive (split topic)
Read 194 Times
I came to the US two weeks ago, via Chicago, the process was weird, nobody seemed to quite know what they were supposed to do, they grilled my wife (US Citizen) for about an hour as to why she was out of the country for 4 years, but for me I just went through passport control, confirmed entry for my dogs, scanned my luggage, then handed over my yellow envelope and no interview at all.
I have been here now 2 weeks, its been 3 weeks since I paid the $165 green card fee, when should I expect to get my SSN? I have a job interview on Wednesday and the company told me I am their #1 candidate given my level of experience. I can't open a bank account without the SSN, so can they just give me a cheque and I cash it for the first month and they backdate the taxes when i get my SSN?
