I was wondering if someone could give me some suggestions on how to resolve this problem. On Oct 19, 2007. My husband had his intervew for a CR1 visa at Lagos, Nigeria. He was give a pink letter stating that our relationship was established for immigration purposes only. I've been calling USCIS and NVC weekly and that have not received our case yet. The embassy of Nigeria stated that they sent the case was sent to NVC on Nov. 20, 2007 with the recommendation that it be revoked. Any suggestions are welcomed.

No. The letter just says that my husband faild to produce nay evidence of a valid relationship to the petitioner. My husband said that in interview only requested pictures and e-mails. She refused to look at the insurance policys (car and medical in both our names) and phone bills that he took along to the interview.

I would suggest calling your senator and asking for some help.


Life's just a crazy ride on a run away train

So make it count, hold on tight find a way to make it right

You only get one trip

So make it good, make it last 'cause it all flies by so fast

You only get one trip

From what ive seen on past posts, the trend seems to be correct. You have to present exactly what they ask for. However, I would think that they would give you time to rectify the situation and bring in the necessary docs.....seems a bit strange.....

Have you tried professional legal advise...sounds like your case may need it.....

It is not strange at all. It happens far, far too frequently. The CO makes a decision based on assumption and ignores or doesn't even look at the evidence presented. Doesn't matter what evidence it is. Doesn't allow you to present evidence and sometimes doesn't even tell you there is a question about the relationship. It is not right and it is not following the law, but they do it all the same.

The OP should IMMEDIATELY contact their Senator/Congressman and ask for help to find out where their petition is and help to get this resolved. Once it gets to NVC, they just log it and send it back to the Service Center. Also ask them the Congressman to find out what reasons the CO is alledgedly using to support their fraud accusation. Since the interview was for CR1, you will also want to find out where is the I-130. If it is not approved yet, they will probably pull it back and review your returned case when they get to the I-130. They will likely send you a Notice of Intent to Deny based on the accusations of the CO that yours is a fraud marriage.

You will need to respond to this with evidence that is not the case. Enlist your Congress Rep help now and also when you get the NOID. The more detail you can get as to what they are basing their accusations on so you can address it in your response the better. But even if you can't get more detail, then just present your case and evidence to support that yours is a true marriage and not for immigration and refute the false accusations against you. Evidence should include copies of your phone/IM logs/bills, pictures, insurance, letters from friends and family on both sides, etc. etc. etc. even if you already provided it to them before, send it again and more.

You can overcome this, but unfortunately it can take much extra time where you and your husband are left separated. I'm sorry this has happened to your family. But keep fighting and you will win. If you need more help there is a group dedicated to people in this situation that is available by invitation. Send me a PM if you are interested to know more.
