What to do if K1 visa is denied?

20 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Our K1 visa was denied for my Filipina fiance. What are our options?

The denial was most probably because my fiance is 40 and I'm 70.

If a K1 visa is denied, does that mean a K3 petition after that will automatically be denied?

We saw that an appeal can be filed within 33 days after the denial. Who should file an appeal, my Filipina fiance or me the petitioner?

Thanks to anyone who replies.

Call your senator immediately and get him involved. First thing is to find out why she was denied. Try and keep your petition at USEM as if it's sent back to the USCIS you may as well start over.

I'm just guessing you/she was denied do to lack of proof of a bona fide relationship. Large age gap isn't the only reason. LOTS are approved with larger age gaps than yours.

Been there done that!

I am sure they would have to give a more substantial reason than your age difference for denial. Age difference shouldn't be a cause for denial.

If it is a lack of evidence your fiancee should have been given a notice defining the reason for denial and an opportunity to rectify this.

Any initial denial is accompanied by something in writing. She was given a paper with an explanation. What does it say.

Nobody is denied for an age difference but the age difference may be a major part of why some are denied for failing to show a bona fide relationship.

You next steps will be determined by what that paper says, so it is critical you get a copy of it.

As pushbrk suggested, you will need to know exactly what was said on the paper she was given. Then contact your Senator's office and perhaps a good immigration lawyer in PI. It's essential you keep your petition in the PI and not let them send it back to the US where it is bound to get lost in a black hole.

Go visit the PI forum here and ask around there.

good luck to you both

Get a detailed explanation why you were denied, then file an appeal asap. I doubt age difference was the reason.

Don't give up hope, Philippine woman are widely known as the most beautiful woman in the world, and a pleasure to be around....

This has nothing to do with why the OP's petition was denied, and has no place in this thread.

To the OP:

I hope that you can keep the case with the Embassy in PI, and resolve this. I've not heard of anyone here on VJ being denied a visa in PI because of age difference. It probably has the highest ratio of age differences from any of the Embassies. A 30 year age difference at age 40/70 is probably less diverse than an age diffence of say 20/50.

All the best!

Your petition has been disapproved with some other documents needed reason I definitely dont believe it is an AGE ISSUE. They never looked at the age gap, they are more on the documents you sent. Re check the letter you received, there must be something you missed.

Good Luck, you can always re apply :)

Thanks to all for your encouragement and suggestions.

As the American I will appeal my petition ASAP.

What we didn't understand is how to keep the case in the PI as some suggested.

Salamat

Call your Senator immediately. Google his name for contact or look in your telephone book. When my fiancee was denied my senator jumped in and kept the petition in Manila until I submitted all the additional evidence I had. Unfortunately it wasn't enuf.
