Ok So I just fed exed my rebuttal for my husbands visa denial in Ghana back in December, I am on pins and needles. I am so nervous,I just wanted to share tho. I am hoping for a quick response from Vermont. I must say my lawyer Marc Ellis did an execllent job in helping me put the rebuttal evidence package together. I barely slept last night, it is like my Visa Journey is a part time no full time job. I am nervous!!! I pray my case gets reafirmed and sent back to Ghana. I know the wait there sucks, but I have hope this time for once. Also please don't forget to join our facebook page in hopes to get the attention of the BS we all have had to go through with the US Embassy in Ghana. Please pray for me and my husband, it has been a long journey.

If you don't mind me asking, what is the reason they gave for denying you? My husband's K1 Visa was denied back in March and we also used Marc Ellis to try and overturn the denial at the consulate, but it didn't work. We ended up getting married and filing and I-130 petition for a CR-1 visa. I just thought that IR-1/CR-1 visas are rarely denied.

Yes I am curious also for the reason they gave for denial... My now husbands (at the time was fiance) visa was denied in March and I want to make sure I do not make any mistakes on his visa as my husband! We all need all the help we can get. Our denial reason was not enough proof of ongoing relationship (guess I underestimated what they would need) I then later found this website and now know a little more so I am hoping things go better this time around!
