K1 Processed in Dakar, K2 Process in Lagos?

Hello All --

My wife had her K1 visa processed and approved in Dakar. She arrived in the US in December 2009 and we were married in March 210010 here in the US. That part of the Visa Journey was very smooth.

We now want to begin the process of getting her daughter (age 8) to come to the US. Her daughter was marked as "join to follow" on the K1 paperwork , but her daughter is living in Nigeria. We have contacted both Dakar and Lagos to get information on how to proceed, but Lagos is telling us that her daughter needs to be interviewed in Dakar. I told them that doing so creates some hardships and it will be much easier to have the interview in Lagos. They indicated that processing can be done at another embassy, but only if that other embassy agrees (and it sounds to me that Lagos is not agreeing).

Any advice on what to do to get the interview in Lagos for my step-daughter?

I would call NVC or USCIS and see what they say. Lagos can be difficult but I don't see how they can expect a minor to travel to another country for an interview.

This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.
