Reasons for denial in Jaurez

I do not know for sure, but I would think the most common reason would be for a previous illegal entry or overstay in the US. After that, I suppose it could be the CO doesn't believe there is a real relationship. I have read about people getting denied or hung up for a long time because they admitted to drug use at the medical.

I have seen way more happy couples with approvals than not, so try not to be so nervous and worried. Good luck! :)

haha thanks! he's never been to the US illegally .. in fact he's never been to the US! I figured that'd be the biggest one.. aside from a criminal record, which he doesn't have either.

I think we'll be ok .. just thought I'd ask .. you know to try and calm our nerves haha

make sure income is above $20K, they dont want immigrant to be a burden, check requirements for income or assets

A positive TB test and HIV/AIDS would result in a denial (I remember reading this on a gov't website). I haven't read anything about Juarez though...

I believe that they took the HIV/Aids off the list awhile ago.

As for TB, it is my understanding that if she came out positive, she would only have to prove that she has started treatment, which takes 6 months. That you could still pass, POE, just not AOS until cleared up.

I think though, to ease your fears, it really comes down to ... does this complete stranger - the CO - believe you, have you provided enough evidence that the relationship is undeniable.

As for criminal record or previous overstay ... he wouldve been denied already if this was the case.

Not so. They go to the interview, where they will be denied for the previous overstay. Then, they can try and file the I-601 waiver, if the CO says they are eligible to go that route.

True for class B inactive (latent) TB. Not true for class A active TB. Someone with a class A infection is contagious.
