Hello Everyone,

My pregnant wife and two sons are in nigeria and my wife attended interview on June 2011 and was put on administrative processing since then.I travelled to Nigeria for her interview and thats how we ended up expecting our third child.I really don't know where to start because I am very down and the whole thing is a little complicated.I have been married before,divorced first week of december 2006 and had a church wedding in june 2007,court wedding in sept 2008.How come? Well I travelled during my divorce period,met her and we became intimate,came back and received a call from her in february 2007 that she was pregnant.I was shocked,confused,emotional,but happy that I was going to have a kid.I asked her what she wanted to do and she was more confused because we are both from strong catholic families.My mother was disgusted with me about my divorce and wasn't ready to hear about the pregnancy.She told me in strong terms that she can't stand me having a child out of wedlock,period.I then began preparing for a church wedding after talking to her.The wedding took place on last week of june 2007 and my beautiful son arrived a month later in late august 2007.My first marriage lasted for six years with not biological kid.

I cannot tell you how distraught I am because part of this whole 221g administrative processing drama is my fault.I failed to control myself during my travel and I also failed to tell her that I was going through divorce and actually discussed it a week before our church wedding.How can I have my family with me here in the united states? I can't explain how difficult it is to concentrate on two full time jobs when my boys and my pregnant wife are going through a lot in Nigeria.Of my two sons,the first one was filed jointly with my wife which means that he too is under 221g administrative processing with my wife.My second son has his us passport and birth certificate processed and ready to travel but my wife and I want him to wait so they can travel together because I cannot cope with having him without his mother.I have to give up one job in order to have him here with me and that is tough because it will affect my financially.

Thank you for taking time to read this and hope that I will get some helpful tips on how to get my wife and boys here as fast as possible and overcome this hurdle.I am planing to contact an attorney and my congressman but my family and friends think that I worry too much and want me to be more patient.Yes,I worry too much but am I over reacting?

Thanks in anticipation for your help and for sorry for putting you through this.

AP for Nigerians has increased in the last year because of the actions of a few stupid people. There isn't a lot that you can do to speed it along. When was the last time you emailed the embassy and asked for status? Usually AP lasts less than 6 months especially for woman. So the end should be soon.


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

NigeriaorBust,

Thanks for your response.I sent email twice to us embassy in lagos and they replied that the case is still under administrative proceeding.I also called Dos a few days ago asking why my four year old son was put on AP and the lady informed me that my sons case is ok but they cannot do anything about his case until his mother clears AP since they were filed jointly.This frustrating ordeal will be six months old in december and I am praying that somebody will realise that those kids need their dad.

I appreciate your contribution,thanks and God Bless!

Below is the last correspondence I got from them:

[Thanks for your email.Unfortunately,your case remains under AP.Once we have completed our work,we will contact you and schedule a return appointment at the consulate]

Quick question, why does your 4 year old need a visa, does he not have claims to US citizenship through you as your other son?

Sorry for the Ap -sadly not much you can do. I am sorry for your plight

Good luck

First son was born while he was an LPR and must enter the US on a valid visa before he can have claim to USC.

I'm sure its just slow because they are verifying and rechecking to make sure you are really divorced. And probably being mean making you suffer so long and waiting. Sorry for that. But I don't see how you can be denied having kids and all. Keep your head up.
