Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Ecuador

Hi - wanted to let everyone know that my husband got his visa yesterday!!! We are very excited as it has been a long and trying road. He was denied the visa at first, after the interview, because they said that we needed another signature on the affidavit of support from our co sponser. The co sponser is my mother and she owns a business with my father. They wanted his signature - but this was not possible because my dad is against my relationship and doesnt even know that we are married. Anyway, they were also really rude and condescending to him at the interview. They did not ask him too many questions and they told him that he could not ask questions. However, they did go through every single piece of evidence that he brought concerning our relationship.

After they denied the visa they gave him a paper that told him to submit such and such documents and the missing signature & that they would then give him the visa. I had a lawyer dealing with all this, and so the lawyer wrote a cover letter explaining that my mother makes well above the required amount to sponser someone, and that as I am now fully employed, that I do too. The lawyer also submitted more information about my job (Im a teacher) so they submitted my pay schedule etc etc. Apparently this was enough and my husband recieved a letter that says he has until March to come to the US. We are uber excited!

Thanks everyone on VJ for all of your help and knowledge.

Please let me know if anyone is going through this in Ecuador and you have specific questions.
