Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I am desperate! my husband visa was denied on January 23/2012. The interview was only 20 mins in the USA Embassy in Casablanca, Morocco. They ask him all kind of unfair questions, he bring pictures, conversations for 5 years, receipt of rent of the houses and apartments we rent there and they didnt give him a chance to show them nothing!He was treated really bad and my husband left the embassy feeling so depress and rejected. Yesterday I call USCIS they say I need to wait 120 days for them to answer me about their decision. I dont know what to do now? Some people say I need to re-apply all over again for him and others say I dont. Do I need a lawyer? Do I re-apply? Do I wait for ever? Please anyone answer me.This situation is taking a tool on me I am getting so depress I start to see a Psychiatrist and counseling and start to take medication too. Please help me !! :(

Deep breathing will get you through the moment. It is a bit late but your husband should write down EVERY detail of the day and send it to you. You need to read this at least 20 times no close that 30 minutes to the last time. Once you have done this make a list of 10 things he did wrong and 10 things he did right. Then write down your red flags and defects in your petition in the order you think they affected the outcome. By the time you have done this you will be a little calmer and have a good start at the data needed to know what to do next.


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

Yesterday I call USCIS they say I need to wait 120 days for them to answer me about their decision.

that's not really all of the process, alas.

the casefile will be sent back to NVC, who will send it back to uscis. Once it's there, it'll get reviewed. IF, after reviewing it, they find no cause for that denial at the IV unit, they will re-affirm the petition and it'll get sent on to the IV unit for another interview.

IF, they do find cause for denial, yer given ONE change to submit more information. You'll get a letter about this, and it'll contain very specific instructions for what they want, and what they want you to do. Regardless of what they ask for, do be prepared to submit all of that 'evidence pile' that he carried in on interview day. It wasn't added to the casefile THEN, so this will be your one shot to get it added to the casefile in the future.

IMO, 120 days is just a 'bullsh|t' answer - it could take anywhere from 120 days to 400 days, depending on queues. There are several queues in this process - and this process is new for your casefile, also...

Good Luck. Read a lot in the 221G and waivers forum here. You'll learn a lot, and you'll need to learn a lot prior to receiving 'that letter' from USCIS, so that you'll be prepared IF you're offered a chance to submit more evidence.

There are several people this has happened to in Casa.

They used to deny fiance visas, couples would get married, and then they'd approve the spousal visas. But, now the consulate is denying both fiance and spousal fiance more regularly it seems.

There is a lot of information in the MENA forum, especially from women who have had similar experiences in Casa.

Important red flags in Casa that need to be addressed prior to interview ---

- has husband been involved with any American women in the past?

- has he ever been petitioned for a visa to America before?

- is there a large age difference, with wife being much older?

- is there a language barrier - what language did your husband do the interview in?

- was there a short time between meeting, and getting engaged, and/or married?

- how many times did wife visit before marrying?

Those are some I can think of off the top of my head that they look at in Casa.

What are the "unfair" questions they asked, adn what about them made them unfair?

Also, re: getting depressed and desperate - the people going through this seem to do best when they are able to see the silver lining in the situation. Yes, the denial isn't what you were expecting, but it also gives you an opportunity to prepare more for your spouse's arrival to the US, potentially visit Morocco a few more times, etc. It's not the end of the world. Even though it's upsetting, you can get through it and remaining calm helps you get through it and get the work done that's needed to turn things around.

Maybe call your congressman and senator to help you.

Don't bother! :thumbs:

The Senator's office cannot persuade an agency to reach a favorable outcome.

No, but they can potentially provide support, be helpful at getting more information than you've gotten, etc. It doesn't always work or help, but it's worth a try.

Exactly It's worth TRY :thumbs: Adriene H No one said for them to persuade an agency to reach a favorable outcome. :bonk: Maybe they can offer some help
