Hello everybody. im really on fire now and i need all possible earnest ideas. My wife was just deniesd a visa under sec 221g of the INA. Me and my wife got married in accordance with the customs and traditions of our country ghana. i was not in ghana when the marriage was conducted. when she went to the interview she was asked for wedding pictures and she said that we didnt have any since our marriage was customary marriage and it was done by proxy. she was asked when was the last time she saw me and she said over two years but we have maintained positive contact. truly i have not seen my wife since we got married because im in the U.s navy and i have been engaged with military duties . she said the consular issued her a paper stating that she has been denied the visa and i can file an appeal if i want. what should i do

**** Moving from K3 to CR-1 visa forum as the K3 is obsolete***

Proxy marriages are only recognised for US immigration if the marriage was consumated afterwards, ie if you were physically together after marriage. Thus, the denial was correct. All you can do is go meet with your wife (in a third country if necessary), then re-file.
