Quick Update

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to quickly update you guys on what has been going on. As I mentioned in my last post, we were denied a second time at our IR1 interview. As most suggested, I contacted an attorney who I was refereed to by a friend (let me tell you, it is not easy finding a decent attorney these days). Luckily he offered me a free consultation over the phone, and after interrogating me for about an hour he suggested I reached out to the State Senator, so that they can contact the USCIS on my behalf. He gave me their number and I called the next day. The lady on the phone was very nice and seemed to sympathize with me, which kinda gave me a bit of hope- something I've been lacking lately. However, when I mentioned the section we where denied on, she mentioned it might be complicated since my husband could of been banned from entering the US. I faxed her several documents the next day and a release form. I also sent her a memo stating that we had been denied because according to them we presented 'false material evidence', and I think it is outrageous that they deny us under misrepresentation, since ALL of our documents and evidence was real. So now I am just waiting...

I must say I am heartbroken and I go through my depressed and sad moments. I just never in a million years could of seen this coming. You know the saying "there is light at the end of the tunnel"?... The tunnel I am walking in is never ending, and the rays of light are just not peeking through. There is not one day when I don't think about this, about whats to happen. I even wonder, what have I done to deserve this?

But the experience has made me a stronger person as well. The little problems I used to complain about before, are no longer problems.I cherish every positive thing I have in my life, specially my loved ones. And I try and make the most out my husbands and my relationship, even though we are far away. I have a very interesting experience happen to me the other day, the old me would of been crying thinking it was the end of the world. Instead, the new me brushed it off her shoulders, kept her head up and moved on.
