My Fiance was put into AP. Can someone help?

Salaam(Peace) all,

My fiance and I really need your help.

I'm very upset and saddened right now.

Here's our story: My fiance and I met 3 years ago and applied for K1 visa late last year. We gave them all the evidence that they needed (pictures, forms, and what nots) and we finally got an interview date on Sept. 20th.

My fiance went to his interview today around 8:00am (his time) and it was a very short interview (maybe 5mins). In the end, they told him that he will likely become a charge of the state since I don't have a job and can't support him. (I never had a real job because I was still in school and when I finally did get a real job, after I was done with school, it only lasted for 2 months) My fiance told the man that my mom is cosponsoring with me since she makes way over the 125% poverty line but the man said the K1 visa doesn't allow any co-sponsorship and gave him a letter saying he was going into AP until we fix this.

Just when I thought we were so close to being together after being apart for 3 years this sets us back.

My questions are:

1. Was the man interviewing my fiancee telling the truth? (you can't have someone cosponsoring with your K1 visa)

2. Should I contact our congressman?

(In the meantime, (like always) I've been applying and searching for jobs, hopefully I will find one soon! )

Do you live with your mom? As in one household?

Because when my fince went for his interview which was on the 17th of this month, they had told him they dont accept co sponsors. But they still took my moms and my cousins I-134's.im assuming they accepted it..im not working either.but its because my dad does dialysis and im the one taking him...

My fiance didnt get a decision yet becuz he had forgotten my I-134 form at home by accident.but the Consular just told him to submit the form and wait cause he cannot process his papers without it.

So they took his paperworks? Even your moms I-134?

I had 2 co sponsors.my moms and my cousins.we live in one household. Maybe u should try finding another sponsor within ur household?

Yes, me and my mom live in one household and they kept our paperwork and said that they weren't sending it back to USCIS which is good. But it was filed under section 221g. Maybe in the morning I should call the embassy to see if we can do that.

From some of the stories I have read, the reason your fiance is on AP has more to do with the country he is from. Some Embassies do allow cosponsors so you should look at your country specific portal to get a better outlook. Hopefully the AP won't last long. Good luck.

Sorry to hear ..... I'm not farmiliar with Pakistan so cant say for sure however, when I applied for my fiance in India I had a joint sponsor I was a full time student and did not work. My dad was the one that sponsored my fiance....That was not the issue at all...I think you should consult a lawyer...

Best of luck hope the guy from the interview was wrong and everything works out..

You both should keep you chins up! Why?

1- They kept your paperwork

2- You weren't denied

3- AP is mandatory for all males coming from Pakistan

I would, however, do a Congressional Inquiry because from everything I have read, Co-Sponsors ARE allowed.

Personally, I think your interview sounds like it went very well.

Prayers for you both!

Wouldn't NVC deny the petition before it got to interview, if the AOS was not sufficient?

Also, pardon my ignorance, but what is "AP"?, put in AP?

Its administrative processing.

I-864 co sponsor is allowed only For Immigrant Visas Is k-1 An immigrant Visa Or NonImmigrant?

K1 is immigrant visa sir.

Hey guys i just realized that maybe they didnt accept our cosponsor (Me and Aaisha) because in i-134 forms the item # 11 says i Intend or do not intend. aaishas mom checked the box "i Do not intend" MAYBE MAYBE this is the reason why they thought im likely to become a public charge.

and these were the forms we sent with packet 3.5 but realized this mistake after sending it.

Please put some input into this.

K-1 goes through AOS once they are already in the states, so you don't turn in any support paperwork until the interview.

And AP is for administrative processing - basically extra scrutiny beyond the interview before they decide whether or not to grant the visa.
