Morocco 221g Whats next!?!

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi.

My fiance and I filled in November 2011 and we were approved by USCIS in April and his interview was on July 9 2012. During his interview he was given the 221g and told that his case was being sent to USCIS. So after reading we played the waiting game. I got impatient and at the end of August 2012 I email the US consulate in Casa asking when exactly I am supposed to hear from the USCIS and to ask exactly what was going on. They told me I should hear from USCIS after several weeks and they gave me a number to call USCIS if I needed a case up date. When I came back to the US I called immediately this was September 24. The recording that was supposed to inform me about my case said that they sent me a..... (I don't remember the name now) on July 17. Well its September now and I have received nothing in the mail so I connected to speak with someone and she informed me that noooo nothing was sent and she wouldn't know why the recording would say something was. She then told me that the USCIS has not received any paperwork but then started saying something about 120 days and i should hear something. She was really all over the place and was not speaking clearly with me.

SOOO to get to the point! Can someone who was denied please explain to me the next part of the process and who I can contact to actually find out where our paperwork is I feel like I am being given the run around!

Thank you so much in advance!

Sorry for the incorrect grammar.

Since you application was for a K1..it will expire, and probably already has. K1 are the one applications that do expire. You may or maynot receive a notice from USCIS stating such, some have gotten them some have not. Trying to find out WHY they sent it back could be a chore...usually from the interview and the questions asked between you and your fiance you should be able to know what was answered incorrectly (assuming questions where). You can refile another K1 application, but you have to make sure the first is expired and closed...then free to refile again that application or marry and file for a CR1, totally up to you as a couple.

Sorry your petition was sent back...Casa is tough.

Hope this helps.

Thank you everyone for your replies.

I have read that 4 months after your approval from USCIS is when the petition expires. I was just wondering if someone could confirm this. And if someone could advice me on receive to wait until I receive something(anything) from USCIS or if I should just go fourth with a new petition.

I also had this happen when my fiance recieved the 221g for his k-1 visa, after I got the senators office involved they informed them that there really isn't a review once it arrives back to USCIS but thats what they tell you. Not right, but it is what it is. We waited almost a year for that review before we were told there wouldn't be one. You can either reapply for your fiance visa or go ahead and get married in Morocco. Either way you still need to reapply and prove your relationship.

Can we reapply right away or do we need to wait for something. I was just informed that our paperwork was sent back October 5. I am very confused because it sounds likes 50% of ppl reapplied because they didnt hear anything and the other 50% were reaffirmed. We were actually getting ready to reapply because everyone was saying they didnt have our paper work but i finally got someone to give me the diplomatic pouch number and it had just been sent three months after my fiance was denied

It is a grey area and CASA likes it that way I think....

dont know about 50% of what people you are posting about but

As far as our situation and most journeys of late....

221 (g) were given and no other answer, no contact from USCIS until a letter indicating since nothing further was done with the case they will close it. This was our situation, and others on here that decided to file a IR1/CR1 Visa.

Personally, We married and filed a spousal visa. Went over with my SO, what were the exact questions asked and what were his answers in the K1 interview. Basically trying to figure out what did not go right with his interview or what might have been the RED FLAGS, because just marrying and reapplying will not prove a bona fide relationship in the CO's mind.

Stay on VJ and read PAST posts of what others have gone through to prove their relationship is real and how they have gotten through this hard emotional time.

It will help u.

Good Luck
