Please help... At interview my wife was asked for a joint sponsor other than myself. The consulate officer felt that although my current income was above the level required my lack of income in the past posed a problem. Has anyone had anything similar to them happen at the interview?

It happens. Now, you provide an I-864 from a qualified joint sponsor or no visa.

Not to me personally but I have read of cases on here, especially when the income was very new and maybe temporary (new job), or only a few dollars above the poverty line.

I just wanted some type of timeline from the time I submit those documents. I already have a joint sponsor lined up but I have no clue about how long it will take for this to be processed.

If that's what you wanted to know, it would have helped to ask that question. Usually, it takes about a month after submission to review, decide and issue the visa.

Usually in this situation a second interview is not necessary correct? instead they just ask for the passport to be sent and the issue the visa, if i understand correctly.

Well, usually they would keep the passport. If they didn't, that's not a good sign. But, yes, a second interview would not usually be needed if the only issue is a joint sponsor.

Ciudad Juarez seems to constantly change its mind on keeping the passport vs. giving it back in cases like this, so I wouldn't necessarily worry either way on that. As far as how long it will take, CDJ generally gives like an 8-10 day estimate on things like this as far as I know from when they receive the documents. But it can always take longer than that.


Long story short, we have a complicated case. We've been at this for nearly 5 years. You can read our story here. I highly recommend our attorney Laurel Scott, as well as attorneys Laura Fernandez and Lizz Cannon .

Filed I-130 via CSC in Feb 2008. Petition approved June 2008. Consular interview in Mexico, Oct 2008, visa denied, INA 212a6cii. We allege improper application of the law in this case.

2012, started over in Seoul: I-130 filed DCF on 7/2, I-130 approved 8/8, Medical at Yonsei Severance 11/20, IR1 appointment in November 2012.

CRBA filed 1-3-13 at Seoul for our daughter

And no, a new appointment shouldn't be necessary. When they requested further documentation, they should have given a sheet (I think it's still blue at CDJ?) that specifies what they need and what process to use in submitting it to them.

Thank you very much for the information. I have read your story and I wish the best to you and your family. I am just starting out with my wife and went to Juarez with a green light (so I thought) on everything and then this was handed down to us without even expecting it. The blue sheet is now sent via DHL so we are waiting for that sheet with the instructions. I hope that it is a fast process for my wife is young and alone now in Juarez as I had to return and continue working. Thank you so much for the information!

One more question... You seem to have extensive knowledge in this process and would like some clarification on this process. I am having trouble researching this process as I do not know what it would be classified as. Either; administrative review or "waiver", I highly doubt it is a waiver although I just want to be sure. It probably is a dumb question but I thought I had this process down now that I got hit with this unexpected turn of events I find that I have been second guessing myself quite a bit now. Thank you for any time taken to answer this question!

Your case is in limbo until you submit the affidavit from the joint sponsor and then it will be in administrative review. It's not a waiver process as they aren't considering waiving anything. The classification doesn't really matter. Just comply with the request and wait for them to contact you with further instructions.

Thank you very much for the information. Now one more question if you don't mind. My joint sponsor which is my father will file an I 864 as a joint sponsor. He makes more than enough money to meet the income levels required for the respective household size. He does file married filing jointly, should my mother fill out a I 864a?

You can do it either way. Mom fills out I-864a, or he submits his I-864 alone and includes W2s and paystubs or other employment documentation to verify which part of the joint income is his. We've done it both ways in our long history with immigration. :P
