Possible denials - curious

I'm just a little curious what a possible denial could be other than the consulate not believing in a real and genuine relationship?

Just a little curious :) we recently filed our i129f so we are far from being approved but this comes to my mind sometimes!

Some consulates seem to deny if the petitioner doesn't make enough money and doesn't have a sponsor. That's the most obvious that comes to mind.

I-129 denial reasons

failure to prove meeting in the two years prior to filing, some people actually file without ever having met in person.

sending the form with no supporting evidence.

not being free to marry when the petition was filed.

failure to prove citizenship

interview denial reasons:

crime of moral turpitude

past drug use

woman is pregnant with some else's baby. Yes this has happened!

not sharing a common language, inability to communicate with each other

relationship is outside the customs and standards of the immigrant's country

immigrant is found to have a disease which bars entry and fails to get treatment.

Previous illegal entry into the USA and failure to get a waiver.

Adam Walsh Act violation of the petitioner.

If I keep thinking, there's tons more reasons I've seen over the years.

Am I a bad person for thinking that if this was in a thread on VJ that I'd want to read it?!

lol I'm sure it has been on the VJ forum before. VJ has certainly been around long enough for it to have been. Although I came across it on an entirely different forum, where the embassy withheld issuing a K-1 visa until they informed the petitioner and asked him what he wanted with that knowledge. Of course he wanted the whole thing ended. In another such case the embassy was not aware the petitioner had gotten his fiancee pregnant on a return visit after the petition was filed. As they had no evidence of the visit in the evidence the woman brought, but the medical confirmed her as very recently pregnant. Its good to know the embassy is looking out for our interests

Everyone is always worried before hand. I'd look for reviews about your embassy and what others have gone through. You should be able to get a list of what to bring right from the embassy in your country. While there are denials they are not really that common. If you have a valid relationship, and both parties meet the qualifications, then its almost always pretty easy. Its people who try to cheat or game the system that are the ones who often find themselves getting denied.

Oh thought of another denial reason, the couple is already married to each other. They either can't wait and get married after filing, or thought the K-1 was faster then the CR-1 so they'd sneak through using it. Or they have a marriage ceremony without the marriage certificate and the embassy finds out about it.

Indeed. There were few stories about got some woman pregnant by other man. It was hot topic a few years back.

Another possibility is you don't pass the medical exam- I've read a few stories where people had to stay in their country and receive TB treatment for a couple months after an X-ray came back positive for TB (even if they didn't feel sick). If you even admit to past drug use, you get a 1 year ban. If you have "gang related" tattoos, you get a permanent ban with no waiver available.

Hah,

We know about the """FIASCO""" at St. Luke's Medical.,.,.,,.called a "suspicious" X-Ray, it is just a scam.,.,.,.as "I know for a fact that the doctors are told on certain weeks, to find X-rays, "suspicious" and for what reason, I have no idea. I cannot reveal my source as it is a "visa company" very familiar with there tactics.

My wife was caught up in this.,.,.,BUT the week before her medical, I sent her to the largest, most competent X-ray clinic in Cebu city for a chest X-ray.,,..,.,.,IT WAS TOTALLY CLEAR.,.,.,.,.,.and one week later the last of 3 doctors viewing her film, ruled suspicious, causing us nearly 3 months, delay.,.,.,.,.,.and OF COURSE.,.,the sputum specimen came back totally normal!!!

One thing I will say, is they know when you have been delayed by this ""FIASCO"".,.,.,and her interview was scheduled at her convenience and her interview was "show me some pictures!!!

Great people, but such a corrupt government.,.,.no one nicer than the Filipino people!.

Another reason I've seen is where the petitioner is a legal resident of the beneficiary's country and is looking to move back to the US with them, but they failed to establish proper proof of re-establishing domicile in the US. I read a thread on British Expats about that once.


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".
