CR1 Interview denial

I am curious how often do people get denied in their IR1/CR1 Visa interview. I am especially concerned about cases in Nigeria. As I peruse the forum it appears to me that folks get denied more often in the K1 visa category than IR1/CR1 visa category. I may be wrong. Can someone shed some light on this? Thanks greatly.

To find those actual statistics would be very hard. I am sure they are kept somewhere.

I wouldn't focus so much on others who are being denied. People are denied for many reasons that never will be posted on these pages. All you see is "we were denied". "The CO was an #######" and people get scared. But you don't know if the person had a secret family, wife, husband, child, lied, deception, police record. Not like people going to be upfront and tell that.

Focus on your case and if all was revealed and no skeletons in your closet you should be fine. Cuz for Lagos if there are secrets and you didn't tell it they will find out.

I once asked the the US CO on nairaland why are more K1 on AP resolved quicker than CR1/IR1,but the response i got wasn't precise.Yes,Dwheel is right,& true like the CO said this forum here cannot be relied on,for most here will not reveal all there is to their situation.A thing i know is,America immigration process is complex,though it seem simple from the outside.Every situation is unique & i believe not all who get denied are fraud.The denials usually suffice when COs discovers any "red flag" no matter how little it is,but you still find them approving others with similar "red flags" or even more serious ones.We're at their mercy.America being one of the great country on our planet,i believe can offer a better immigration process than what is currently offered.Why put the final decision of bona fide couples,family members in the hands of a man or a woman,who only does that within few minutes?Treating peoples life this way is rather unfair.Even if you must sift the wheat from chaff,there are better ways of doing this,which i'm convince the US government is capable of.The US consulate in lagos has in recent months been acting tough,denying & placing more & more marriage based visa under AP,a process & its timing i believe can be shorten if advance investigation can be done even before beneficiaries appear for their visa interview.

In my case,i'm still in wonderland,in constant state of bewilderment as to why I'm being investigated.Looking back,i sometimes asked if it was because my wife's family members & my parents didn't attend my marriage was the reason why i was placed under AP,which was one of the reasons why our petitions got sent back to the USCIS,or could it be bcos they did a background check & found out that I once submitted a DV-Lottery entry that was never selected for further processing,in which the agent wrongly included kids that are not mine?Could it because its over 2 years i saw my wife?

For each question asked above there are explanations.The truth is: I have nothing to hide,for every explanations i gave to each question is the truth.My only fear is how long will this AP take?Next year March it will be 3years i've been married,& till date i only spent a month & two weeks with my wife the two times she came visiting.I guess i wouldn't have been this eager to be with my wife if I was married before or I've been with some other woman,but each day i sleep & i wake its been a lonely one for me.In all Jehovah God,I have found comfort & strength.

I write all this for people to learn from & find comfort.

There are also a lot of failed K1 cases that marry and go back through the CR1 loop. Any second case is harder to deny than a first case. Many never say how their interview went good or bad. Once the interview is done they stop posting. Nigeria deserves it's tough status. People pull all sorts of games to get into the US. We were denied on our first interview by a CO that promised my now husband a visa if he would provide details of my work ( he correctly answered where I work and what type of work I do ) To this day he doesn't know the answer. The second interview ( also a K1 ) was very smooth other than the idiot CO asking if his father died ( between the 2 interviews) because he found out his son was marrying a white woman.

I know of a woman that after 2 failed interviews still believes in her relationship with a young man that is staying in the UK with his young "cousin" and still sends too much money. I know a couple that divorced each other in Nigeria, married separate USC's got visas, divorced those stepping stones after 2 years and remarried each other. Regional "conventions" that are held ( some never really exist ) for the sole purpose of inviting guest speakers from home. ( who rarely return ) The number of application denied because the Nigerian is still married to someone in Nigeria would surprise most people. Nigeria ranks high on the number of marriages that don't last past the 10 year green card mark. My husband has been offered money to divorce me and "help" relatives of his friend immigrate. I am sure Lagos would love to have a more exact way of finding the truth to a relationship but they confined to methods from 100 years ago and we suffer for that.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Please folks,i want to correct my statement above where I said: " the response i got wasn't precise".What i meant to say was that: 'the CO didn't give any detail as regard the timing for resolution of CR1/IR1 under AP compared to K1'.Thank you.

There is no way anyone can find out or know exactly how many people are being denied,placed under AP or how long it takes on the average to resolved visa cases sent back to the USCIS,or that are still under AP at the Consulate.
