I-129f petition DENIED

35 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Hope everyone is well I need advise if I should or not appeal my case on Nov 8 I received the email stating that our application was denied I received the letter today stating the reason for the denial that not enough evidence was submitted for intent of marriage. We hired a lawyer to help us with the process in which I feel right now like she was useless. Do not know what to do. And for what it seem its better looking in here for advise rather than going to a lawyer. To appeal its 630.00 or should I just redo the K1 visa or get married. The wait is a major factor just want to be together asap.

hope to get some response

Thanks,

Did you both send in signed statements that you would get married within 90 days? Up to you whether you go the K-1 route again or the I-130 route, but I would not appeal nor would I use your lawyer. Might want to just do the I-130 as that will show you really did have the intent to get married, plus your spouse would get a GC upon entering the US rather than having to spend the $1070 to file for adjustment of status (AOS) after getting married.

Good luck,

Dave

No they sent my lawyer RFE and that the out come after sumitting

Laywers are downright terrible when it comes to K1 or Marriage visas. Don't use one again. Your lawyer didn't send something he should have known to send,

I'm alittle confused here. Are you saying you filed a simple 129-F and you included separate letters of intent with signed signatures to marry within 90 of entry and denied for that?

The 129-F does not ask for other details such as arrangements. Whats missing here? If in fact you were denied a K-1 NOA1 I would get ahold of USCIS and make a INFOPASS Appointment if that's the case.

If in fact the denial reads this: I would make a INFOPASS Appointment. Only the letters of intent are needed. Somethings missing here somewhere..

Did you guys also send a bunch of evidence of the relationship - the "why" you want to get married part?

If one of you had a prior marriage and some documentation for the marriage or the divorce was missing, they might be questioning whether you're legally able to get married.


April 27, 2016: I-751 mailed

May 2: I-751 received

May ??? NOA1

May 12: Check cashed

May 31: Biometrics appointment scheduled

An attorney is a waste of time and money!

this site is all you need, IF you will file your K-1 as the guides here show.

THEN, when you are ready to re-file, read your file over word for word, page by page, at least 5 times! Cover letter, with table of contents, letters of intent to marry,.,.,.etc.,.,..,.,FOLLOW the guides on this site!

Ask questions if you are not sure, people here will help you prepare your own K-1.,...,.,.,.,,please do not do CR-1.,,..,.,that is 12-16 months, K-1 is 4-6.,.,.sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less!

The first thing I would do is ask the lawyer to show me the hard copy of the RFE and make sure that they responded appropriately. It seems like every lawyer horror story involves them not responding to an RFE appropriately (or at all). It's unbelievable and inexcusable, really.

4-6 months from start to finish for a K-1 is only an accurate estimate for the best-case scenario of going to CSC and the rest of the process going very smoothly. The OP would be at TSC, so this would not be the case for him/her.

... yes. this.... there seems to be no clear reason for the denial if you both sent a letter of intent. You don't have to supply details of marriage arrangements etc. In view of the delays in the process how could anyone accurately make those decisions prior to approval. If you both completed letters of intent, then it is something else. Best to find out what it is before taking the next step.


Mar 2011 - After 5mths denied for lost docs - Attempts to follow up failed. Mar 18 2012 - I-129F sent - No sign of NOA1 but they have banked the check...Jul 24 - Update - USCIS has located our file

I know this a little off topic, but I heard of there being a list of banned lawyers, being lawyers that have been excluded from representing or assisting with the immigration process here in the US, I personally am not using a lawyer so haven't searched for the list but I think its something well worth looking into for people who intend on using a lawyer. I personally feel there is no need for one as long as you both have clean records meet the requirements and can gather the information, it just takes time to read all the instructions on all the forms.

All the same I wish everyone the best of luck.....
