So did you get the marriage certificate fixed and all other issues fixed. 2 times around that's uncommon and no way to say the outcome. I would seek an immigration attorney that is versed in your embassy right away. Why file again and get the same result.

If you're starting from scratch then it will be a year or more from filing the I-130 petition to interview, plus however long AP takes after the interview if you get stuck in it.


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".

March 29th 2018: Card being produced

April 4th 2018: Card mailed out

April 6th 2018: Card in hand. Has incorrect "resident since" date. Submitted service request on I-751 case (typographical error on permanent resident card) and an I-90 online.

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS. Also some time in May I sent a letter to Potomac telling them I want to withdraw my I-90 since CSC were handling it.

August 8th 2018: Card in production thanks to the direct involvement of Senator Sherrod Brown's team

August 13th 2018: Card mailed

August 15th 2018: Card in hand with correct date. :joy:

October 31st 2018: Potomac sends out a notice stating they have closed out my I-90 per my request. Yay for no duplicate card drama.

Seriously he suggest starting all over again. You didn't involve your senator or congressman after your 2nd interview and you had in your hands what they ask,. So now you are starting all over again. Yes like other poster said you are looking at a year at best.

Be prepared to go to the end of the line if this new "REFORM" gets through. Sorry there's no fast track.

Sorry but it sounds unlikely that you'll be at your child's birth unless you visit on a tourist visa then go back home

It might be tough seeing as you have two denied ir1's. You'd have to prove more than ample ties to your home country proving that you'd return. But if being with your wife for your child's birth is important it's worth the try. Perhaps her moving to you is another option.

Quick questions: is this is the second application but you had 2 interviews in the first application?

Was your I130 approved?

Do you have a marriage certificate now? You mentioned an Indian wedding earlier, does that come with a marriage certificate?

Ok that is clear.

This is what I think:

1. There is very little chance you will make it to the US in time for the birth. I'm sorry that is the reality.

2. You need to provide a lot of documentation regarding your relationship in your new application package. Don't leave it till your interview, submit pctures, documents, affidavits, everything you can lay your hands on.

3. You will most likely be denied a tourist visa with your history of a denied IR visa petition because you are an intending immigrant. For a B2 visa, you need to prove you have ties to your home country and aren't immigrating.

4. I am not sure your wife will want to travel to India for the birth for any number of reasons but you can consider it as an option. Also note if the baby is born in India then he/she will need some paperwork done in the US embassy before returning to the USA with a US Passport.

I hope this helps. All the best.
