Yesterday, July 21, my husband went to his interview in Accra, Ghana with all the documents that were requested. The consular took his documents and told him to come back later. When he came back, the lady asked him a couple of questions about how we met and told him she did not believe him and gave him a letter. She told him she was sending his case back to USCIS and they would be in touch with him. OMG! we were devastated. What does this mean and what happens next? I want him here so badly. We have been married almost 2 years. Please help me.

We do not know. All the consular said was that she did not believe him when asked how we met. I have cried all night and woke up with a terrible headache.


She also said she did not think our marriage was genuine.

There have been quite a few similar cases, the Consulate can not say no, they return it for review.

I'm so sorry to hear this for you. Make noise! Contact your senator. I've been reading so much about this embassy. We do not have our interview date yet, but something seems very, very wrong. When I read about other embassies, there are some minor complaints, but nothing like this one. You MUST contact your senator. Something must be done. People are apart for so long. Good luck to you both.

Thank you for your very nurturing comments. I have contacted my senator, I have an appointment with the local USCIS office and I have family and friends sending emails to the embassy in Ghana. I wish I knew how to to get a major complaint made. I refuse to stop making noise until my husband is here!

Has anyone here written to the Ambassador of Ghana? Have you written the White House? Time to make some noise and get the flashlight on the embassy NOW.

Just reached out someone I think has the ear of senior officials in Government. A New York congressman. Interesting to hear what his office would say about what is going on in ghana. It's a travesty!

Yes, I would like to hear what is going on in Ghana and I would also like to know who I can write to to complaint about what is happening. I am so devastated. I have put our names on every prayer list I can find. I can't understand how USCIS and NVC can approve him a visa and then a CO at the embassy can deny him a visa. How does that happen?

The first stage is a paperwork exercise, provide the correct information and it gets stamped and passed on.

The Consulate interview is the bit that counts.
