What reason make us deny I-130?

17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Usually denied for not providing correct information or false information.    In your proof of relationship provide a good mix of items.

 

Are you actually trying to file a K3?  Those aren't usually approved.

Denial of the I-130? Not a whole lot so long as you provide all documents, respond to any RFEs on time, etc.

Examples:

  • Not providing a marriage certificate or all past divorce documents.
  • Not being actually legally married.
  • AWA crimes by the petitioner

As for being denied the visa later, there's all kinds of reasons that could happen.

Egypt is very difficult on the bona fide marriage requirement.

Are you Beneficiary or Petitioner?

Did the petitioner file the I-130 together with the fee payment, I-130A and all of the documents together to the correct location (lockbox)?  You should not send in additional documentation after you file the petition unless asked to.

Did the petitioner file a G-1145 in order to get notifications electronically?

Did the petitioner receive any NOAs or RFEs?  If it was filed and accepted in April the petitioner should have received a NOA1 shortly after receipt.

 

Please help us help you by filing out a timeline via your profile.

We put do many prove but I need make sure nothing wrong

in Egypt there are so many reasons you can be denied, normally USCIS will not deny unless they find there is an issue with the petition it then goes to NVC pay the fees submit evidence, then it goes to interview.

 

if CO believes there is not a bonafide marriage will denied under 221G could be sent back to NVC 

 

but there are red flags to over come as well.

 

Face time and lots of it, pictures with the beneficiary family in Egypt is important, if there is an age difference then A LOT of face time would be important not just a 6 month live together.

if there is no wedding party that would be seen as a red flag.

 

if you are more than a 15 year age gap look at it being very hard in Egypt to get approved, not impossibl but will be uphill battle more so if the women is considerable older than the man.

 

If there is a major communication problem, man in Egypt speaks very little to no English,.

Spent time together has more value than facetime. So more visit is better evidence.

And if embassy deny, yes it goes to NVC but than it is sent to the USCIS and the person might respond to the denial.

(Sorry for late edit)

 

reasons for denial for example: not enough spent time together

they get a package the same you send out to NVC gets scanned in and sent in digital file to each embassy where the interview will take place. NVC also sends a hard copy of all the papers.

 

It is likely in some embassy more so likely with high fraud counties they do their own investigation into the beneficiary.

 

I know that in Egypt is has become more and more common since you have a family registry that the men must go to register the wife and get a family registration certification that shows the past and present wife's some have even made home visits.

 

so it is possible they have more information then either USCIS or NVC have. 

 

 

take for example this one the CO had WAY more information about him then USCIS or NVC. and he was brutally caught in some shady business.
