Immigration issue

Recommended Posts

My name is Ahmed and i am a green card holder
from Morocco
I traveled to my country Morocco to visit my mother.She is an old mother and she has a chronic disease.I had stayed longer than six months due to harsh circumstances beyond my control ;taking care of my mother.
In 2017, with the advice of one of my friends, I decided to resort to the Consulate of America in my country so as to give me a re-enter visa
I took a date and went with the documents they had requested from me and among these documents the doctor gave me a report stating that I was the one who was caring for my mother.
The consulate refused my request.
So please would you mind help me  to get back my right to return to US.

When did you leave the US

 

Sounds like you applied for a SB1 Returning Residents Visa.

 

What have you done to maintain ties to the US?

I mean, only US citizens have an actual "right" to be in the US.

If you stayed abroad for too long and/or consulate decided that your reason to stay abroad wasn't good enough then they have a right to to refuse your return visa.

Exactly how long have you been out of the US?  Considering a friend told you about visiting in the consulate in 2017 after being abroad for more than 6 months already , sounds like you've been in Morocco for roughly 2 years now?  Presumably you set up residence in Morocco at that time (housing/working to support yourself and pay you and your mother's bills)?

What evidence did you bring other than the doctor letter?  Normally a good idea is to also have medical reports on diagnosis and prognosis of your mother's illness, proof that you have maintained US ties while away (ie. lease on US apartment, proof of filing tax returns, etc.).

 

Is your immediate family (ie. spouse/children) still in the US, or did they travel back to Morocco with you?

 

As far as I know, a SB-1 cannot be appealed, however if you have a qualifying relative they can always file a i-130 for you to begin the GC process.  There are those in the past on VJ who have taken the (slim) chance at POE with their greencard/evidence and see if the officer will admit them into the US under their discretion...only heard of 1 person on VJ succeeding with this, however they'd been outside of the US just over one year and was able to show proof of US ties at the border as well as strong evidence of why their stay abroad was out of their control. 

 

I would presume with the refused SB-1 visa on file, and the amount of time spent out already, would make that option much more difficult for you.
