My wife's visa was denied for reason of public charge during her interview on 2/25/19. CO stated I didn't make enough money to her. Also they gave back her passport, which was also very soul crushing because still even now my wife just doesn't believe we have a chance now, and I too am grasping at straws. After several frustrating hours of scouring the internet for a solution. I got my mother to sign a I-864 for joint support, and sent that to my wife, along with last 3 year IRS transcripts, 2 months of paycheck stubs, 2018 w2 (as she hasn't filed her taxes yet), passport bio page, and birth certificate, all of my mother's. All sent back to embassy through 2GO, (along with her passport, wasn't sure if that was necessary or not), per instructions from CO which they didn't give her specifics of what she needed to fix it just letter saying it's not permanent. It has currently been a week now and not a word heard from them. Also have an uncle who lives in Philippines and he's also trying to help as he can, but right now just hoping to get so additional help, or answers to try and get this all resolved as process has already been frustrating enough and now kind of feels like it's all over with. Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.

You've complied with evidence and now it is in the hands of the adjudicator. He/she will review your evidence and if it satisfies their concern then a visa would probably be issued. You need to give the embassy more time.

You are the 2nd that has been denied for that reason (that stopped by here), it use to be the embassy would issue a 221g and request you get a co-sponsor.   Last couple were denied and after some talking they finally did send an I-864 from a co-sponsor .. the visa was approved and she is in the USA now.

 

Good move on your part to get a co-sponsor and get everything to the embassy!  :thumbs:

 

Now to sit back and be patient  ... keep tabs on the CEAC website for activity with your case file.

Just giving an update, or rather lack there of, still nothing from embassy and it has been 4 weeks, since they have received our documents to get refusal resolved. I have called multiple times, even got an "escalation" to have a higher up look into the case so the lady told me, which was 2 weeks ago. Also emailed embassy again stating our ongoing frustrations and concerns over whether or not they have in fact received documents and her passport or if its lost. Currently am planning on returning to Manila next week to visit my wife for 2 weeks, and was hoping if you guys have any info on if possible I can visit embassy myself and get this stuff fixed while I'm there. Again appreciate all the help, thanks.

Ah .. she has her certificate already.   CFO will want to see the Immigrant Data Sheet, on the DO NOT OPEN envelope (do not detach) that will accompany the passport w/visa.   After that they will affix the CFO sticker in the passport.   No appt needed, just show up with the passport and the package.

 

Green card fee (ELIS) is paid online.
