Hi everyone 

My CR 1 visa interview was in February 2019. CO gave me two 221g. I sent additional docs. And passport one week ago. CEAC status was showing AP After receiving docs. refused. Today i got my passport back and 212(a) 4 refusal letter. My wife's income was low so we submitted form i 864 from joint sponsor. Joint sponsor is family friend and his income is more than $30k.

We r so sad now. What should we do now ?? Pls tell

In order for us to help we need to know what stated in the refusal letters and/or the 221g's.

In 1st 221g - photos,chat logs, hotel flight bookings, joint financial proofs etc etc

 

In 2nd 221 g - Signed Letter from joint sponsor explaining his relationship with petitioner and why he has agreed to sponsor beneficiary ?

 

In today's refusal letter - THE BENEFICIARY MUST PROVIDE MORE COMPELLING EVIDENCE THAT HE WILL NOT LIKELY BECOME A PUBLIC CHARGE IN US.

This means that your wife needs to improve her income  (get a second job or a better job), and/or you need a different joint sponsor.

 

Life in the States isn’t cheap, and you have to show you won’t become a financial burden on American taxpayers.

Yeah, sounds like your, or rather your sponsor's, financial situation is not cutting it. Your wife may need to either find a better paying job or find a cosponsor that makes more money. $30k is not a lot to sponsor someone especially if the cosponsor has a family of his/her own.

Once again, barely meeting the income threshold does NOT mean an automatic acceptance. The CO looks at the totality of the circumstances to make a decision. Other factors such: where you live, if you have a chronic medical conditions, ... are taken into account

Like others have said, the CO holds the final say whether they believe the income provided is substantial enough. Being near the minimum obviously doesn't satisfy them, or they did not like the relationship between your wife and the co-sponsor, or both.

 

Easiest thing is have your wife improve her financial situation. Mean why shouldn't she? Be easier on her and you in the long run.

That's your decision. But if you don't want to wait until next year, ask your cousin. Best of luck.

yes, get a co-sponsor with a high income. they dont just look at income but also what type of work your wife does and what work you do here. Someone with a degree and stable work overall looks better than someone who makes an hourly wage and doesnt have a long work history.
