Dcf under exceptional circumstances denied

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So my USC husband recieved a new job employment in the us. He has been residing in Trinidad with me and our two adorable kids. We emailed the immigrant Visa unit asking to file at our local consulate under exceptional  circumstances  but was denied. I guess we will have to start filing our petition at the lockbox in chicago

Generally don't really have to do "exceptional circumstances" as long as you qualify for DCF, but DCF has been getting shut down in some countries, so that might also be why it was denied as it isn't even available anymore.

So,  your USC husband can come and establish residency here and apply for your CR1 spouse visa

if the children are his ,  make sure they have their USC and US passports to make that part easier (before he leaves)

Then you just wait like the rest of us for the process

Should be a breeze - lots of evidence of a bona fide marriage if you have been living together for some time.

 

I assume the two children are his and are USCs so you only need to pay fees and do paperwork for you and only you will need the medical.

So hello again everyone. My husband and I visited the embassy in Trinidad yesterday. We did not get to speak about short notice job or dcf, the consular blatantly  ignored us and promted us to email or call the immigrant visa department. As stated in my earlier post we did on numerous occasions  and were denied. As we got home  hussy emailed the immigrant Visa section for what seemed like the 5th time in 3 months since he recieved  the job offer. Now (today) we have just recieved an email saying th field office director from the Santo domingo uscis office has granted the embassy a chance to review the petitions to see if they are clearly approvable. They are asking my husband (USC) to come in alone to review the petitions. Yay!!!!!!
