Refused for administrative processing, means it's not over yet, you are back in administrative processing while they determine what to do. Will it ultimately be denied? Possibly without the China report but could come back in a month and say "approved and issued"... or it could sit in administrative processing for months and months and even years... at this point kind of have to wait for the embassy to make their decision. While it is frustrating, had research been done prior to this whole endeavor, this could have possibly been avoided as you would have been aware of needing the police clearances and all requirements.

 

If inevitably it is denied/refused and the petition returned to USCIS (again after the embassy does their administrative process), you could try for a CR-1/spousal visa, but, you must know what it was denied. If it is because of the inability to obtain the Chinese police report, it will be same issue with that process as this one. So that is important to understand before jumping into it.

If you are in Administrative Processing your petition is still alive.   AP is rather open ended 2 days to multiple years.   

Hang in there.

the additional questions you had to fill out about Siblings,  social media and travel is the ds5535 3 page form

this takes additional security checks and most are taking a year 

you can read the 260 page post here about that form (unable to comment on the post there as it is closed to further posts) but it helps to hear what other people are facing

Libya more likely the issue.

Normally Manila doesn't use the DS-5535. They have put her in AP and I suspect that they have issues with not having the PC from China and OP mentioned an overstay condition.  I think thats the rabbit hole. OP just needs to sit tight till she hears back.

China is similar to South Korea in the same way. OP said they had overstayed their Visa, and many countries once you overstay they will not give you a police clearance certificate no matter what. I guess it is how they punish you. Now, usually you will still have an exit stamp because obviously you left the country at some point, depending on how you left depends on how the US looks at it. If you were caught and actually deported, that looks bad. If you took advantage of one of the times they let you leave with amnesty kinda, usually twice a year they give you a opportunity to leave on your own accord where you turn yourself in, and they allow you to leave without paying the penalty or fine. You may still get a 3-5 year ban, but it's a way for countries to clean up the house per say. If you look at the stamp, it Should have a code or something with 2 letters and some numbers, and you can Google it to see what it means. But by looking at the exit stamp, the US embassy will know you can't get a police clearance certificate from them, and I think you said they waived it. So, you are going to have to ride out the AP and see what happens.
