False claim to U.S. citizenship help

My wife was denied her resident visa in Lima, Peru under False Claim to U.S. citizenship. They are aledging she filed a u.s. passport application, and we are pretty much in the dark. We are trying to obtain evidence, but we haven't been successful because the embassy abroad has a non-disclosurable policy. Anyone with a similar situation? Any success stories? Any advice please? and finally any immigration attorney recommendations. Only positive comments please. No judgement we are going through enough. I am looking for help only. Appreciate any help. Thank you

No judgement on here.

 

Also no waiver for a false claim to US Citizenship. Realistically this closes the US Immigration option.

Can you actually prove that she didn't apply for a US passport? 

Not sure how to prove it if we haven't received any evidence from embassy or anything. We are pretty much in the dark. We are working with an attorney who requested her passport FOIA to see what shows up, but its been 4 months and still no reply.

You will not receive anything else from the Consulate, begs the question what you were told by your Lawyer, certainly your first post implied that this was something recent.

FOIA maybe? See if anything pops up at least.

 

Edit: Generally, identity proofing is required for an initial passport application. This is done by an agent that verifies your ID at the time of accepting the application. Plus there's obviously the documentation of being a USC required. It is quite difficult for somebody to successfully submit a passport application for somebody else (barring a parent, but that would not be held against the minor).
