In Nov 4 my spouse, had an interview in Georgetown Guyana. She was given a 221g form, that sated, they wanted my 2019 tax w2 transcript and my household sponsor as well. I email them the 2019 transcript to that email that was provided. I also uploaded to the ceac.state email Fast forward today my visa status still show refused. I email the consulate about 2 or 3 times. I got a response only 1 time saying they receive my document an it is in pending. Each time I email them the case date status update, but still say refuse. Do I need to hire a lawyer for this? Any help is welcome.

When my husband got a similar 221(g) after his interview for a missing document, the document was delivered the following day. The Embassy in Paris confirmed they received it. The status remained Refused for 90 days after that. In other words, it took the Embassy three months to complete Administrative Processing.

They use the term "refused" to mean the case is still pending, i.e., not yet approved and they have not yet made a decision.  Wait and be patient, if you sent them exactly what they asked for, and they judge it to satisfy any concerns they had about your case, it should be approved soon.  Good luck!

It is not weird at all for Pakistani cases.  It happens very frequently.

But with no documents required what would be reason to put our case in AP when CO said our case is smooth.

Could be additional background checks, etc.  It happens frequently in Pakistan.
