Our case has been with the CSC for many months

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

You guys may or may not remember me. Been busy over these many months. Anyway, I'll get down right to it.

This is the issue. My fiancée, Amanda, has been in correspondence with the senator's aide and today she said she received some information saying that our case cannot be refuted. To give you some history, I had my interview on December 12th 2006. Everything was all right, except they said they needed more financial backup showing on the affidavit of support. I got that. I sent it in. The next time they tell me that they want to see copies of our engagement ceremonies, guests, bills etc. We didn't have that because we had it at our house. They wanted 20 guests. Why be so specific? I don't know. Anyway, after giving them as much info as I possibly could, they said they couldn't review my case any further and had sent it back to the California Service Center. This was in February. Now it's going into August and said that our case cannot be refuted and was recommended to refile.

I simply despise the people who reviewed our case. We have been cheated out of being together. I want to take this further, to the next level. How do I contact the senator himself? The senator's name is Kit Bond. I am so tired of going through all of this. I need to know how I can get my visa and be with my fiancée. What other options can I utilize since the senator's aide didn't do much.

I'm not sure if you'll get to talk to the senator directly. Even our representatives' hands are tied to a certain extent when it comes to USCIS.

I've no idea what 'your case cannot be refuted' means. Sounds like a misnomer of some sort. If I were in your position, I would hire myself a qualified immigration attorney and find out what your next steps should be.

Anyway, good luck.

We were in contact with Ellis Island, an attorney over here. He told us to exhaust all options and then if that fails, for her to come down and get married.

I don't believe that person is on VJ anymore.

I'm not saying what he said was wrong, but I'd seek another opinion. I'd want a clear answer on the status of my current case before deciding how to proceed.

I don't understand this sentence in your original post: "Now it's going into August and said that our case cannot be refuted and was recommended to refile." Who told you this? The CSC? Did you receive a NOID (notice of intent to deny)?

Marc Ellis... His VJ handle is/was Ellis Island

He turns up every once in a while on here. Knows his stuff quite well - specializes in fiancee petitions, especially for southeast Asia. If you google him, you'll find he's written many interesting papers.

I think what they've been told is the case will not be re-opened.

Refiling a different type of petition is probably the recommendation Ellis was speaking of.

That's what I was thinking, but the 'refute' verbiage threw me.

Ryan+Mandi, I keep wondering how you guys are doing, thanks for the update. :)

I'm sorry for all your troubles, I really feel for you! :(:crying:

I think that instead of trying to needlessly fight the current decision of your petition, better to have Mandi come over there to India nd you guys get married. Be sure to get whatever marriage documentation is necessary, then have Mandi file a K3. Because your love is strong and ongoing relationship can be easily proved, hopefully you will have an approval this time around. Really our prayers and thoughts are with you two, for a happy future together in USA! :yes::thumbs:(F)(L)
