My husband is an American citizen. He and I just received the denial notice:

The denial reasons:
Establish a bona fide relationship to certain alien relatives who wish to immigrate to the United States.
Establish the appropriate legal status (i.e., U. S. citizenship or lawful permanent residence) to submit a petition on the beneficiary s behalf.
We are surprised because we thought the interview went well. She scanned our insurance card (both name), both bank card, kept the six-month mutual bank accounts papers, requested us to send a more-detailed apartment lease and a work/employment verification letter to prove he lived/worked in GA. Everything seemed to go good and she didn t even ask us to show our album. I asked her if she needs to see our album and she said no. Did it happen to anyone? I found it blizzard. Also, the denial notice came only first page, page 3 and page 5. Are we missing pages???
When we received the Request for Evidence, it also asked the evidence to prove our marriage. Hence, we sent six pics to them along with the entire apt lease and his employment letter. On Thursday, we got the denial letter. My husband was mad bc he was born here at a military hospital. We are not sure what the reason they would think he is not a citizen. A person who doesn't change the ID to current state ID would be a problem? Would he drive his mom's car to be a problem? What things we can gather to prove he is a citizen? We've submitted the birth certificate before.
I'm scared and really don't know what to do since the letter came in like one-two weeks late and I only have two weeks left. After digging the info online, I felt we could have submitted more evidence like sworn affidavits. Is it too late to change the water/electric bill/water bill to both of our names? Any other material? Letters to show we live together?
Can you please suggest me what the best option for me to do? Appeal? Motion to reopen? Re-apply everything?
I'm waiting for Monday so I can talk to a lawyer but right now I'm really anxious and sad.....Any info would help and be appreciated!!!! Thank you!
