    pushbrk got a reaction from AKN in Visa refused Sent back to NVC   
    Some good advice so far but nobody mentions which party is older.  If he's 20 years older, no problem.  If it's her that's 20 years older with only 5 days together in person, that's going to be hard to overcome giving the local culture.
     
    USCIS will eventually send a NOIR, not NOID.  Notice of Intent to Revoke the approval of the petition.  They can't DENY it so no NOID.  Only NOIR.
     
    Further, if she is 20 years older, there can be some real cultural difficulties in moving to Pakistan.  She says she's not from Pakistan.  Where IS she from?  What IS her religion and culture?  All this plays into both the visa decision and her potential adjustment to life in Pakistan.  Time for some real critical thinking here on her part.  If the Consulate doesn't think the relationship is genuine, why does she think so after only 5 days together in person?  Not saying it isn't.  Saying this is a supremely important question for her to be sure about.

    Most likely "Action" is that they assigned the case to a service center.

    What you are reading applies to people adjusting status from within the USA, not people seeking immigrant visas.  A visa is not a green card.  A petition for alien relative (I-130) is not an application for a visa OR a green card.  An immigrant visa is not an application for a green card.  Please take no for an answer.  If you are seeking an immigrant visa for a spouse of a US citizen, you have no privilege to stay in the USA longer than any visitor status by which you enter, allows.

    Note also that they are talking about sign, scan and email or sign scan, print and mail, etc.  Nowhere do they mention an "electronic signature".  Electronically reproduced signatures are not the same thing.  Words mean things.  Interpret literally, not "conveniently" to your desire or agenda.
     
    In a visa process, it's DOS policies you follow, post petition approval through visa issue.

    Not applicable for your case.  For CR-1/IR-1 cases, the I-864  is submitted to NVC, not USCIS.

    It's a USCIS policy for USCIS.  Nowhere does that article say the policy applies to DOS.   USCIS does not dictate policy to NVC or the consulates.

    Your marriage needs to be annulled in the Philippines.  Yes, probably years, if possible at all when neither party to the marriage, actually lives in the Philippines.  Your X is no longer a Philippines Citizen either.  Check with a Filipino lawyer to see if it is even possible for you to start the process.  For now, you need annulment help, not US immigration help.  OR...you need to find a non Pinay.

    And you will not be able to marry in the Philippines, because the PSA (Philippines Statistics Authority) will not give you a CENOMAR.  You could marry in any other country that allows two foreigners to marry, but not in the Philippines.

    There's more to it than this but you need a Cenomar too, in order to get a Philippines Marriage License.  You cannot get one, because the PSA shows you as married.
     
    For the moment, tourists cannot enter the Philippines anyway.  Sounds like you haven't met in person yet, so no fiancee visa is possible for now either.

    You will not be able to marry a Pinay in the Philippines if you married in the Philippines in 2013.  Tough situation regarding Philippines law.

    Fee to USCIS is $535.  Two fees to NVC $325 and $120.  Medical exam fee varies by country.  Last fee is $220 to USCIS, AFTER the visa is in hand.  Those are the required government fees.

    Looks like the two $750 fees are for the organization's services.  You are not required to hire any organization to help you.  If you don't feel confident doing it yourself, start here.  https://www.visajourney.com/partners/

    There's also the problem that the Madrid embassy is only processing non-immigration visas for emergencies right now...so I don't even know if this would count as an "emergency" or if we could get an appointment...

    I mean, you can always try but the main issue with him getting a tourist visa is that he's declared immigrant intent with the filed I-130. From the embassy/consulate's point of view, it's probably not worth it to them to grant him an extended temporary-stay visa because they already know he's going to be moving permanently to the US soon enough. And even if he did get the extended tourist visa, CBP decides how long to let him stay for that specific visit. The tourist visa can be valid for a while, but visa validity is not the same as allowed visit-time. And you don't find the visit-time until you get to CBP.

    He can apply for the tourist visa which will generally allow for 6 months stay at a time however,  with the pending petition and 3 months visit availabiiity through ESTA, it is doomed for denial imo. Remember visitor visa denial will also nullify ESTA. I would use ESTA.

    Do not list family members who have their own petition.  You are sponsoring 1 immigrant per affidavit.  The step children are counted in part 5, to make the household size correct.

    Just leave the answer blank.  As mentioned above, you only need to answer that question if the beneficiary is CURRENTLY in the US.
