Case Returned to USCIS – What Now?

“My CR1 visa was sent back to the USCIS on February 26th, no feedback yet. What can be the issue? Everything was legitimate, my husband is a citizen and we’ve been married since December 2016.” Unfortunately, we’re hearing this all too often from many of our applicants and more so probably in the last 6 […]

Expect an RFE – Even If You Included It In Your Petition!

We wanted to alert all of our customers to be prepared to receive potential RFEs, or requests for evidence, even when everything in your petition is perfect. We have had numerous reports of customers receiving RFEs for items that were confirmed to have been included in their petitions, but the USCIS is requesting them anyways.

What Are The Most Common Reasons For Denial? (Fiancé/Spouse Visas)

The number one reason we’re seeing right now is for finances. That’s the affidavit of support. We used to see quite a few RFEs, but now we’re actually seeing denials come in, because they do not meet the income requirements. For a fiance visa, you have to meet 100% of the HHS Poverty Guideline, and for a spousal visa or adjustment of status, it’s 125%, and you can check Form I-684p here.

My Fiance/Girlfriend is Older Than Me – Problem For K1 Visa?

In most cases in our experience, the age gap has not been a issue. The majority of our customers do have an age gap. In cases where the US citizen petitioner is an older male petitioning for someone younger in Asia or Latin America, age gaps of 20 years are common and not a problem for denial.

Will USCIS or a U.S. Embassy Look at My Social Media?

“I’ve read they passed a bill on where they go into your social media after interview, which would prolong the process, and that’ll effect a lot of K-1 Visas and my fiance is from the Philippines.”

The government has always had that authority to investigate pretty much anything.

What Are Likely Causes of Spousal Visa Denial?

“What are the most common reasons for a spousal visa denial?”  It can be typical to receive a denial if financial requirements are not met. Income requirements must be met – 125% of the poverty level for most applicants – and you can also use a joint sponsor or assets to replace income under certain […]

Converting to Islam to “Legally” Divorce in the Philippines

The Philippines is the only country other than the Vatican that outlaws divorce. That’s why it’s no surprise that so many of our customers are surprised to find out that their Filipina fiance cannot qualify for a K1 fiance visa and be with them in the United States due to a previous unresolved marriage.
