Is there a way to complain to the USCIS if they do deny? There is an official appeals process and you would normally use to file an appeal. Appeals don’t overturn a decision very frequently.

New Policy: Trump Admin Will Deny Rather Than Issue RFEs

In a disturbing memo issued by USCIS (PM-602-0163) on July 13, 2018, we were made aware of a new policy which will make it much easier for the Trump Administration to issue denials for legal immigration cases across the board (with the exception of DACA), including fiance visas, spousal visas, green card applications and more.

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.

Can I Get a Vaccine Waiver for K1 Fiance Visa?

“My husband is in the Dominican Republic. He would like a vaccine waiver. Does RapidVisa assist in that process?” The short answer is no. The longer answer is, if you use one, you can still do the process with us and we can submit your waiver along with the petition. It’s no problem at all. […]

7 Common Reasons for Receiving an Adjustment of Status RFE

Whenever a request for evidence, or “RFE” is received, it can be a stressful part of the process. At RapidVisa, we see more RFEs at the adjustment of status phase than any other in the immigration process.
