27 Dec I-130 Petition Approved Following Consular Denial of I-129F
Prior to retaining our law firm, our client had field an I-129F Petition for Alien Fiancee without the assistance of an attorney. When our client’s fiancee went to her interview at the U.S. Embassy to apply for a fiancee visa, her visa application was denied on the basis that she failed to establish she had a relationship with our client and intended to marry him. Following the denial, our client came to our law firm for assistance. We recommended that our client travel to his fiancee’s home country, marry her, and then return to the United States and file an I-130 Petition for Alien Relative on her behalf. Our client followed our advice and after his marriage we filed an I-130 Petition on behalf of his spouse, providing substantial documentation of the marriage and explaining that the denial of the fiancee visa by the U.S. Embassy had been in error. The I-130 Petition was approved by USCIS and we are now processing the documentation with the National Visa Center for the scheduling of an immigrant visa application on behalf of our client’s spouse.
