    Answered . Don't be so sure he'll deny--bad energy. He may review it, and figure out it's fine. If not, then you will get a written decision with the express reason for the denial. In that case I'd have a consultation with an attorney just to verify everything. If it is all correct, and the reason given in the written decision is clearly wrong, then file the appeal.

    Answered . You should consult an experienced immigration attorney. The attorney can review your application and assess your eligibility. Assuming you are correct, the attorney could submit a brief memorandum on your behalf specifically addressing this issue. They can also assess your chances of success on a petition for rehearing, if necessary.

    Answered . That's right: don't be so pessimistic. I hope the officer can count, even though sometimes they do make mistakes. So, hope for the best, and if gets denied, APPEAL!! But not before you review your documents with an attorney. Good luck!
