Would F2 visa get accepted

Asked about 1 year ago - Chicago, IL

I am presently doing MS in USA in F1 visa.I have the necessary fund as shown in I20 to complete the course.However I don't have an assistantship at present and I am doing an hourly oncampus job in which I earn $1068 per month.
Now I want to apply for F2 visa of my wife and I do have the modified fund in I20 that will be required to show for her presence over here.Is there any chance that it can get rejected when she will go for stamping at US consulate in India.

    Answered . Non-immigrant visas are subjective. If financial support, intent to come back home etc are all shown, it should be approved. But I've seen a lot of instances abroad where the intent and relationship in a derivative non-immigrant application (F2 for example) are legit yet the consul denies it. Same goes for tourist visa applications - you can have proper intent to simply visit and even have enough financial income and ties back home, but they get denied sometimes. But your question was whether there is a "chance" of rejection, and the honest answer is yes (that goes for everything). But on whether it SHOULD be approved, it's an F2, you're the husband, you're maintaining status and can support her, so it should be fine.
