Practice Area: Immigration
Outcome: Visa Granted
Description: We prepared a thorough petition and presented all necessary elements. The initial paperwork was approved through USCIS and moved through the National Visa Center. Petitioner's fiancee went to interview that the Manila Consulate and was denied for failure to meet in person within two years of filing, a threshold requirement. The problem with the Consulate's decision was that it measured the dates improperly. The parties had met within the past two years and, therefore, the denial was wrong. We appealed the decision and within one month of filing through the appropriate channels, Petitioner's fiancee was told the Consulate officer made a mistake and her visa would be issued. She is now holding her visa and is in the US.
