I applied for my husband who came to the U.S. illegally. We have 2 children and he was granted a 601 waiver. He left to Mexico in late December 2016 and after his January 2017 interview in the Embassy in Juarez. He was denied based on his tattoos....
Gang-like tattoos are very difficult to fight.
It is too bad that you didn't have an attorney help with the I-601A waiver ... the doctors in Cd.Jz. have been 'coming down' on people with tattoos quite a bit lately.
I suggest you find an attorney in your area ... go to www.ailalawyer.com
Get good photos of the tattoos .. there are some experts that may be able to help.See question
My spouse entered US on a J-1 visa back in 1997. His adjustment application was denied due to 2 year foreign residency requirement. He is fairly certain he was not subject to the requirement. He no longer has any copy of his own, and doesn't remem...
Does he still have the old passport that he used to enter the US with the J-1?
Does he really have no idea who is program sponsor was?
Did he use the J to attend school? If so, have you tried to contact the school?See question
My rest of the documents has been reviewed and I got the email after 2 months so I am just thinking that now it may takes less time

It is strange that the I-130 was separated from the I-485.

Q: Can I change my status from h4 to e3 visa provided that i am an Australian citizen?
Q: Do I need to go back to my home country or out side USA for stamping before change of status?
Q: After every renewal do I need to go for stamping every 2 years?
A: Not if you file extensions and don't leave the US.
Q: Do we need to withdraw the h4 petition or my husbands h1b petition before applying e3 or before going for stamping?
A: I'm confused. Aren't you already in the US on H-4?
Q: Once we get the e3 stamping done can my husband come early and I come later with my kids as he needs to find an apartment before we come?

I had applied for H4 COS + H4EAD in parallel. The EAD card was approved on 05/18/2017 but the H4 Status still show received online. To my surprise I just got the physical copy in mail of H4 Approval Notice and H4EAD Approval Notice both starting f...
You are caught in a 'catch 22'. Once you got the actual physical H-4 approval notice, you were no longer on F-1 and the F-1 OPT/EAD is no longer valid ... don't work until the new EAD shows up.See question
