Please in regards to my wife F2 VISA application, she is still in my home country (Nigeria), she has applied twice but denied on the two instances. First for my Graduation on B1/B2 Visa and secondly on F2 Visa during my OPT. It has been traumatic for her. That why I would like to seek your counsel in regards to this. If there are specific requirements or conditions for F2 Visa applicant. However, no reasons were given for the denials
Just got my STEM OPT approved for another 2 years
I don't want her to go and apply again if we are falling short of any requirement that will lead to a third denial.
It is not possible to give an answer ask to why the visas were denied and what can be done to overcome that, without a thorough evaluation and that is not possible in this open on-line forum. You may wish to speak with the DSO at your university and ask for a referral to an immigration attorney who has experience with F visa issues. A confidential consultation may be very helpful. Do bring with you a copy of whatever you have that your wife has submitted for past applications. Wishing you good luck.
Prior to initiating another request for the F-2 non-immigrant visa, an assessment of the evidence and testimony presented to the U.S. consulate must first be made. An experienced immigration attorney can assist you with this matter.
It is advisable to retain an immigration attorney to assist you on this matter. The attorney will review the prior denials and advise you accordingly.
