Iam an American citizen by birth but grew up in Nigeria. My parents are Nigerians. I married a Nigerian and we have son together. Iam expecting a second child in February. My husband would love to here for the birth of our second child especially since he missed the first birth but was denied a visa today at the embassy in Nigeria.
I don't think anyone could give you a helpful answer to this question without knowing why your husband was denied a visa. You should have a piece of paper from the consulate that states the reason why he was denied a visa. Depending on the basis for the denial there could be some options available to you. If you provide that information people here may be able to assist you.
You should definitely consult an immigration attorney to see what option may be available to you.
This response does not constitute legal advice and it does not establish an attorney-client relationship. I recommend you meet with an attorney.
The reason for the denial should be known for a thorough answer. If the denial is because he has immigrant intent and was trying to get a B visitor visa, then as a US citizen, you can sponsor him for a green card. But there is no way this will be approved and processed by February.
