Free Consultation »

The USCIS might deny a permanent residence application a variety of reasons. From an administrative perspective, permanent residence applications can be denied for failing to present requested documents, a divorce decree for example; fraudulently completing documents, criminal history or failing to provide adequate evidence of ability to financially support the foreign spouse.

From a relationship perspective, permanent residence applications can be denied because the USCIS officer is not convinced that a bona-fide marriage exists between the U.S. citizen and their foreign spouse.
