Free Consultation »

The United States embassy or consulate might deny the immigrant visa for a variety of reasons. From an administrative perspective, immigrant visas can be denied for failing to present requested documents, a divorce decree for example; incorrectly completing documents, or failing to provide adequate evidence of ability to financially support the foreign relative.
From a relationship perspective, immigrant visas can be denied because the United States embassy or consulate officer is not convinced that a legal family relationship exists between the U.S. citizen or permanent resident and their foreign relative.
