CASE: I-130 and Consular Processing – Marriage-Petition
CLIENT: US Citizen Petitioner; Chinese Beneficiary
LOCATION: Petitioner: Sacramento, CA; Beneficiary: Hubei, China
Our Chinese client contacted our office in the middle of May 2011. He is a U.S. Citizen living in California and sought legal assistance for his wife’s case in China. The USCIS, based on a request from the U.S. Embassy in Guangzhou, issued an intent to revoke his I-130 petition.
Our client married his Chinese citizen wife back in November 2008. This was the first marriage for both him and his wife. He mentioned that he never even had a girlfriend before, all the time consumed with work and school here in the United States. He is a civil engineer in Sacramento California.
Our client filed an I-130 petition for his wife in January 2009. On March 20, 2009, the Director of the California Service Center approved the I-130 petition and his wife was eventually interviewed at the U.S. Embassy in Guangzhou. Her U.S. Citizen husband was even there during the interview. However, the U.S. Embassy denied her immigrant visa application, and the approved I-130 petition was subsequently returned to the California Service Center by the Department of State for further review and action. The USCIS then issued a Notice of Intent to Revoke.
After our office was retained, we filed a Response to Intent to Revoke on July 7, 2011 with the USCIS California Service Center. Over 200 pages of documents and 30 exhibits were submitted in our response. On July 21, 2011, the USCIS determined that they will not to revoke our client’s I-130 petition. After the affirmation of the I-130 petition, the US Consulate in Guangzhou, China set another interview date for our client’s wife for her immigrant visa. On November 9, 2011, the U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou, China conducted the immigrant visa interview for our client’s wife and simultaneously approved and issued her immigrant visa on the same day.
With the approved Immigrant visa, our client’s wife can come to the United States immediately, and she will get her green card within two weeks of entry. She finally would be able to be with her husband.
