K-1 Fiance Stuck In Administrative Processing For Nearly 2 Years!

March 9, 2021

U.S. Citizen Client lives in the Midwest, but his fiance was stuck in Administrative Processing in the Philippines.

She was placed in Administrative Processing in October 2018.

He tried everything to get her here, but nothing worked. He even contacted his Congressman for help. The couple was beyond frustrated and sad.

For 5 years, they relied on Skype and Messenger to stay connected.

After meeting with me, I knew we could help them.

In January 2020, 
@mcbeanlawpllc sent the embassy a letter.

When the embassy sent us a generic response to our letter, we took stronger action: mandamus.

In March 2020, we filed our lawsuit against the State Department to force them to take action in our Client’s case.

In July 2020, the U.S. Attorney's Office informed us that the Client’s fiance has been moved out of Administrative Processing!

Now, we needed to work with the clients to update the visa application, prepare additional documents, etc.

Once everything was submitted to the embassy, the Client’s fiance experienced a little setback with her health. Also, routine visa services were still suspended, so we had to wait a couple of months.

On January 12, 2021, we did a Skype mock interview with the Client’s fiance.

On January 13, 2021, she had her embassy interview.

On January 14, 2021, the U.S. Attorney’s Office informed us that the visa had been approved!

On January 28, 2021, the embassy delivered her visa packet to the local agency that was helping to coordinate things on the ground!

Our client immediately booked a ticket to America for his fiance!!!!

After a 5-year long distance relationship, our clients can finally move forward with their life in the U.S.!!
