I gave up my permanent resident card in July 2013 (it had expired Aug 2012). So I went to the US consulate
to get a visa. I thought it was a technicality. (Note I arrived in the US in 1974 as a 2yr old child and lived there since 2000...but held my perm.resident card since 2000 living outside US due to work/university).
I kept my card to visit my parents once a year.
So I went to get the visa and was denied. The agent asked for further documents like bank statement and work contract, and I said I could bring it back. He said, NO, my application was denied. During my interview when he asked my reasons for the visit...at some point I said I wanted my mother to see me pregnant and healthy because I had a miscarriage earlier in the year. He asked me how many months pregnant I was and I answered 4months.
I was denied on grounds of 214b.
I didnt realise my disclosure of pregnancy was an issue so I made an appt the following week, with every known document one could have.
I was DENIED a 2nd time.
After enquiring with friends and some online search I realised it might have been because I WAS PREGNANT.
When should I apply again? AFTER the child is born?
I just want to visit my mother who I havent seen in over a year.
