US Immigration law does not require consummation of a marriage for a marriage based petition to be granted, but given the situation you describe at the interview you will want to be prepared that they may intend to allege marriage fraud and not only deny the application, but potentially file charges in regards XXXXX XXXXX You will want to consult with an immigration attorney as soon as possible. It would be best if you could both go together, and write down before hand as much as you remember of the interview. You can wait to receive something in the mail, but you may be better off being proactive and submitting additional evidence of the good faith nature of your marriage before a potential denial is issued.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
