Is there a charge. I hired a lawyer to file an I-129F to
I hired a lawyer to file an I-129F to obtain a K1 visa for my fiancee in Brazil that had been denied entry to the US on his last trip here - because they found information in his cell phone that he had performed services for pay on his previous visit. I asked the lawyer about this and he said no problem, they submitted the I-129F papers and after 7 months was approved, but visa denied because he should have filed a waiver. SO - I hired another lawyer to file the waiver (I-212) which I understood would be filed with the consulate that denied the visa - Rio De Janiero. I submitted al the information to this lawyer July 27, 2018. I had planned to meet my fiance in Santiago, Chili for some time together and we discussed a side trip to Buenos Aires to marry there while waiting for his waiver and visa to be approved. I checked with the lawyer to see if that would be a problem - our reasoning was IF the waiver was denied, then we would file an I-130 to try to get him here as a spouse. The lawyer said if we wanted to marry that was up to us, we would still need the waiver - which I understood. So on the trip we went to Buenos Aires and married on 16 Aug. We both returned home - him to Brazil, me to Dallas. I kept waiting for updates on when the 212 would be filed and set up a meeting with a young lawyer in the firm that was now handling my case. He said that since we were married he could not in good faith file the 212 because that was related to a K1 visa and that now that we are married he would need to file the I-130 AND the 212 at the same time. I said whatever, lets just get something done. He called this evening and said he is checking what our best option would be (they have had all of my information since July 27) and that it could take up to 2 years to get an I-130 approved. To tell the truth, I have lost faith in their ability or knowledge and I would like to know WHAT we need to do, or some guidance. … read more
