I came to the USA on a fiancee visa with my two children in 2003. My fiance & I married within the 90 days.
When applying for my conditional status I did not apply separatly for my children, I added them to my application because they didn't have their own visas.
I only realised my mistake when I applied for my oldest child's AOS, it was denied because the USCIS needed the Notice of Action document my husband had received regarding my fiancee visa (this form was not required for my application). We did not have the document and were unsuccessful attempting to retrieve it from USCIS.
When we applied the second time we were advised by an immigration officer to begin from scratch and apply for a visa (I-130) for him. This was denied because there was not a visa available??? plus they asked for more infomation which I supplied, but they said it did not get to them on time, We mailed the documents 4 weeks before the deadline.
We are hesitant to apply again, because of the cost, I want to go home because of all of this, but my children want to get their permanant residencies so they can choose where they want to live in the future.
Is there a way to apply for their visas if we do move back to the UK? Or do we have to be residents in the US (long shot!!!)
How much would it cost to get help the forms if we applied again.
I'm desparate, any suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks You for your time.
