I don't understand why, my case is about as straight-forward as it could be. My girlfriend came over on a B1/B2 visa, and four months later we married. I am an American citizen and she is a South African citizen. We filed the complete Adjustment of Status package, did the medical exam, the biometrics exam, the whole works. So, just two days ago, the I-130 and the I-765 was approved, but the I-485 and the I-131 was denied. So what now? Her I-94 is expired. Is she going to be deported or what? We have not yet received the letter stating why she was denied. Neither of us have any police record at all - just two nice people who have never been in trouble or anything. The appeal alone cost another $630, and that is if they allow us to appeal. So my question is, suppose the worst that can happen does, and they don't let us appeal. Will they really deport my wife - and why would the do that? They just gave her permission to work here, for pete's sake.
