Form I-130 Revocation

My wife just attended an immigrant visa interview at London and not only was the case denied but the officer told her that the petition would be revoked! This is insane! What can we do? Can we appeal?

Unfortunately, an Consular Officer’s decision cannot be appealed. However, what can be done, through attorney channels, is to determine why the immigrant visa petition was denied and returned for revocation. Then a response to the revocation request can be filed with the USCIS office that approved the Form I-130. The USCIS then can send the case back to the Consular Post with instructions to reconsider their decision which can result in a second interview. This process can take up to two years but in some cases it can be as fast as 6 months.
