Does the H-4 visa get rejected?

Does the H-4 visa get rejected?

The visa sponsor (or primary applicant) must be able to provide for their H4 dependents. The H4 visa application will be refused under 212(A) if the primary applicant's financial resources do not reach or exceed the state poverty threshold (4). We can see from his/her income report that Terry's net monthly income is less than $1242. That's below the state poverty threshold for a family of four.

There are two ways to prove that you are financially capable of supporting yourself and your family. One is to submit a cashier's check or money order for $10,000. The other is to show that you have a good faith effort to secure employment within the United States that provides at least 110% of the federal poverty level. If you cannot meet this requirement, then the Department of Homeland Security may deny your petition.

Terry has submitted an affidavit stating that he or she has no more than $10,000 in cash or cash equivalents. This should be enough proof that Terry is capable of supporting himself or herself and his or her family. However, since there is still a chance that DHS could reject Terry's petition even with this evidence, we recommend that he or she also submit some job offers and/or resume' s to demonstrate his or her efforts to find employment.

Do H4 visas get rejected?

Is it possible for the H4 visa to be denied? There is a chance that the H4 visa may be denied. Among the most prevalent explanations are: Refusal under Section 212(a): The denial in this section indicates that the visa officer is not convinced of the sponsor's financial situation. More specifically, there is suspicion that the employer will not fulfill its obligation to pay employment taxes.

Refusal under Section 214(i): This section deals with situations where the visa officer believes that there is a significant risk that the alien will become a public charge. In such cases, the visa office has the right to deny the application altogether.

Denial under Section 245A: This section allows the Department of State to refuse to issue certain types of temporary worker permits if doing so would serve the interests of the United States. This section is rarely used but can be applied when there is concern about security risks or potential labor market abuse.

Denial under Section 215: This section allows the Department of State to refuse to issue certain types of non-immigrant visas if doing so would serve the interests of the United States.

Denial under Section 253: This section allows the Secretary of Homeland Security to refuse to issue a visa if she believes it would be detrimental to the national interest.

When does an H4 dependent visa expire?

H4 Dependent Visa A H4 visa holder may sponsor their spouse and dependent children until they reach the age of 21. After 21 years, the H4 Dependent Visa will no longer be valid, and the children will need to apply for a B2 Visa to enter the United States. An applicant can only be issued up to 3 new B2 Visas per year.

There is no specific date after which your H4 Dependent Visa will expire if you are still married to your sponsoring employer. However, because the Department of State requires that you file a DVO (Divorce Certificate) to prove that you are legally free from marriage obligations, it is recommended that you file for divorce by this time if you have not already done so. If you are no longer married to your sponsoring employer but continue to work for them, then you must file a change of status form with the Department of Homeland Security to indicate that you now qualify as a single person for purposes of the VISA. This form can be filed at any U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office nationwide. It should be noted that even though the H4 Dependent Visa allows its holders to work in the United States, it does not provide any path to citizenship. So, although there is no official deadline for filing for divorce or changing your status, it is recommended that you do so as soon as possible after reaching the age of 21.
