My wife received a refusal when she applied for an H4 visa for the 4th time and received a refusal code
212 (a) (6) (c) (ii) the Shenyang embassy in China last year.
The explanation given by the embassy is that when she was in F1, she applied a school that had been involved in a fraudulent problem and had already been closed down.
In fact, it's when my wife applied this school well before school had a scandal and she did not enroll in this school at all. She did family shopping and stayed physically in China all year.
Then she came to the United States with me under H4 after our wedding. She has nothing to do with the school anymore.
We found a lawyer who said he could really help us on appeal and who charged me $ 7,500 for the case. In fact, they send an e-mail to the embassy to ask why she was denied and received an answer: "She already has everything she needs to know". Then they told me that they will appeal to the State Department. They said the process is DoS will allow the Embassy to correct their decision and let us wait. (month of waiting without guarantee of answer)
I feel fooled by the lawyer and my money is wasted.
Can someone help?
