    She got her passport about a month ago, but I think the lawyer isn't up to date.. this is very different than what she said. Mi esposa had to get a letter of conduct and I was suppose to jump through hoops in the US.
    I don't know what type of visa the lawyer was having her apply for, but she needs a B2 visa. Visitors visa. I think the website said that a letter of employment, CV, OR proof that you have paid taxes. Maybe providing your proof of income, or a bank statement from a joint account would be sufficient. You also have plenty of time between now and the time of the next available appointment to get the documents together.

    What kind of visa are the lawyers trying to talk you out of money to get?*

    Good luck and let us know how it works out.*
    I think it is still virtually impossible to get a visa for a spouse. I tried this summer and my wife was denied.

    Just curious, but why are you recently putting an asterisk after all your sentences?

    My brother in law was approved this summer. He provided his children's birth certificates, a bank statement, title for his truck, and proof that he paid taxes( he does not make a lot of money). He had other documents with him, but they were satisfied with just those. He stated his reason for travelling to the US was to visit his wife's family. His in-laws wrote a letter of invitation, but he didn't need it.

    I think getting another bank account for her business might help... she doesn't pay taxes. She starts with $15-$30 of spices each week and ends up netting $80-$150 selling in tiny bags to colmados. She doesn't usually get factoras from her suppliers.

    If you get an appointment for say April, can you still get processed by waiting in line? Are those all walk-in applicants?

    Thanks for the info folks, I think we were going on a wild goose chase..

    How long of a visit was she planning? We want two weeks or so. We have our business here and her kids.

    We were turned down cold with a four year marriage. They give no reason. You cannot attend the turn down interview. I was so angry about what happened we got a green card and are now back and forth instead of living full time in DR. Wife is now a US citizen so we are free from immigration nonsense. Good luck but do not expect much from visitor visa app. No lawyer needed and it will have no effect on outcome

    Your first appointment will be for the VAC in Galerias 360 for a biometric photo and digital finger prints That's all - total of about 15-20 minutes.. There is no other place where you can do this and it is by appointment ONLY. All those people you see standing in line have an appointment - some are with friends, but only those with an appointment are allowed to enter.

    They will not let you in ahead of your scheduled appointment time(they do start reviewing paperwork - for example those that have an appointment at 11am at around 10:30am - and then let you go inside. They put up a sign showing what appointment times are currently being accepted.

    Depending on where you live, you might want to schedule you VAC and embassy interview on the same day, or at least on consecutive days so as to avoid a long, tiring trip.

    As far as I know the only VAC is in the capital.
