Yes just do that because your visa was denied without much proof of how your dad accumulated the wealth.Hey Guys,
6/26/08. My sister applied for her F1 in Chennai and she got it rejected when the VO said "I am not convinced with the financial documents"
My dad retired a few years ago and he got a large sum of money. So we showed that amount with all the other investments, and income from rental properties (rental agreements), my mom's paycheck..and more..
Acc to my sis the conversation was like this:
VO: how did you get $33000 cash in your bank account. (The I20 required about $25000.)
Sis: we have money in investements and FD(fixed deposits) that was transferred into the bank account.
VO: how did you get the money into FD?
Sis: My dad has been working for 35 years and has saved all this money. We have property rental income and here are the rental agreements to show the proof. My mom still works for the Govt and here are her paychecks. My dad retired in 2001 and he got a lump sum of money that was invested in FDs and such. Here is bank statments for the last few months telling its all genuine and property evaluation document showing the worth of property. CA statements etc.
VO: hmm.. am not convinced.. your father worked for 35 years and retired and got a lump sum.. hmm.. you dont have any documents to show that.
Sis: That was 7 years ago he retired and his money was all transferred into banks and FD and other investments then. I have bank statments from March 2008.
VO: Somehow am not convinced.. I have to deny visa..
Now I think we should reapply with more proof about my dad's retirement money and sources of funds... Is there anything else we need to worry about or prepare?
