I completed my masters by May 2017 and I am currently in F1-OPT status and have been working in USA since 19th June 2017. I received my first payslip and i scheduled F2 interview for my wife at Chennai consulate. Interviewer asked which visa I am at currently and my wife informed that I am currently in OPT status and working since 19th June. Interviewer did not ask for any further evidences. He just informed that I am in student visa and refused F2 visa for my wife citing 214-B.
I understand that once F2 is rejected, it is really difficult to get F2 approved again. To resolve this, I have approached the Senator of the state for his approval mentioning that I wanted to gain practical knowledge during OPT period and that I do not want to get settled as an immigrant. How likely it is to receive visa approval on the second attempt? (Note: My wife is showing home ties by mentioning the residential properties in India. We have been married for 3.5 years)
