Imo your case would have been denied anyway even if it had reached interview as you entered on a B visa with immigrant intent. A denied AOS case is not eligible for re-processing in CP according to usual procedure even in the same year, so I can’t see that you are eligible for a reserved visa. It is an unfortunate outcome, I presume you are entering for DV2022 as well.Hi,
From my personal experience I am ready to confirm that this is not going to happen unfortunately.
In short about my AOS journey.
May, 2019 - winner of DV2020
May 2019-filled out and sent my DV260
The CN was huge 505***
Missed it with all the lawsuits initiated by lawyers, except for the last one by Curtis Morrison but it seems there was no point on that.
September 3, 2020 travelled to USA under B1/B2
September 16, 2020 filed my I-485, I-131, I-765
Sepetmber 30, 2020 the case was accepted and got the receipt numbers
October 9th, 2020 I got the receipt letters
October 20, 2020 interview for biometrics notice
October 21, 2020 I got the ltter that my case was denied on the grounds of not being able to be proceeded by the midnight os September 30, 2020.
Thousands of phone calls to USCIS, emails, converstaions with KCC, 202 officers and thier information line specialists never gave me a clear idea about whether I am eligible for AOS in my case or not. Some of them told me no, some 202 officer told me that as long as I filed my petition and it was received before September 30, 2020 I am good to go.
A congressman was involved in the process to expedite them to accept my case because the time was going by and it was still not registered by the lockbox up until September 30, 2020.
I was ready to take up that risk, I knew it might not work out but decided that if I don't try I would regret not doing that.
I am not sure whether I have a right to participate for CP from my home country among those 9000 reserved visas since I have been rejected for my AOS but this is my story. May be it will help somebody and save somebody elses money, time and nerve cells
