More details to this question:
My fiance and I met in India March 2010. We filed 14 mos later due to financial hardship.It took over a year to be approved by USCIS and few more mnths to get an interview for him in his country (Nigeria). They did not give him much time and he was told it was not enough evidence to prove bonefide relationship. We had affadavit of marriage done in India and photos and some emails but he was still denied. I received final notice from USCIS that case is closed and to reapply. The approval was only valid 4 mos from USCIS but Nigeria US Consolate took nearly 2 months to return the case to NVC and then 4 mos to send it to USCIS for review. I received notice today its past the 4 month period of validity and must reapply again for a new case. It has been 3 years now since we met in India. I need some advice on what the next step we should take is and how to bring my fiance here. If they take more than the time of validity then how can I be approved to bring my fiance here?

You say this person is your fiancé but you describe a marriage too.   Are you married?

Regardless of your situation, U.S. immigration law can be confusing. Are you seeking to come to the United States for pleasure, business or to attend school? Do you want to stay here just temporarily, for a longer period of time or live here permanently? Are you a permanent resident or seeking citizenship? If you want to come to the United States, immigration lawyers can help determine your eligibility for various types of visas and guide you through the application process. If you've already arrived in the United States, an immigration attorney can determine whether you're eligible for permanent residency and if you can bring family members into the country to live with you. Immigration law firms can also work with individuals who have entered the country illegally, overstayed their visas or violated the conditions of their visas and are facing removal or deportation proceedings.
