H4 Unlawful presence: more than 180 days, visa refused

Hello Anil

H4 Unlawful presence: more than 188 days
Due to lack to immigration knowledge, H4 extension was not filed. H1B extension was approved though.

My wife initial H4 stamp issued until Sep 30, 2023. On June 2nd 2023 while applying my H1b extension I asked my employer. He said that they will take care at that time. On Sep 18th 2023, we got to know that she was pregnent and due to some complications she had missed abortion. We were in depression at that time.
On march 27th 2024 we realised that H4 extension didn’t filed. I immediately approached my company’s attorney they suggested to go back to India for stamping.

On April 25th, 2024 she attended in person interview at Hyd location and VO mentioned about the overstay and returned the passport by stating 212(a)(9)(b)(i) not recommending at this time.

While checking the status I can see the below message means is it rejected or admin processing?

A U.S. consular officer has adjudicated and refused your visa application. Please follow any instructions provided by the consular officer. If you were informed by the consular officer that your case was refused for administrative processing, your case will remain refused while undergoing such processing. You will receive another adjudication once such processing is complete. Please be advised that the processing time varies and that you will be contacted if additional information is needed. For more information, please visit TRAVEL.STATE.GOV or the website for the Embassy or Consulate at which you made your visa application.

For more information, please visit U.S. Consulate General Hyderabad.

I think visa officer is not inclined to waive the violation. Can’t say with 100% confidence as case details matter here along with what all was asked and answered in the interview.
