Will a lawyer be able to speak to a supervisor?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was wondering if I can pay a lawyer to call the NVC, and request to speak to a supervisor.. Will that work at all? It will be nice if I am finally able to speak to one, and hear directly from them what can be done about my cases taking so long.

Can you make an appointment at your local office and get more info?


The total amount of days from the date I mailed in our K1 Visa application to the day my fiancé stepped foot into the USA:

1 year, 3 months and 8 days.

The amount of days from the date we mailed in our AOS to the date everything was approved (after 3 RFEs):

7 months & 5 days

Which makes our journey a total of:

2 years, 3 months, and 8 days

Hi,

No. A lawyer will need to file form G-28 to represent you. Immigration will not release your information to a third party without your written consent.

Okay, I understand.. Thank you for the information.

Can you make an appointment at your local office and get more info?

Hi, what do you mean by local office? Are you talking about uscis? My cases are at NVC getting ready to be completed. Only God knows when that is going to happen, but I am hopeful.

OP's case is at the NVC which is a singular facility. There are no local offices.

You can talk to a supervisor.

No, I can't... I have called 87 times to the NVC since August to this date, and believe me when I tell you that I have not been given the opportunity to talk to a supervisor. Their CLASSIC ANSWER IS: THERE IS NO ONE AVAILABLE.. The last time I called, it was funny because when I requested to talk to the supervisor, I immediately said; "LET ME GUESS, THERE IS NO ONE AVAILABLE" the girl laughed and hung up the phone on me. I really hope that Karma gets her one day.

You need to call BEFORE 6pm EST.

Government workers typically work between 6am and 6pm. Any shifts before or after those times earns them extraneous pay which the government doesn't want to dish out unless necessary. If you've called before 6pm EST and they still haven't transferred you then call your senator or congressman and make a complaint, fill out some disclosure documents and ask them to find out what is going on.

I have called at various times. To be honest to you, I gave up! Now, I am just letting the process to on its on, and be ready whenever it will be ready. In a couple of months is going to be the anniversary of my petitions being at NVC. YOU CAN'T FIND AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT. NVC IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE RIGHT NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU CAN PROVE THEM WRONG.
