Waiting too long for I-130 approval

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm waiting almost 2 years for I-130 approval. Last 7 months my case is at Federal Plaza. I went there for info pass and still nothing. Last couple weeks I can't find nothing about my case online. It's says they cannot give me information about my case

I don't know why. First I was thinking something is wrong with their website. But, it's still same. I have info pass next week.

Can someone tell me please are they doing something on my case

Thanks

Contact your local senator's office. Ask them to make an inquiry. Put a service request in and contact ombudsman's office.

Hi. Yesterday I went for infopass at Federal Plaza

The lady was soooo nice. She saw that I'm waiting for approval almost 20 months and she check my file

And she didn't understand why I'm waiting so long.

Then,she went to speak with main manager ,I think.

She gave me paper actually,interview inquire to fill out. When I finish that she told me wait for the interview date. Does anybody know for how long the interview date I will wait for ? Also,she told me im married for 13 years and I have two kids ,but this is only way they can approve I-130

hi ! I waited almost 2 yrs to get approved it was beyond horrible!!! I got my senator involved at 7 months of waiting. after that my case was transferred in June 2013 to Chicago local office but since it's a busy office I didn't get an interview date until Nov 13. horrible I know. then the first thing she asked in the interview was so your husband was deported? oh no no no. he bought a ticket and went home. then she said well i'll make a decision on the case within 30 days. I had to go back twice and found out this stupid went on vacation. spoke to a manager (end of Jan)she called to tell me the interview person was requesting more info. wow. especially since she told me she had all the info she needed. now she wanted a dna test for husband and daughter...I feel your pain. and my husband is still not here!!!
