Hello, I am in waiving process for 212e and my case shows DOS has sent favorable recommendation May 08 2015 but I haven't received anything by mail yet(Jun 01,2015). I contacted them by fax and email but I didn't get any response. I wanna apply for green card by marriage with a US citizen and waiting for this waiving process. Do you have any idea about my case?

Thank you

As far as I remember, DOS sends directly to USCIS, current processing time for I 612 cases is 4 months after the favorable recommendation is received.

I think at this point you (or lawyer) are supposed to have received in the mail (1) copy of the letter from DOS and (2) notice from USCIS that they received the letter from the Department of State.

Did you receive the notice of receipt from USCIS? While not strictly allowed by law, people say that USCIS accepts AOS petitions with pending I-612 based on No Object Statement. I forgot the links but you can find it yourself via google. I've heard people have been succesful doing that, but it isn't recommended unless you have a reason to hurry. USCIS can deny the I-485 and then you'll be out $1000.

I'm doing this right now, assisted by our lawyer. The I-485 form asks if you have finished the waiver process and you say "No". Along with the AOS, we added a copy of the I-797 notice for the I-612 and a letter explaining the situation. We're still early in the process so I can't tell for sure if this will work, but so far we didn't get any denials or RFEs.
