NVC Status = "At NVC" for 3-months now.

Hello,

Three months ago I received notification stating "The petition is waiting for an appointment to be scheduled at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in YEREVAN, ARMENIA. When an interview appointment is scheduled, the petitioner, principal applicant, designated agent, and attorney of record (if applicable) will be notified". No action has been taken since. The embassy does not have the case or recognise the case number. The status on the NVC website simpily says "At NVC".

I've tried calling them, but every time I get a recording saying they are busy, try again later.

My attorney says "I seriously recommend that you contact your local congressman / senator (for your US address) and ask them to intervene on your case. Every politician has an immigration liaison.".

I'm at a loss. All I want to do is go home. I'm stuck here in Armenia with my wife and our twin sons (US Citizens) until she gets her visa. I've read seemingly a million threads, and nobody else seems to be having the same problem as me.

Desporate for a solution... suggestions?

Be persistent when calling. I started calling at 7am today, 20 calls got the busy signal, finally got the menu and then the call dropped. Then another 5 calls before I got the menu again. I've heard calling first thing or at the very end of the day is when you're most likely to get through without too much effort.

If after you talk with NVC and there's no help, I'd definitely be talking to your congressman. Immigration has to respond to them within a couple of days.

So they said our interview is scedguled for July 30th, and it was just scedguled yesterday. So almost another 2 months, then I can take my family home! All and all, this has been a rediculasly long process. When I started I was told 6-9 months. I started this process in January 2014, so if her visa is issued in the begining of Augest the whole process will have taken 1 year and 8 months. And I'm a natural born US Citizen with 2 citizen children with my Armenian wife.

Yea my case has been close for 20 days now and they have mention the same old generic respond "case is being schedule at the consulate in XXXX country" .

This system is so screwed up where they cater to the illegals and leave the legal processing in the back burner.

Very frustrated......

Yeah, it's frustrating. I understand that it's the tourist season. But. Why should they get priority? I started this process a year and a half ago. Took 3-months to get an interview date that's 2 months after getting the date, so 5 months wait for an interview, that's absurd. Meanwhile, tourists can file and scedgule an interview online for next week. Seems a little backasswards.
