VSC is down to a trickle of approvals a day. With just 6 days left for May 2013, we will not see OCT or NOV 2012 completed. They have moved our 5 month goal to "Oct 15" At this rate we cannot complete 2012 filers in the near future...the backlog will grow rapidly. NOV 2012 will not be completed for another 3-4 weeks or more at this rate.
A 99.5% approval rate is UNHEARD OF. And what is worse is that CSC has approved 20-30 A DAY, while VSC remains at THREE approvals a day. It's clear that CSC has moved their DACA files to another site, but VSC is processing these.
I urge all filers both VSC and CSC to contact their elected officials and scream about this broken system for K1 filers. I am meeting with my Congressman next week and will share data from both centers, the only way to make real change is to tackle this problem head on and ask for fairness to people who are following the law and attempting to bring their loved ones here. I vow to not stop screaming after I get my approval...I will continue for a permanent change in this system. Can you please agree to do the same? Grassroots is what our strength is.
My husband and I filed ROC on May 15 and today (May 22) got NOA with the green card extension. However my husband (who is Active Duty) received orders to relocate to Hawaii. He already reported to his duty station and I will follow on in a couple of weeks once the paper work is complete. We sent ROC to the Vermont office because at that time we both were residing in MD. Now I have a couple of questions:
1. Will relocation impact what office my application is processed through? Obviously I will do the change of address form, will this result in the ROC petition being moved to California Center?
2. If I receive a biometric appointment scheduled to take place in MD will I be able to reschedule for Hawaii (this is in case the appointment date will be after the date i'm moving)? If so how do I go about rescheduling it? Or can I try for a walk-in? If so how do I go about that?
I really am posting this in order to get some ideas and comments from people on this site. A friend of a Friend of a friend, (LOL), has been here since 2010 illegally. Now she fell in love with a guy who recent (about 6 months ago) received his citizenship after they got married. Now she has begun I believe the CR-1 Process. I was wondering what are her chances of getting her green card given the circumstances. My knowledge tells me that she is screwed assuming that the govt doesn't make exceptions for the rule. She will have to return to her country and therefore receiving a X year ban for overstaying and her husband will be devastated But I wanted to ask you guys who might have more experience in this area what you think. Thanks for your time. All post relating to the subject is welcomed.
The beneficiary's current passport is about to expire and needs to be renewed. An ePassport is going to take a lot longer to receive while a regular passport (without an electronic chip in it) can be prepared in a couple of weeks and,therefore, is a preferred option for us. Do the embassies care which passport they have to place a visa into? The interview will eventually be in Moscow. Also, could there be any other problems with an old-style passport during immigration into the US? Thanks to everyone who can answer and help us with this!
