Congressional Case Workers for my case

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Well, with my priority date of 5/5/07 (I-130) and no touches, no RFE's, i now have case workers from both my Senators and my Congressman. I also email the President and First Lady (email is free, why not). No one can yet tell me why my case is so far behind in background check, Dora and I already know in the end it will be clean.

But great news this morning, on webcam i asked Dora:

"Baby, what are you doing on Feb xx in the morning?"

"I am working baby."

"Shoot. Do you know of anyone else who can pick me up at the airport in Budapest?"

Dora completely fell out. My crazy ex-wife will watch my 3 kids while I visit Dora for a week. I don't see the end of my case w/ USCIS, but at least i know i will see Dora. AND SOON!

Peace be with you all,

-jamie

Two hundred and fifty days shows your determination and perseverance to be with your loved one. I hope the congressional help will bring quick results. Maybe you and VJ member gogo can communicate and help each other. Sorry to say he is in a similar situation.

Have a great trip.

edp333,

I am no different than you in devotion. My day begins with thinking of Dora and going bed as i fall to sleep, her name is the last thing that passes from my lips. Timelines mean nothing to how we feel of our soul mates.

I am almost 40, the father of 3 children and my 16 year marriage failed of my faults and the demons of my ex's chemical problems. To find a woman as Dora is unthinkable. She is a wonderful model of strong, intelligent and honorable femeninity. I would pass through the gates of hell for her. I know how fortunate i am to be granted a second chance to have an intact family.

I am curious, what is the status of your 130? Your timeline drops off in Oct. Otherwise, i pray that God strengthen and bless your love. One day your journey will end, and we all know, that darkness cannot exist in the light.

Peace to you,

-jamie

Jamie, the I-130 is being held for Adjustment of Staus, as is the standard procedure when petitioning for a K3. The K3 was forwarded to Manila and Meryll has an interview date on February 6. It has been 307 days since I last saw my wife.

Your story shows both humility and passion. The paragraph is well written and speaks so loudly that I will not try to add my thoughts.

I hope you and gogo both get an approval notice soon!! :thumbs:

Dearest Ed,

You and your wife are in my prayers, and wait in joyful hope for her interview. I can only imagine that you feel great excitement and also the lesser fears. I pray that the truth of your love may come quickly to an end after such a long journey.

I have read many of your posts and it is clear that you are a good man who tires to help others whenever he can. You are the type of guy that makes me proud to be a man. It is true, we men can do terrible things. But it is also true that we can to lovely things when we allow it.

Keep on going, brother,

-jamie

Update,

Both of my Senators and Congressmen have sent inquiries through "constituent services" to inquire what is going on with my delay (stuck in background check.) Furthermore, my family has also contacted their elected reps since Dora is now a relative.

I spoke w/ one of my case workers w/ Senator Nelson on the phone and he was cool. He told me that even though i KNOW my case is stuck in FBI, his first contact is with USCIS. I imagine that USCIS will respond "FBI has it, not us". Then he sends the whole inquiry to the FBI and they in turn must reply.

I do know that these numerous inquiries will at least get some attention to my case. My case worker told me that his experience is that a case like mine, (background checks) sometimes get put in the "difficult pile". Since production is most important, they crank out the "easy/normal" checks as fast as possible. Cases like mine sometimes get stuck in a different pile since it takes longer to clear a case like mine. Perhaps this is my situation and it may motivate the FBI to get mine processed. I'll keep you all posted.

Otherwise, i wish you all peace, strength and blessing from God.
