Getting ready to write my congressman.

Timeline

I would first call your congressman's office. They will likely have a liason that works specifically with visa issues. The person can help direct you in what to say and where to send, etc. I called my congressman's office and that is how I got in touch with the right people.

Just to note, that if you are still within six months, it's probably too soon for congressman-type action. I know it feels like a long time. But I'm going on 7 months, and there are many others who have been waiting longer. When I talked to my congressman's office, the liason told me that he had over 100 petitioners he was working with who submitted in June and May 07, who haven't gotten any word. (That was about 2 weeks ago).

Not trying to deflate you. I think we ALL feel what you're feeling. I'm just bracing you for the fact that you may not get much help if you're still under 6 months. I know, that sucks! But hey, it will come to an end soon.
