Filed: AOS (apr) Country: Mexico
well, I did file back in April 2007 :blush: I should have got a decision of any at least by now.. I'm going to consultation today to hire an immigration lawyer (or a team) to help make a decision for my case.. yeah, so I'm really jealous of the Adjustment of Status people.. they can still see their spouse everyday.. I even told USCIS if it happens that way I don't care if they take 5 years to do Adjustment, as long as we can be together..

I don't know if it's just China that has security check delays. My husband is from Mexico and we're on year 5 of the name check. But you're right, it wasn't as bad for us since we only had to wait 8 months for the fiance visa; the longer wait has been with AOS. We spend approx. $700/year to renew the EAD and AP, but at least he's here.

I hope things clear up for you both soon. It's hard being apart, especially with an ocean to separate you.

Summer 2001--we met in Manzanillo, Mexico

10/02--129F submitted (We had 1 RFE)

7/03--Interview in Ciudad Juarez


4/2/04--AOS submitted

8/23/04--Interview in Chula Vista, CA (approved pending name check)

5 EADs, 3 APs, multiple Senators' inquiries and infopass appts, 2 AOS biometrics,

and one move to Seattle later...

3/3/08--AOS Biometrics renewal in Seattle

6/9/08--10 year green card arrived in the mail. My husband is no longer in immigration limbo and is a realio, trulio permanent resident! It says he's been a resident since 04/17/2008.

1/17/11--Apply for Citizenship
