Rant re USCIS being lazy pricks. Any suggestions?

So my wife care here via a K1 visa in May 2007. While living with my parents we filed for AOS from NJ in July 2007. I used my father as a household member (for sponsorship). They set our interview in NJ for November 2007, but right before that we moved to NY.

We went to the interview in NJ where the woman told us that everything is OK with our case, but because we moved and are not living with my father anymore we'd have to have him submit a co-sponsor application. She said she'd send our case to NY the same day and that they'd call us for an interview where we'll have to give them the co-sponsor form.

~2 months later we started wondering why we weren't hearing anything from the NY office and called the USCIS phone center. They told us they'd send some sort of a communication to the NY center to tell them to .. work on the case. Nothing came of this, of course. We called again and again until they told us that we should make an infopass appointment in NY and find everything out there.

We came with an infopass to the NY office, where they told us that they didn't have our case - it was still in NJ. They said that they couldn't do anything about it and that we'd have to go to the NJ office and tell them to transfer the case. We did that. Turned out that the friggin officer that told us she'd send our case out the same day... simply forgot about it. It lay there until late March. So then they sent our case to NY.

On April 1, 2007 our case arrived in NY (Garden City office). Two weeks later we went to visit them. They said they couldn't tell us anything because our case hasn't been assigned to an officer yet. We went a bunch of times after that, last time - 2 weeks ago. The case still hasn't been assigned to an officer. When I asked regarding their 90 days guarantee, the woman told me that some cases take longer than others. I asked how our case could be taking longer than others if they don't even know what the case is since they haven't assigned it to anyone... she didn't really have anything sensible to say regarding that and told us to wait.

We went to our local congress representative (Tim Bishop) a week ago. They asked us to fill our a form explaining our situation and told us the woman from their office who handles immigration affairs would call us in a few days. This was last Monday - a week ago. Of course no one called us.. No one seems to want to do anything. We'll call this woman tomorrow (Monday).

Does anyone have any suggestions regarding what we should do at this point? Everything just seems futile. It's a huge machine that just doesn't want to move...

Sadly you have done everything that should be done, infopass appointments, contacting your congressman. The only thing left is to keep on trying and bug them until they are fed up and start doing something, that or sue immigration bc the process has taken the quite a while.
