This is crazy

This just crazy and complete BS. My case has being processing in Vermont since March 8th,

for the last 3 weeks they were telling me it was in security check and today I was told by

Vermont that they halted processing of all cases because of this new IMBRA law. Can anybody

confirm that. I am form the same country and city as my fiancee and we know each other for

more than 10 years, how the hell this new law is concerning us.

It appears this new law will be affecting A LOT of people, not just you and the VSC. This certainly explains why no NOA2s have been coming out of VSC lately. :( Hang in there!

This is just a guess and feel free anyone to shoot me down - but i imagine they'll be halting new case reviews for a bit to look over and re-clear the ones that are coming back for additional checks as some of those people already had interviews scheduled, medicals done, etc. Again, that's just a guess... :(


And so he did what countless punk-rock songs had told him to do so many times before: he lived his life

10/07/2006 WEDDING DAY!

11/14/2006 AOS packet made it to 'the box' after being overnighted.

12/02/2006 Paul had biometrics

12/14/2006 AOS Forwarded to CSC AND AP Application approved.

01/17/2007 First touch of 2007 at CSC

01/20/2007 Touched AGAIN (also the 18th) come on...

February: Oops, RFE for a REGISTERED marriage certificate. Oops! Overnighted it.

02/28/2007 Paul gets email letting us know his GREENCARD is on it's way! It's done...for now!

03/09/2007 Paul's greencard arrives. And breathe...

We began with mailing the I-129 in on February 27, 2006 so the whole process took us approx. one year.

Good luck out there!

Gary - god bless your optimism I hope you are right, but I suspect it will depend on which SC you are going through. I will be amazed knowing the USCIS if this does not cause some delays!

That may be true for the moment. I just saw another person from Texas SC got their NOA2 today. So things are moving in at least Texas and they have the same problem as the rest of the SC.

IMBRA relates to more than just the use of marriage brokerage services. It also relates to the multiple filing of petitions. In that aspect, every new petition will subject to checks on the petitioner for previous filings.

FYI

If you go to the USCIS web site and do a search for IMBRA, there's a 5/5/06 Memorandum issued by USCIS on IMBRA.

Not much info; only looks like they're starting to come out with guidelines.

If I remember correctly, the memo says forthcoming will be more guidelines.

I think I kinda have to agree with Joey on this. Vermont was processing those approvals sooooooo fast so the NOA1 date on all those approvals was after March 6. Now...they have to go back and re-process those cases since most of them will be re-called for the futher security checks. The reason CSC/Texas is still moving is because they are just now processing cases that have a NOA1 receipt BEFORE March 6.

I hope this makes sense......I am sure they will begin processing these cases soon but if you put things into perspective, Vermont folks are now in the same waiting timeline as CSC folks........which I think is only fair............(I am sorry...don't shoot me!!!!!!!) :blush:

Really though....one processing center should not be any faster than the next because there is not any equitibility in that..........

Sorry guys............. :(

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

Sorry, I have to agree too. Vermont has been the one service center that flies the petitions through while everyone else at the service center wait for weeks and weeks. Everything should really be the same across the board at the centers.
