don't give up, don't ever give up!! I know it is easy to lose focus, and to lose heart. I'm looking at your time line now and things sure are dragging out for you. have you contacted the CSC or checked their processing timeline lately? That might give you some idea where things are.

Keep your head up though and remember what matters here and why you are doing this. You obviously love your fiance very very much, and in the end it'll all be worth it, and days like this just a distant memory.

Think of how much goodness awaits you! :)

This process is so hard-people have no idea what it is like to have your "life" in someone else's hands. It is extremely frustrating. I will owe all of my friends many pints when this process is over b/c I am driving them crazy.

keep your chin up :star:

you'll get good news soon!

well we heard from our congressman and it wasnt good news


According to the California Service Center, the file has been sent for "further processing". They said we could check again in 90 days. They are performing an in depth review of the petition, and could not give us a time-frame.

I wish I could give you a better response, but we cannot influence any decision made by the Agency. We will continue to check on the case for you.
