advice and frustration

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Romania


My son's (who I've been assisting in this process {he served in Afghanistan earlier this year}) fiance visa package was sent in early this year to the Vermont center. They received it Feb 29. Later on, probably in May, they sent a form letter - he had forgotten to sign a form. Sent it back, although late, and they received it June 19. I understand that once his package was found lacking the signed form, they probably stopped work on it, and (hopefully) re-started when they received the form June 19. But, here it is 6 months later, and he has heard absolutely nothing. The website still says that work has resumed as of June 19. He has not received anything, no phone calls, nothing. His fiance is a Romanian citizen, legally living and working in London England. She has heard nothing either, and getting extremely frustrated, as are we.

He is in contact with one of our federal senators who is now looking into the situation also.

Any advice?

Welcome to visajourney. Unfortantly your at the VCS (vermont cervice center) and that place is slower then a 7 year itch. I think I have been seeing around 6 to 12 month approvials from there. Hang in there, he should be approved in a few more weeks to months. Your on the right track with calling your senator. Good luck.

It is unfortunate what is happening there but it seems to happen every once in a while.

I believe I have heard though that if you do not get a reply to your RFE sent back in within a certain amount of days (which I am sure you have already passed) you are allowed to have a service request placed with the USCIS call center agents to find out what's going on. I would definitely go ahead and call the customer service plus involve your congressman and/or senator!!! Good luck.

Welcome to VJ.

There are security checks at every stage of this process. Any one of which can hold you up for any amount of time. It could be something like this holding your son's petition up.

Contacting your rep is a great start. You can also contact the ombudsman if your case is past processing dates listed on the uscis website and you can't get any answers.
