Hi all,

I am new to the Visajourney.com and glad to find this website. I am looking forward to some information for my I-130 application. Hope anyone having same situation or knowledge can help me in this regard.

here's my situation:

Currently I am US LPR.

Applied I-130 for my wife (overseas) - December 2006

Priority date - January 2007

I haven't heard anything except receipt from USCIS since I filled my I-130 application. Whenever I check status of my case online through USCIS website, only thing I can see is currently they are processing I-130 filled on or before January 18, 2006. And I am seeing this information since more than a year. This doesn't tell my when my case will be touched.

My questions-

1. Is there anyone (LPR) who filled I-130 for spouse which is not approved yet.

2. Does anyone have any idea how long it's gonna take more?

3. I also heard about filling case with CIS Ombudsman. Does anyone have any idea about filling case with CIS ombudsman? ie. who can file a case with CIS ombudsman or what are the requirements?

4. Contacting local congressman can help in my case?

Please share your knowledge/experience. I will highly appreciate. Since I am having hardship with my lonely journey in USA.

Thank you and have a nice day !

You didn't mention what country!

http://travel.state.gov/visa/frvi/bulletin...letin_4406.html

Looks a like about 5 years from your date of filing. If you can get your US citizenship you can speed things up.


K1 denied, K3/K4, CR-1/CR-2, AOS, ROC, Adoption, US citizenship and dual citizenship

!! ALL PAU!

I am assuming you filed in Vermont.

I filed in California in Dec 2005 when i was an LPR and until now the priority date is not current. It takes a while. I know how you feel. I was so frustrated back then. So I filed for US Citizenship 90 days before my 5th year so I can upgrade my husbands petition. I believe that's the fastest route. I became a citizen in Sept'08 and now we are almost done with the petition process.

Good luck and dont lose hope.

Thank you peters, Haole, Jonah for all your reply.

This immigration law really makes people's life miserable. A student's dependent gets visa easily but LPR dependents is not allowed to visit his/her spouse in the USA. Hope Obama's administration does something for LPR to unite their family.
