Do not give up and keep on calling DOS for updates. When my husband was in AP we never heard anything other than no updates until they sent the letter for his returning to the embassy with his passport for adjudication. Sometimes they never have any updated notes on your case until the end of the AR/AP.

Everything I respond to is from personal knowledge, research or experience and I am in no means a lawyer or do I claim to be one. Everyone should read, research and be responsible for your own journey.

Called DOS yesterday...

they simply said that the only info they have is that our case is in AP...nothing else.


Be patient ! you just had your interview a week ago=) try to distract yourself and keep yourself busy w/ other matters though it is hard to =)

i'A you will hear something soon =)


Yesterday is history, Tomorrow's a mystery. Today is a gift; that'swhy they call it "the present".
