I have been eagerly checking the mail every day hopping of a letter from the USCIS.

Watching everyone else that filed in May receiving there approval started to worried me. In my head I kept on going over and over what could be the hold up “maybe I did not add enough proof to my folders. I should have added this or that to the files. Maybe they lost my files all together. “

Today I finally was put to ease and I am so happppy. It is funny because it was the first day I did not run to the Mail box when the carrier came by. Instead I was making a pumpkin pie. My hubby decided to check the mail out, returning with a big smile on his face. I knew then that it finally came.

I am approved. :D:dance:

To all those that are still waiting I hope yours comes soon. Good luck

K1 visa

K1 Visa process took about 1 year, got married on January 13, 2006.

Got my green card on October 5, 2006.

Removal of Conditions

September 15, 2008: I-751 package sent

November 1, 2008: Received NOA

Januar 13, 2009: Biometrics appointment in Buffalo

May 2009: Notice of case transfered to California

August 3, 2009: received RFE letter; sent in evidence 2 weeks later, USCIS confirmed reception

March 03, 2010: Filed form DHS-7001 with CIS Ombudsman, and contacted my local Congresswoman to try to get my case pushed through.

June 5, 2010: Letter from CIS Ombudsman telling me USCIS is not ready for a decision yet. They didn't give me a timeline for when to expect a decision... this is getting worst...

August 2, 2010: Infopass appointment for I-155 stamp in my passport. Agent who helped me is going to get my file from California and process it himself!

August 10, 2010: Email from my Congresswoman's office, USCIS still not ready for a decision, told to wait another 90 days. And email from agent at local office telling me that his request to get my file was denied by California...
