I130 ; Writ of Mandamus Filed

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am a USC who filled an I130 for my spouse in 9/2008. The case was transferred to the local detroit office in 6/2009 pending an interview an interview for myself, the petitioner. I contacted my senator in 10/2009 and was told I should have an interview by 1/2010. In 2/2010 I was told that they were so behind they don't even know when they will schedule my interview. I have sent in so much proof that we are married from pictures, airline tickets, financial documents that me being interviewed in the 1st place is ridiculous. My lawyer filed a Writ of Mandamus in the beginning of March. My lawyer has spoken to their lawyer and has told me that well have some significant info by the end of May. I thought they were supposed to give you an answer within 60 days? Can I file another info pass appointment? I am so sick of waiting for them to tell me to go ahead and start my life.

I'm not your lawyer but when you hire a lawyer to handle your case, it is customary to actually have your lawyer handle your case. That customarily includes discussions about any options for additional actions.

Oh yes, after the judge makes a ruling on the writ of mandamus he usually gives them 60 days to make a ruling. The problem is that just filing the court papers is not a hearing, those things take time. Welcome to the US judicial system. The Court has to give the defendant time to find the case and review it, then to make inquiries about why there is a delay. So although you did the right thing by filing don't expect an immediate answer.

I am with you on this and the delay is inexcusable. By this time I would be wanting answers also. But now you need to be patient and let your attorney do his job. Most of our legal system is the wheeling and dealing that goes on in the back rooms before the case ever makes it to court, that is why most cases are resolved prior to ever having a hearing.

Thanks for everyones comments. I have done everything in my power. All I can do is be patient and wait. Hopefully everyone that is in the same boat has some good luck. We all need it! I wonder what eventually get me any results? The writ of Mandamus I filed? The complaint I filed with the Ombudmans office? I'l have to wait and see. Does anyone think that making info pass appointments and having congressional representatives further look into the case, if it would be at all viewed in a negative light? Waiting and being patient is soo hard!
