Hello everyone, I am in the military and currently deployed my fiance and I have been waiting now for several months for an interview date. I am due back to the U.S. in mid March and its getting quite close to that now and there is still no contact back from USCIS or anything. Im wondering if there is a certain number that I could call or something to ask what the status is and when abouts it will be that we will get our date and what not. As many of you probably are or were at one time we are getting tired of waiting. Any advice will help alot. Thank you.

First off, you need to keep your timeline up to date for people here to be able to help you :time: . You have no NOA1 date entered, but i guess that was a few days after you sent it in.

California are now adjudicating August petitions, so you should be hearing about your NOA2 sometime this month.. I hope that you have someone checking your mail back home, because USCIS are not the best at keeping filers status up to date on their website.

After you get your NOA2 then your fiancee has to do her filing of paperwork for the London Embassy. From NOA2 to getting an interview at London (providing packet3 is sent back in a timely manner) is 2-3 months.

You also may want to find out the status of your application through the Military Helpline. This is from the USCIS website;

Military Help Line

USCIS has established a toll-free military help line, 1-877-CIS-4MIL (1-877-247-4645), exclusively for members of the military and their families. USCIS customer service specialists are available to answer calls Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. (CST), excluding federal holidays.

After-hours callers will receive an email address that they can use to contact USCIS for assistance. Callers will receive assistance with immigration-related information, such as:

Tracking their Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.Notifying USCIS of a new mailing address or duty station.Checking the status of any other application or petition.Bringing a spouse, fiancé, or adopted child to the United States.Obtaining posthumous citizenship for a deceased member of the U.S. Armed Forces.Submitting an application for expedited processing.Members of the U.S. armed forces and their families stationed in the United States or overseas may access the help line using the toll-free number through their base telephone operator or using the Defense Switched Network (DSN).

I have never read of the embassy process being expidited, so you would be better of asking that to military helpline.

Happy you are moving forward, and good luck with the rest of your journey.

And i would just like to add a big Thank You to you, and all of your military colleagues for the amazing job that you do. Where ever that may be. :thumbs:

You can expedite all the way through, the USCIS and NVC. You have to request an expedite at each stage though. If the NVC approves it, its forwarded to the consulate.

For the US Embassy in London, once your case arrives, give them a call on the 0904 number - and request a CIU number. This is a specific number that you need to have an email responded to by the consulate. The CIU number goes in the subject line of the email. You can continue correspondence using that specific number, so theres no need to repeatedly call the toll number which is very expensive.
