hi all, im new here and need some help and advice...i got married in jan 2010 and applied for my husbands visa in march of 2010..the petition got approved and my husband got his interview date in June 2011 (after 15 months since date filed), but just 2 weeks before his interview his co sponsor refused to sponsor him n requested his documents back...i was so worried and stressed coz it was just 2 weeks before his interivew and didn t kno from where to get another sponsor however in teh process of returning his documents we got into a family dispute and one of their family members had sent an email to the embassy in regards to my husband so i dont know what she exactly wrote besides that they no longer wish to sponsor....however i did manage to get another co sponsor and send in time for his interview...at the time of the interview he submitted new documents of the new sponsor and the consulate officer returned the other ones and had that email infront of him...and then another issue arised with our marraige certificate needed notarization...we had gotten married in pakistan but my husband lives in afghanistan...so the consular wanted it notarized in the country we got married..so there was a whole issue on tat which took us 4 months from the time of his interview and so we ended up makin a new marriage certificate in afghanistan. we submitted the documents in october 2011 and now he is in Administrative processing....its been 6 months already and havent heard anything yet.... i sent emails and call dept of state and i hear the same thing that we are in AP...

so im really worried and i really miss my husband so much i dont kno wat to think...i get mixed feelings tat why its takin long coz of the relative email or the marriage cert or if its just in reg background check...does anybody have any idea or know if theres anything i can do bout it which i kno is nothing but mayb some of u can share ur experiences with me. i was thinking of contacting the state congressman but dont kno how to go bout that either....please helppp me....and pray for me as well tat my husband gets his visa soon....

thanx =(

It has been 5 months of AP

Do you know if it is Mandatory Administrative processing or

Internal Administrative Processing?

Have you called DOS-Department of State? 202-663-1225. Press 1 then press 0 to speak to a visa specialist to ask what ap it is

If it is Mandatory then it is usually name checks and can take 2 weeks to 2 years

If it is Internal AP it is done at the embassy and they are checking your name, background, paperwork and possibly relationship. It can take 2 weeks to years also.

Get your congressman involved now. They cannot make AP go faster but it is nice to have someones name on your file as it goes thru AP

Good Luck

You have to ask the specific question.....

Is it MANDATORY AP?

they will say yes or no

If they say no then you ask

Is it in Internal Administrative Processing

You have to ask the right question to get the truth

They will always says it is being done in Kabul. The file NEVER leaves the embassy. So, please understand they are just playing word games with you.

Never ask is it being done at the embassy or in washington...

Just ask the question as I told you and you will find out the truth.

Is it Mandatory Administrative Processing?

They will say Yes or NO

If they say no then ask

Is it INTERNAL administrative processing

Call DOS every week

Contact your congressman

You will have to google it and put in Congressman for zip code xxxxx

Put in whatever your zip code is

you will find a congressman for your area.

then go to his/her website

then fill out the release form and write a very short story to them

My husband is Jordian. He had his CR-1 interview in October. He has been in administrative processing for over 5 months. I have not been able to get any further information. I would appreciate it if you could perform a congressional inquiry on our case.

Please call or email me with any questions or concerns

Thank you
