No touches in almost 3 months for k-3. Over 4 months 1-130

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if it might be time for me to schedule some sort of appointment to talk to someone about my case, or if I should continue waiting it out. I realize it is not uncommon for these cases to take upwards of 6 months to get approved and if that is the case then that is ok too, but should I perhaps be a bit more proactive?

Has anyone who has had a meeting with infopass concerning their case actually found out anything useful or had any movement on the case as a result of this meeting?

Also what exactly does a memeber of congress do when they look into these cases and is that route worth taking?

I can't really comment or relate to your case as I have filed the I-129F. I just wanted to let you know that proactive gets my vote! going to an infopass appointment can't hurt anything and at least gives you a chance to know something. It's better than doing nothing in my book. Have you called the service center to politely inquire? I wouldn't contact an elected official until something is for sure out of sorts. But sometimes depending on the case worker, you get someone who is nice enough to inquire for you. If you ask honestly and sincerely, they shouldn't have a problem with it.

Thanks for your input. I have been waiting for the 90 day time period before inquiring about the K-3. I honestly haven't really been too concerned with the 1-130, seeing as the K-3 visa will be the one the most likely is granted first.

I am leaving to go to South Africa from November 16th through December 28th and am hoping to have an approval by that time. As each day passes, however, it seems less and less likely that is going to happen.

It appears that being proactive indeed helped your case AndyMisiu. I am glad to see you were able to get things together with the help of your local law-makers.

Libersolis I think we should both get on the ball and contact our representatives as domini lonka did. I called as soon as my 90 day period was over and I was told the same thing as before that they are still in processing bla bla same generic answer that Id have to wait that I should wait 6 months now and not 90 days. =0( im like yeah wait 6 months when some one got approved in 35 days!!!! made me want to pull my hair out when the uscis person told me to wait 6 more months.i mean they wont tell you if everthing is ok with your application or what is going on. i spent hours on hold for the 2 mins that they talk to me and for them just to tell me the same generic answer as in the past. Even after 90 days one would think that we are are entitled to a little bit more info on our case but that is not so. That is why at this point im going on the proactive side with the congresssman. Im going to write up my letter today.

a couple of years ago, mine went about 7 months without being touched.

We called the Senator's office and spoke with the immigration liason, they were very helpful, and a lot more understanding than USCIS mis-information line.


divorced - April 2010 moved back to Ontario May 2010 and surrendered green card

PLEASE DO NOT PRIVATE MESSAGE ME OR EMAIL ME. I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT CURRENT US IMMIGRATION PROCEDURES!!!!!

When I hadn't heard anything for 60 days after my citizenship interview, I scheduled an Infopass appointment. Two days later my approval letter was mailed out. Of course this is not proof that the Infopass caused anything - but I thought maybe it got somebody's attention :) I didn't even have to go the InfoPass appointment.

What exactly were they able to tell you and were they able to make any progress on your case?

Yeah I am hoping that happens to me. Perhaps USCIS says "Hey this person isn't totally clueless about how we do things."
