HI. im new to this site.i had my interview with the consulate of montreal in canada on november 15 2011. so they said i was elegible for a 601 waiver.my case is simple. i have no criminal records,im clean and the agent told us we dont need another interview.i sent my waiver packet on december 2011 with a personal check, so after 3 days they sent us back a letter saying they dont accept personal checks only money orders. so my husband delay in sendning the money, till february 24 2012 he sent the money order and arrives on february 27 2012. and the consulate of montreal took out the money on march 7 2012. and im still wating for my i 601 waiver to get approved or to receipt a receipt ,i only email the consulate of montreal on april 16 2012 and they answer me on april 24 2012 they said : Yes we did indeed receive the money order. Waiver has was sent to USCIS for processing. Once approved you will receive the notice by mail and we will then notify you shortly afterwards by mail.

Hi, welcome to Visajourney.

Well, seems like all you have to do now is waiting for the waiver to be approved. Mine was taking 7 months (yeah that was forever).

The US Embassy called me once it was approved. They do it both ways though, calling and emailing for the approval notice.

Hope yours won't take as long as mine, good luck :)

The wait would be unbearable but it'll be worth it. It strengthens the love, it attaches you even more to each other, it shows how your man would do whatever it takes to be with you, that he will never give up on you because he LOVES you!! All the waits, stresses, tears, heartaches, all the miserable feelings you feel along the way will be paid off once you get what you've been hoping for...oh and WITHOUT PRAYERS? will be like trying to start a fire with water, JUST WON'T WORK!
