Waiting On Decision...Approx Wait Time?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello...

Back in October I sent in all of the paperwork for my in-laws. We received a request for additional information saying they didn't receive the original birth certificate of the petitioner...my husband. I know I sent it, but perhaps it was misplaced. No biggie, I guess. So I sent it in again to them. They said they received our request for evidence on November 13th and it's now in review. Ok, great. It says we should see something within 60 days...so that puts us at around January 13th. Plus with the holidays and everything, I'm thinking there are extra days in there they are not working, etc. I keep checking the status of both cases online and they both remain at request for evidence review. My husband and my in-laws are freaking out...I'm sure everything is fine and keep telling them...60 days, holidays, etc! Chill! :) Is there anything else I can do? Or should be doing? They've already done their biometrics and gotten their driver's licenses and such, so yay! But if there's anything additional, I'd appreciate a heads up :)

Thanks in advance!

Shannon

I was RFE'd in October and I submitted the paperwork to USCIS on Dec 5th, I was approved on the 22nd and have since had many bouncing updates on the 24th, 26th, and yesterday I got a tracking number for my cards delivery. Which, according to that, means it should be in my hands tomorrow.

It seems they are working over the holidays, I hope you get a resolution as speedily as I got mine :)
