Hello VJ family,

happy new year!!

Am a little concered, as you can see from my timeline, i have been waiting for an interview date for over a year now. it ha been 3 years since i filed my VAWA, and only recently i stumbled across this article, as i always try to be up to date with current immigration news. Any thoughts on this? i also heard from some fellow friends that VAWA has been closed, since it has expired and if so, what happens to our petitions? any info would be greatly appreciated.

heres a link if you havent read about it already. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/02/violence-against-women-act-_n_2398553.html
