Probably not going to do any good. USCIS will just say call back at the 6 month mark.

People do travel. There's nothing that legally prevents a beneficiary from entering the US while paperwork is in progress, provided they can enter the US for a visit in the ordinary way.


I'm a dual US/Hungarian citizen (both by birth; Hungarian citizenship verification TBA), and my husband is a dual British/Irish citizen (by treaty) from Northern Ireland. We are atheists.

I corrected my mistake on my timeline, i filed from usa. Congressmans assistant was 45 minutes late to interview, so naturally I was pretty pissed off. First she tells me It normally takes a year, than says she cant do anything. I show some pictures and explain I've been married already 2 years and the reasons to go with that. i showed western union transactions and my passport stamps to show how often i was going . Also gave copies of my grandmothers medical report from having a stroke. She said she normally wouldnt intervene but would try to help me. She called uscis and confirmed it was in chicago. She told me she would call chicago but said that they were the worst at picking up the phone. Sure enought they did not pick up phone. Proceeded to write email to chicago office liason for congress and explain my situation and asked for a prompt response and to please expidite the case. she told me normally she will get a response to the email within 1 week, she said she wouldnt pressure them right away but if she diddnt hear from them in a month that she would file complaint and they would have 2 days to respond. in fact it is possoble they will respond with a generic script. She explained that it was her opinion that i would be called in for an interview because the file was in chicago. says its becoming more and more common for the interview here. all in all I cant say I'm excited but she did change her tone and seemed to be genuinily interested in helping me. gave me copy of email she sent and a buisness card and took down my email. have a gooooood dayyyyyyy

Yeah people do travel ,but for example for ukrainian citizen theres no way to get tourist visa . i have never been to usa and i should wait whole process in my country while my husband live in usa. i think US gov should work first on the petitions for people who is separeted while whole process, and have no chance to live together.

Your husband could live with you, no?

That's what we did.

no my husband work in usa and he must be there for his job he can't live in ukraine. he is coming as often as he can but it is very hard.

Well you aren't forcibly separated, he could quit his job. I make immense sacrifices to be in Denmark and would a million times prefer to be in America but I stay here for love.

Ok, well that is fine, but it is still a choice and frankly, I'd rather live in the Ukraine but that is a conversation for another day. I took my daughter with me to Denmark. There are very few places in the developed world I'd turn down if it meant getting out of here one day sooner.

Daughter also have mother who will not let her move anywhere... well subject closed. i just think it is will be fair if they will work first on the cases of people who is separeted and have no chance to live together until getting the visa
