Husband had interview today

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

He has to reschedule. He booked his medical appointment 3 weeks out as per Embassy rules and the doctor referred him to the psych due to a past crime. The first available psych appt. is today (same day as his interview, obviously). The embassy wants him to reschedule his visa interview once they have the results. Plus, they asked for my 2012 taxes although I haven't filed yet, I sent a recent (As of 10/31) paystub to him to bring AND my employer wrote and signed a letter stating my wages and my hours worked. But they still want my taxes. #######.

Anyway, I had prepared myself as best I could to accept that we wouldn't be able to file the 601 waiver until February. We are 10 days short of having been apart for 19 months now, and yet we still have another 3-7 months to go. This never gets easier.

How frustrating. Hang in there, though. We can only manage one part at a time. If he needs a psych evaluation first then focus on that and making sure that you guys get what you need from that doctor so you can carry on with the next steps! Good luck!

I got my tax info from Sallie Mae (for undergrad loans) so now I'm just waiting on my work tax returns which should be here any day. In the meantime though we're waiting on the medical/psych results. My husband met with the psych yesterday, explained everything behind the a&b charge. I'm positive my husband's name will be cleared and hopefully this only will strengthen our waiver to show that he ISN'T a bad person and the "crime" he was charged with was a mountain out of a mole hill. Unfortunately the psych has a ####### ton of cases but he said he'd work on getting ours out quick. It could take up to 10 days... we'll see. I'm hopeful for another mid-Feb interview and now I know what we're "missing" we're more prepared than ever and should get the go-ahead to file the i-601 based on accrued illegal presence and nothing more.

And thank you all for your well wishes and support!

Sorry to heard that ullnvrkno, I hope everything goes quick and easy on your case, I had my interview also in El Salvador on Tuesday, we had almost the same timeline, I was not approved neither because I was told that my case is going to be under administrative process.

So I guess we have to wait a little more, best of the luck.

No I don't have tattoos or any criminal or crime records, nothing.I guess is because is a stepson petition, or something like that, who knows

Did they say how long it would be? Were you missing documents? I don't understand why our embassy has to be so screwed up. I have known maybe ONE person who has gotten out of there without any problems. EVERYONE ELSE (this is like 10+ people) has had missing documents, been accused of being someone else [ie; wrong folder in interviewers hands], accused of having a drinking problem and issued a subsequent 1 year ban, etc etc...... IDGI.

Can't they accept the 2011 taxes? I thought that you just needed the previous year's taxes? Employers won't send out your W2s till the end of January so how can they ask for the 2012? My fiancee has her interview at the beginning of February I hope she will not have a problem because I only have my taxes for 2011. Good luck, keep on being strong and hopefully everything works out for you.

Taxes done. Medical results being sent this week.

Called the 646# to reschedule his appt yesterday -- tell me why the first available 2nd interview date is mid-March??? ES says "if you have an appt, for example, on 2/12 and you cancel, that spot doesn't become available to other people. It stays open." ####### IS THE POINT?!

Husband had interview 3/15 -- we were put in administrative processing because they wanted to review his criminal background but "Didn't have time" due to "the ridiculous amount of people waiting for an interview and the little number of officers" ............... so we were in AP for 3 days. Status on CEAC changed to "refused" on the 19th of March and our waiver was sent out on the 21st. Reached lockbox on the 22nd. We were refused because he was here without papers for over a year -- which, I knew was going to happen.

Now we wait for the waiver...
