4 days away from 1 year NOA1 anniversary

Never thought it would take this long, but it's going to be 1 year since we sent in for my husband's green card. NOA1 date May 1, 2012 transferred to CSC May 25th, 2012. I'm so frustrated I don't know what to do about this anymore. We asked our representative for help, which was a waste of time. They've had our papers/info for 1.5 months and NO word back from them. I even called them and the guy who answered said they have an imigration liaison on our case and we should hear from them "today or tomorrow"... 2 weeks later, not a word.

We put in 2 service requests, the first one answered with "we'll get to it when we get to it" and the 2nd one said it's currently beind adjudicated. However we got that 2 weeks ago and haven't heard a thing about it yet. Infact, his case hasn't been "touched" since December 11, 2012 when we had our address updated!!!!! It would be nice to know that they're at least looking at it! Do they only have 1 person looking at AOS applications at the CSC or something?! And they can only do maybe 5 a day?! It's frustrating when people who have applied even this year have already gotten their green cards and ours seems to be lost in that black hole of the CSC.

Are there any more May 2012 filers out there? Or are we the last ones.... headbonk.gif

Contact your congressman and/or senators. We hadn't heard anything in almost 8 months but less than a week after our Senator Inquiry we got an RFE. I saw a July case too where the USCIS immediately looked at the application after a congressional inquiry. Worth a shot.
