Thank you all !

Guys, CALLING WORKS!!!!

I called the USCIS this morning, and look, today approved biggrin.png I called about my situation (see my last post). And they told me I needed to wait 60 days exactly and then call back. I think they put all calls in the notes, and the officer looks at it. Because I am 99.999999% the approval today was because of the call. biggrin.png

Not complaining AT ALL THOUGH. innocent.gif

But one tip: call only when you are past or very close to the timeframe it is supposed to be. Not sending your app and calling the next day..
