Pending I-751

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am completely lost and confused. I filed joint I-751 on April 15th, 2012 (Vermont Center). On december 19th, 2012, I received a RFE and submitted the addotional document on March 1st, 2013. By May 2013, I realized that I did not get any feedback and contacted them (05/06/13), they replied to me 2 days letter to inform that my case was transfer to the local Office ( Dallas, TX) and that I have been RANDOMLY selected for an interview which just confused me as I received a RFE. Then on May 27th, I went to USCIS to stamp my passport and asked if they have any udate and all he could told me was that my file was there, awaiting for an interview date. I contacted them in July and all they could say was that my case was in suspence until a date for interview is available. I don't know what to do anymore, I wnat to apply for citizenship, but my attorney told me not too. How lond would it take them to schedule me? Is it a random selection? Am really confused....

Random selection is not new.

By the way I know of someone who randomly gets selected at airport for search almost on regular basis due to his skin color and some poor white guy before or behind him gets selected randomly, because they wanted this to look really random. May be the skin color equivalent in this case could be the RFE.

There is nothing else you could do except to get your passport stamped and wait patiently for the so called interview.

I am not sure why your attorney advised you not to apply for Citizenship. Let's know the reason, if any.

He said that they will not approved N400 of my case is pending so it will be a waste of money so I should wait. Also read some post where poeple get scheduled in a timely manner and they were saying that it is not normal to have a long wait like mine which just confused me...

Also your case is not regular. If I am right I read in another thread that you got married 10 years ago and have 3 kids but had to remarry again, as your African marriage was not recognized or something like that. Your is really unique case.

Yes but we knew we had to remarry in the US or any other place as it was a traditional wedding we had. My husband was born here, but we are from the same country and he grew up there like me. We came here to study and decided to stay. so when we came we got married and filed as you guys did and filed. There is no proof of previous marriage it's more like an engagement with a big celebration so we just told them that we did a traditional engagement there which was not a problem. My first interview last 5mn, she did not ask us any question and spent most of the time looking at the pictures as she has never seen a traditiona engagement and was just amzed... I don"t think that it"s different than anyone that get married here. Some people has children before marriage and long engagement....

You are right but it depends on those guys understanding. Let's hope you get your local center interview soon.
