Hi every body

sometimes it's insane to keep venting and complaining about individual case. I know that and i feel shame about it. But it's something that drive me and my fiancee crazy.

our petition got approved on December 2nd 2014, it was a great news after waiting for 175 days. then the huge surprise has started. it's been now for 85 days and our file is in somewhere out there and I think it's got tired and decided to take his leaves to go to rest in the Canaries, why not? of course I mean our file!!!

2 months of trying every kind of requests, ombudsmen, calling senators, calling congressmen, hiring lawyer and of course keeping calling on both of them USCIS and NVC and we ended up with this statement:

IT'S ODD, IT'S REALLY ODD. thanks for letting us to know it's odd.

USCIS kept saying that on December 5th they sent our file out to the department of state,......... GOD JOB!!!

NVC kept saying that they haven't received the file yet,....... mmmm ATA BOY!!!

congressmen, senators and everyone with authority promised that they WOULD help us,...... EXCELLENT!!!

to be honest I think it's done and no one wants to have responsibility.

it's only 2-3 weeks for all people to have done with NVC, for us it's been for 13 weeks till now.

BTW everyone we tried to contact congratulated us for our petition being approved, Hilarious!!!

now we need answers. All we want is to know where on earth our file is??

if someone has answers, we will really appreciate that.

I have a similar problem.

USCIS approved my petition on january 5th but so far nothing from NVC... And for my surprise after 51 days they tell me that my case haven't been in the building yet to be scanned that I should contact USCIS. When I call USCIS they say they don't have jurisdiction over my case anymore, that now it is up to NVC... fu%#k me right?!

CSC used to have these kind of troubles with NVC, but it's strange because TSC used to send off the file immediately and NVC receives them and sends them out in 2-3 weeks

we are the only exception of TSC and I don't know why!!!!

And the problem is.. nobody knows anything!! So I wonder if they actually lost my case and I will have to send it all again... that will be a big step back =/

It's not stuck in between, it's stuck at USCIS. Many people here in VJ have experienced the same thing lately. First they're told you need to wait for 30 days for USCIS to even send their approved petition. Then 6 weeks, then 90 days.. It's insane and no one knows exactly why they take that long to send it.
