Response From TSC via Senator

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So my fiancé and I have just passed the 6 month wait at TSC, 185 days today and we thought why not give contacting my fiancés senator a go, worth a shot. We heard back from the senators office with a response from TSC. I'm not entirely sure what to make of it so just looking to see if others who have contacted their senator in regards to their case waiting patiently at TSC, have either received a similar reply and if they received their approval some time after. The letter went as follows;

"Greetings,

Thank you for Thursday June 11th 2015 email on behalf of your constituent xxxx regarding form I-129f petition for fiancé.

According to USCIS records this case is pending review with an officer. Once completed a decision will be made.

Thank you for your inquiry and please do not hesitate to contact us again if you have further questions regarding this case.

Texas Service Center, Congressional Liaison."

This letter also had my A number on (which I know get assigned pretty early on) but still good they at least did that haha :D

But from what I've interpreted from the letter, it's somewhere in a pile on someone's desk and nothing about being stuck in background checks so I'm hopeful it at least passed that (which it should!). So if those of you out there who contacted either TSC or your senator have any input on whether this is good or bad I'd really appreciate hearing your thoughts.

I don't have much hope for it meaning anything other than keep waiting but if you don't stay positive during this wait then who knows what would happen. I just keep telling myself that it's coming, any day now until who knows Ha!

Thanks for reading anyway :) just thought it'd also be helpful to share experience and in fact TSC does respond at least. Only took 19 days for them to reply.

It is in process and there is nothing out of the ordinary. That's how you should read the response from the Senator's office.

I think it's good you got them to take look at your case by using your Senator to make contact. I did the same thing when I saw the potential long wait at TSC. I knew a lawyer who was an acquaintance of Senator Harry Reid here in NV and he made a call and sent off my letter documenting my concerns. We got a similar response from TCS to the Senator staffers. However, we believe that the fact that TCS had to find our case to check on it did move it along quicker than it would have on it's own. See the timeline below we were approved in 3 days from contact.

03-05-15 : Mailed Letter to Senator

03-10-15 : Received Senator Response

03-13-15 : NOA2 Received

​I've followed the progress of the other filers for Dec that were with me and some have only just recently been moved forward to NVC stage. So we are firm believers that the squeaky wheels occasionally get the oil. Hopefully you hear good news soon!
