October Filer: Extended Review

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We received our NOA-1 on October 30th. About 2 weeks ago we filled out the "outside normal processing times" form. Today we received an email saying that there is a delay in our processing time due to it being under extended review and that we essentially have nothing to do but wait.

Does anyone have any more details about extended review? When I google, all the results I get are about extended review when people do AOS.

I imagine it's related to my fiance's (petitioner) criminal record which is all older misdemeanors and doesn't have anything that seems to get an automatic denial like illegal drugs.

There is a domestic violence charge whose backstory I am fully aware of (and wish my fiance would've fought it years ago because it would've been dropped), but my understanding is that in this situation they send the beneficiary a letter or something to let her/him know about the criminal record involving domestic violence. Would this end up sending a case to extended review?

I am really sad.

Just received the same thing yesterday for our K1 visa. Our lawyer has not really explained what this means, I hope he does today. Me and my fiancee don't have any criminal background but it may have to do with the fact that she previously filed for an F1 visa twice and was denied twice.

Have you gotten the NOA2 yet?

We are also bummed out beyond belief. Have you done the Infopass or reached out to the Ombudsman yet?
