From AP because of 221g to Ready on CEAC

June 26, 2015: Interview date. Beneficiary was asked to submit more proof of relationship. Phone bills/records and money transfer receipt did not satisfy the consul. She was asked to submit Facebook (they met on FB) instant messaging logs with date stamps from September 2014 (when they met).

July 6, 2015: Was only able to print Facebook chat logs from January 2015 to present time. Facebook messages logs do not show anything before January of this year. She printed every FB chat logs they had from January (spent all day printing, equaled to 2 thick books) 2015 to present. Petitioner's local bank in the US let him add her on his bank account. He also gathered notarized letters from his pastor and 4 other close friends attesting to the relationship. He was able to get a letter from his insurance agent who stated that they cannot add her on his policy at this time since she is not a legal resident of the U.S. (duh!). These documents (FB chat logs, notarized letters from friends, bank form, insurance letter) were received by the embassy on July 6th.

July 8, 2015: CEAC shows "Administrative Processing" and July 8, 2015 as "status update date" and May 12, 2015 as "case creation date."

August 11, 2015: CEAC shows "READY...Your case is open. Please check your status after two business days via the CEAC launch page at https://ceac.state.gov/CEAC/." August 11, 2015 is both "case creation date and status update date."

I understand that CEAC status can change back to "AP" from "READY" and then "ISSUED." The petitioner's house burned down from Sunday night's terrible storm (Fire Department thinks it got hit by lightning). He really needs good news at the moment.

Am I correct to assume that soon his CEAC status will change to AP again, then to issued? Have you seen 221g cases on AP then to READY then to REFUSED?
