I751 still pending after 3 years...Is it possible to be not called for an interview even if you're told you're scheduled for one?

Hello friends,

My case has been pending since August 2014. I sent more than enough evidence to prove that my marriage was bonafide. Joint taxes, 401k, life insurance policies, lease, creditcard statements, health insurance cards, letter from employer stating wife as benefeciary for my 401k etc...i sent in more than the usual. I received an rfe dated feb 2015 saying my health insurance cards had no expiration date which was TOTALLY FALSE. I sent in more docs and i was told i'll be hearing back in 15 days. i called them after 20 days and i put in a service request after i spoke to a tier two officer. i was told i'll hear back within 30 days. i got a letter thin the time frame saying my case is in security checks for who knows what. I havent been arrested ever in my life. I pay my taxes and don't have any criminal record.

I put in two more service requests and everything i got was the same thing.."Pending security checks"

I scheduled an infopass and was finally told that i'm in line for an interview and we should be getting a letter within 30days with an interview date.

We havent received anything till date.

Is it possible that they'll just approve the case without an interview? or they are just buying more time with the interview?

Anybody have a similar experience? This whole thing is putting a strain on our marriage and making us argue a lot.

Name hits, past jobs, where you are from can cause additional and extensive

background cks , not just crimes here or immigration infractions causes these

checks....what country are you from & did you get your congress-person

involved to see if they can obtain the present status on your case. Theres a

reason for security cks, the US govt can scrutinize & find the brand cream in

When did they say you're in line for interview?

Have you thought about applying for US citizenship?

Spoke to the IO at the infopass and she said, filing for citizenship won't do any good. the I751 has to be approved first. although, i have read in other forums where people filed it any way. Clearly, i do not have the best of luck too...I spoke to a lawyer as well who advised us not to until i751 is approved

Yes but the application for citizenship is what can force them to adjudicate the ROC. 3 years is BEYOND RIDICULOUS! A new USCIS low (to me).

I agree. It's beyond ridiculous....I suspect they have lost my file and are making excuses. I wonder if anybody has experienced a similar situation

Filing the N-400 forces adjudication of the I-751.


I would have had my Congressman's office involved long before now.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

My health insurance card has no expiration date on it. I also sent EOBs that showed who went to a doctor and under whose name insurance was.

I'd be definitely filing for naturalization at this point - and would involve congressman or senator's immigration aide for assistance on this matter.

If you filed in August 2014 then that would make it two years, not three.

Still though, that's a long time for it to remain pending.

Your options:

(i) Contact one of your congressional representatives to enquire on your behalf.

(ii) Contact the CIS Ombudsman.

(iii) File for citizenship on an N-400. As others have said, this forces USCIS to adjudicate the I-751.

Personally, I'd do all three.

I've seen someone who waited 4.5 years on trackitt. Filed mid 2011, approved early 2016. That's the longest for me.
