I601A Process?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I tried Google but want to get some info from people who have actually gone through it. This is for my dad. I became a US Citizen back in March and then in June we filed I130 & I485 for my mom and I-130 for my dad, through a lawyer. Just last week (Monday) my mom got her I-130 & I-485 approved notice in the mail and by Friday had her Permanent Resident Card in Hand :) Still waiting on my dads I-130. But trying to look ahead and hoping it also gets approved, wondering the 601A process for him would be. One thing that I have not found was what happens after the interview. Do they let you go to the interview and return? How soon is someone able to come back to the US after the interview or do you have to wait or what happens?

From my understanding of the process, largely through a friend's experience, she had to go to Juarez for the interview, give up her passport, and wait in Mexico around 10 days for the visa to be issued. I'm not entirely sure exactly when her lawyer submitted the 601a waiver, whether it was before the interview, at the interview or after it.


That was some fast processing on your mother's application.

I'm currently in the process for my husband we have been waiting since June 6 2018 for an interview in Juarez.  Once we go to Juarez for interview my husband will be denied and than we file the 601A and the 212 waivers and by the looks of that it looks like we will be waiting for about 18 months to get a decision for the waivers.  Than you go back to Juarez for another interview.  We are working with a lawyer for all this process.
