Urgent: Filed June 2017, still only receipt number

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts


I am a USC and my husband self deported the US after 20 years in America. Before leaving we filed the I-130 in June 2017. Up to now, nothing except a receipt number.We had planned to leave the country and 6-8 months we would have gotten the I-130 approved to be able to file the 601. Sadly it has been 17 long months and I have to return to the US. We had a lawyer who keeps saying the deportation prosecutor did something "dirty" with our file. He encourages us to file a new I-130-which we refuse to do . We don't want to be on back of this dreadfully long line again.


We are searching a new dedicated Paralegal or lawyer who truly knows how to research and prepare an expedited 601 waiver when the I-130 is approved. We have inquired with our congressional office, I traveled to the US to inquire in person but nothing.


Any advice, prayers and kind words would be very welcomed.
