Stuck at no appointments available.

Is it the possible to sue the embassy or the US govt due to distress and emotional trauma from consistently seeing no appointments available and lack of adequate customer service (US Embassy in Honduras)?

 

My fiancée is 6 months pregnant and she is distressed, depressed, and distraught because of this inefficient process! I can only imagine the damage this is causing my unborn child!

 

So? Can I Sue?

You can try. I'm sure there are a lot of lawyers who would love for you to pay them a ton of money to attempt to sue an embassy with diplomatic powers.... It eventually would go no where except again wasting a ton of money. The embassy, again with diplomatic status, has it's own unique power. While it may be distressing and inconvenient at times, an immigration deal is a privilege, not a right. Again you can try, but somehow thinking you'd win is something you should forget. Some countries the wait is months for an interview so. Even people who get stuck in administrative processing for 1-2 years can't do much except right for a formal decision to be made which, usually ends in a denial of a visa so.

A waste of money and effort on your part.  The immigration process is depressing for everyone who has ever gone through it......The process requires a GREAT deal of knowledge, planning, time, patience, and money........

You could, but don't expect it to look good once your fiancé goes in for her interview or lead anywhere for you guys. Keep in mind, being pregnant is no reason to speed things up for the embassy. There are hundreds of other petitions that they have to deal with, so sometimes unfortunately it takes a longer time. If I were you I wouldn't waste my time/money on suing them. Good luck, hope she gets her interview soon!

Waiting is part of the immigration process.  We've all gone through/are going through it.  Some USCs might chose to move to their fiancee's country for some of the wait time.
