CEAC Status

My fiance had his interview on 4 September 2018 and was placed on AP. Our case status on the CEAC site still says "Ready." It has been updated a few times since his interview date. I wonder why the status hasn't changed to "Administrative Processing" yet though. Would anyone know why?

I-130 Approved

Good day everyone.

Well, by His grace, my wife's visa was approved at her interview.

They kept her passport, and all the documentation she brought with her.

They gave her a form letter saying that she had been tentatively approved for the visa, and to return on the 11th of October to likely pick it up.

Now I understand that this a a legal matter, and that putting something in writing means something, so giving themselves "wiggle room" by stating it as they did makes sense.

When I check Ceac, it shows a status of issued, and says that visa has been printed.

My question is: do I sit tight and wait for my wife to get the visa in hand, or can I book a flight now in order to get as best a price as possible on airfare, since we are getting into the holiday season, and choosing a departure

date sooner than four weeks out usually raises the prices.

I'm happy to be in this predicament mind you. Having been in the visa process for over two years (initially went with a I-129F), I'm just anxious to actually get to sleep in the same bed as my wife.

I do appreciate any and all comments.

Hey everybody,

My wife is going for her interview next Tuesday on the 25th.

The consulate and Sri Lanka does not allow anyone to accompany the beneficiary into the interview. So, in light of that, I thought it might be beneficial for her to be able to present a letter written by me to the consular.

I am posting what I have written, and would appreciate any and all feedback on it. Please feel free to suggest any edits to it.

I - 485 and EAD

I have received my Bio metrics appointment for both I 485 and EAD. I received my EAD and it expires on 12/27/18. I haven't heard anything about my greencard and it says invalid when I try to check status using the receipt number they provided me. I've tried to contact them using the 1-800 number and they don't have an option for talking to an officer. So I have few questions.

a) How do I get to talk to an officer? There's no options in the main menu so if someone can give me how to get to that option clearly, that'd be great.

b) Since my EAD expires on 12/27/18, and hasn't heard anything about my greencard, when do I need to apply for a new EAD?

Thank you very much!

Can fiance travel while K1 case is undergoing AP

Our K1 Visa case was put on Administrative Processing on 4 September 2018. It was a yellow 221(g) sheet, basically saying that they need to review our case further before a decision is made. They returned his passport after the interview. My fiance and I both know that AP can take a while, so given that we've already been apart for over a year now, we would like to visit each other this winter. Is it okay for my fiance to travel while our case is still in AP? We would like to visit Dubai again together.
