  1. Hello, My spouse came here last month and we came across an issue where we needed to go to the a USCIS field office and speak with an immigration officer directly. The nearest USCIS office is in Chicago. The way to do that is go to the USCIS website and schedule an appointment. Given that this is the only field office serving Chicago (3rd most populous city in the USA) getting an appointment is extremely difficult. I kept getting a message that no appointments were available and to try back later. This was extremely frustrating as you get the exact same message every single time. So, here is what I did. I contacted the office of my congressman and they went to work on immediately. However, I happened to be up at 1:30am and out of the blue I decided to see if any info pass appointments were available. Lo and behold !!! They have not one but literally 10 available slots. I have the luxury of choosing a time that was convenient for me ! How about that ? It appears they update the available time slots at or around midnight. Though I don't know the US time zone. I am in Central. Also the earliest date you get will always be 14 days out. I hope this helps someone.
  2. The agency that stamps your passport is CBP (United States Customs & Border Patrol). That is why you were referred to them. However, I think it will be wise to wait for the green card arrives. I have the exact same issuy. I have however contacted my congressman just to be on the safr side. I would rather get the correct green card the first time around rather than mess around with additional forms and yet even more waiting.
  3. Hello, I was notified that my spouse's processing at NVC is complete and they are waiting for the US Embassy in Islambad, Pakistan (ISL) to provide the available interview dates. I would like to know if anyone knows how long Islamabad will take to provide the interview dates. Also, how far out is Islamabad scheduling interviewes ? Thanks as always
