  1. If the other senator doesn't get back, contact the second one. I had to contact both of the senators in my state until I saw any movement on the N-400.
  2. Only thing I can think of is contacting your senators, representatives and the USCIS ombudsman? https://www.dhs.gov/topic/cis-ombudsman Have you tried all of those?
  3. Great news! I'm glad to hear that Warsaw is being so accommodating.
  4. So, this is frustrating. My husband's Oath was re-scheduled for June 3rd, but then they also cancelled it the same day the scheduled it. 😡 The statuses back to back look like this: May 12, 2021 - We scheduled you for an oath ceremony for your Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. May 12, 2021 - We cancelled the scheduled appointment for the oath ceremony for your Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. May 12, 2021 - Oath Ceremony Will Be Scheduled So....still waiting.
  5. **Moved from IR-1 / CR-1 Spouse Visa Case Filing and Progress Reports to National Visa Center (Dept of State)**
  6. Wow, that is quite fast! How long was wait overall? Can you go into more detail about what was strict? I know that spousal visas tend to get less scrutiny than K-1's, just curious.
  7. Mail it in, yes. That happened to me once and the only option was to mail it in. They will physically mail you a letter of confirmation once they get it. I would change it on all websites as well, if you can.
  8. That's typical in today's world here. In fact, 3 months is even considered fast compared to others' experiences. My husband searched for 4 months and applied to over 800 jobs in his field (yes, we kept count and tracked all of it with a spreadsheet) before eventually landing a job. Out of the 800, he only got interviews with less than 20 and only heard follow up replies after that from about 5 of those. That "how can we use sure you will say here" sounds dangerously close to discrimination. I'm shocked they would say something like that. The local experience, OK I can get that, but implying you're going to just up and move merely because you're an immigrant?? You have every right to file a complaint against that company for saying that because it's not a legit excuse to use someone's immigration status to judge them. Average in the US. It's just how it is here. Only certain jobs and industries will be more generous. If you work for a smaller, specialized European owned company (rare but they do exist), that's the only time I've seen generous time off across the board for all workers.
  9. Well, being on a backlog where you at least know someone will eventually get it to it is much better than just being in eternal limbo like in Moscow. So, still good news! I hope the wait won't be too long. Does your fiancée have a Schengen visa? Was that a requirement for the transfer?
  10. Just wanted to update that, at least according to others on VJ, Warsaw is actively taking cases for Russians/others waiting for the Moscow Embassy, see this update from today in another thread here:
  11. That's great news!!! What visa is it, spousal, fiancee or parent visa?
  12. Adjustment of status exists for people who change their mind/decide to adjust after the fact, when they're already in the US and have to change status for some unforeseen circumstance. The idea is that when the person first entered the US, they were coming to stay temporarily and then during their temporary stay, circumstances changed and then they had to adjust. For example, if your mom were visiting you, she was already in the US right now and all of this news with Moscow embassy broke, she could stay and adjust based on that new information which had changed the plan. The fraud part is that it's basically lying to use a non-immigrant visa with planned immigration purposes. CBP asks you what your reason for coming to the US is. If the visa holder lies and says "Oh I'm just visiting" when in reality they 100% plan to stay and adjust, that's the fraud part - it's a lie. Also, I'm fairly new to immigration so I don't know what the laws were 10 or 20 years ago. It's possible that back then, things were more fast and loose and you could just come and go and adjust as you pleased. It's certainly not like that now. If you'd like to hear it from a pro, you can probably get a free consultation with an immigration lawyer and they will corroborate what is said here about fraud.
  13. Yes and no. Belarus does not have an embassy, so if you're Belarussian your case goes to Warsaw by default. Warsaw has been taking Russian applicants by special request but you must contact them directly first, it will not get automatically forwarded there like in the case of Belarussians.
  14. **Moved from Off Topic to Working & Traveling During US Immigration; topic is travel related**
  15. Don't want to rain on the parade but I'm not sure the lawsuit will not do much if Moscow physically does not have the staff to process. I think moving to a 3rd country is a great idea if you can manage. I knew an Australian/Russian couple who lived and worked in Bali together. It seems in general Southeast Asia, East Asia and South America could be options but given Covid just double check what the requirements are.
