  1. Hope you're doing well considering all the added stress during these stressful times? So in terms of my WOM I received a Notice of Intent to Deny on Friday. I scanned and sent over to my attorney and now we have to work on this together to answer the NOID. I have 30 days to respond back. Once again the waiting is so draining and frustrating this journey is been the most difficult to deal with. For God is in control and he will see us all through this!! Any news on your case?
  2. All valid points, well received. We had a very quick interview and were told we are approved, until we were put in AP with no additional documents requested. I as well believe that it definitely helps that the USC the petitioner is there but, he strongly advised on not going to the interview unless the consulate asks for you to accompany the beneficiary.
  3. You can look him on youtube all his videos are there and he even did webinars on this as well!!
  4. Our interview was very simple and were even told we have proven our case and got the visa. No additional documents were requested etc. I guess it depends on the country and how clear cut your case is. There isn't any set rules for whether or not one's spouse can or cannot attend. This entire process is supposed to be an easy one but we all have different experiences and our end results are the same which is we either get to bring our significant other right away or we have a long road ahead of us. We're all here to share our experiences and then it's up to that individual whether he/she wants to accompany their spouse to the interview. Had I know this ahead of time I honestly wouldn't have gone.
  5. Jim Hacking my attorney has videos on this exact topic, and is against USC to attend the interview. I attended the interview with my husband and I believed that was the reason we are in Administrative processing for this long it's been 16 long months. I ended up having to leave my husband in Guyana. It was the hardest thing I had to do. Please think long and hard about your decision about going. You can go for moral support but do not go inside with her. Good luck to you both!
  6. Not sure what this means. I am eagerly waiting. I took a snip it of it and forwarded to Mr. Hacking. I hope we are getting good news. It's been 16 months to be exact since we had our interview. I am assuming because they received the summons, it's the first step in getting my case moving.
  7. Best of luck to you too my dear. Mr. Hacking has a phenomenal team.Stay positive and be be patient, everything will fall into place.. As soon as I hear anything on my WOM i will be sure to share with everyone!
  8. Good morning, Bibi, Last week our office filed a TRO against President Trump to try to stop his Immigration Ban executive order. The immigration ban will hurt a lot of immigrants who are trying to come to the U.S. to be reunited with their families, immigrants who are trying to start a new life in the U.S. So we filed a lawsuit to try to get it stopped. We had a hearing last Thursday with a federal judge to argue that the ban wasn't legal and shouldn't continue. And we received a decision. The judge decided that we did not have a standing, our clients hadn't been harmed yet, and that because the embassies are closed anyway for COVID-19 the executive order hasn't effected our clients directly. As of now, the ban will continue. But we aren't giving up. We are reviewing the response and hope to keep the legal challenge alive. We will continue to fight for immigrants. The embassies are still closed, there has been no word on when they will reopen. But as saddening, disheartening, and frustrating as this is we can't lose hope. There are elections coming up soon. There is a light at the end of this. Until then, we will be working on getting immigration back on track and to get our country back on track. Don't give up. We've got to keep fighting. Best, Jim P.S. We are having an Ask Me Anything webinar on Tuesday, May 26th, at 4pm CST. Register here. I'd love to see you there.
  9. For now it's too soon to tell for my case. Our due date for an answer to our lawsuit is June 20th. So for now it's the waiting game. I was also made aware that they may or may not as for an extension. We just have to be alittle more patient for we have come so far.
  10. Thoughts and Prayers with Jim Hacking immigration Attorney. Today 5/14 at 1 pm central, I will be arguing the biggest case of my legal career. On April 22, 2020, President Trump issued Proclamation 10014 which would bar thousands of foreign nationals from getting immigrant visas to the United States. Federal law passed by Congress and signed by prior Presidents allows foreign nationals in various visa categories to come to the U.S. and obtain lawful permanent residence. President Trump and Stephen Miller wish to stop legal immigration to the U.S. and this Proclamation seeks to exclude: Parents of U.S. citizens Spouses and children of lawful permanent residents Adult children of U.S. citizens Brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens Employment based visa seekers (except those working in health care) Diversity visa winners We filed a lawsuit in federal court in Washington DC to try and stop the Proclamation. We are asking Judge Amit Mehta to halt the ban as it is contrary to the Immigration & Nationality Act. The hearing is this afternoon. The government has lots of arguments why we cannot prevail, but we filed a solid brief in response. If you are so inclined, please send us positive thoughts, prayers and blessings our way this afternoon. We could really use it. Thank you. PS - if you would like to hear the argument (which may be me getting crushed by the judge ), you can listen by calling (877) 848-7030 at 1 pm central, access code 321-8747.
  11. Thanks for sharing. I have hired Jim as well he’s so instrumental in our journey and I am so happy I decided to go with him as well. He’s the best out there. My husband been in AP for one year and five months and due to our current pandemic I decided to go with Jim we now in the waiting phase June 20 will be out 60 days to hear back unless our time gets extended. I’m positive. May Allah swt makes it easy for us all on this journey and reunite us with our loved ones. Please be safe everyone and if anyone looking for a GREAT ATTORNEY call Jim Hacking.
  12. I hear you this is all definitely nerve wrecking. I file a WOM with the Hacking law firm and everyone was served out date to hear back with an answer is June 20, 2020. We are being positive!! Given our current pandemic maybe they will show some leniency and be empathetic 🤨😌😁 just thought I’d throw those in 🤦‍♀️ This has been one heck of a journey. My concern is after visa is issued how soon spouse will have to come to NYC currently so many restrictions. Best of luck to all of us. Please keep us updated and I will do the same!
  13. As a matter of fact I have and everyone was served. I was told 60 days from when the last person was served I will hear from USCIS, which is June 20. So for now it's the waiting game. Also, I was informed that because of our current pandemic there could be delays. Keeping my fingers cross I will post my outcome on here. Everyone talks of doing WOM but never bothers to come back and share any follow up details. After our interview we were told we will get our visa but were put in Administrative Processing were given a white slip no additional information needed. This is so frustrating, we go through this process to begin our lives together but yet so many of us are separated from our loved ones and have no idea what's going on we are just waiting and our lives are on hold. We like to believe that if we follow the protocol and provided everything USCIS is asking for we will be successful in this journey; however it's far from the truth. It seems like USCIS just wants to deny our petition. Praying that each and everyone of us have a successful outcome and are reunited with our loved one. Be safe/healthy everyone.
  14. Jim Hacking is certainly the best I’ve been hesitant for too long it’s been 1 year and 4 months no movements on my case it’s sitting at California service center since June13,2019. So I’ve decided to go with Jim did my consultation last week and now I’m about to get the ball rolling signing those documents and sending them back so he can move forward he’s by far the best. Goldstein doesn’t grasp my attention!! That’s just my opinion!! Best of luck to us all!!
