  1. Thanks so much for the detailed advice! We'll keep you updated if we go this route.
  2. Thanks for your suggestion. I've heard of the Ombudsman process, but I don't know much about the congressman/senator path. Is there an 'official' process for this? Or how did you go about making this filing? We received more frustrating news a few weeks ago because they told us to schedule an appointment to remake the packet, but they won't schedule one for us because they're 'emergency only' right now.
  3. Update on my wife's status: Oct 21: Paid fee Nov 2: POE March 2: 120 days, called and opened SR with USCIS April 3: SR was never assigned to agent, so called again. Agent opened a higher priority SR April 6: Case assigned to agent for response April 15: Received an email saying they need more time, and if we don't hear back in 90 days to call again. June 2: Called again, they just told us to keep waiting June 9: Received letter from USCIS saying they lost the packet (never received it from POE). Called number and waiting for an in-person appointment to be scheduled to re-create packet. 7+ months and no end in sight.
  4. A lot of cards have gone into production in the last few weeks. Hopefully that's a good sign for my wife's.... we're over 6 months since entry at this point and still no card
  5. Are you asking about whether the green card for my wife is 2 or 10 years? We actually don’t know yet, that will be something we find out when they finally print the thing.
  6. Update on my wife's status: Oct 21: Paid fee Nov 2: POE March 2: 120 days, called and opened SR with USCIS April 3: SR was never assigned to agent, so called again. Agent opened a higher priority SR April 6: Case assigned to agent for response April 15: Received an email saying they need more time, and if we don't hear back in 90 days to call again. So here we are approaching 6 months, and they just told us to wait 3 more months with no additional information...
  7. YWG Airport (Canada has US pre-clearance, so she had her visa processed there).
  8. Adding my wife's status: Oct 21: Paid fee Nov 2: POE March 2: 120 days, called and opened SR with USCIS April 3: SR was never assigned to agent, so called again. Agent opened a higher priority SR April 6: Case assigned to agent for response Today (Apr 10): Still haven't heard anything. Case is still in "Immigrant Visa Fee Payment Received"... 5+ months and waiting...
  9. Can you provide an update on this? How long did it take to receive your SSN and GC? Thanks!
  10. Just a secondary inspection. My wife got pulled into the side room for about 20 minutes while they processed the documents. There were no additional questions, just fingerprints and some waiting while they processed everything.
  11. Sure - will do. It has been 3 weeks from my wife’s entry and we haven’t yet received the SSN or GC. On Tuesday (2.5 weeks since entry), we called the SSN office and she wasn’t even in the system yet. We called again yesterday and she has been assigned a number and we should be receiving the card soon. As for the GC, no signs yet. The IOE status still just says “fee paid”
  12. Through my reading of the forums, I've certainly seen situations where it takes that long (or longer). But for us, all I can say is that it was fast and took a couple of days. But it did go through the same CEAC status that you see (although it transitioned out of it within 24 hours).
  13. It went well! As I mentioned - this was 'follow-to-join', so it was actually my wife interviewing to 'join' my EB2 case. She arrived at the consulate around 6:45 for an 8:00 interview, and she was actually first in line. Once they opened the building up, she was out in about 20 mins. Apparently they barely asked her any questions. Basically what my name was, what my phone number was, and maybe one other question. At that point they informed her that she was approved! Regarding CEAC status and visa delivery, these were the high level updates: Oct 15 8am interview: CEAC status Ready Oct 15 5pm (approx): CEAC status Issued (with text about administrative processing) Oct 16 12pm (approx): CEAC status Issued (your visa is in final processing, if you have not received it in 5 working days go to this link...) Oct 17 10:30am: Email indicating visa has been delivered (to Winnipeg). CEAC status is still in same state (ISSUED: your visa is in final processing...) Oct 21: Paid IV fee, received IOE number that is used to track status on USCIS site Nov 2: POE at YWG airport (straight forward, took 20-30 mins) Today: Still waiting for SSN and GC. CEAC status still says issued, and USCIS site (with IOE number) still just says that IV fee was paid
  14. Alright, so the visa was delivered. In total, it took about 2 days from interview to delivery (to Winnipeg). Oct 15 8am interview: CEAC status Ready Oct 15 5pm (approx): CEAC status Issued (with text about administrative processing) Oct 16 12pm (approx): CEAC status Issued (your visa is in final processing, if you have not received it in 5 working days go to this link...) Oct 17 10:30am: Email indicating visa has been delivered. CEAC status is still in same state (ISSUED: your visa is in final processing...)
  15. I should be able to tell you soon. My wife had her interview on Oct 15, this is the timeline so far: Oct 15 8am interview: CEAC status Ready Oct 15 5pm (approx): CEAC status Issued (with text about administrative processing) Oct 16 12pm (approx): CEAC status Issued (your visa is in final processing, if you have not received it in 5 working days go to this link...) Oct 17 Waiting for next update.
