Hello all, I am on AP since October 2017, got the DS-5535 in Montreal. Anyone else in this situation from CanadaÉ Thanks
Hi all, My spouse and I are anticipating either a NOA2 or RFE for an I-130 application soon. I have noticed many are stuck in AP and now, the new DS 5535, which has risen a concern for us. We were planning our life (buying a house, work, a baby, finances etc...) based on her being here with me before 2019. Now, this AP and DS 5535 are a major concern for us because we have noticed applicants have been waiting for over 6 months after "Interview". We have waited enough, and any additional wait will be very upsetting for both of us. Now, that said, here are my questions: 1- Does everyone get AP and DS 5535 in MENA countries? Why? 2- Is there a criteria the CO s follow to give AP and DS 5535? or it is automatically given? 3- Are there people from MENA countries who did not get AP and/or DS 5535? 4- Are there things one can do to avoid DS 5535 and or AP? 5- We do Not mind the forms at all, if they do not make us wait another 6 months or more. Could we submit the DS 5535 now to avoid the lengthy wait? Sorry about the many questions, but neither Google nor Attorneys have definite answers. I felt this would be a good place to ask. As many of you, my wife and I have a life on hold here, and we feel we have done everything asked of us, and these new forms have come up of nowhere. More like a major set back, which I pray and hope we do not endure. From what I have read, I wish it on no one, unless there are reasons to undergo such procedures. In other words, if an applicant has been to certain parts of the world or has red flags, I am with hose forms and extra security measures; But, if a female applicant has never been outside her own town, let alone the country, and has no red flags what so ever, why should she and her spouse endure additional time of waiting? Again, I apologize about the lengthy (what is supposed to be a question) venting, asking session above; Input is highly appreciated.
