  1. There really isn't a current thread for progress updates for the I-601 waivers. I wanted to start a thread where everyone can just post their progress. If everyone could create a timeline and put it in their signature it would really be helpful. It doesn't matter when you filed. Any reported progress really helps everyone along the journey !!
  2. My I-601 waiver was approved by USCIS April 26, 2022 for my immigrant visa case. I noticed that my CEAC date of last update has not been updated, suggesting they did not get the waiver approval notice. I was waiting for instructions from the embassy after the approval but did not hear from them. So I emailed the Montreal consulate and after two weeks they responded that they did not yet receive the approved waiver and will not proceed without it. What am I supposed to do ? I scanned and emailed the approval notice to them (I-797 from USCIS) in reply to their email. Normally the consulate is supposed to be notified directly by USCIS upon approval. Has this happened to anybody? How do I get this resolved ? Please help!
  3. Hi!! I have already filed AOS and haven't done medical eval yet. We are planning to do that when we get our interview invite (takes 2 weeks where I am and 30 days before our interview so we have about week/2 for breathing room) bringing that Med exam with us to interview ALONG with form 601. Question: Will the adjudicating officer be able to decide on our exemption request form 601 there during interview or will our case be denied or post poned? Trying to wonder do I need submit 601 before interview since I already filed 485 or good enough to bring to interview or both? I know it should have been filed with 485 from the beginning but I learned of that after I sent it in and trying to do what is right to remedy the situation now! Thanks!!
  4. Hello, For a few reasons, I overstayed my student visa on 2013, then come back to my home country on 2018. During that time I married with a US citizen and we have 2 kids who born there as well. I asked several lawyer and they advice me to go back to my country and apply for immigrant visa in US embassy in my country, and I don't need to apply for any waiver. I had 2 years residency on my student visa that's why I was a bit worry but I decided to left the US because my mother was sick, and bring my kids with me. I spent my 2 years residency then applied my IR1 here and I just got my interview then the consular told me that my visa got rejected and need a follow up for i-601 waiver. I am so devastated right now, we've been separated with my husband for over 3 years and wanted to come back. How long is the process for i-601 and what should I do next? Anybody has similar issues with mine?
