Kim&Jesus posted a topic in IR-1 / CR-1 Spouse Visa Case Filing and Progress ReportsHello everyone, I am here to trying to maybe get some insight to what is going on with others and their wait time. I will try and make this short. My husband and I started dating in 2014 then married in 2016 and right after I filed paperwork to start our journey on making him a legal resident of the US. He came over at the young age of 13. Anyways long story short in 2017 he was pulled over because we forgot to put the sticker on the car and of course he had no licenses so he was taken to jail they told him they would let him sign himself out soon but when i got there they told me ICE had been called so I had to pay $10,000 I drove all the way to Minneapolis and paid the bond then went to Grand forks to pick him up since then our case took a detour. After a long process we eventually were able to continue with our journey and in September 2019 our case was documentarily completed everything was accepted and paid for the only thing we were waiting on was an interview date. However the month before in August 2019 he had immigration court and the nice judge gave him the option to stay and fight his case (which would cost us another $8,000 with our attorney) or we could just do Voluntary departure and he wait on his appointment in Mexico we were told it would possibly be up to 6 months so we agreed to that. He left in December 2019 and to the date of July 1st 2021 he is still there waiting for his appointment we have not heard anything. I understand covid was never expected and of course messed that up for thousands if not more families. So does anyone have any ideas of when or how much longer? His interview will be in Juarez, Mexico we have just been told our case is just at the NVC awaiting for the consulate in Juarez to give them an appointment date. I am well aware that everyone else is affected just as much, but I don't know how much longer we can do this. We have 3 children and one grandchild he was only able to see for a week as she was born a few days before he left. Anything would help! Thanks so much and God Bless!
