  1. Hello, I wanted to start a new thread for those of us who just sent in our i60a Wavier packet in 2018. I just received our receipt notice today 3/1 and our case is in the Nebraska Service Center. I have read on other threads that this is something new for 2018? I wish everyone luck and hopefully we can move on to the next part quickly!!!😉😀 Wavier received 2/12/18 Receipt received 3/6/18
  2. ISO ADVICE: My fiancé and I filed our 601 waiver With the Kingston Jamaica Embassy June 6, 2017. We received our RFE August 20 2018 stating that we also needed to file a 212 waiver because our previous lawyer did not we hired another lawyer to file our 212 and it was received October 26, 2018.On November 20, 2018 I received a letter in the mail from USCIS stating that the Embassy in Lagos Nigeria does not have our 601 waiver and all actions and this case has been terminated(see pic below) we contacted the Embassy in Kingston Jamaica and they wrote us back in the email stating our waiver has been approved but I have been on the phone with USCIS since last week and they see no approval in their system. My question to you is what should be my fiancé and I next steps? And how much longer are we looking at?
  3. Background: - this is a wavier case which has plenty of evidence to show good faith marriage. - there is indication that the US spouse has made crude false allegations against the applicant to a senator's office and DHS. Those allegations are way beyond what you might expect. None are true. - there is indication that the US spouse has contacted at least one lawyer to ask "how do I get my spouse deported". Approximate timeline: - I-751 for removal of conditions was filed in Oct 2012. - Bio-metrics in November of 2012. - November 2012 to January 2016 - a dozen InfoPass appointments, 4x I-551 stamps and several "case outside of normal processing time inquiries", yielded "case pending adjudication" and nothing more. - February 2016 attorney attended yet another InfoPass appointment and advised the officer that if there is no resolution soon, he would proceed with a writ of mandamus. - Bio-metrics appointment May 2016. It appears that the file may have sat in California Service Center until February or March of 2016 and the infopass appointment in Feb 2016 did help to move it along. - Interview at local office in August 2016. The officer did not seem to question the legitimacy of the marriage at all, but rather the moral character of the person. It is believed that the false allegations mentioned above were the cause. - Request for evidence August 2016. USCIS received response by end of August 2016. The evidence, court records and other, showed that the applicant does not have any criminal charges. - Present day - May - June 2017. Yet another "case outside of normal processing time inquiries" yielded "we are unable to move forward with your application until the required background checks have been completed.". - InfoPass appointment June 2017, officer indicated that the background check has been pending since March 2017 and they have no control as to the amount of time it will take to complete. - A senator's office was contacted for assistance with the case. The constituent representative promptly contacted USCIS and received the following in summary: "case is pending, we are unable to determine at this time when the review process will be completed. USCIS will issue a decision once certain issues are resolved." - A request for case assistance was filed with the USCIS Ombudsman. This is the most recent action on the case. Other info: - Applicant has been a permanent resident for > 6.5 years. - Applicant has remarried happily 2 years ago. Options left: - Continue to wait indefinitely. - File N-400. - File writ of mandamus. If your case has been pending for a period greater than 3 years, please share your experience.
