Event Description
Review Date : December 9, 2011
Embassy Review : Hi everyone- My husband had his interview Oct. 31 2011 the interviewer asked for skype records and pictures, the only thing missing from our packet was a marriage paper my husband ran and got it back to them within 2 hrs from his interview. The interviewer said that he had everything he needed and for my husband to come back that Thursday. When he came back they acted like they didn't know why he was there, in the end they told him he would be contacted by email. My husband received nothing from them so he emailed them asking about his case. He got a reply saying there was no record of his passport number or application. I called the embassy to ask about this and he say no we have everything. Your husband's case is on the consular's desk and is in administrative review. When I called the dept of state the lady told me don't worry your husband is approved is just a matter of time. I called the embassy and they told me they need to be sure of our relationship, I understand this but we gave them many document's proving our relationship. Now every time I call I get the he's in administrative review. My dad called and the man told him we put Atef's case on the top of the list he will get a call in the next few day's. It has been three day's and I call and I get the same bs of he is in administrative review crap. I ask how long will this take his interview was Oct. 31 the man told me this could take 4 week's up to a yr. and they will let us know by email when they make their decision. I don't know what kind of crap they are doing to us! We had everything and did everything they told us. I sent them lot's of email's and call almost everyday and I get no real answer's. I don't understand what is going on, and I feel so sad. It would be ok for me to go to Tunisia and make our life there but I have 4 children here and this is the only reason we have to make our life in America. If anyone has a similar case or any advise please feel free to share with me, I am so heart broken and never seen this coming. I don't know what to tell my kid's they thought their step dad would be here by now and they don't understand the immigration stuff or even why we can only talk to their step dad on the internet. Everything we have done is for our children, I can't fail them and we need my husband here with us! javascript:emoticon('')javascript:emoticon('')

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.
