    Answered . We cannot know. I doubt that one of the attorneys here on AVVO is the officer working on your case. If you find that 6 months is too long a time, you can schedule an infopass appointment and discuss this matter with USCIS. I can only add that having this work done by a competent immigration attorney might have saved you a lot of hassle.

    Answered . I agree with my colleagues. You may contact the USCIS to find out more information. . . but I cannot know if there is an issue in your case by this post. If you contact USCIS you may also ask if the case is past the processing time? if yes then you may request a status inquiry be sent. I would urge you to contact an experienced immigration attorney to guide you through the process.
