We had an interview early first week of January 2013, and separated during the interview, at the end the officer said he will mail something within 2 weeks, it has been almost 4 weeks now. What should we do? Our case is so simple, and we didn't hire a lawyer.
a) InfoPass is unavailable-it keeps saying try back later as they don't have any dates to schedule, no luck with 800 # CSR either, no one knows what's that status...
b) Hire a lawyer and leave him do all the job?
d) how long wait?
The reason we are in a hurry, my wife is from Ukraine and she is having a family emergency, and we know the risks to travel when green card pending, although is it possible?
I agree with the previous answers and add that if your wife has a true medical emergency that requires her to travel to Ukraine, she may be able to get an emergency travel document. Of course, she must provide proof of a life and death situation in her immediate family that requires her to travel while her adjustment of status is pending.
As you have learned by now ... your case is not "so simple". It isn't too late to hire an attoney and have him/her review your paperwork and 'de-brief' you.
Also, they aren't required to keep their 'we will get back to you in 2 weeks' "promise". They can take as long as they want. Infact, it is usually better to not "push" them to make a decision.
a) This is not a question, thus I can not provide an answer.
b) Yes, it is a good idea to meet with an attorney.
c) That is your decision
d) There is no 'good' answer to this question. I would suggest that you talk to an attorney and consider pushing them 150 days before the EAD expires.
There was a comment about an F visa that doesn't appear when I enter response mode ... thus I can't see what it says. Again, talk to an attorney about this.
This is the perfect case for you to retain an lawyer who is experienced in defending the perception of marriage fraud. Being out in front of this is a great litigation strategy. If Charlotte CIS did a Stokes interview, then I'm guessing they have some information they want to reconcile. A thorough review of your case presentation and potentially a supplementary filing in anticipation of an RFE or a NOID may be the best course of action.
