    Answered . It is common at the Dallas District Office that the officer conducting the interview is not the sole decision maker on your case. They often send cases up for supervisory review, if the IO is new, in training, or there are any criminal/unlawful presence/I-864 issues to clear. You should recieve an approval notice or a request for additional evidence within 30-45 days. If you do not, you can schedule an Infopass appt to inquire or contact a local immigration attorney to follow up with USCIS on your case.

    Answered . It has not been that long. Now, everything has to go through the supervisor. No more immediate answers or I-551 stamp as in the old days. Prepare to wait 30-60 days, and then you can make an Infopass appointment to see what the delay is, if any.
