    Answered . Yes, you should start moving. I am sure, you marked the name of that officer. Write him or her a letter. Wait a week after that and then make an inforpass appointment. If you had an immigraiton lawyer engaged, you would not need me advising you here.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Without knowing what occurred at the interview or the underlying facts as to how you came to apply for LPR status, it is difficult to determine whether there is heightened scrutiny on your case in specific or if this is simply CIS being slow. Discuss with your lawyer and if you don't have one, now may be the time to hire one.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . I agree with Mr. Eichorn. If you know the name of the Adjudications Official, and did not have an attorney present, then an attorney may more easily investigate. However, more information is needed and if an attorney was not with you at the interview, then it can be difficult to know the reason for the delay. Perhaps, its routine, but its best to find out. Good luck.

    This is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
