When will my husband receive his passport with the Visa ?

Asked over 1 year ago - New York, NY

I am a u.s. citizen by birth and have applied for I-130 for my spouse in April 2011. The interview was in February 2012 and was sent for Administrative Processing. 1 year has passed and we have heard nothing. I also have a son who was born in USA and a daughter with a u.s birth certificate. I do not want to live in Pakistan anymore due to the conditions in Pakistan. I need to live here because of the Administrative Processing. HELP!

    Answered . Administrative processing takes its own time and may feel like a black hole for cases. Contact the consulate if your husband had to submit his passport there and is waiting for this document with visa stamp. (You may till not get any specific reply.) Your question was unclear on this point.
