My husband and I have been married for almost two years now and we have an eight month old son. My husband had is interview in Pakistan for his visa but was put under AP. It is now 6 months an we have not heard anything back from the embassy. I understand AP is for security and background check. But we have a child together, does that not count for anything?
Everyone who applies for immigration benefits are subject to USCIS security checks. The background investigation is designed to screen out criminals and national security threats during the immigration process. Because of the imperfections in the process, delays by security checks can be up to a year or more. The fact that you have children together does not impact the process. Good luck to you both.
