I went to an immigration lawyer around mid November with my USC wife, and I gave him all the documents he asked for ( birth certificates, passports, my visa, her work stuff and so on ), and my wife makes enough money to be my sponsor .. and we both agreed on payments plan, i paid him some money up front , now its been almost three months, and he hasn't filled anything yet, i called a few times, and his secretary was rude to me and said he is busy and he will call back, he did once and said I am still working on them !
I am still out of status and have no work permit and no job, can't wait to fix my status, and get that work permit , I am realy too shy and polite to say anything to him, so please is this normal ? does it really take that long to file them ? what should I do ?
The amount of time does not seem normal at all. Once a client submits all required paperwork to me, it usually takes a week or so to prepare the paperwork and get it filed. If he isn't missing anything, and hasn't asked you to produce any other paperwork then the delay isn't right. I would request the paperwork to be returned to you, along with the money you paid him, and go see another immigration attorney.
