My I 485 was denied due to mistaken voter registration. now i have filed I 290B to fight this false claim to citizenship allegation. How long is it taking right now to get a decision on I 290B request for reconsideration in Chicago IL.
MTR could take a long time my friend. You best need to let an experienced attorney to do this for you. Roughly between 6 months to one year or even more. False claim to citizenship is very critical and could bar you from receiving immigration benefits forever unless in a very rare exceptional circumstances. Highly need a lawyer to assist you here.
The 290B is usually a waste of money.
You should meet with an attorney and have him/her prepare a new 485 ... assuming that you promptly retracted your voter registration once you learned you shouldn't be registered.
