i went there last month made infopass, the IO said its on adjudication process; wait for another 60 days and call us back. What does it mean? do they tap phones, checking emails in that process? is there anything i can do? i m so worried.
Get ready to receive a nocturnal or early morning (crack of dawn) visit from USCIS investigations unit or even ICE, checking if you two really live together and are genuinely "married".
If yours is a fake marriage, it is still time to withdraw the I-130 petition (USC must do that) and the I-485 application (foreign national must do this), PRIOR to any adverse determination by USCIS.
If, on the other hand, your marriage is genuine (real), then "lawyer up" and fight back! You won't be able to achieve anything on your own..
Behar Intl. Counsel 619.234.5962 Kindly be advised that the answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice.

The previous advice is correct. If you are not a "serial" marriage fraud violator, your phones and e-mails are very unlikely to be tapped, both actions require subpoena. However, if you are no longer together, and there is no plans to reconcile, you should seriously consider withdrawing the petition and application. Marriage fraud is a federal felony, and neither of you want to run that risk.
I agree with my colleagues ... you have noting to fear ... if the marriage is real & you two are currently living together.
If not .... talk to an attorney immediately, fraud marriages are taken very seriously.

My experience with USCIS In North and South Carolina lends me to believe there is an active investigation into your relationship. While many times the investigation turns up nothing, you should prepare for the possibility of a request for further evidence and/or a notice of intent to deny. Best to retain an experienced immigration litigator now for insurance.
