The status of this service request is:

The processing of your case has been delayed. A check of our records establishes that your case is not yet ready for decision, as the required investigation into your background remains open.

Until the background investigation is completed, we cannot move forward on your case. These background checks are required to be completed on all applicants who apply for the immigration benefit you are seeking. We will make every effort to make a decision on this case as soon as the background checks are complete. If you do not receive a decision or other notice of action from us within 6 months of this letter, please contact us by calling our customer service number provided below.

I have no idea what i am supposed to do now to take care of this...
Any one else on the same boat ?
It is agaian a freind's freind had kind of issue. One guy did not get approval eventhough his data wase current for a long time. So, he inquired thru the Senator and they got a response saying that FBI Namecheck is pending. What had happened was FBI came to his house a number of times to tlak to him as part the Namecheck, but could not find this guy at home. As he was not married and was always late to home. SO, his case was namecheck was never cleared. After he got to know about this, he used come home early. One day two guys from FBI came to his home and inquired about the calls he had been making to Mid-East. Apparently this guys had a brother in Mid-East and was calling him regularly. He tols them that he's calling his brother and asked him few more questions and said they would do an enquiry and complete the namecheck.

After few days his namecheck was cleared and he got his GC.

May be there is some check pending on you, we never know what it is. Call FBI and ask if they have cleared your namecehck.

Default We got the magic email.

Hi All,
Finally we got the magic email of approval for me and my wife. Thanks IV for all the help in this long process. Reading through all the posting in this forum I have learned a lot about the whole process, that I was even more knowledgable than the attorney in some cases.
Good luck to everyone waiting.

Default infopass exp

Very cordial IO at infopass.
Address on my wife's file is correct. Address on my file is incorrect.
Step 1 -- Changed address

Now the question. Why the case got transferred.
He checked and said that though my wife's case got transferred to NBC, mine is still at Nebraska under LOST category.
Question what is lost category -- It means they do not have everything in order to pull and review the case.

Step 2- Sent note to NSC notifying mine and wife's case has to be tteated in same place and why my case is in under LOST category.
Will get response by end of Oct.

Btw, I told him that I recvd emails on both our 485 notifying transfer to NBC.

Next q is there anything to expedite the interview (if they are going to ask for one). He said for EB they normally won't do it. ( I am not agreeing here). But there is nothing that can be done till they get the case from LOST to "found" category.

[quote=ruchigup;953197]When I talked with IO upon receiving the RFE, I was told that RFE will go only to attorney if G-28 has been filed. But as a curtsy, she sent a duplicate of the RFE to me, that said COPY on the RFE letter when I received. If I had not called and talked to the IO, RFE would have gone only to attorney of record.

Ruchi,
I followed your advise and luckily got a nice IO who said will send me a copy. I just received copy of RFE and am really laughing at rfe. I can respond to rfe in next 20 minutes- but i had been worried as i changed employers twice without ac21.

apb,

As someone with the same PD who got approved long ago, I cannot bear to see that you are still waiting. Did you try the congressional inquiry route ?

LOST category is simply ridicuous... go check with your congressperson. As you might know each Service Center has a congressional inquiry unit to look into cases such as yours.

Good luck !

pasupuleti is infamous around these parts
Default Priority date Recapturing at 485

Hello,

My case was filed during july fiasco. My lawyers forgot to attach my earlier priority date from eb3 I140 to my eb2 I140. After reminding them several times, they finally they sent pd capture letter at I485 stage. It was done year ago. Now my old priority date is current, but USCIS is not looking at my file saying "waiting for visa availability". Several service requests resulted in mis match of information, sometimes they say both I140 are in the file, sometimes they give latest priority date.

My earlier eb3 pd is : feb 2004
eb2 pd is : june 2007

What are my options here? How do i get uscis to honor my earlier priority date?

Thank You
