No what I meant was that they don't even have the PD in front of them and no personal details....so I guess I can take a chance....they have limited information anyway...

I have tried it several times. You can talk on behalf of your spouse. But your spouse has to be there at that time, as the CSR first asks if that is your case. There is no need to tell lies, you can always say that you are enquiring about your spouse. The CSR makes sure that your spouse is there at that time, and talks to your spouse first before talking to you about your spouse's case.

wife's SR yielded in a response of "assigned to an officer on 9/11" and my infopass today (9/15) also had the same result....so I guess its a waiting game for us! I tried normal "outside of processing window" method to file SRs but now learnt about getting to directly to talk to IO...will try that tomorrow - I wish I could bug them ay this hour

PRESS 4 instead of 3 (outside of normal processing time) - I guess go back couple pages on this thread or "Sept approvals (our very own favorite) thread - you will get the details.

Lets keep each other posted.

Thanks,

Default Got a response for inquiry made by local senator

Reached home and had a letter waiting...

Here is the response from TSC:

According to TSC, it is currently processing 485 visas based on filing date order. There are a large amount of cases that are being processed and your case will be processed in receipt date order. With the limited amount of visas that are currently available between now and September 30, 2009, there is no guarantee that your case can be completed before the end of FY 2009.

For whatever it means, I have seen tons and tons of cases with receipt date/notice date and PD after me that have been approved. Heck, all my dates are current on outside the processing time so I dont know what to make out of it.

All we can do is keep our fingers crossed...... I wish I had received the card instead of the letter today

I feel the pain buddy...I feel the pain. There is no rhyme or reason and this reasoning is BS ...since we all know people with later PDs and later RDs/NDs have been approved - the processing order is JUST a BIG MESS.

When the senator inquiry was initiated? sometime in August?

Default Yeah, its a bunch of bull crap

Senators inquiry was initiated in first week of September. I guess that is TSC's way of saying F$%$ off....

I am thinking.....I think they have black listed my application for hassling them too much
How can I get in their good books now?
