@Cali - I wish we could have got it together - really! I know the frustration...But may be few more days and you will be through as well. lets keep the hope. You have been great although we got e-introduced only couple of weeks back...

anyone who is in the same boat - write on the forums - help each other and provide any nugget that could change the game...I do believe I got tremendous help from this forum and the morale support that was needed just to bear through each day. It helped me with my emotions and provided guidance and some comparisons.

It is easier said than done - but hang in there!

Default Thanks!

KubMilegaGC - thanks for all the support.

I am now waiting for October 1st, attorney said that they will send an inquiry through AILA. I am not sure if I should call USCIS now, as they tell me to call after 60 days based on the response they sent to the inquiry that was made by the local senator.

I also got a response for my 09/04 Infopass appointment today. It says "Based on the documentation you have provided, your cases qualifies for expedited processing. You should hear back from us within 45-60 days. If you do not hear back from us within 60 days, please call us back.

I have no clue what that means? I have not provided them any documentation in the last 2 years. LUD on my case is from April 2009 (when I filed for AP/EAD) and status update is for the document they sent to me for FP in September 2007.

I filed for AP last year in May 2008 and didnt see any updates at that time either. I have no idea where my case is or whats going on with it. Let's hope for the best.

Again, congrats to you. After 16 days of pain and agony, I am glad you got your GC today, you can now relax and move on with your life. You too have been great support in the last 3-4 days.

Default Congrats KabMilegaGC

Congrats KabMilegaGC on getting that magic email.
We are still waiting for our turn- Today my attorneys decided to take pity on us and they said that they are going to write to USCIS about pending application. Maybe that will do the trick.
In some weird way, there was no anxiety at all when dates were not current as there was no hope at all. Life was going on just fine but this wait is proving to be more difficult.

This is the most wonderful news for you I believe, and this is the day the Lord has made for you, when you least expect it. Hearty congrats.
OK, coming to the point, how did you open 2nd SR within a week. Did you get any response for the 1st SR or 2nd SR at all? If so, what was it?
Did the senator's contact help you at all?
What did u ask when you went for the infopass?
What do you think, that could have triggered CPO? May be your rep at the infopass sent an email to NSC?
Sorry to bug you with a lot of questions... just trying to do an anlysis on what would have worked for you.

Thanks @natraj @fatjoe @Vikki @apb - thanks for all suggestions -

@ cali - talk to senators's immigration liaison and explain the contradicting response(s) that you are receiving and ask if they could help - at this time lets take a diff approach - let them ping USCIS rather that you..see if that works.

@fat - 2nd SR was for wife and we seriously think that IT did the trick

I am wishing THE BEST for all of you who are waiting...next few days guys - you will get it! 100%

Default Yes, will do

Thanks kubmilegaGC!

I will call the senators immigration liaison tomorrow. Hopefully she will not tell me that they cannot do anything besides what they have done because that is what they told me in September last year when I got a standard response last year.

Unfortunately nobody understands the pain and agony we are going through. For them, its just another day at the office, they couldnt care less. Nevertheless, I am going to try tomorrow.....hey, cant give up that easy.

I will call CS again tomorrow, I dont mind being yelled at and I am gonna tell her this time that I have not opened a SR. Atleast, she will then transfer my call to a IO.

Let's see what tomorrow has in store for me!!
