I was given the scare tactics back in December - so I didn't apply for my AP. Told that even if I did have my AP it was no guarantee I'd be permitted back into the USA. I am waiting for my adjustment of status to be processed (18months now), was not here illegally. When I was scheduled for my fingerprinting for the FBI check, I thought for sure I'd finally have my appointment. But no such luck. So here it is, june 17, I applied for my AP and it shows them taking 90-120 days to process. My daughter's HS graduation is next friday in Canada and it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to go. I'm heartbroken. I've called everyone, senators, congressmen, etc. Nothing. No one can help me. I just want to go to this milestone in my only daughters life. I'm just sick about all of this. I have a wonderful husband, a great job and a house here in IL...but I'm separated from my child. BTW. if you apply online, do NOT call to make an appointment for your pictures and prints as it says on the receipt. It is an error. You must sent a copy of the receipt, two pictures, and a coverletter of why you should be granted AP to the address shown at the bottom of the confirmation receipt. I made the mistake of following the directions on the receipt and it cost me over a week in processing time...and 3 hours of driving to a application support center. Not to mention the hideously rude treatment I received at the support center.
If you have any thoughts of travelling at all....apply right away.
