Hello everybody. My friend is going through employment based AOS for years and I have been watching this board for a long time for ideas and advice. I guess you could say that I am a long time watcher, first time writer. I will list below the dates of his paperwork, but the question is what to do next. We've been waiting for 2 years on the AOS. Dates to follow.
The main question is that the last case update is "Initial Review" and has been unchanged for over two years. He called in January and was told to expect a letter in 45 days. The letter basically stated that they will contact him if they need more information. He has been for fingerprints twice.
After extensive reading in the boards I am wondering if his is stuck in the process. Is it too soon in the process to be stuck in the retrogression? Or is something going on with background or fingerprints.
I have also read about mailing a state senator to find out some information.
Any information is great. And, thank you in advance.
