Hello there,

I have a question.
My mother (permanent resident) submitted a petition (I-130) for me in 2016.
I was over 21 years old so my category is F2B. We included all the documents required and shipped it to the USCIS. We also included my passport (no copies, the original one) in the package. As you probably know, they don't review those documents right away so the petition hasn't been approved yet. The thing is that, at first, we thought that this process wouldn't last so long so I never left the country. I also couldn't because you know, I didn't have my passport.

It was my fault for including my passport in the package when I shouldn't have done it (I didn't know it wasn't required) but I think it's also the USCIS' fault for not reviewing the documents fast enough and ship my passport back to me

My question is: Will the 10 year bar apply to me because of this? I've read that when the USCIS has some kind of fault in the process, the unlawful presence doesn't apply. Is that true?

For the record, my priority date is still not current.

Thanks in advance!

I submitted my Family-based Green card application on March 2019 to Chicago office.

Following is my timeline

3/28 - Submitted Application
4/26 - Finger Print (Since then my fingerprint review was complete and not updates after that)

Recently anyone received an interview in Fairfax office or waiting for an interview in Fairfax office can you please share your timeline. I would like to see how long I need to wait.

Hi there, I wanted to share my experience to hopefully get some opinions on how long my waiting game still has.

Jan 20 - Submitted I-485 (family based) and I-765 forms with all documents (+ other needed forms)
Feb 4 - USCIS received my petition
Feb 8 - Appointment notice for biometrics
Feb 28 - Biometrics appointment
Mar 6 - USCIS Ready to schedule an interview
Apr 17 - Interview scheduled
Apr 25 - Notice with interview date
May 22 - Interview

I got VERBAL approval from the lady that interviewed me and my partner, but she needed one last paper. She gave us a letter formally asking for that paper as more evidence, which we mailed on May 28.
Case Status is still "Interview Was Completed And My Case Must Be Reviewed".
Never heard from my EAD process (maybe because the I 485 was so fast?) that I submitted with the I-485.

Any insights?

My family and myself was approved for submitting DS 260 with docs and fees which we did, however now we’ve got a notification saying that they’re re-evaluating the relationship between me and my sis who is the principal. What should I do? Is this normal? Should I approach them for clarification? Will this further delay our green cards? We applied through F4 category. I was honestly thinking we just had the interview to clear but now I’m not too sure.
