        Mohan, Could you expand a bit more on how to use FOIA to get this kind of info? Like what form to fill out, and where to file it. Thanks a lot for your valuable contributions here.

            Freedom of information act is form , you can down fron the INS Local site. there is instruction how to fill it and initially there is no fees required . service wilkl contact you in case of the fees. it should be filed with dept of justice, which reroute the form to other Govt departments. process takes month to 2 months.

              Mohan, yes and? What is your point? Do you imply that if somebody files that form then you can be detained if you are illegal here?How exactly does that work?

                This form will give you information that if there is any outstanding deportation order against you. what you file and all history. if this is clear then you will not be detained.

                    If you are not sure about your status and have been idling for sometime now the best route is to file a freedom of information act ( FOIA ).Although very easy to do you may ask a lawyer to do this for you.Mohan is right it takes bet. 1-2 mos. to get this packet of information. What you'll see are vast of info about you, your bank and credit history etc. etc.Then you will know what happened to your application ...was it terminated , when, why, ...what are lacking docs. or if you are in removal. You will know all about you from this, so I advice you not to go to a battle where you don't have any ammo. and this is how to protect oneself from being detained. If you are armed with all these info it's easy to fight a battle, are you with me? Goodluck!

                              Your case is pending for second security check. many other case are in the same situation. its not that you did somthing wrong but I guess its the backlog from the INS. Ins is going thru changees and new registration bill and impect makes other area pushed backward. bear it. I went to seminar yesterday and found out this mess.
                              talk to your lawyers. they might have better idea of swearing date.
