      Section 245i is no longer available. Unless you have an existing application pending under 245i, you're out of luck. It's highly unlikely that the Congress will reenact Section 245i, which I believe was last available in April 2001.

        Hey Pooky,

        I filed under LIFE's 245(i) when it was extended/reinstated in early 2001 (as mentioned by SunDevilUSA). In the summer of 2002, my application for Labor Certification was filed in Maryland.

        $5,000 in lawyer's fees (and counting!) later, and I'm STILL waiting. In the mean time, I'm stuck in limbo. Not allowed to travel home to see my family, can't work, can't drive (no Social Security). I swear, some days I want to give up, because not knowing when it will end is the worst part, you know? I mean, I knew it was going to take a long time, and I was sooo grateful to have the opportunity to file, that I was fully prepared to wait a couple of years. But this is getting ridiculous! I've joined this forum in the hopes of finding other souls who have filed (in 'real life' I don't know anyone else who is in the same situation) so that we can encourage each other. I'm REALLY down in the dumps. So, anyone else out there? And Pooky, did you also file in 2001? If so, in which state? How're you coping? Is your lawyer nice? And if I may ask, how much have you paid so far?

        Thank you.
