  • i-751 approved by VSC

    Hi,

    I have been reading the postings on this board for sometime now. I appreciate the helpfulness of some of the posters. Thought I will post the good news for those who are anxiously awaiting a decision from VSC on their i-751 application.

    Today (5/17) I received a typed letter from DHS informing me that my pending application for removal of condition on my permanent residence has been approved. It also provides the usual directions about going to the local office with photos and passport etc to apply for new I-551.

    Well, what a relief, I did not expect to hear from VSC for almost another year. I feel so relieved. Here is my time line:

    - Married April: 2001
    - Applied for i-485: April 2001 (Marraige based)
    - AOS interview and i-485 approval: 10/16/2001
    - Submitted i-751" 7/16/2003
    - Received approval for i-751: 5/17/2004.

    So I am all psyched up, off to N-400 in July

    For those interested to know. My wife and I have been living together for over 4 years before getting married. We submitted our joint tax returns, joint home ownership papers, joint bank account papers, joint benefits etc papers. Did not send a letter from friends\relatives. Took pictures of family andtravel together.

    So there it is, I was not in the least concerned about proving bona fida. Just tired and anxious of waiting. But I guess the system is moving fast for a change even though the processing date on the CIS web site hasnt budged from 1/3/2003. My submission date was 7/16/2003.

    Good luck to all who are looking to make a honest and peaceful life in Good Ole US of A.

    Peace...

            With this and Paddy's approval that go as far as June/July 2003...I hope that we'll see a great advance in the next VSC processing times.

            Have you tried placing a referral on the status of your case through the 1-800 number?

              Thanx Y'all for the kind words.

              I suppose since this forum has been my only source of information on immigration related issues and first-hand experiences. USCIS does not help assauge the anxieties of applicants waiting to hear the verdic on their course of rest of their lives. So forums like these provide invaluable service and support. I was morally obliged to share the news of the outcome of my application.

              Keep up the good work and lets avoid the pissing contests, wounds of words are much harder to heal.

              To all the applicants awaiting decision, keep the faith and a positive outlook. Looks like there is definitely improvement in the processing speed at VSC.

                Not yet. I have been putting off making inquiries but I think that it is time to start asking the questions.. I really don't want to know the answers though...

                I think I will keep an eye on the mailbox for one more week then start phoning....

                One thing has me thinking - if VSC doens't consider the applciation a 'slam dunk', it will then forward it to the district office who, in turn, determines if they want to interview the applicant of not. Perhaps that is why we are so many months behind these guys - it could be that our cases have been sent to the districts for further 'determination'.

                One way or another - it is time to find out. I simply can't keep this up anymore - it is eating me alive.

                      ARQU:

                      Today I join the chat with a lawyer room here at ILW, and asked questions to Arthur Zabenko, I had email him in the past and he was very kind everytime I had a question he answered it. Today in the chat I asked him how much would approximately he charge for appealing an I-751 waiver based denial, and he said that around $750 which I think is good price considering that he seems to know what he is doing. I just hope I will never need him.

                      This is his website:

                          I call the 1-800 # to see if I could find out if my file has been transfered to Newark. I could not get transfered to an Immigration Officer to check on the system. I guess I just wait.

                            Guys, a watched pot never boils.

                            Remember what Michael said about easy/hard cases? Makes sense.
