    thanks sprint, cant decide if i should file for motion to reopen or reconsider or both, my lawyer said reopen but that can take up to a year, or should i just refile for I-485???? woulnd that be quicker. or can i do both at the same time???
    Department of state cant issue me a copy of my lost IAP 66 nor can Embassy or the au pair program, because they dont keep hard copies over 3 years, all i have now is the letter from the program stating that i am not subject, i know it s not goverment issued,but it mentions how the program is designated by Dep. of state.Will that help? well, i dont have anything else.... any help appreciated, thanks.

    You need to understand the appellate procedure, that's why you should discuss these things with your lawyer directly. Sprint is not a lawyer and she cannot provide the kind of advice you seem to need.

    So, if you're denied on lack of evidence, what's to reconsider? I would start by asking that. Wouldn't you like to reopen the process so you can introduce evidence?

    Appeals, in general, only deal with questions and evidence already introduced. If you want to present new facts, then you need a new trial.

    I hope this helps you understand a bit more what the process is all about.

    However, nobody on this board can give you a clear answer or advice on how to proceed. That's why you have a lawyer, it's not a bad idea to make the lawyer earn his/her pay! lol

    -THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE-

    Sprint, where are u?:-(just a little update, what i was able to do, is to have the American Embassy in my country write a letter stating that my J1 visa was not subject to the 2 year residency.....IS THIS GOING TO BE ENOUGH PROOF FOR THEM??? i cnat get the copy of myy Iap thats final. i lost it, for the waiver i have to have a copy of it...so my only proof as of now is the letter from the embassy signed by the consular and a letter from the head of the program that i came with stating the same that the program does not require the 2 year....if these dont help then i dont know what will.
    any thoughts?? oh and im filing motion to reopen...

    Bianca, I think Davdah's and Houston's advice and info is worth reading.
    I don't know enough about this situation, I am sorry.

    Aneri on here, if he comes by, might have some additional knowledge if anyone.

    I hope this gets sorted for you Bianca, I can imagine the frustration you are going through right now.

I would love to help since I kind of feel bad, like I opened this pandora box ... if I remember well, I told bianca 2year HR may be an issue way back and she should look into it. With the proofs she had, I've never expected it will come to this.

    I'll try to do some research tomorrow.

    Yes, if I were you, I would file a FOIA request (G-639?) in conjunction with all else that you do now. It's free and they relatively respond quite quickly now with copies of documents on a disc.
