Thread: Help needed, no additional news after interview

  1. #1
    I would like to start off by saying that I am writing this on behalf of my parents, since #1, they don't speak English and #2, they cannot use a computer to save their lives. Anyway, my father's employer is sponsoring his application for permanent residency (sorry, I don't know all the terms/numbers involved with INS/DOS) and after about two years, we had our interview on August 22, 2005. Our lawyer said that the officer had approved the case but that our passports would not be stamped because they had run out of visas, which would be "renewed" after Congress was back in session. She said it might take another 2 months before we received the green card via mail; however, three months later, we have heard nothing. I checked the case status online and it has not been updated since January 14, 2005. We haven't even received the congratulatory letter. If it makes a different, we live in Noralk, Connecticut and our interview was in Hartford. Basically, what I'm asking is what we should do; should we just wait or is there a certain course of action we can take?

    My following question is related more with college than with immigration, but I figured I'd ask anyway. Our lawyer also said that day that as far as financial aid for college was concerned, I was a permanent resident. However, my state school and several of other ones are asking for a physical copy of the green card, not just the Alien Registration Number (which we have). As such, I don't know if I should check off the box that says "permanent resident" if I don't yet have the green card to send. Am I really still considered an "international applicant" eventhough our case has been approved and we're just waiting for the green card to physically arrive? Thank you very much for any help or sources of information, I would grealy appreciate it.

    Dont listent to that D u m b a s s. As for your college, to be considered in-state you must have permanent residensey for atleast one year in your state. As far as the financial aid goes, you will have to have a green card in order to apply. If you go to your High School or College counselors, they can answer those question more accurately.
