    That's amazing! Very happy for you! I got USCIS approval 6 days later after DOS approved mine and a week later in the mail. Your case should be closed before February is over. Sigh of relief and go celebrate!!!

    Also remember the government shutdown is greatly delaying the process

    12/12/2018 USCIS approved my case, and today 12/20 I received it in the mail. My 16-month wait is over, I can breathe easy. If anyone has questions, I will do my best to answer. Otherwise, keep patience and don't lose hope. best of luck to every one of you!

    State Department received my documents on December 03 from USCIS and approved it on December 06. So I am considering this as a success. I still have to hear back the final decision from USCIS. Also, I did not work with a lawyer, but I did have a one-hour consultation with an immigration lawyer. I can give his information if anyone needs it. His consultation was really helpful for me to work on my own. Timeline: September 6, 2017 - DOS received my DS-3035 (and other documents) September 28, 2017 - USCIS received my I-612 July 17, 2018 - RFE issued by USCIS October 02, 2018 - RFE evidence sent to USCIS by me December 03, 2018 - DOS received documents from USCIS December 06, 2018 - DOS sends a favorable recommendation Now I am waiting for the final results

    State Department received my documents on December 03 from USCIS and approved it on December 06, so yesterday! Took them 3 days to approve. But to be fair, they received DS-3035 (alongside other documents) on September 06, 2017, so 15 months ago! Hopefully, this arduous journey is over and I can feel freer now!

    Update on my case: on November 28 USCIS asked for second opinion, it said on my account. So my case is on hold. I know it is different for everyone, some hear back in less than a week, some wait for months for DOS decision. I am keeping my fingers crossed. Anyone have any news on their case?

    You never had to send an RFE? Seems like you lucked out. Congratulations!

    Any chance this was sent as a mistake? Perhaps you should call and clarify. Agree though, this is insane

    What in the world? I swear this is so unnecessarily difficult. Let's hope that this is a request for a document page or something. Let us know
