Hard ship waiver

Recommended Posts

Hey, anyone got the approve recently? It took 8 months from USCIS to DOS, and DOS just received the I612 and I613 one week ago, wonder how many month DOS need to make the decision? So stressful!

DOS:

I 612,I 613 Received at january 29 2018

if you case is also sent to California Service Center, maybe they will send out to DOS in the next a few weeks.

Did they ask you for REF?

Thanks Waitingfor for sharing your timeline,

Yes, our case is sent to CSC and I think CSC is the only one processes hardship waiver now.

I haven't heard anything from USCIS yet (except receipt of notice saying they received the case on July 7).

Hi Waitingfor and Power,

Any update from DOS? I thought DOS would be faster than USCIS on hardship based.

Thanks,

Hi, Jzaa246,

It is frustrating, my whole life stuck. Everything is slowly down now not only with the USCIS but also DOS.  Did you try to call USCIS or email them?

Yes, i emailed them but got a generic answer  that an officer is reviewing your case and you will be updated accordingly.

Hi, Power, 

Did you try to contact the congressman, and also i heard sometime there is a delay update on DOS web side, you may just find your final approvel notice in the mail box from USCIS.
