hi, was the USCIS able to confirm your case is being considered under cross chargeability when you recently called them?

No. I once got the I/O to say it is been charge via Cross charge but the rest say that they can't see that information. A couple of I/O's have said that thye will email the Adjudicatiing Officer who will pull my file and see. Yesterday I was told by an NSC officer that my case is now being reviewed and a decision will be soon made (not sure how much that is true ).

Thinkpad, Since your 485 Received date is not past 30 days of NSC's processing date, were they willing to talk to you. I once called TSE and they didn't give me anything except I have to wait for 30 days after processing days becomes current.

Why do they need this?

2) Proof of waiver for 2 year home residency

Your wife is the dependent isn't she? Was she on J1 and did she convert to F-1?

I tried to get a no objection letter from Ukraine to DOS. But they messed up the verbiage. DOS has asked it to be re-sent. With the political issue soging on between Ukraine, Russia and USA the governemnt it not responding. Therefore the waiver process is still. I have been advised to explain the situation to DOS and CIS and then let them make their decision.

Btw: The advise was from lawyers and my friend's , friend who works in CIS (Local office) .

Hang in there mate, I'm sure that it is not that big a deal since she is a dependent, and they probably will accept unavailability as a reason.

Hey Thinkpad, any updates since 26th of Sept? Did the J1 issue get resolved?
Posted by Thinkpad1978

Thanks for checking. Nope. The case is in resumed status now. CIS recieved RFE repsonse for me and my wife on 10/12. The last LUD was on 10/17. No update after that.

BennyLava- My wife's case got rejected in Nov 2008 as I had expected. I believe now that my case is pre-adjudicated and will have to wait until PD passes Oct 06.

Thinkpad1978 - aren't you filing under EB2 ROW (Cross-charged)? And EB2 Rest-of-the-world is always current ... why would the CIS wait for PD to pass Oct 06? I'm in the same boat as you, just wondering what I should be doing at this time, apart from passively waiting ... thanks :)
