Default Life After New Namecheck Process: Preadjudication of Retrogressed Cases??

So the USCIS finally knows about it
On the other note, those 88 cents I spent to download that document from the court site are my best investment since I've bought a house. Anybody needs green points?

I had three separate conversations in the last few weeks -- with a TSC IO, with staff in Michael Aytes office and with staff in the Ombudsmans Office, all of whom confirmed that cases are not assigned to adjudicators if their priority dates are not current i.e. no preadjudication of retrogressed cases.

I made strong arguments to both staffers about how unjust this is since if dates move, retrogressed cases won't be good to go, and unused visas go to less retrogressed or unretrogressed categories.

Now these two posters on seem to suggest that retrogressed cases are being given to adjudicators....it would be great if other retrogressed applicants posted about what they are hearing.

One thing I would like to know on those lines assume yours is true that cases do not go to officers unless PD current. So how does it work. Lets say today PD is 2003. Tomorrows VB PD becomes 04. So assume 2 cases one with RD apr 07 and one with may 07 both with same PD 04. Would april case go to him? What if during one month period VB rolls back. If hes not done would he keep case back?

It would be really great to get clarification on this issue. Hope it's taken up by AILA in the immediate future like you indicated.

All,

I did not contact the Ombudsmans Office or Aytes or AILA or DOS in order to discuss my personal case. It was just a part of my now years long efforts to bring attention to certain issues -- I've been speaking with staff at the Ombudsmans office for several years now, some issues and recommendations that have appeared in his report over the years were the result of these conversations.

I'm not sure it will be taken up by AILA -- I was so surprised by the resistance I encountered when I asked a well known attorney with a blog (v. popular with IV members) to submit this question to the AILA committee which reviews topics for liason meetings, and it took several rounds of email and some very severe rhetoric from me to even get him to send it to the committee! I feel it is terrible that our self-professed advocates hesitate even to ASK a question, let alone propose specific reforms...

The deadline for submitting questions is Feb 15 -- so if you are interested, get in touch with your attorneys and send in the question. Maybe numbers will move them.

Can you provide some more information on the AILA liaison meetings? Excuse my ignorance but I have never heard of it before.

Can we ask AILA to support the letter campaign? Specifically, can we ask AILA to push for recapturing 218K unused visas and clarification on how they might be allocated, if recaptured?

Thanks!

It is my understanding that these liaison meetings are to discuss specific administrative and procedural issues at the service centers (not to discuss major reform). To get an idea of the topics covered see http://www.aila.org/content/default.aspx?bc=6721|6727
The docs themselves are available to AILA members only but you can see the topics discussed.

So to the extent that you have specific questions about the adjudication process itself you can send them to an AILA member and ask them to submit those questions to the AILA Liaison committee which may or may not choose to ask that question in the liaison meeting with USCIS -- each session has specific sub topics so they don't address every question out there.

Recapture and other major changes to the law are likely handled by other committees at AILA.
