Talking news travels fast

Yes, I got the approval email on Friday.
I'm pretty sure that I updated our tracker too.

Thanks for the wishes.

I raised a second service request about 23rd April, so USCIS had until 24th May to adjudicate. I had them record in that service request if there was no action by 5/24 that they would next hear from my Congressman's office, and I had been preparing for WOM if that got nowhere.

My wife had to travel yesterday, so I'd been a little distracted recently. I just got round to calling law makers about bills this morning. So I'm still active, and still a spokesman.

She will be in the limbo state when she returns not really H4 but no I-551 in her hand either, and no AP. However, all my research on this leads me to believe that IO's are sensible humans, indeed we spoke with an IO last night at the airport, I've given her the receipt notices and USCIS memo about H class travel without AP, and a cover note.

Congrats Mark. Must be a big relief.

You have done much for the high skilled immigrants and been a wonderful ambassador for IV. I hope you will continue your association with IV.

You ma not have thought about it, but few years from now folks here may be campaigning to resolve citizenship backlogs. Let's keep this good thing going!!

thanks,

I'm still calling law makers, still making contributions, still harassing my Congressman , and still spokesperson.

What I'm not doing is checking visa bulletin, processing times, and trackers.

Congrats Mark, we are happy for you.

Fellow IVr’s – Does anyone know of some place or any institution that awards individual projects for being environment friendly?. We can propose Mark’s house for the award. This can be a small token of appreciation for what he has been doing for us. Just a thought…
