my dad petition was approved. but before that one another letter came saying that the other case was denied.
Which petition? The I-130?How far in the other process was your mother and her ex-husband?
4 years and yeah it was the I-130
No, not how many years. To which step did it get? I-130 only? I-130 and I-485? I-751?
they got I-130 and I-485
And she never got a response on the I-485? So she filed another one and then later got the I-485 from her ex-husband denied?
Yes, everything they got a citation and they when to it. but they say they need it to give another citation but they never send it. so after she got divorce and tried to do again.
I really don't understand. Please do not use they, she, and he. It is very confusing. Can you please just give me a list of things that happened, and the dates they happened?
Did anybody move or otherwise change addresses?
WEll, it seems that these delays have no basis in law. The best thing for you to do at this point is to contact an attorney in your area, and ask that they file a Writ of Mandamus against the USCIS. This is basically your mother suing the federal government to make a decision on the case that they should have made long ago. But first, she needs to get a complete copy of her file to see what is in it. To do that, she needs to file a FOIA request with the USCIS. She can do that here: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.eb1d4c2a3e5b9ac89243c6a7543f6d1a/?vgnextchannel=34139c7755cb9010VgnVCM10000045f3d6a1RCRD&vgnextoid=34139c7755cb9010VgnVCM10000045f3d6a1RCRDThis is the best that I can offer at this point. Clearly something is wrong,an the only way to get it fixed is to force the USCIS to move forward.I hope I have answered your questions. Please click one of five faces to let me know how I've helped.
