My wife and I started our case in April of 2018. We hired a lawyer and he filed the i485 and I 30 on our behalf. On 3/7/19 we got a message from the NVC about them accepting my wife’s case and to pay a fee and upload supporting documents. We went to our lawyer and he said before we file he has to file an Unlawful Presence Waiver because my wife originally entered illegally. Took us about 6 months to get everything together we needed for that.
A year from 3/7/2019 we get a letter from the NVC saying if we don’t finish the application her case will be closed. Lawyer says they will follow up but cases are behind due to COVID. Makes sense. Wife gets a biometrics appt in November and as of yet we have had no updates. Meantime when I log in the case still shows pending but I wonder if everything is held up because we haven’t finished this part of the process even though lawyer says wait for Waiver to be accepted before continuing. Those who have gone through the process does this seem right?
