My husband and I are both citizens and natives (passort holders) of India but my husband was born in a country that falls in the registration list. He has not special registered as of now. I have applied and got I-140 approval for both of us under NIW (self sponsorship category). We applied for our I-485 and travel parole in October 2002 and I received my travel parole approval in March 2003. However my lawyer now informs us that INS is still reveiwing my husbands application to see if he requires special registration.
Our lawyer says that he does not need to register as of now. Does anyone have any experience with this situation? Will he have to special register? How does this affect chances of getting the greencard in the same time frame as me?
Any advice is welcome!
