Finally... It's almost 22 months now, but it's over... Received the approval emails this afternoon. I don't even feel that excited, guess I am too exhausted. Anyway, this board is great. Thank you for all your help and good luck to everybody.

BTW, see my signature for time frames.

I sent an email last October and got response in January saying name check was pending. Then I sent 4 letters between Feb 20 to March 24 to the FBI (2 certified, 2 express) requesting expedite. They finally responded to my last letter a few weeks ago saying name check was completed.

nvmnd,

First of all, Congrats. I am sure you will soon come out of the process exhaustion and would get excited about the freedom you got now.

Could you please tell me where you sent the email ( id) for name check and the letters (address)? Any help on the contents of the mail and letter would also be a great help.

My 140 approved a month back but 485 pending due to name check.


Thanks a lot in advance.

Would you mind sharing the format you used to send the certified mail/letter to FBI. I have been sending them emails from last 5 months with no avail.

Thanks

nvmnd,
congrats on your approval and enjoy your freedom ( atleast it gives you the freedom to pursue your interests other than the work defined in labor certificate :) ).

We would appreciate if you could post the format u used for expediting the name check with fbi. I filed my 485 in sep2003 and still waiting.

Thank you, guys. Sorry didn't get a chance to reply earlier... Here is what I did:

Sent an inquiry email in Oct 04, I just gave out my personal identification and asked for the status, received response in Jan 05 with a pending status.
FBINNCP@ic.fbi.gov

Send certified letters to Hooton and Hardy around 2/20/2005, using the format from this thread:

http://boards.immigrationportal.com/showthread.php?t=136848

I was mostly complaining about the lengthy wait, I guess the words were too strong since I didn't get a response.

Two weeks later, sent another letter by Fedex to Hardy, using the format from this thread:

http://boards.immigrationportal.com/showthread.php?t=162149&page=2&pp=30

As you can see, the words were much softer, but I didn't get a response either.

On 3/24/05, I sent a letter to Jonathan I. Solomon, Executive Assistant Director, Administration, FBI, Supposedly Hooton's boss. This time, I was trying to be both firm yet polite. I basically stated the fact that I had been waiting for >20 months while 98% of the name check got completed in 120 days according to the FBI congressional testimony, and the lengthy wait had caused emotional stress and financial loss to me. Sorry I couldn't post my letter, it had too much personal information. Anyway, I would suggest to read the following thread, especially posts from wonderfulboy between January 4 and January 15.

http://boards.immigrationportal.com/showthread.php?t=56637&page=34&pp=30

I got the response on 4/7/05 saying the name check was finally completed. I can't be sure whether it was my last letter or simply cumulative effects of all; or it's simply my turn. It doesn't really matter anyway. I wasn't going to send another letter cause I thought I had exhausted all of my options, I guess I was lucky it did finally generate a postive response.

Good luck to you all.

What is the role ?

Hi,

What did your Attorney tell ? Did he/she helped in anyways ? Cause in my case the Attorney says he will handle all the case and I must not worry. And it is very hard to believe this guy !!

BTW, the Links are really good.
