Derivative I485 issue

Hello,

My permanent residency was approved in April. My wife's application is pending and there have been no updates on that since filing in June 07. She has not submitted the TB XRay as she was pregnant at that time. In the past 4 months she has called the USCIS several times (once or twice every 15 days) and seems to be getting the same mechanical response. She also has 3 service requests pending regarding her case placed via INFOPASS appointments and calls to customer service.
Now my question (after the elaborate background :) ) is what are her options?

How can she expedite the RFE ( medical report for TB)?
Should she contact senator/ congressperson or somebody else regarding this?
How can we find out if all else is done as far as her case is concerned?
When can we expect an Immigration Officer to "look" at her case?
Do INFOPASS etc help?

Thanks a bunch for any help/tips etc regarding this.

She should contact senator/ congressman office with all the details and copy of her I-485

contacted senator too - not much help

My wife has contacted the senator for our area. The senators staff
filed an inquiry on her behalf and the response obtained is that her
fingerprints have expired. They expired maybe a few days before the
inquiry.
Now who else can she contact to make sure they request her TB result
as well as the recently expired fingerprints as soon as possible.
Her priority date is current for a really long time. And the primary
(my) application is already approved.

thanks.

ginnu and immi_mygc

thank you for your help.

here's what my wife has done.
called the customer service number only to be told
that they cannot schedule biometric through the toll free
number and that the local office appointment was required.

but the lady looked up on the case details and has written a
note to the tsc that her case is beyond processing times,
she has been told by senators office that her fingerprints
have expired and that she needs to be sent an RFE on TB report.

my wife has noted the referral number and should track it after
45 days.

thanks.

hopefully new year rings in some happy tones where we can put
12 year sagas behind us.

how to speak with IO?

the question may sound silly, but i do not know how to get the IO
directly.
i called the toll free number and then the options 1-2-3.
spoke with an agent who gave her details and asked the
regular questions. i am pretty sure she was not an IO.

can we directly speak with IO from service center where the
application is pending? if yes, then how?

Unbelievable USCIS

My wife's case was pending from last one year. Two weeks back she talked with CSR and they told her that case was approved. I cant beleive that .. so after 3 days again she called and got the same answer that case was approved. But we didn't got any emails/ paper document and so on...
So we decided to take an infopass. There office told her that the case is still pending and with the officer waiting for approval.
What should we say now ??

I had a similar issue with my wife. I was approved March this year with out 2 kids, my wife did not. We keep asking the info line and got the same repsonse that they were waiting for the principal to be approved which was me and I was approved. Fianally After 2 previous infopass meeting I got someone at the local office to request the application to be sent to the local office as it was apparent that the application were seperated and unless someone broght them back together again nothing was ever going to happen. We gat a call 45 days later to go in for a interview which we did. another 45 days later my wife got a request ot go in to fill out a I-89 which is a request for a GC. Now we are waiting for the GC to get orderd. we had to push the local office to get our I 485's but once they did the process went smooth from that point onwards.
I suggest getting your local office to take on the caes to get it resovled. Once the forms get serperated it is almost an act of congress to get them back together.
