This is in reference to my visa application that has been kept pending under221g (Yellow Slip) no further documents asked. My Passport No is G4159236.
I applied for a visitor’s visa in the B1/B2 category & gave my non-immigrant visa interview on 21st Feb 2013 at US consulate Mumbai. My application ID is AA002W9VKX; after the interview visa officer returned back my passport and handed me a yellow page which mentions" Your visa application is pending for administrative processing. To check status of pending cases, please visit http://mumbai.usconsulate.gov/refused-or-pending-visa.html. If your CEAC barcode number is on one of the lists, please submit your passport, courier envelope and the pending letter to the nearest Document Drop-off Location.
I am very grateful to the consulate to have considered my case and have not refused me the Visa but instead, have kept my case pending for the administrative processing which I certainly agree is important from your end.
I have requested the US consulate to kindly grant me the Visa to visit the USA temporarily only because I have a court case with my X-husband for the custody of my daughter aged 3.10 years, who is a US citizen.
I had a court case previously on the 4th March 2013’ but, very fortunately I have got an extension on the court date to 28th March 2013’. It is very important for me to be present before the court date in the court; so that I can gather a few evidences which can be favourable to my case and make it stronger. My attorney is unable to do much since only one of the parties is available and she doesn’t have enough references to fight the case.
I have all the necessary documents to prove the court case as well as the upcoming date for the same. I earnestly request the US consulate to please consider my case and grant me the permission to travel to the USA before the court date and oblige.
I have never had the intention to stay illegal in the USA in the past and hence, I had decided to return to my home country despite of being cheated by my X-husband who also is a US citizen.
I promise to return to my home country no sooner I am done with my court case, even this time. I really feel so helpless with my situation hence, I earnestly request you to please oblige by granting me the authority to travel to the USA and help a mother win her daughter.
When I emailed firstname.lastname@example.org they asked me to wait untill 60 days. Unfortunately I have been trying to explain to the support desk that I have a court case coming up on the 28th March 2013 and the court may not grant me another extension on the date.
Can you please answer the following questions and help?
1. Is there a way to find out the time-frame for administrative processing?
2. What is the reason my application was under administrative processing?
3. Also could you please provide any updates on this case as I cannot wait until 60 days due to my court date.
Please let me know what are the next steps I should be taking?
Thanks and Regards
