Exclamation Contacted Congress person for delayed I-765 - how soon do they reply?

HI all!

I just faxed over my husband's I-765 information over to Senator Dodd in CT because his application hasn't been approved yet and his interim is expiring. USCIS 1-800 # told my husband to pay another $175 and apply again...that's a lot of money!!!! Why should we have to pay when it's their fault for not processing it on time or not giving us longer extension?!

Anyways, just needed to vent....Thanks for reading....hehehe

Do any of you know how long it takes for the congress person to reply back about our case? I know some people have seen wonders by contacting their congress rep....they're been approved very fast....so a question for them is...how soon after you've sent the letter have you seen your approval online??

please let me know!!!! we don't wanna pay the $175!!!

I guess it depends on the congressman-I haven't had any luck with my EAD issue. Wrote the Director of NBC a certified letter, no response. Wrote both the representative and senator. The senator acknowledged the email-period. The representative sent a letter that gave me a local POC. I have had several conversations with the POC and she says that she can not get any response from the liasion. Not impressed!

I have seen a lot of messages here where people have contacted a person
in congress. Some have said they got approved shortly thereafter. Others
don't indicate what if anything happened.
My question is: Has anyone heard *directly* that any application was
approved or helped in any way?
From what I read when you contact someone in congress you are passed to
a liasion person, a POC (whatever that is) , or you hear nothing at all.
The bottom line seems to be that no one knows for sure if the contact
helped at all.
We are always being told to contact someone in congress for help. I just
have to wonder if in fact it does any good at all.

Capt. Tuttle,

I understand where you're coming from. At this point my husband's desperate. He has 3 months to go on his interim EAD and he can't get another interim so he needs to find out now if it's going to get approved or does he need to pay the $175 AGAIN and apply for another EAD....i bet if we do apply it won't get approved fast and at least he'll be able to get another interim EAD for the 2nd application and won't have to quit his job.

I will keep you updated on what happened with his letter to the senator.

Good Luck!

IMO the "value-add" a political representative provides is that they are usually able to get a response to a status inquiry when you yourself are being ignored. I don't think they "help" by pressuring the CIS to all of a sudden expedite your case over other people's cases. If your case is tremendously overdue due to a fault on CIS's part, a congressman should be able to point that out to them and thereby get things moving as they should be. But if a case is considered to be on a normal timeline, congressmen cannot get it expedited unless there are very extenuating circumstances.

In my personal experience, we did ask for my representative's help and we did get approved soon after that. We had been waiting for over ten months after a "successful" AOS interview with no approval, supposedly due to an incomplete background check. We made status inquiries twice on our own without any response from our local CIS office. All my congressman's immigration liaison did was make a standard inquiry to the CIS, but the difference between her making the inquiry and me making an inquiry was that she actually got a response. The response was still that we were pending the results of the background check, but 3 weeks later we were approved.

The timing seems a bit coincidental to me, but I'll never know if we were up for approval then anyway or if the congressman's inquiry was what made our case move forward.

Hi Rukhie,

Why can't he get a second interim? I've seen a few people here on this forum get a second interim successfully.

Hope something comes through for you soon, though!

Thanks Rukhie. Good luck to you too.
FYI the on line status for EAD (I-765) at the National Center says March
9th. Our NOA was for March 26th. My wife got her interim EAD good until
Febuary, I think. So, if the on line time line for EAD is correct (I
don't have much hope that it is) she should get her EAD before her
interim one expires. This is probably wishfull thinking on our part.

That is the reason for my question. Was it coincidental or not?
If I were a memeber of congress (fast chance) I would want the person I
helped to KNOW that I helped. I would make sure they knew by a card,
letter, email, phone call, or any way I could. People do vote (well,
some people vote), and if people (us) knew that a member of congress had
helps us I think the least we would do is mark our ballot for someone
who had done us a favor.
My wife got a form postcard (not even a letter) from Senator Bill
Nelson. It more or less just said thanks for contacting my office. I
expected a little more from a man I have admired for a very long time.

I don't know about other people, but in our case I don't think my congressman's staff knew if they helped or not. I mean, unless the CIS admits that they eff'ed up and your file's been sitting in a crack between two desks and that's why you haven't been approved, how would your congressman know for sure that it was their efforts that got it moving again? They might suspect they helped, but if I were them, I too would be wary about making such a claim.

Fair enough. But, if the liason person simply calls and requests a
status inquiry, have they done anything more than we have done? Are they
told to call back in 30 days? Do they? I doubt it.
I guess what I'm saying is - why do people recommend that you contact a
member of congress if it does no good? Why waste the time? Sure, it
doesn't hurt, but does it help? Maybe it makes some feel better. Well, I
don't need to feel better. I need to see some results!

They may not have done anything more than you have done, but the point is, the CIS seems to take them more seriously than they do us ordinary good citizens.

I am not of the opinion that it doesn't help if you contact a political representative. I'm just saying it might be hard for them to take the credit! :-) I do think it helps in cases where you are experiencing a great delay compared to other cases in your local district office or service center. Rightly or wrongly, the CIS pays more attention to a congressman than they do to you and me.

Do any of you know how long it takes for the congress person to reply back about our case? I know some people have seen wonders by contacting their congress rep....they're been approved very fast....so a question for them is...how soon after you've sent the letter have you seen your approval online??

please let me know!!!! we don't wanna pay the $175!!!

Rukhie:-)
Hey there Ruhkie

I contacted my representative 9 days ago and I got my I-765 approved 3 days later, hope you hear from your rep soon!!
Keep us updated!!

Wow look at all the discussion going on here!

i just wanna believe that the congressperson helps...because i want my husbands eAD to come soon. why should he have to pay another $175 when his first application hasn't even been approved....and can you even apply for a second EAD when your 1st hasn't been approved?

If sen. Dodd doesn't help...i'm def. not voting for him!!!! and I will email him with my complaint...hahaha...don't think it'll do much good though

Well, Rene, He did get his second interim...for 5 months and his 1st was for 3 months so therefore that's 240 days and they won't extend it for him...it's expiring jan 12 2005. I wish he could though :-(

Hyper...did u call your rep. to say that you got your approval? did they even send out the inquiry or did it just happen that it was approved on its own? i want to think that they did something...hehehe

keep us in your prayers!

Why should we have to pay when it's their fault for not processing it on time or not giving us longer extension?!

Anyways, just needed to vent....Thanks for reading....hehehe

Do any of you know how long it takes for the congress person to reply back about our case? I know some people have seen wonders by contacting their congress rep....they're been approved very fast....so a question for them is...how soon after you've sent the letter have you seen your approval online??

please let me know!!!! we don't wanna pay the $175!!!
