Default Please help regarding deportation proceedings

Hi all,

Quick history:
Initiated K-1 Visa process with TSC in October 2001
Received Visa in Montreal in August 2002
Entered U.S. in December 2002
Married in December 2002
Submitted AOS/EAD February 2003
AOS Application returned March 2003 due to fee increase
AOS application resubmitted March 2003
EAD application receipt received April 2003
Informed by Fedex in June 2003 that resubmitted AOS application was lost
AOS application resubmitted again in June 2003
Informed by INS/BCIS that EAD application denied in July 2003
AOS application receipt received August 2003
I-862 "Notice to Appear" (deportation proceedings) received August 2003
EAD application receipt received August 2003

If you read all this and understand, help us make sense of this. Are we not victims of supreme idiocy? My wife could be deported.

It's ridiculous and unfair that this is happening to you but right now you don't need sympathy you need a lawyer - one that is an AILA member.

If you can't afford a lawyer do a search and see if Catholic Charities has a branch near you. You don't have to be a catholic to use them and they specialise in immigration issues. We used them to file our AOS and got through smoothly and quickly.

Wishing you a speedy end to the idiocy. Keep us posted.

Regards

Scarlett's suggestion of seeking legal help is good, but what you might try
first is calling your Congressperson. Call the local office of the Member
of the House of Representatives for your district, and ask to speak with a
staff member in charge of immigration inquiries. Ask to be faxed a Privacy
Release form, then have your wife fill out the form, sign it, and fax it
back to the office with a short letter describing the situation, and a copy
of the AOS receipt and the Notice to Appear. Then call the office back to
be sure the package was received. Call in 2 or 3 days to check whether the
inquiry was initiated.

This kind of obvious, egregious mistake is the kind of thing that often the
Congressperson can have fixed, and you may not have to hire an attorney.

If your wife must appear at a hearing very soon, and the Congressperson
can't work fast enough, be sure to consult with a good immigration attorney
right away.

Thank you for your responses. I know that getting a lawyer would be wise, and I probably will if a court date is set, but I don't want to. Why should I go to the trouble and expense, when it is INS that is at fault? I have contacted our congressman's local office and sent them all the info. I hope this intervention can resolve this issue.
