    Embassy lost paperwork.....They need to re-phrase it to "We lost your paperwork"

    My husband was approved at the end of January of this year. He submitted all the requested paperwork at the beginning of February, 2012. I sent a couple of emails and the embassy FINALLY emailed me back informing me that they had notified my husband about missing papers. My husband never received any notification as to what he was missing. At this point we have to re-submit everything. I am very frustrated to see that they make it sound that I never submitted the paperwork when they should have admitted to losing it themselves. I can't believe the lack of organization in the embassy!. Now, Ill probably have to wait another week or so to re-submit and then wait another 6-10 weeks for my husband to be back with his family. Has anyone been through what I'm going through?

    You may want to try contacting your senator. Even though it seems the consulate is kind of fixing their mistake, having a senator immigration liaison do an inquiry can sometimes remedy the lost paperwork issue so it doesn't happen again.

    Some friends of mine had to do this after USCIS somehow misplaced his entire file after he entered the US, but the senator's office contacted USCIS and suddenly the file appeared. They had no record of him at all even though they sent him a green card. I don't think USCIS deliberately loses things, but this type of accidental misplacing of things is really bizarre and can have a major impact on people's cases.

    Krystal,

    We were approved Jan. 17,
    My hubby turned in all paperwork Jan 27.
    March 7 they tell us we need to resubmit I864,
    March 8 we re-submit
    March 27 we are told Counsel has paperwork
    April 12, we are still waiting.
    I will tell you I have kept constant communication with embassy over email and phone. It is very frustrating to get them same response everry time..... "your case is under revision it will take 5 -6 weeks for it to be reviewed"
    At this point am like whatever I guess he will get here when he gets here.

    Crisrivera: I'm sorry you went through the same thing due to their lack of organization. At least your closer to being called anytime. Good Luck and keep me updated as to how long it took for them to call you.

    Cupcake: Thank you. I have contacted the Senator, hopefully they can help me find out where his papers are, if not to try to expedite them after submitting the information.

    It is pretty ridiculous since the consulate is not that big. What would happen if they lost the same percentage of the files/paperwork in CJ??? That would really be a mess. I think the consulate in Honduras is pretty incompetent.



    Sorry that it delays you getting back to your wonderful life TOGETHER. At least the pot of gold is at the end of the rainbow.
    We seek solace and comfort with family and caring friends. We will never give in. We will never give up.
    What we want is to live, united, as a family.

    Without family, the world is a cold, dark place.
