Dear Editor:

I want to congratulate you on the quality of news and information on your site, making it the primary resource for immigration issues. I would like to elicit the response of your members on my situation which is of general interest to many H-1B applicants.

I filed my H-1B petition to the Texas Service Center, receipt date 12/11/2000, without an ETA-9035. The LCA was however received on the 12/15/2000 (just three days later). I received a RFE from the INS to send the LCA on 3/21/2001. I sent the LCA to the INS the next day on the 4/22/2001. The TSC automated voice message system acknowledges receipt of my LCA on 4/16/2001 ( nearly 3 weeks later).

In terms of processing times the automated voice system is showing an inconsistency. It claims that processing times for fresh application are 60-90 days, while for my application - which has already undergone preliminary processing - it is 90 days. This is logically inconsistent. A application which has undergone processing should have a lesser wait time than a fresh application not more. Is this just a mistake in the recording?

Also, are members aware of a method we can contact the TSC, not through the regular number which is just impossible. The RFE mentions officer 100, as the officer responsible for the case, is there a way to get a message to him directly or his supervisor to expedite the case which has already taken 120 calendar days. I am willing to hire a top quality attorney, consultant to expedite the case.
