My wife and I were married in October of 2002. She and our daughter are citizens of the Russian Federation. She and our daughter moved to the US under K-3 and K-4 visas respectively in December of 2003. In January of 2004 she and our daughter applied for Employment Authorization and Adjustment of Status. It will soon be two years since application for permanent residency and the official status of my wife's FBI name check is "pending". The last email I sent to the FBI requesting an update on the status of the name check has yet to receive a response, it was sent in July of 2005. A prior request for status required over four months for a response. The response? "Pending". This is a system that is badly broken. Each year we are required to re-apply (and, of course, pay) for employment authorization, our daughter was denied the privilege of applying to some colleges because of her (lack of) status. And, of course, there is no end in sight. Can someone please tell me what is going on inside this black box and just how long we are likely to have to wait for a name check to be processed? This seems to be absurdly overdue.
