Movement. The act or process of moving people or things from one place or position to another.
Never could one simple action (or word) be so promising or give someone so much hope after such a long and exhaustive battle. Suffice to say there has been movement on my husband’s case.
Limbo. A place or state of restraint or confinement.
I honestly don’t think I need to continue on here, I am sure most of you have read my other posts.
So, last week my husband and I both received an email that they needed him to go in and update his fingerprints. Apparently, although for most purposes fingerprints do not have an expiration, this is not the case with USCIS. Fingerprints for USCIS expire after 15 months. This actually does not bother me one bit, it gave me the opportunity to know that they are actively working on his case. The email stated that they needed updated fingerprints so that they could continue to process the case. Our receipt date is September 6, 2013 and there have been several September approvals both before and after my receipt date. He updated his fingerprints today and now we wait. I unfortunately don’t know how long it takes for our adjudicator to be notified of the update, but it really could be any day now.
Movement feels good, much better than limbo. Now, I am trying not to get anxious, because there is sooo much to do once we get (hopefully) an approval to return home as a family, intact. My lawyer did concur that if they want something updated that we are most likely close to a decision. I can’t wait to see what the other side of this “mountain” pertains.
