              Congrats! Hoping we all get some calls this week. I also hope Hawaii is a big enough port that they have some vacancies.

                I was given the IA number/email from a member on this board. The man I contacted forwarded my request to my adjudicator.

                • ahhh that's what i thought. seems to be helping people out. from what i've seen, when you contact your adjudicator, they make you a priority. My BI cleared i think within 1-2 weeks of me contacting my adjudicator and sending him what he was missing.

                  • The day my life changed 12:16, I just got the call. I'm going to look at the ports tomorrow to see which one I want, Calexico, CA or Andrade, CA.

                    • I’ll say this about phoning IA, your adjudicator, or anybody else.

                      Every minute they’re spending answering phone calls is a minute they’re not spending processing people’s paperwork, working cases, or otherwise moving people forward. If things aren’t moving fast enough for you, maybe it’s because your adjudicator is spending a fair portion of his time answering unwanted phone calls.

                      As far as calling and making yourself a priority…maybe…until the next guy calls and pushes you further down the pile. Then the next call come in, and moves you down even further, and so on. Making some guy shuffle your file might make you feel better, but it'll only likely slow down the process for you and everyone else waiting.

When I called IA and spoke to my adjudicator for the first time on 3/11, she told me that she was about to start the write up within the next day or so and would give me a courtesy call the following week. That wasn't a coincidence, as my file was probably sitting on her desk for literally 4 months (My file was submitted to IA for review on 10/10/08). Its been 7 business days, and I haven't received any word yet... so I emailed her and thanked her for being helpful on the phone and asked if she had an update for me.

                            Just a thought to everyone in the same situation.... As long as you are polite, I strongly recommend calling/emailing within reason to keep up on your case. Nobody is going to help you more than you.
                            Thanks for the Information I was wondering what the number/email is for IA. I have not heard nothing which is not a bad thing, but it has been about the same amount of time for me as for you with the BI. I guess I may be getting slightly impatient.

                              I understand what you are saying, but I know someone with the same philosophy and they waited 1 year and a half and finally called they had no clue were his file was. It took them a month to find it, it literally fell behind somones desk. It took them a month to review it and he is now at flect. Now had he not called they would not have even bothered looking for his file. I would say that it would not be a good idea to call, and call , and call but what is once going to hurt. If I were to call I would wait another month or two, just because of how long it has been since I met with my BI.
