    As you mention 2 different EAC nos under A (19), I don't know much about 2 different EAC nos but I guess one for you and second for your derivative (in the name of your spouse), If so you definitely need to file again a fresh I-765 C (14) along with form I -765WS and you have a choice for request fee waiver (Form I -912) or by simple letter request to USCIS and explain your current circumstances & financial position & you might get approve for fee Waiver ($ 410).

    I observe that NSC is little bit quick then VSC for DA letter & as I mention before my son's file stuck with VSC so Please note you are note alone waiting for good news since October'14 my son and his derivatives is there with you since July'14, Remember "A will will find a way", have some patience you are very close to get good news.

    Thank you
    Wish you all the best

    Ajay
    Thanks Ajay for your nice words of encouragement .
    No, both the I-765 forms are with Separate EAC nos. And I-918 with a different No. On my name . My derative has different nos.on both I-765s and I- 928

          USCIS Grants All Available U Visas for Fiscal Year 2017
          USCIS has approved the congressionally mandated annual limit of 10,000 petitions for U nonimmigrant status for victims of certain crimes committed in the United States who assist law enforcement authorities. Although USCIS cannot grant any more U visas in fiscal year (FY) 2017, we will continue to review pending petitions for eligibility for potential visa issuance when more visas become available in FY 2018 beginning on Oct. 1, 2017.

          Petitioners and qualifying family members must continue to meet eligibility requirements at the time a U visa becomes available.

          Congress created the U visa program to strengthen law enforcement’s ability to investigate and prosecute cases of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and other serious crimes. Each year, 10,000 U visas are available for victims of certain qualifying crimes who have suffered substantial mental or physical abuse and are willing to help law enforcement authorities investigate or prosecute those crimes.

          A U visa petition requires certification by a law enforcement agency that the victim has been helpful in the investigation or prosecution of the qualifying crime.

                • Hi Jin, I have a question. Did you receive the Defferred Action? O you just submitted your EAD without the DA?

                  • Did anyone receive this notice before from the USCIS? What did you sent and does this request have a meaning? I am so nervous about it.
                    They received my application on 6/3/2014 and this is the first notice/letter that I got from them since the fingerprint notice back in July 2014.

                    • Well, apparently you did not file form I-192 when filled for U visa. This form is a”forgiveness request for any crimes you have committed. For example, if you overstayed your Visa or entered the US illegally you will need to file this form. That is what they want from you. Its simple but must be completed correctly. Do you have an attorney? After you send this in, you will likely get approved.

                        The Immigration and Nationality Act restricts the quantity of U visas that can be given to U head solicitors each monetary year to 10,000. When that cap is reached, solicitors are put on standby until new visas become accessible. For the beyond quite a long while, the quantity of U head candidates every year has surpassed the accessible number of visas. This has come about in a consistently developing "U visa holding up list." At a new Vermont Service Center (VSC) partners meeting, the VSC detailed that there are presently 24,000 individuals on the holding up list with conceded activity. This number incorporates the two administrators and subordinates. There are 140,000 petitions forthcoming for individuals ready to be put on the holding up list and get conceded activity.

                        During the beyond couple of years, the VSC has supported 10,000 new U visas in the initial three months of the monetary year. The VSC as of late announced that in financial year 2017, it will deal with the 2017 visas in an unexpected way. Rather than a fast carry out, the VSC will stun the endorsements of U visas over the initial 3/4 of the year. This was an essential choice put forth trying to reduce the significant delays to get conceded activity, work approval and to be put on the U visa holding up list. There is presently a holding up time of north of two years to try and be put on the U visa holding up list.
