What could have caused a delay in the processing of an EB-5-based green card?

I arrived in the U.S. on an EB-5 immigrant visa in July 2019. I received my green card in about 6 weeks. My wife and two kids arrived together on their EB-5 visas in December 2019. My two kids received green cards in 5 weeks. However, it has been 10 weeks and the case status for my wife is still “in process”. What could be the potential reason for the delay of her green card? What should we do?

Technically, each case is processed separately. I have seen this before. Calling the USCIS contact center and follow up frequently until all cards arrive.

Ten weeks is beyond normal but not that much beyond. You can call the I-800-number to see if there is an issue.

I recommend you do an infopass appointment to check on the status.

You should call the USCIS Contact Center at 1-800-375-5283. They can open a service request to find out what happened to your wife''s green card and request it to be redirected to you by mail.
