A: You may have to wait a bit longer, unless you unknowingly registered at the time that you consular processed your visa. If you filed for adjustment of status, then you were obligated to take action. I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney, like myself, before there are any further complications and/or losses.

The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
