Q: What are my options?

I’m living in Colorado and I applied for my wife’s green card, She is currently waiting for the embassy in South Wallace to open back up again and give her a date for an interview, but since the pandemic it’s been a real struggle and the wait times are much too long for me to wait. I was recently diagnosed with a medical condition Because of this condition I need her help so I applied for an expedite request for times including one time with the help of a senator but all four times my request was denied so my only option is to go to Mexico to live with her until they can give her an interview. If I go live to Mexico who is this affect her case and what would I have to do for me to be able to get her a green card

A: COVID has had a huge impact on visa processing in all parts of the world, and it seems unlikely that an expedite request would have helped for that reason. Relocating to Mexico should not impact the case, and if you’ve filed all of the necessary paperwork and are just waiting for a visa interview, the process doesn’t change.
