QUESTION: I called the US Embassy in bucharest and the lady there said that my husband should file in the US... I also went on the website and there it sais that petitions are accepted at the Consulate for us citizens residing in Romania, including members of armed forces as well as true emergency cases. Now, my husband is not residing in Romania, he is in the U.S. Just because he is in the U.S. he does not meet the criteria? we are so confused about this entire thing...
If he is in the U.S. now - he must file here. But, once it is filed, he probably could get a Congressman to write a letter to get it adjudicated in an expedited fashion, since he is in the Military. H could also file for a k3 visa for you to try and get you here quicker and then you would apply for the actual green card after you get here.
