FIFTH JOINT STIPULATION AND ORDER RE: EXTENSION OF TIME

SHEILA K. OBERTO, Magistrate Judge.

On November 14, 2016, Plaintiffs filed the instant action, seeking to compel adjudication of Plaintiffs' immigrant visa petition and application. Service on the U.S. Attorney's Office was perfected on December 21, 2016. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services reviewed Plaintiffs' file and reaffirmed the visa petition. The National Visa Center transferred the file to the consular post at which Plaintiff Almuharrak previously made his application. At Plaintiff Almuharrak's request, his application was transferred to another consular post. On July 20, 2017, Plaintiff Almuharrak was re-interviewed regarding his visa application. A further adjudication decision is forthcoming. Presently, Defendants' response is due August 4, 2017. Four previous extensions have been obtained, totaling 164 days. See ECF Nos. 18, 21, 23, 26. The parties hereby stipulate to a 60-day extension to answer or otherwise respond to the complaint, until October 3, 2017.

ORDER

Based on the parties' above stipulation (Doc. 27), and for good cause shown, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Defendants are granted a 60-day extension of time for filing a response to the Complaint (Doc. 1).

Defendants shall file a response to the Complaint on or before October 3, 2017.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
