NVC is a ring of hell

4 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

DS-261 was submitted on August 19, and I hold a confirmation in my hand that states it has been submitted and there's a confirmation number.

I am instructed to wait 3-5 business days to log into pay bills. Today is Business Day 7: Still no invoices.

Today's "helpful" operator tells me that we should have waited for instruction to submit the DS-261, because we were never told to submit DS-261, so they have no record of our DS-261 as they have not asked for it yet, despite it being available to submit from the website.

That's why there's been no invoice, because they have not received the DS-261, and they can't until they ask for it, which of course takes, sing along with me, 10-20 business days.

I was getting frustrated. Why would the website tell us to submit and allow us to submit and provide "confirmation" it has been submitted? This operator is telling me we're going to have to submit it again when we're told.

He told me WE have slowed down this process by submitting the form before we were told. I wanted to reach through the phone and strangle him.

You know, I've never asked my government for anything until now? I happily pay all of my taxes, I have a clean criminal record, I've never applied for welfare or tried to cheat any systems. I've defended it, I've participated in it, and I've been a good citizen. But now, I ask for this one thing, to import my Canadian husband, and I'm treated like a lowlife who must be scrutinized and examined.

Thanks, USA! Thanks for subjecting good, normal folks to this insane process as we watch our lives go by 10-20 business days at a time!

Unfortunately NVC process is what it is and we can do nothing about it except to vent out our frustations. Hope you feel light now and get along with your process - the goal - get your spouse here.
