I130 approved

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I checked yesterday and saw that I was touched on my I130 for the first time. I was happy that I was touched, but i was not too optimistic as i have seen many people being touched many times without an approval. In addition, my local California senators office called and left a message saying they have some information aboutmy case. Therefore I assumed that the touch was because of the inquiry.

Lo and behold, this morning i checked my email and i have 5 emails from USCIS saying my I130 was approved yesterday.

I want to thank everyone for their support and encouragement. I know the journey is not over yet, but this is one big hurdle that has been passed. Hopefully everyones get approved quickly as well

Thast great news! congratulations on your approval!!! Who did you contact to do the inquery for you? I thik I might do the same. How do I go about doing that?

I contacted my local precinct california senator (not US senator). Just find out who it is in your area and call them to see if they can make an inquiry. Usually they are very nice and willing to do it for you
