Haven't seen a topic made yet for this month, so figured I would do it for the new filers.
If you sent off your I-130 packet and got a March 2013 NOA1 priority date, post your experiences/information here and get to know your fellow filers!

This is just for IR-1/CR-1 filers, so they won't need to do the Adjustment of Status process. Thanks, though. Posted Image

If you live together abroad with your husband, that's where it almost always goes, and it's usually faster.

Good luck!

All I-130s filed after August 2012 get sent to NBC. Unless both the beneficiary and the USC are living abroad (in which case it would stay at NBC for processing), your case should get sent to your local field office after a month or two. Posted Image So you're good for now!
