I NEED YOUR HELP PLEASE

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a pending petition done by mother who's a LPR with priority date of Decemeber 10, 2008. The petition was done with the help of my brother who's a citizen because my mother is not literate enough to do that herself.

Unfortunately, my brother does not understand the system well, he seems to have forgotten the whole process ever since the petition got approved. i.e the difference between F1 and F2b category.

Now, I have decided to follow up on the case since I'm the beneficiary and I have the copy of the approved I-130 and I-797 Notice of Action.

My question/worries now are;

1. Should I call NVC to know the case status, because I called my brother and asked him if he called NVC when he got the approval notification in 2010 and he said he did what was asked to do then and had never done anything since then.

2. Since my brother is not much familiar with the process and his e-mail address was used during the application, can I e-mail NVC quoting my Names, petitioner's name (my mother) and my case number, and ask them to contact me subsequently using my own e-mail address for all correspondence.

3. When am I suppose to hear from NVC, considering the fact that the cut- off date for F2b is now July 08, 2008 and my priority date is December 10, 2008.

Lastly, I would appreciate if someone could tell me the step by step procedures to achieve this long awaited dream of traveling to America.

Hey Qlink,

Write to the NVC with the details (read how to contact NVC). Here's the link: http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/contact/ask-nvc.html

They will reply and also provide you with your Invoice ID which you should save, to be used by you and your petitioner when NVC processes your case. You will need Invoice ID and case number to fill out DS-261, DS-260 forms and to pay the Affidavit of support (AOS) and Immigrant Visa (IV) fees, when your PD becomes current.

Your email will also be registered with NVC, so they will send the emails to both you and your mother/brother (petitioner & beneficiary, you are also referred to as primary applicant)

Your case is most probably with NVC and they will do the needful just as your PD become current, which I think is a few months away. In my son's case, his PD is July 2008 and I heard from NVC end of Feb 2015. So you should check the visa bulletins to keep track when your PD is about to be current. Writing to the NVC around that time yet again helps as they reply promptly, if your PD is going to be current.

Qlink, you should be on this forum where you will be in the company of all F2B applicants:

Hi Chubbs,

Once again, I say a big thank you for your help. Please I will be counting on you for further directives as you process your son's case.

Thanks,
