NVC screwd our case up

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I am new here and I am from Germany and married to my husband Brian from New York for 3 years. We have a great relationship and wanted to live together, so when he changed jobs and made enough money, we could finally file for the IR Visas. I also have a little son from a previous marriage, but my Ex and I are still very good friends and he supports me in my decision to live with my husband in the US.

We filed the I-130 and without any problems it was approved and it went rather fast. They were really friendly at the USCIS and did everything smoothly and fast. But then, the National Visa Center took over and they royally screwed up our case. My paper work got processed very fast, but my son`s they really ruined. I don´t know if they can`t read or what, but they listed my son as my husbands brother, although it was stated clearly in the paperwork that he is my son. And they wrote a letter that there are no visas available for siblings of US-Citizens right now.

We called them and told them that he needs to be filed as my son, like it is written in the paperwork the USCIS sent to them. They checked on it and apoligized and admitted it was their fault and they did a mistake. Well, it is almost a year ago and until now they haven`t corrected that mistake although we called several times and asked for it to be corrected as we can not move on otherwhise. They said it can take years to correct a mistake like that. I thought they were kidding me. I have never heard anything like that before. They made a mistake and now we have to wait years to process with everything. I am about to giving up and do not wanna immigarte anymore. This is so ridiculous.....

Has anybody else had problems with the NVC? Or that their case got screwd up...I am really, really discouraged.

Welcome to the black hole of the US immigration process, also known as NVC. :angry:

Sorry to hear about your problems with NVC. It's crazy that their mistake is causing such long delays for you. :( Have you tried contacting your senator? I have read many others here on VJ who were helped by their senator.

If it helps, know that you're not alone. Many of us have had issues with NVC or are dealing with delays because of them. In our case, they "forgot" to review my DS-260 (the visa application) and two months after I submitted it, we got a checklist saying I never submitted it. Before we sent in our AOS form, we also spoke to two different agents about what to write on question 13, since my husband is not required to file taxes, and wrote exactly how both of them told us to do it.... And got a checklist for it. When calling in to ask a third NVC agent what they actually need since my husband wasn't required to file taxes, we were told again that we had filled it correctly and she didn't understand why we got a checklist for it. These two wrong checklists are now at supervisor review, delaying our visa application with at least 52 days... Just praying it won't be longer. I can't even begin to imagine how difficult this is for you. :( I would call your senator and even considering going to the media with your case. I'm sure that would be something interesting to write about, especially since immigration reform is high on the agenda right now.

~~moved to NVC from IR1/CR1 process and procedures. Case is about NVC and is not spousal.~~

Your husband needs ro be contacting his congressman and/or senator about this yesterday. This should not take years to fix. It should already have been done. He also needs to speak to a supervisor (do not wait on a call back, keep calling until you can speak to one. This will take effort.)
