question regarding processing time

Recommended Posts

Hello guys, so it's been couple weeks since we mailed out my paperwork, I filed my petition with G-1145 e notification, I didn't receive anything thus far...

 

here's my story... I came to the U.S. on an F-1 VISA, worked with my OPT (EAD card). Met my wife about a year ago, we got married last year before Christmas (2016). We mailed in our paperwork to the Chicago office on 12/30/16 via FedEx, they received it on 1/4/17. They say it takes about 10 days to receive notification from them, knowing that I filed G-1145... is that a little odd? In addition, I also filed to expedite due to emergency situation/financial loss. Should I call them and see what's going on? Any pro tip?

 

Thanks in advance...

It takes about 2-3 weeks. Just wait for it. They received mine on the 27th and I only got the e-Notifications on the 12th. There are people who got their packets received before the 27th and still got no notifications yet. Be patient :)

NoA is the physical letter you'll receive in the mail. The official one. The e-Notifications is just to tell you they've received your case.

NOA stands for Notice Of Action (notification). You will get your NOA1 when they get your I130 packet. You will get an NOA2 when they approve your I130. 

 

G1145 is just the NAME of the FORM that you filled out to let them know you wish to get email notifications too, and not just through the mail. Its just like G25 is the name of the form you filled out on your personal information. 

 

If your expedite gets approved (i dont know what your emergency situation is, but a financial loss is not a "good enough" reason for an expidite to them) that will make your process go faster/ you will get approved faster. It doesnt mean that they will get it faster though. So by the date you have gave us; you should be getting an NOA1 anyday now!
