arrowCheck NVS case status online

I have submitted AOS package for my Mom about 2 weeks ago. When I try to check the case status online I still see this, like it was before submitting the AOS package:


U.S. Department of State
Immigrant Visa Case Number: *************            


Please follow the instructions you received from the National Visa Center (NVC) for the next step in the processing of your visa petition. If you have misplaced the instructions sent to you by the NVC or did not receive them, please contact us athttp://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3177.html for additional information.

That means, they did not adjudicate our package yet, and I simply have to wait? Or I am checking the wrong place?

arrowMissed call from 603-334-9400 - US Dept of State

I have an IR-5 case (sponsoring a parent of USC) at NVC awaiting interview scheduling. Case was completed couple weeks ago.


Yesterday in the afternoon I missed a call from 603-334-9400. Has anyone experienced this?


When I call the number back it says this is a non-working number of US department of state. I called NVC (which has a very similar number) and they said they have nothing new for me, and don't know who called me or why.


I checked CEAC site today after 2 weeks of not checking, and I finally got 3 N/As. I am the petitioner and the agent on the case.

arrowTo those whose I-130 cases were expedited....

Questions  :)

1. Were you informed by USCIS that your case was expedited?

2. How soon after NOA-1 the approval arrived?


If the official pending period is 6 months, I wonder, how long  the expedited processing can take.

arrowGot married right after temporary absence from USA on a F-1 visa

Hi, please help me with my situation. 

I received F-1 visa in November 2013 and entered US in December 2013 with no immigration intentions, started attending college here, where I met my husband and fell in love with him. I got pregnant in September of 2014. I've been wanting to marry him for a long time, but his family wasn't approving of our relationship. He kept it a secret from them for a long time and when he told them (October 2014) they were really upset and didn't speak to him for a few weeks. In December I visited and got to know his family for a week  (they live in another city) and then traveled to my home country for 2 weeks for Christmas break. That visit has been planned for a long time and tickets have been bought in advance. 

While I was visiting my family, my husband and his mom went and bought me an engagement ring and my husband proposed to me on the day I got back. Without thinking too much about it we got married within two weeks. We had a small civil ceremony with my friend and his sisters present. We're planning a bigger ceremony/reception for August.

In February, I got a pregnancy complication that made me unable to continue attending school. I have a doctor's note documenting that and DSO has approved me temporarily dropping school without going out of status. 


Later, some miscommunication happened between my school and me. I talk to a person who said it was okay for me to continue school from fall semester, however today I was contacted by the DSO that due to my failure to register for summer semester, I am now considered out of status and have to leave the US immediately. (apparently, the person I talked to before that wasn't aware of my international status and didn't relay the information to DSO). I wanna apply for the adjustment of status now, but read that due to me getting married so soon after entering the country I could be considered to have committed visa fraud. What should I do in this situation and how can I convince USCIS that the marriage was a spontaneous decision after I came back? 

We have Facebook and Instagram posts of our engagement announcement and receipt from when the ring was purchased.

Does anybody have information on how long NVC takes to review the DS-260 now? All NVC fees paid, AOS, IV  packages reviewed... just waiting for DS-260 review and CC.
