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.
