Date received question

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am sorry guys if I ma bothering you with this kind of question, but I couldn't find an answer

How do they count 6 months? (actually nobody says anymore 6 months , now they are saying 9-10 months but still I want to know)

Do they count the date they received in mail room(the promised the will honor that day)

or from the date of NOA1?

I sent my I-130 to NSC

they received it on 8-19

CSC says they received it on 10-2 which is also the date of NOA1 (I-797 show date of receiving is 10-2)

Now how do I count those 6 months

Are they stealing from me 45 days

45 days with this delay could end up i 2 months more waiting

and what do you think about CSC processing times posted on the USCIS web site

It says the ate finishing 7-25 petitions

Does it mean NOA1 date or received date?

The starting date for any case processing times is always the date on NOA1. As in your case, it can take some time for the intitial processing to be completed before they send out the NOA. Using the date that you see the package was delivered will just lead to frustration when trying to get status reviews of your case. The USCIS will ALWAYS use the date on the NOA so you should start counting from there also.

Hope that has cleared things up for you.

USCIS do state on their site that they will honour the date the petition was received in the mailroom (due to the huge backlogs). Mark may not have kept up to date on this new procedure.

However, we do not know exactly what "honor" means to USCIS so we will have to see how it pans out as you reach the 6+ month mark. They seem to disregard all other "set" procedures on a whim, so this may end up to be another one.

I have the same question about the dates on the I-797C.

For the I-130 petition, the received date shows Aug. 2, 2007 with a Notice date of Aug. 23, 2007.

For the I-129F petition, the recieve date shows Sept. 11, 2007 with a notice date of Sept. 14, 2007.

From which date should I start the 6 months processing clock? I asked my attorney and she didn't answer me. BTW, she is a waste of my money.

She told me that the CSC is still within their processing time frame. How can that be true for the I-130?

Everytime I call the CSC, I get a different answer about the dates. They even have a different date (1 day different than on my receipts) in the system they access.

I'm trying to find out when I should ask for a service request.

I know the USCIC has no logical processing plan. I see posts here of people who have receipt dates after mine and now their spouses or fiances have interview dates and I don't have any approvals yet.

I'm getting worried, nervous, anxious and upset.

My approved I-130 had a section called "priority date" and it had my received date on it. Hence my best guess would be that the counting of days starts from the received date, which is the priority date. My 2 cents...

To make the answer meaningful, one must consider why it matters. The adjudication will be complete when it is complete. "Honoring" a date, just puts the petition in the correct position in queue. The six months has little if anything to do with how long the petition will take to be adjudicated. It just marks the date that needs to pass before an official inquiry can begin. In that context, the NOA1 or Priority Date (same date for fiance or spouse) is the date to start counting.
