Regarding e-mail updates from USCIS

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have a rather redundant, and somewhat obvious, question to ask but I am still uncertain. I have registered on the USCIS website in order to receive e-mail updates (Case Status and Processing Dates). I do check it from time to time but I have noticed that there has been no activity whatsoever - even with my I-130. I have already received the NOA1 for both I-130 and I-129F, and the only dates available on my account (where it mentions "Last Updated") are the dates that I, myself, entered the NOA receipt numbers (meaning when I had actually received the NOAs' in the mail). As most of you are aware, USCIS has not updated any info since April, 21 - also I am assuming that when a case gets "touched", that the "Last Updated" section of the portfolio is the one that changes (to a newer date) to indicate that the case has in fact been looked at and therefore "touched".

So my question is am I doing something wrong, or looking in the wrong place for my case to be "touched"? Or is it just that I will just have to wait around until they eventually get to my case due to the backlog from previous applications? I am sure this question has been asked several times before, and I do apologize in advance but I would really appreciate replies to this. Also, I know that the I-130s are being processed in California, eventhough I filed at the TSC. So does this mean that the rest of my K3 will be handled by TSC (that is except the portion that is to be processed by the NBC and later the NVS) or has the CSC now become my default service center? Good luck to you all and thanks.

Patience is the name of the game here ;) hard I know. We finally received our NOA2 with no status change on the site, no email just the letter. It does take a long time in some case, check out my time line

Good luck

Hello everyone,

Based on what I said earlier, is my service center going to be Texas or California? I filed my I-130 (for a K3 visa) w/ TSC, but it was forwarded to the CSC (b/c I received the NOA1 from CSC). I know that TSC is not processing I-130s, what I would like to know if i should watch my case status at either TSC or CSC? In other words, will the remaining portion of the process be handled by TSC? Please help, as I am still relatively new at all this. Thanks and good luck to all.

I'm in the same boat as you. I sent my I-130 to TX but it was forwarded to CA. So, when you look at the online processing times you will need to look at CA for your I-130. You'll need to watch the Missouri National Benefits Center (NBC) for the processing times on your I-129f (K3) application. :yes:

14-Dec-05: Sent I-130 to London for DCF

28-Dec-05: Letter from Embassy denying due to LLR

17-Jan-06: RFE from TX due to "lack of payment"; USCIS won't accept credit card form from Embassy

01-Feb-06: Sent new I-130 to TX with personal check

13-Feb-06: NOA1

02-June-06: NOA2

05-June-06: Case received at NVC; case # assigned

26-June-06: DS-3032 Choice of Agent rec'd via snail mail

06-July-06: DS-3032 COA mailed; AOS bill mailed

24-July-06: IV bill generated

31-July-06: I-864 rec'd via snail mail; IV bill rec'd

31-Aug-06: IV bill mailed (delayed due to move to US)

21-Sep-06: DS-230 rec'd via snail mail

The portfolio will update when something major happens, like you are approved. The portfolio detials state sthat even though the date might show to indicate administrative processing, it does not necessarily mean that the status of your case will change. Believe me, the fact that you can see both cases is a blessing. The change in status will come when you least expect it. Good Luck :)
