Lets collect some information about IMBRA effects

1,434 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok, as they say "knowledge is power". Lets get a list together here of everyone that got NOA2's that have NOA1 dates of March 6 and later. Include the type of visa (k1 or k3), the country for the fiance and the service center. Also, anyone that had an approved petition returned to the service center please list that and the center you used.

I will try to put it in some sort of form so we can get a better idea of what is going on. We will also be able to track the progress of the centers as they try to deal with this. I know that some of this can be gotten from the timelines but the returns and the dates they are sent back are not there.

At least we will be able to get an idea of what is going on this way and it will also be good therapy for me as I sweat out our NOA2. :blush:

I'm confused about even if we know the official date(s).

NOA1 has a receipt date 3/1 and notice date 3/7.

NOA2 has a receipt date 3/7 and notice date 3.8.

I had one reply to my question that the real date and time is what's stamped on the Petition.

How do we know that?

I know that some of this can be gotten from the timelines but the returns and the dates they are sent back are not there.

I wanted to get the whole picture. The returns are something that are really disturbing to a lot of people.

Our application's status said updated 3/03/06, until it was touched AND approved on May 8. I don't know if they approved the application in one day, or it they just didn't update the status.

Look everyone welcome to the USA Birzaro world of immigration. IN the magical land of Bizaro USA, those who play by the rules and file properly and obey the rules are penalized and mistreated. But if you break the law and do things illegally you are rewarded (refering to certain group of 11 million people who just protested for their "rights" and will be given citizenship because it is the "humane" thing to do)

Just remember we are americans ( and americans to be) and our governement will use and abuse us, because thats what americans let our government do. God bless america.

I'm confused about even if we know the official date(s).

NOA1 has a receipt date 3/1 and notice date 3/7.

NOA2 has a receipt date 3/7 and notice date 3.8.

I had one reply to my question that the real date and time is what's stamped on the Petition.

How do we know that?

Because it is USCIS policy and procedure.

My reply to you on this from another thread.....I have copied it to save rewriting

The receipt date on the NOA is the day the service center physically received your petition which is the date-time stamp on the petition. The NOA Notice Date is the date it was entered into the system and a NOA generated. Anything to do with your process including guaging whether your case is overdue is taken from the receipt date (the date it was phsically received at the service center)..not the NOA notice date. The NOA2 has nothing to do with whether you will or may be affected by the IMBRA. Any petition received after March 6 (the date stamped on your petition which is the receipt date on your NOA1) are the ones affected by the IMBRA. As your receipt date is 3/1 then you filed before the Act came into effect and should not come under the IMBRA.

From a post by desert_fox in response to the question. If you read the text it refers to what I state above.

This is off the USCIS site...maybe its what you are looking for.

-------------------------------------------

: Due to an unusually large volume of receipts at the Service Centers during the first week of April, it is taking longer than expected to enter cases into the system. Depending on the type of case and service requested, it may take approximately 14 days to generate and mail receipt notices. Once the receipt notice has been generated, it may take an additional 2 to 3 days for customers to receive their receipt notices in the mail. Per existing policies and procedures, requests for Premium Processing Service will continue to be processed within 15 days. USCIS wishes to assure all customers that the original received date will be honored and recorded on the receipt notice. This date will appear in the "Received Date" box on Form I-797, Notice of Action. The received date is different from the "Notice Date", which also appears on Form I-797. The Notice Date is the date the receipt notice was actually generated. USCIS has taken appropriate measures to address this situation and expects to be current with its receipting by mid-May.

Hope this helps

I think it's just a matter of numbers -- 11 million people can demand virtually whatever they want, even if they're here illegally. That's 11 million people who probably have family members and friends and supporters and sympathizers who are USCs who will vote and influence elections. I don't know how many people apply for the K-1 every year, but it's probably a much smaller group than 11 million people -- and so, we matter less to most politicians. This is complete #######. Also, they probably figure that if we're going through all this trouble in the first place, we'll take whatever new laws and restrictions they throw out and continue to wait and follow everything to the letter.

It's funny because this new law probably is really a "good thing" because it aims to protect foreign women from abuse and I bet most people would be in support of it, but the way they're going about enforcing it is SO ridiculous and heartbreaking and it does seem like they're punishing people.

Thank you SSOOO MUCH, Lorelle!

Yes, it does help if I understand correctly.

The NOA1 Receipt Date is the one that matters, not the NOA1 Notice or the NOA2 Receipt Date.

That's cool! I just hope that all is ok.

Thanks for starting this post. My NOA1 was March 24 :(

Any approvals of people with NOA1's after March 6th?

Any word on how this will affect those of us with NOA1s after March 6th? All I can find is "if you are before March 6, don't worry. If you're after March 6, you're screwed." Probably true but not very specific.

I sent my 129f on March 10 to VSC, received NOA2 on March 24. NVC has already completed processing and my financee already received her packet from the Moscow Embassy. Her interview is set for June 13.

I was after the March 6 date completely, and it moved fast for me.

My only concern is that USCIS will re-assess their approvals made after March 6 in order to conduct the criminal investigation and such. I have not heard any word about people getting their approvals "revoked" yet, but would be interested to know if anyone else has heard such a thing.

I highly doubt that the USG has the energy to revoke the approvals made after that time...they are probably still trying to figure out what to do with the ones coming in.
