Filing AOS while I-130 is pendng

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi VJers!

I read other people`s posts on here and start thinking that I`m really unlucky one. My hubby filed I-130 on my behalf back in april and of cause it is not going to be touched for another 5 month for sure. We didn`t realize that we should file AOS together with it since I`m already here. The worst thing is we have never received a NOA1 for I-130. So we called in and been told that is was apparently lost in a mail or something and we cannot get a replacement one only receipt #. After reading this forums we got an idea that we can submit AOS while I-130 is pending so we called in again just to make sure and got a positeve answer from 2(!) reps. So we sent it and it got returned 2 weeks later because evidence of us filing I-130 wasnt there (what a lie!).

We resubmitted AOS packet 2 weeks ago with plenty of evidence that I-130 has been filed.... I smell another rejection notice... check hasen`t been cashed, no NOAs....

Has anyone been in a similar situation??? Is anything can be done here???

I've read that it took some ppl 1 month b4 their check was cashed...I guess how soon you receive the NOA1 depends on where you live and what service center has your file...Good luck hope you get something soon (check cashed or NOA1)
