10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

our I-130 is approved last august 13, but we still mailed our I-129f.Now the CSC return our paper back all of it, because they cant process our I-129f anymore since I130 is approved,

So what we should do now? call NVC?,its been 2 weeks since the approval of I130 and we didnt hear anything from NVC.

Can anybody help us what to do next?

If USCIS gets I-129F after approval of I-130, they will just drop the I-129F in favor of the IMMIGRANT process, NVC will be processing the I-130 for an immigrant visa.

Im reading the shortcuts now. How long does the NVC send the first packet (DS303)?

As soon as the NVC has our case, can i email my DS-3032 right away?

loy,

You don't have to wait for mails from NVC. As soon as your case arrives at NVC, get the case # from a live rep/AVR.

When you hear DS-3032 and AOS fee bill are generated in the system(you find out from live rep or wait for update on AVR), you can proceed with email or mail the DS-3032 (refer to loto's guide and Jame's shortcut) and pay AOS fee online.

Please change profile status to IR1/CR1 visa since you going with that visa and you have now made that your timeline. It makes it easier for people to interpret for the sake of time frames.
