Has USCIS stopped processing I-130 for CR1,IR1?

Hi,

I submitted my petition on March 17, and I am still waiting for my NO2. I am concerned because it seems that USCIS has not processed/approved any petitions in the last 4-5 weeks, with exception of some expedites, in fact the petition before mine was approved on May 28th and they haven't approved any other petitions after that. I called customer service, but I got the scripted answer posted on the web. How can we find out when USCIS will start processing I-130 petitions again? Is there a phone number, besides the customer service number, where one can get in informative and accurate answer?

I know, the middle to end of March are all still waiting, who knows what they are doing, its so sad and heartaching.

No matter who you call or email, they will tell you your within the 5 month processing times.

Try to stay strong Hon, your not in this alone.

Truly happy!!!

No. There's no one at USCIS who will give you any useful information at all. You're still within processing times so there's nothing to worry about. Also keep in mind that members on VisaJourney are just a tiny fraction of the overall applicants. Just because no one you've seen here has been approved doesn't mean that the thousands of other applications aren't being approved.

Hey jennandfranz...

Not just expedites -- we were approved and we're just a normal pair of people with no access to the expedite. All I can say is that there is no rhyme or reason as to how they process at all. Don't be discouraged by what the operator tells you -- we called a week before approval and they told us that we'd have to wait the full 6 months before anything could happen or we had any right to complain. That's all they told us. We also had no touches or anything on our account.

Don't be discouraged and don't let the USCIS get you down, it's their job to be hard-nosed about stuff.

Good luck and may your processing go well.

Best,

LGG

Yep, keep the faith.

I know a VJ couple from April Filers that got approved.

There's absolutely no pattern at all with USCIS...

keep calling, keep asking if it is already assigned to an officer

its very frustrating when you see 8 K1 approvals for a single day and none for I130's

we're barely halfway through july and the last 15 K1 approvals on igor's list is almost completely filled with july approvals and the I130 approvals list has two and they were expedites

very very discouraging

but this too shall pass

not really... but there was a couple of CR1 filers who was already approved and they

didn't know until they called. it was, i think, a week later before they found out through calling.

When we call USCIS, most of time the rep. (no matter at which level) will pull up your computer record and tell you the status from there, not your phisical file folder. So I believe that calling the USCIS should not have impacted your chance of being processed.

USCIS is so unfair to the CR1/IR1 filer these days, the processing time is more than their goal of 5 month now. K1 is said 5 month.

I don't know what else to do other wait :crying::crying::crying: so frustrating :angry::angry::angry: !!!

I spoke to an officer and then another higher level rep that when you call it is just an inquiry and your case doesn't get pulled from queue. It is just looked into from the computer. They also told me that calling doesn't affect the case status.

Gundas,

You brought me peace of mind. I was afraid that I committed a mistake because I called to inquire last week, and thought that I put my self behind in the queue. I sure hope that you are right. I faced up to many challenges in my life, but this journey is the most demanding from an emotional point of view. Being apart from your love ones is so hard, and knowing that there is nothing that one can do to fix that, is even more depressing. I wish the best outcome for all of us
