NOA2 received 5 weeks ago but petition hasn't been sent to NVC

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Our petition has been approved and we received the NOA2 5 weeks ago. For some unknown reason, our petiton hasn't been sent to NVC....it's still at USCIS.

We've tried calling USCIS for some answers but the person on the other end of the phone couldn't tell us any other information.

I just don't understand why this is happening....it's been approved so why haven't they sent it to NVC?

Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone have any advice on how we can find out what the hold up is?

This happened to my petition during 2008. My first NOA2 was approved June 6, 2008, but my petition was not sent to NVC in a timely manner even though I had a so-called expert immigration attorney who did nothing to help me during this time. In fact, my attorney's office staffer and different USCIS reps told me repeatedly that the USCIS had 60 days to get the petition to NVC. During this time, I continued to call USCIS, time and time again. Finally, I got a descent and knowledgeable rep on the phone; he agreed to do a computer generated search within USCIS to locate my petition. Within a week my petition was located and assigned a new validity date--then, I received a second NOA2 from USCIS, with a new validity date assigned, about mid-August 2008. Everything went smoothly then, right on through the interview and subsequent K-1 visa approval.

I suggest that you continue to call USCIS and hope to get a rep on the phone who is knowledgeable and empathetic to your concerns. They do have the ability to find your petition within USCIS. In fact, the rep I spoke with told me that it was not uncommon for a file to be 'lost or misplaced' within USCIS. Also, it may be necessary to ask your congress person for assistance. In my case, about the same time that I spoke with the rep who promised to help me, I had contacted my congressman's office to ask for help, and had already put my complaint in writing for the congressman's office when I received my second NOA2, so the problem was solved before my congressman's office acted upon my request.

Bottom line is that persistence will pay off for you. It is frustrating and stressful, but just continue to be proactive and try not to worry. I feel sure that everything will be fine. I wish you good luck!

Argh....this is very vexing!! We only just found out on the USCIS website that there is a special helpline for military members. We're going to call on Monday to hopefully get some answers. Then if no luck, we shall take your advice and visit the field office and also contact our congressman. Thanks for your advice guys! :)

This is so frustrating!!! After many more phone call to USCIS, NVC and also going to the USCIS field office, we still have no answer as to where our documents are. USCIS said they would put a tracer on our file and this has eventuated to nothing. Now they have told us to call back after 60 days if we still haven't heard anything. If we wait 60 more days, our petition will expire the week after.....then what??? How can it take more than 7 weeks for NVC to receive the file?
