Should I be concerned?

Just a quick question. I sent my I-130 application to the Chicago lock box for my application for my husband. I have received delivery confirmation and on Thursday the check cleared my bank account. I haven't received the NOA1 yet, which is fine...I'm sure it's coming. I located the receipt number on the back of the check and tried to enter it into the check status option on USCIS's website and it is saying the computer cannot locate my file. How long does it take to enter into the system usually? They wouldn't cash the check unless the application is moving on to the next step, right?

Thanks everyone!

Hey, I mailed my I-130 packet on 10-20-09, I got a confirmation that they recieved it on 10-22-09, the check cleared on 10-29-09 and I recieved my NOA1 on 10-30-09 .... this was only 8 days from the time I had confirmation that they recieved it.. I mailed it to the chicago lockbox for my area. I hope this gave you a little current timeline.

From what I recall from when I was in the USCIS stage, the numbers on the back of checks are off. Try adding a 1 to the last digit and see if that works.

Check your copy of the I-130, make sure you gave them a good mailing address. I got my NOA1 3 days after the post office said they received my case, and the envelope almost looked like junk mail, so make sure to really look for it and open everything even if it looks like junk mail. If you don't get the hard copy in another week, I'd call them and check on it just for peace of mind.

Good luck in your journey!

Try adding one to the last digit of the number on the back of your check. i.e. if your number is 56678 do 56679...


Our timeline:

2/88: We met in Sydney, Australia at a youth hostel! He's Finnish, I'm American-both were in our early 20s at the time and fresh out of college (so couldn't afford to visit each other's countries after that!). We had a three-day romance, then went our separate ways. He actually was going to Sydney a week later, but decided at the last minute to cut his trip short in another country and go early. Wow.

1988-1998: Wrote "snail mail" letters/sent Xmas cards, but lived our separate lives. I married someone else, divorced in 2006...he lived with someone for years and then that ended.

10/08: Because of a series of random life events, I Googled my Finn Man and found him (but no link to his email, and the website his name was on was in Estonian so I couldn't even read it!). It took me two weeks to find a link to someone else, who forwarded my email to him (we were both single at the time thankfully!!!!). The email went to his spam folder but he happened to check it that day and responded back to me immediately! This was after 10 years of no contact and almost 21 years of not seeing each other after we first met.

11/08-5/09: We traveled back and forth to visit each other. Love at first (second?) sight!

7/09: Married in Helsinki, Finland...after meeting randomly 21 1/2 years ago and finding each other again!!!!!

8/13/09: I-130 sent!!!!!!!!!

Rest is on my timeline!

Example, the back of the check says WEC-09-123-45678 try putting in WEC-09-123-45679.

Oh, and once the packages are received, they assign a number, then the check goes to one place and the actual file goes somewhere different, so you can't really go by when the check was cashed.

Thanks everyone. Adding 1 worked. Looks like they just mailed out the letter on the same day they deposited the check so I should get it here in the next couple of days.

The website said that if I filed an I-130 that I will need to go in for biometrics. I was not aware of this. It's not a problem I am just realizing that there is a lot more to this than I thought. I thought I understood all the steps but in the last week I've learned about 2 extra steps I wasn't initially aware of. Is there a good place to go to find a listing of all the steps so I know what's ahead?

Thanks again!

Hey redmen99...I just noticed that you and your spouse have the same wedding date as my husband and I. :)

Very cool! I hope you had as good a day as my hubby and I had.

I would suggest checking out the guides and the wiki pages on this site for all info related to immigration. I'm not sure why you would need to do biometrics, but you should find something in the guides to help you. Also check out the regional section on these boards. Someone there will be able to direct you better then I would.

Good luck!

Thanks, we did have a great day and I'm glad you did too! Thanks also for the suggestions. I'll check them out. The biometrics thing is a form reminder. It listed all the forms where fingerprints might need to be taken and the I-130 was on the list. I'll know for sure when I get the NOA1.
