April 2010 CR1 Filers

24 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey saw the March filers one and figured I start the April one. Basically just a post to discuss our newbie journeys for whoever has applied around this time. Here's my story/questions so far:

Story: I sent out my 130 April 1st and certified it through the post and it wasn't received til the 7th :-P My USCIS center is California and I'm still waiting on my NOA1. It has been 9 days :-( Hopefully I'll get it in the mail today! I've noticed it takes 7-12 days, so I'm still expecting to wait a little bit before freaking out.

Question: If my wait for the NOA1 passes the average wait time how do I contact USCIS without a receipt number. I just tried calling and they wanted me to enter a receipt number which is found on this form that I don't have yet. Also, has anyone else been waiting a little longer than usual??

I sent a Money Order and it will cost me like $6 just to check if it's cashed so I'm going to wait a couple more days to see if I get the NOA 1 before I pay to check my money order status. I have a feeling these petitions sit for a bit untouched and when they get their hands on it they'll cash it and send off the NOA1's around the same time. I'm pretty sure none of our stuff is lost. Like i said I know they received mine because they signed for it, so I'm just waiting...just wish they would hurry up!

Agree with you, and will wait till next week to see if there's any update. Hope we all get NOA soon.

GUYS,

Any update on NOA 1. We have our checks cashed but haven't seen any activity of G1145 email/txt. Neither actual NOA-1 in the mail. Also, the WAC no. from the back of the cashed check is also not showing any information online.

So anyone in the same boat who are still waiting for their NOA's. Post your timelines.
