Recommended Posts

Why is it that our Re affirmed NOA2 is dated April 6 but when we try calling NVC again and again they keep on saying its still in USCIS???But we have a MNL case number already??Should we wait a little more???Should we call USCIS???Should we ask an assistance to his Local congressman. I told him about this but he think I’m just crazy that we can ask help from his Congresswoman,I’m so stressed out! :( What is the best thing to do...? :help:

USCIS approves cases & then gives them a bar code. They are then scanned & forwarded to NVC. Until that bar code is scanned by NVC it appears that they do not have your case & USCIS indicates they no longer have the case.

You are not crazy to think you can ask for help from a politician. Just dont get carried away & actually begin to think they will do anything to help. They all have a liason staff member & forms to fill out. That is the assistance a USC can expect. They are trained to placate the tax payer. These are the same politicians that have been unable & unwilling to reform the immigration laws in the last 60 years. If the USC believes they can help use the politicians web site to download the form to ask them to assist.

The USC should make an INFO PASS appointment & ask USCIS to track down the case. Take the NOA2 to their office. Use USCIS web site to find the link to set the meeting.

There are dozens of cases here on VJ where a simple call and a filled out privacy form to a congressman helped those members go from EXACTLY what Cathy is experiencing to having a case being forwarded to the embassy within days of congressional inquiry. These two posts come to mind, but there are many others on VJ where the congressman actually was able to shake a petition loose from some lazy federal worker's desk. I worked in the Pentagon for 12 years and let me tell you, anytime we would get a "congressional" (letter from a congressman), we dropped everything and responded because we have to respond within 3 days. We get a letter from Joe Q Public and of course the response time is not so urgent.

An INFO PASS appointment will take off another month or two of time and the likely response will be to just wait until they are finish with their review and....you have to go down to your local USCIS for the appointment. Almost a waste of time in my book because you're asking an agency to check up on itself without any urgency of a higher power overseeing their actions. Get a congressman involved, it's just a simple letter and a request for status. It's a free service to US Taxpayers and it's their job. That's why we vote them in office.

Cathy: Your USC fiance can send the privacy form to Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi from the link I sent you. It's really very painless and costs nothing to do. And chances are pretty good that within a week you will have an answer. This is an election year as well, so staffers are working a little harder for constituents. Good Luck.

Waiting without knowing is no fun. We were caught in the 2007 delays and Document Verification fiasco. I learned a few things fighting the delays.

From my experience I would definately write your congressperson and senator. The reason for contacting more than one Congressional rep is the speed and effort can be amazingly different. Include your case number and MNL Case number in your letter.

Before writing the Congressional reps I would suggest calling NVC one more time. Have your fiance ask about your case. When they tell him it is not on record then have your fiance ask the NVC CSR why you were given an MNL case number on April 12th? We he gets a poor answer (or the runaround) ask for a supervisor who can actually answer the question? The CSR will try to avoid putting on a supervisor, but stand firm and request one. Put all the information received from NVC into your Congressional inquiry letter.

Also, if your fiance has received a letter from NVC then contact the Manila Embassy to see if they have your case.

There are dozens of posts that indicate Congress has no power over USCIS. My case was certianly not affected by Senator Finestines office. In fact it took them 60 days to get any answer at all & when they did they sent the information to the wrong address. By the time I got them to send it to my address it was irrelevent. The person that did that ( Gloria ) has over 20 years of experiance at these things & still couldnt get it right.

The responce from USCIS wont be as you state. The O P has the NOA2 which is the approval by USCIS. Her case is not at USCIS waiting for review. That can be confirmed by an INFO PASS meeting.

Manila embassy don't have our case yet:(,I just made an inquiry last may 10 and this is what it says

Records indicate that on December 31, 2009, NVC returned the visa petition to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office in Laguna Niguel, California. As the case is no longer under the State Department’s jurisdiction, future inquiries should be directed to the USCIS National Customer Service Center by telephone at 1-800-375-5283.

After my Fiance have been calling NVC so many times he also send an inquiry to NVC and this is their reply

Dear Sir/Madam:

Your inquiry has been received at the National Visa Center (NVC).

The petition has been returned to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS-formerly known as INS). Any further inquiries should be directed to CIS.

:(:(:(

we never received a letter from NVC yet,is it possible he could get to talk to a supervisor in NVC?what if the CSR refused to connect him?He wants to call USCIS but i think they will just say they already sent it to NVC:(

Yes, it is possible. The CSR will try to refuse, but you must remain firm in your request to soeak with a suoervisor. The reason I listed the questions to ask is that when ask, "why you have an MNL number but they do not show your petition on file," puts the CSR in a position where they cannot answer your question. Having the CSR in this situation gives the caller more leverage in requesting a supervisor.

As Ning stated, some Congressional reps are slow and do not have power with the USCIS or Department of State in your case. This is why I suggested contacting several reps. In our case, Sen. Obama's office was very slow as it took them over 30 days to send me a release of information form. My congressman's office assistant was of no help. But Senator Durbin's assistant had my problems corrected before Obama's assistants even mailed me the release form.

P.S. There is no gaurantee that taking action will get results. But, by taking action it brings awareness to the problems with USCIS and the Department of State. The NVC and the US Embassies are run under the Department of State.

I think he will see that an Info Pass meeting will produce results. He will be talking directly to a USCIS officer. If they can not answer the question they will have a supervisor answer the question. The answer will be given right there if they can, based on what they see when they pull up the case history on the computer. The least that will happen is they will track down the case & expose the actual problem. This will not take 6 months.

To make the appointment go to the USCIS site & find the link. I think its on the lower left side. Easy to find & easy to set the appointment. The actual meeting will not take more than 30 minutes.

Manila embassy don't have our case yet:(,I just made an inquiry last may 10 and this is what it says

Records indicate that on December 31, 2009, NVC returned the visa petition to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office in Laguna Niguel, California. As the case is no longer under the State Department’s jurisdiction, future inquiries should be directed to the USCIS National Customer Service Center by telephone at 1-800-375-5283.

Hmmmm. If the case was returned to USCIS, looks like youo got a denial from the NVC. I would think that you would have received a notice from USCIS or even the NVC on the reason for the denial. I agree that at this point, contacting a politician is not a bad idea. I know that many people have reasons for not wanting to contact their local politicians. I have a good friend who waited almost 18 months for his wife/daughter's paperwork. He kept getting the same BS from the NVC. Once he contacted his Senator, he had an approval within 4 days. So it does work. Good luck on resolving this, and I hope everything works out for you!
