Hey! So I need a bit of help understanding something....

I JUST got this email from USCIS

"*** DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS E-MAIL ***

The last processing action taken on your case

Receipt Number: WACXXXXXXXXXX

Application Type: I129F , PETITION FOR FIANCE(E)

Current Status: Approval notice sent.

On May 26, 2010, we mailed you a notice that we have approved this I129F PETITION FOR FIANCE(E). Please follow any instructions on the notice. If you move before you receive the notice, call customer service at 1-800-375-5283.

If you have questions or concerns about your application or the case status results listed above, or if you have not received a decision from USCIS within the current processing time listed*, please contact USCIS Customer Service at (800) 375-5283.

*Current processing times can be found on the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov under Check My Case Status and Check Processing Times.

*** Please do not respond to this e-mail message.

Sincerely,

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)"

So I went to uscis.gov and checked my status and it says

"Post-Decision Activity

On May 26, 2010, we mailed you a notice that we have approved this I129F PETITION FOR FIANCE(E). Please follow any instructions on the notice. If you move before you receive the notice, call customer service at 1-800-375-5283.

For approved applications/petitions, post-decision activity may include USCIS sending notification of the approved application/petition to the National Visa Center or the Department of State. For denied applications/petitions, post-decision activity may include the processing of an appeal and/or motions to reopen or reconsider and revocations."

I'm VERY confused...does this mean what I think it means??? Ah my heart is racing a million miles a minute right now....

It means your case is approved at USCIS. So that's one step done. Congratulations!

You can now get ready for the next steps.

You may have got a second email about your I-130 too.

If your I-130 and I-129 both get approved together then they would proceed only with the I-130.

I wonder if they'll move this discussion back to the CR-1 forum then.

My I-130 is still at the "initial review" step. Weird thing is, our I-130 was sent in first (NOA 1 date of March 9th) and my I-129F had a NOA 1 date of March 31st.

What do y'all think? I'm REALLY trying hard not to get my hopes up too high (only to find out it's just gonna be administratively closed) but I gotta admit, I am pretty excited lol.

CONGRATS!!! YAY! First March Approval! Woooo!

So, you are approved for the I-130, right? When did you send your I-129F? I'm a little confused cause your offical timeline says March 2nd, but your signature says March 14th? Wondering how far we are behind you (my NOA1 was on March 15th).

Anyways, CONGRATS!!! I can't imagine how excited/releived/happy you are! So glad they are FINALLY picking up with March filers! YAY!!!

USCIS received our I-130 application on March 2nd, notice date is March 9th, we got the notice in the mail March 14th.

USCIS received our I-129F application March 30th, notice date is March 31st and we got the notice approx a week later.

Sorry for any inconsistency with the dates..

Tonight, we got an email that the I-129F was approved first, 20 mins later was the email that our I-130 was approved.

*edit* - I fixed my timeline, I'm such a dork, I filled in the date of the NOA1 sent as the date my hubby and I sent our application in...dur on my part!

Get ready for the NVC journey now! Start getting your tax returns and police certificates ready.

At least you got your emails at a civilized hour.

I had set up text alerts at the USCIS website. I got a text message at 2:30 AM for the I-129F. And when I sat up scratching my head as to how my I-129F got approved so quickly, suddenly I heard the chime of another text message and I just knew it was going to be the I-130!

Thanks!

Actually I have my long form birth cert, my police cert and am working on filling out some of the longer answers required on my DS 230, I'm actually kinda stumped right now because of question 40 (b). First of all, it says "Except as otherwise provided by law, aliens within the following classifications are ineligible to receive a visa"

I was convicted of one count of theft under $5000 in 2004 in Canada. It was a summary judgement with a conditional discharge. If I had been sentenced to jail time (I wasn't) the MAX sentence I would have received was 6 months. When I got my police clearance check from the RCMP (I went to the local RCMP and got my fingerprints done, then sent those to the central RCMP in Ontario) it came back clear. Because I got a condition discharge and never got into any trouble, it has fallen off my record completely. Of course, I am going to be truthful and answer "yes" to question 40 (b) but because I was only convicted of one charge, and it was a summary offense and the max I could have been sentenced to was 6 months, I *believe* this covers my sitation....(http://www.serottelaw.com/index.php?submenu=Cross_Border_Issues_and_Inadmissability&src=gendocs&ref=Cross_Border_Issues_and_Inadmissability&category=Services)

Summary Convictions Under Canadian Criminal Law A Canadian citizen who has a single conviction involving a crime of moral turpitude may not be inadmissible if the conviction was by "summary judgment" and not by "indictment." Under Canadian law, certain offenses may be treated by the court as summary convictions. A summary conviction in Canada carries a maximum term of imprisonment of six months. Therefore anyone with only one conviction, when it is a summary conviction for a CIMT, is not inadmissible to the U.S. This exception applies to only one CIMT conviction. If the person has more than one summary conviction, they are inadmissible and must apply for a waiver. It should be noted that the exception applies only to CIMT's and not to any type of drug convictions.

So I guess what I'm asking is, once I answer "yes" to that question, should I include a separate sheet with details of the crime, my sentence and the fact that I shouldn't be inadmissible because I fall into the above category? Of course, I'll be sending along a copy of my official court docs. What do y'all think?

Any input would be gladly accepted.

Thanks!
