Hello all,

Just wondering what I should do if USCIS lost my paperwork. Has anyone else ever experienced this and if so How did they resolve it? Thank you.

I forgot to mention that it may have been lost after my NOA2 approval was sent to me. Thanks.

It is not clear how you come to know that your petition was lost after NOA2.

Have you checked your case status at https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/jsps/selectusertype.jsp?

Can you provide for us the dates of the following so we can better answer your question:

I-129F submit

NOA-1

NOA-2

It can take up to months for USCIS to forward your petition to the next post, which is NVC. IF USCIS confirms that your petition was indeed lost, you can start with your NOA-2 document and contact the USCIS or the DHS below. Don't take action until you know that your petition is official lost.

why do you believe it is lost? This is actually very rare. After NOA2 approval the paperwork is sent to NVC, USCIS no longer has it. For what reason do you suspect it is lost?

So many things can go through our heads because we are not actually seeing anything happen while we wait. But you have to be patient, the feeling is the same for many of us. Unless you have solid information of the papers being lost I would wait a reasonable amount of time. Or you can call NVC to see if they received your petition.

Thank you everyone for the replies. I have been freaked out because the NVC still has no record of my case and my NOA2 approval notice said it was forwarded to the consulate. It is obvious to me now that I may have to wait another month before I know anything.....Thanks again

Hello,

I sent the I129F in March it was received March 15th.

The NOA1 notice was March 17th

I received the NOA2 May 5th. It said that it was being posted to the listed consulate.

I just want to prepare for the worst case scenerio. The NVC has no record of my case as of May 29th. I am hoping they will have it by the middle of June.

Thank you for the information.

John
