Sorry to hear about this! Good luck and stay strong. Since it's been so long, it might be worth it to follow up with them and see if there's any problem. Maybe it got lost in the mail or email?


06/06/2009 - Met bf in the USA who is an EWI from Guatemala (I am a US Citizen)

07/03/10 - Met with Immigration lawyer, informally engaged

??/??/10 - Formal engagement (notifying family, etc.)

??/??/?? - Married

??/??/?? - File I-130

After marriage we plan to follow our lawyers advice and have him return to Guatemala to wait for the paperwork, interview, etc. to go through. We'll apply for a hardship waiver because he's been EWI in US for about 5 years. He plans to get his GED before he returns to Guatemala so he can go to university there while he waits. This makes more sense instead of him working FT for $200 a month when I can easily send him that money and he can go to school instead.

omg..i think i know now the reason why until now we havent heard from USCIS regarding the I 130 application we mailed last june 16....we mailed it to this address since we use couriers/express delivery (thinking this is the right address for that)

USCIS

Attn: FBAS

131 South Dearborn- 3rd Floor

Chicago, IL 60603-5517

but now i check on the USCIS web site it says there it should be mailed to this address:

Any U.S. resident petitioner submitting a completed stand alone I-130 by courier/express delivery, should use the following address:

USCIS Lockbox

Attn: SAI-130

131 South Dearborn – 3rd Floor

Chicago, IL 60603-5517

oh my....what should i do now....i tried calling the 1800 number but i cant contact them here in manila...i also tried the 7853301048 number to call if ur in the philippines,..but its not accessible according to the automated voice on the phone....

any tracking info with the delivery service you are using ? what's it 'saying' to you on some online web portal ?

let us know which delivery service you used, perhaps we can point you in the right direction for 'tracking info' ?


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
