Good luck on your journey! Wow, you sent a lot of things. The beneficiary's birth certificate and passport pages weren't necessary yet. At least you have them though so that you an send them to NVC about 5 months down the road from now.

Congrats and good luck!

My heart jumped when I read 'You missed one thing' and then a relief on the 2nd sentence. Everything went better than expected.

I checked the tracking # of my package and it says:

We attempted to deliver your item at 11:50 AM on July 10, 2010 in CHICAGO, IL 60680 and a notice was left. You may pick up the item at the Post Office indicated on the notice, go to www.usps.com/redelivery, or call 800-ASK-USPS to arrange for redelivery. If this item is unclaimed after five days then it will be returned to the sender. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.

Is this a problem? I'm a bit worried. Need help/advice, thanks!

There has been a status update for my case:

Initial Review

On November 2, 2010, we transferred this case I130 IMMIGRANT PETITION FOR RELATIVE, FIANCE(E), OR ORPHAN to our TEXAS SERVICE CENTER location for processing and sent you a notice explaining this action.

What does this mean? Will the time it takes to process goes back to zero? It was originally sent from Chicago lock box to California Service Center.
