Ok everyone,we got approved!!!I believe we never got the NOA2 because my fiance moved on 06.30 and it's been posted 06.25 so he'll be meeting his previous landlord today for the post.However what I'm trying to say is how we found out-through the US embassy who contacted me.We missed the whole process with sending the stuff to NVC since our online status never changed.Yesterday when I got the letter from the post here in Bulgaria my fiance called the USCIS and the regular customer service still told him whats on the website that they have received our RFE.Finally when he was transferred to higher level they told him the petition was approved on 06.25 !!!!!!!!!!!

A quick question,hopefully we won't need but,what if the NOA2 got lost?Is there a fine you have to pay and how long do you have to wait for a new one??And is it tremendously important to have it anyway???Oh and please advise what would he have to send me now.Exactly what documents so we won't miss something this time!!!!

Thank you all for the support and good luck :)

Oh and check your post!!!Sometimes things don't turn out the way you expect them too,but better :)))

You definitely need the NOA2 for AOS process later on. Please call USCIS asap if you never received the NOA2. Hopefully they could resend you a new one.

Otherwise you have to file I-824 form for a duplicate copy which cost $340! According to the USCIS Processing Time Information, it takes about 3 months to process I-824.


Done with K1, AOS and ROC

$340???Really??and 3months to wait for it???I don't get that do I really really need it then?Why is it so expensive to get the duplicate???I mean once the visa is approved what to they care about the NOA2?And how do we make the post office find it.My fiance moved on 06.30 but there is no letter from USCIS or NVC to neither his old or new address!!!This is crazy.So now I can't be plain happy,I need to worry about this piece of paper :(

If anyone knows what to do any advice would be appreciated.

They received it on 06.09 it said on the website.Since we never got the actual NOA2 by e-mail or paper we know now from the customer service over the phone that it has been approved and sent to us on 06.25.As far as I have made my research on RFE-NOA2 timing ususally it's about a month waiting.I hope this helps :)

Thanks Derry Lea...i will not be stressing out myself too much waiting for NOA2 after this RFE....i admit additional one month to wait makes it more difficult but the hope i can see from others who also got rfe makes the wait easier...again, thanks so much
