9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, friends, please help us, bcause we do give the embassy's name on i-130 line 22, that is Canada concular. We got our NOA 2 recently, but it said: The above petition has been approved. The petition indicates that the person for whom you are petitioning is in the States and will apply for adjustment of states. He or she should contact the local USCIS office to obtain form I-485.

If the person for whom you are petitioning decides to apply for a visa outside the States, the petitioner should file form I-824.

I think that problem might due to I have visit my husband too many times, and I read some topic regarding the form i-824, its gonne take 6 months, we really dont want to waste such a long time, so what should we do now? Please HELP :help: any input will be a great help for us. Thanks a lot, take care!

For some reason USCIS thinks the beneficiary is within the US and is eligible for adjustment of status. Since the beneficiary is not (judging from your post) you can do a few things. You can review your I-130 packet and see what indicated to them that he/she was in the US and file the I-824. You can call USCIS and ask them (useless if you ask me - but you can try) or you can just avoid wasting any time, file the I-824 and move on.

I'm sorry this has happened to you

Good luck

yup, have the USCitizen Spouse go to an infopass appointment, and settle this matter, face to face.

Was an error on part of the USCIS, based on what you have in yer I-130.

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

The same thing happened to me. I had to go through my senator and ask the USCIS to look at my package again. I called the USCIS directly and they would not help.

The senators office convinced the USCIS to forward my package to the NVC. Good luck to you!
