Recently approved I-130?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Dear Friends,

This thread has been created to share your timeline/info/experience with NVC whose I-130 has recently approved. In other words, I am just checking if there's someone whose I-130 recently approved and waiting for NVC to receive case and assign case number. How long usually is it taking NVC to assign case number after USCIS approval hard copy?

About me:

07/20- I-130 approved

07/26 - NOA2 hardcopy received

waiting for NVC to receive my case and assign case number.

Mine was only a few days, if that. But, I never received anything from them in the mail about it. I wasted 2 months sitting around waiting for a number when they already had one for me and didn't let me know.

Keep calling the NVC and go through the automated responses. You'll have to give it the number that's listed on your approval letter and the automated machine will tell you your case number once it's in their system.


USCIS Journey

1-25-10: Mailed I-130

1-28-10: USCIS receives I-130

2-02-10: USCIS initiates processing

3-25-10: I-130 approved

-- Two months wasted waiting for case number which was already assigned without notifying us. >=( --

-- In the long run, not a bad thing, as we saved up more money. --

NVC Journey:

4-05-10: NVC initiates processing

6-01-10: Paid AOS fee / Completed DS-3032

6-04-10: Paid IV fee

6-10-10: Mailed AOS

6-14-10: NVC receives AOS

7-06-10: Mailed DS-230

Thanks monsterna,

Seems like your priority date was not current, is that why NVC didn't inform you that they received your case?

well, I have been checking NVC Automated Response 50 times a day biggrin.gifand tired of hearing "There's no record of this case...."

No luck yet :(
