New Receipt Notice?

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband's CR-1 visa was approved on January 7th, and he's already done a POE and we've received his SSN card. I was under the impression that we are done at this point. We're just waiting on his green card and the only thing we have to worry about from there is filing for removal of conditions.

The other day we received an I-797C Notice of Action. I really have no idea what this is for. It looks like the basic receipt notice we received when we filed our initial I-130 petition. It just confirms that USCIS received my application of petition as shown above. The case type listed above is Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration. Today we received another notification for an ASC Appointment Notice to take his biometrics. In the Case Type for the ASC Appointment Notice is says X999 Unknown Form Type.

Is this a normal part of the CR-1 process to get his green card? Or did they somehow make a mistake in sending these to us? I haven't seen anyone mention anything about biometrics appointments and receipt notices after their visa applications have been approved.

I'm worried the might have made a mistake with his paperwork. In any case, any feed back would be greatly welcomed. I'll probably have Jeff call them tomorrow to find out more about it.

Never heard of that before, Generally CR-1 gets the green card 2 weeks ish after entry no biometrics or anything.

You may want to call USCIS and ask w t f? That doesn't seem right.

This is definately a mistake. When he went through his POE did they take fingerprints? If somehow it got overlooked that might be what they need. Other than that, somethings not right and you need to call them ASAP and get it figured out! :blink:


Invictus..

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

It is not a mistake... I got two letters in the mail for both my son and Myself. It is just confirming that they have received your poe documents use the Number at USCIS.com and you will probably see "case was processed on Jan 31st 2011 and you should receive your card within 30 days your card production was order Jan31st 2011" or On December 2, 2010, we mailed you a notice that we have approved this "OS155A IMMIGRANT VISA AND ALIEN REGISTRATION. Please follow any instructions on the notice" . Sarajane also got this letter. :)

They did not take his prints at POE. He said something about them already having them on file when they had to give him a "babysitting card" to enter the US to get married.

I'm going to have him call today to get more details, but that sounds ok to me.

Thanks so much for the help! I started to get a little panic-y thinking that our paperwork somehow got messed up.

I checked his receipt number on the USCIS website. The case status says, "Initial Review" and the explanation below says:

Your OS155A, IMMIGRANT VISA AND ALIEN REGISTRATION was accepted and is being processed at our TEXAS SERVICE CENTER location. On January 24, 2011, we mailed you a notice explaining this and describing how we will process your case. Please follow any instructions on this notice. You will be notified by mail when a decision is made, or if the office needs something from you. If you move while this case is pending, please use our Change of Address online tool to update your case with your new address or contact our customer service center at 1-800-375-5283.

Is that normal as well?

So what did you find out about those letters?

Why did they came if you have already received the green card?

Because I have received the same letters?

Please let me know..Thanks
