6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

TX lockbox received application Monday morning....And I just received the NOA1 e-mail this morning!! I guess this means my fiancee should start collecting evidence etc for the interview, correct? Is there a check list that I can send to her so she can start collecting all the documents for the interview? Is interview the packet 3 thing everyone talks about? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

hang on...your i 130 was only accepted meaning it will be processed..you still have to have the final approval...then you submit your evidence...however that said you can work on collecting evidence over the next 5 months because it seems it will be taking about that amount of time if not longer for approval...

Once your i 130 is approved THEN you submit evidence and they arrange an interview...

There are guides at the top of the home page to look at for timeline info and how to proceed from one step to another...

Congrats on your acceptance...now join us as we all await for approval and interviews and finally visas... :)

Hi! Sorry to disappoint you, but the NOA1 is just a confirmation that they've received your petition and nothing else. It means they have it in their files and when its turn comes they'll process it. I believe they first have to forward it to the relevant Service Center too.

This takes 3-6 months by current timsecales and the approval letter is the NOA2.

I suggest you take a good look at the Wiki on the top of this page to familiarise yourself with the whole process.
