8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

Welcome a new member,please.

I have an " interesting" situation. We filed for I-130 and got NOA-2 on Aug,19th. So, our documents should have been in NVC by now. I searched on the forum and saw that it usually took about two weeks for approved I-130 to get to NVC.

But our documents are not in NVC still. My love called a couple of times, and I emailed them. NVC says that they have no records of our case. It is 5 weeks since I130 got approved already, and I do not know what to do!!!

Did anybody have similar experience?

I would appriciate any help.

You need to call the USCIS and request that they do an inquiry as to where your petition is. Hopefully you kept copies of everything just in case.

Good luck

Thank you for the answer. So in case they got lost, we wil have to file from the very beginning and wait again for an approval? Even if on-line system of INS says that the case has been approved? :huh:

Natalia, no!

Your case is not sent in an envelope by itself to the NVC; the Service Center waits until they have a batch to send.

Believe it or not, it can take a month to go from SC to NVC, tho I don't think it would be that long.

You don't need to call anyone or do anything at this point. If you do, I doubt you would get any answers.

I would contact the USCIS to ask if your petition has been sent yet, if it has explain to them that it has been 5 weeks and the NVC has not recieved anything, and ask what can be done.. also in the mean time why not check the timelines to see who else was approved around the same time as you, and check with them as to whether they have their NVC reference number yet?

All the best.. and good luck :thumbs:
