Still awaiting NOA1

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm new on here, just joined today, I am hoping I can get some help on here. I am from the Rep of Ireland and currently live here with my wife who is American, we sent off the I-130 petition on the 12th February. I registered the post so that I could track it, unfortunately I was only able to track it as far as being received in the USA and not as far as the Chicago lockbox on the 14th february. Now the thing is I still haven't received any NOA1 even though the g1145 was filled out and attached. I really thought I'd have an email by now. I'm just wondering if I should expect to wait a little longer or shold I try to contact the USCIS, I don't know what number I'd call and don't really want to end up spending a fortune on a call without getting any real info. Also after mailing my package I realised that on both the g-325a forms we marked the box Status as Permanent Resident as I didn't know we were supposed to tick other and write I-130 so now I am worried about this, I really hope something that small wouldn't hold anything up? Any advice on what we should do would be greatly appreciated..

I didn't receive an email when the NOA1 went out, rather it just came in the mail eventually. I also attached the G-1145. If you're using an international address, my guess would be that it's in the mail. As you don't have a receipt number yet it will probably be difficult to look up at this point. I filed from within the US and it still took almost two weeks to get the NOA1. Sent it registered mail on the 4th, check cashed on the 8th, and the NOA1 arrived in the mail on the 16th. Did others get an email for the NOA1?

Hey, yeah all I can do now is wait and hope it comes soon, I guess since I am in Ireland it might take a little longer to get to me, the whole process itself is so overwhelming I was hoping to get off to a good start.
