DCF in London

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed I-130 DCF to London on Feb 7 2012. They charged my credit card within a couple of days, so I know they got it, but haven't received NOI-1 (not by email nor by post).

Anything to worry about? Can I assume that the date they charged my CC is the processing date?

The website indicates a postcard will be sent as NOA1

Upon receipt of the I-130, USCIS will send an email/postcard to the petitioner confirming the date the I-130/I-360 was filed with the USCIS London Field Office.

And it sounds like they may also send an email if you filled out G-1145.

Form G-1145 – E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance (PDF - 1kb) although instructions on the form relates to the Lockbox filing, please use this form to advise the London Field Office of your email address so that we can properly notify you of your filing of the I-130.

Here's a contact page if you want to call/write them http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=36dc6c0fe7f5d010VgnVCM10000048f3d6a1RCRD&vgnextchannel=1ac900c262197210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD

Hi Tiekey

The same thing happened to us. We called to find out where our postcard was and the person we spoke to says they don't send postcards anymore. The gist of the short conversation was that we needn't worry. If they've taken your money you know it's being processed. The wait time for the next notification is approximately 12 weeks from the date they took your payment. Up to date processing times can be found here: http://london.usembassy.gov/dhs/uscis/i130filing.html

Hope this helps!
