Has anyone had to file form I-824? I have not lost my notice letter. I recieved a letter from USCIS stating my case status is outside processing time and want me to file I-824 for a duplicate copy of apprival notice. Does anyone know what is going on here? I have already contacted my congressman. This is my first time applying for a fiancee visa and I thought things would be simple. I am pretty much disgusted with this. I applied in Feb approved on May 1 and been waiting and waiting for USCIS to send to NVC. And now they want 200 more dollars to send to the NVC and who knows how long a wait for that. I am sick of this runaround and thinking about canceling and marrying in her country and filing a DCF. I did not know about that before and think that might be a better way.

if your approval was May 1, it would have expired on Sept 2. guess that's why they're asking for I-824.

when petition is at the Embassy, they usually extend the NOA2 if it will expire before the interview. question is why it was still at CSC or NVC? i can understand your frustration.

A great marriage is not when the "perfect couple" comes together.

It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.

Have you heard nothing from the service center since being approved in May? Why have you let it go so long and not know why it hasnt been transferred to NVC? Did you not receive the NOA2 when it was approved and did you make an enquiry about not receiving it? Are you certain that your case hasn't already been sent to NVC and then onto the consulate? I have not noted anyone receiving a request to file I-824 unless that person has enquired about their NOA2 because they haven't received it.

I recieved my NOA2 in may and I have called and called USCIS and NVC. Given the same answer give them 90 days, then 30 days and still told to wait. I have even called the emabassy and they haven't recieved anything. I have faxed a copy of NOA2 and given to NVC and USCIS and my congressman. I have no idea what is going on and it seems like no one else does either.

Damm........I'm sorry you are having this happen. I would keep on the congressperson to find out what is going on and make sure to also send a copy of the letter that you just received regarding the I-824. I would probably also include copies of anything else already sent to the congressperson so its all in one packet. It is just odd that you received the request for the I-824 under the circumstances that you have. Keep us up on what is happening. All the very best to you and I hope you get it sorted out soon.

Hi,

Myself had to file a i-824 several mths ago and some members might know me from all the cussing i made about this poxy form...well i called it the black hole form as you never know when ya going to come out. Also i think its a bloody scam of a form....

Now let me tell you the reasons of why and how i became to file this poxy form...On Q 22 on the i-130 my wife whos a usc put my country instead of hers which is USA a simple error if ya dont read correctly. which then we filed the 824 and payed and then put back into the system untill they the uscis got around it, which by the time we where Approved by the i824 was a 8mths +......8mths+ of wasted time.....

Now im not sure if this could be your case as your doing a different route than us. We also was Approved on our `130 but out of the blue came that i824 and they never did contact us we had to try and find the reason why.......oooopppps sorry yes it was on the bottom of our Approved 130 it said...

You have been Approved on your 130 ..if your husband is not in the usa he must file a i-824 form A.O.S

we both thought it was just standard thing to note on that Approvel Notice...

Call the uscis and try and speak to a human......they might give you a reason of why you had to file the i824 form.....if you do have to then just bite your bottom lip and fill it out as this sarger will cost you time...

Sorry i can't give you much good news but thats my sorry axx story on that matter..
