Hello VJers, I feel like a koo koo bird.. I just called USCIS again. I told them i wanted to find out my service request. The rep told me that my case is under review... I said the website says Initial Review,.. The rep says, pay no attention to the website, the site has a glich.

My question was how can a petition go from Initial Review to Under Review? All the rep said was, i would recieve a letter in the mail. And. They have 60 days. Why didn't they give me an RFE? I am so confused... Thanks 4 reading...

I am baffeled, but you just gave me hope. Did it take them 60 days outside of your processing time?. Maybe me getting pregnant while in Iraq have something to do with it. I put on my application that i was 4 months. Who know, i have to keep praying. Thank you for you input. God bless..

Initial review is what your case status will be until you are approved.

I asked in one of your other posts but you must not have seen it.

What did you send in exactly? Just the I-129F and G-325a?

It's ok! Just wanted to ask what you sent so that I can try and help you. :)

I-129F is the form for the visa but you also need to fill out a G-325a for each of you, did you do that? The G-325a asks questions about where you live and your employment history, the I-129F is longer and asks different questions.

Hello, No I did not know about those forms.. But I also wanted to know why the have not sent me a RFE? I Know that my case is complicated, this is why I am so nervous. :help:

How is your case complicated if you don't mind me asking? Are there special circumstances?

From what I have read of your posts already, it sounds like you know you are going to get an RFE. What I would suggest doing is getting together the rest of the information you should have sent originally with your application. That way you can be ready with everything when you do finally get the RFE.

You can find a great guide to help you on what you need here. You need to pay attention to the "Assembling the I-129F Package: Checklist" section at the moment. You will need to follow the other steps later on in the process.

The official instructions for the I-129F is here. They are quite easy to follow but the guides here will help you to understand how to get the information and how to assemble it.

You will need the following things:

* Copy of birth certificate (or passport) to show you are an American citizen. You can find help on this in the guide.

* Evidence that you have met in the last two years. Boarding passes and passport stamps/Photos of you together/phone bills showing you calling each other. You can also find help on this in the guide.

*Signed original statements from each of you saying you intend to marry within 90 days of their entry to USA on K-1. Example forms can be found here.

*If either of you were married before, documents of the termination of the marriage.

*G-325a for each of you. You can find examples of this form here.

*Passport photo of your fiance

*Passport photo of yourself

I think that is about it lol! You need to go through the guide and the I-129F instructions to see what applies to you, but this should get you started in the right direction. If you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask ok!? :)

I can imagine that when being pregnant this process is even more complicated than it is normally, so anything I can do to help! :)

Your case should be ok. Age shouldn't be a problem. If you have stamps in both of your passports and boarding passes showing you were both there at the same time, make copies of these and print any pictures of you together, you should be fine.

To the OP:

You have been given some great advice. :star:

It is up to you to read, heed, and act on it. You can do it.

Make preparations to respond promptly and accurately to any RFEs, and rejoice if all proceeds without significant delays or detours. If you are concerned that a particular aspect of your petition could be the basis for increased scrutiny, be sure to be able to provide compelling evidence of the validity of your petition and your relationship. You can be relatively certain that others have previously traveled a similar or the same path as yours.

Good luck on your immigration journey.
