Am I the only one or does anyone else here see the effects of CSC's backlog of I-130's effect on the NVC now?

Been waiting a few weeks and no case yet.

Either it has not arrived yet (which I doubt) or it has not been entered into the system yet.

I am ready to get these documents submitted as I have all that is required including this year's

tax return transcript which I filed jointly.

How many others are in the same boat with me.......?

I agree. CSC was taking a long time to process and then all of sudden after the new year, it started speeding up. NOW it seems like it's taking the NVC a loooong time to receive petitions and create a case number. Mine took over a month. I called several time, hehe, and it took about 2 weeks for them to receive my file and then another 2 weeks to create a case number. At the end of last year there were people who got everything completed at NVC in a month now it takes that long to get a case number. :(

On the bright side, at least the delay qualifies us for the drop in IV fees!!
