Is this normal?

I am shocked to my bone marrow.

We filed for a fiance visa in 2010, after over 8mths in AP and a 2nd interview, our case was sent back for revocation due to our own personal negligence.

We however went ahead to file I-130 in october 2011. Instead of the NOA2 I am waiting for, I see USCIS is working on the 1-129 petiton. In March 2012 status was updated that it was received, last week friday, another update the the fiance petition in now under intital review and will be forwarded to another office for processing.

Are they merging the fiance petition with the spouse petition?

Anyone been through similar experience?

How long will all this long process take?

Could VSC not send NOIR to me instead of sending it to another office to process? What is there to process anyway when a spouse petiton is in place.

By the way, I called USCIS and asked how we could close the returned petiton and all i was told was that once they see the spouse petiton the fiance one will automatically close.

Why all the waste of time and manpower on a petiton that has already expired. :bonk::bonk::bonk:

Pls advice.

Thanks.

Moved from Progress Reports to Process & Procedures.

Are they merging the fiance petition with the spouse petition?

No

Sounds like you received incorrect information, the I-129F that was filed previously and the I-130 that was recently filed are separate petitions and the previous I-129F would not "automatically close" because an I-130 was filed.

Thanks for all your replies.

How can I withdraw the petiton now, because I was made to understand that if the petiton is sent back for revocation you cannot withdraw it.

That if you do withdraw the petiton, a misrepresentation will be placed on your file. But I am surprised they are now workingon it.
