You should be contacting the IV Unit in Manila, as your USCitizen Petitioner filed the I-130 into Manila IV.

Only Manila IV will know anything about that casefile.

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.
