No Paper NOA2

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone!! Once again, it's been a while! Christmas and new years was hectic...but we finally have all our money together to apply for my AOS WOO HOO!

So, I want to know if there is anyone out there who applied for their AOS but did NOT receive a NOA2 in the mail.

I didn't get mine and I seen that it costs money to have them send me one. I was going to send then a printed copy of the email with my approval and also the web page on the USCIS website with my approval. Do you guys think this will be okay?

Thanks for any help!

Are you talking about the I-130 approval letter? You don't need an approved I-130 to send in the I-485, you just need to prove that it is pending, so send the first I-797 for the acceptance of the I-130 with the I-485 package.

No the NOA2 for K1 Visa approval.

Thanks a lot! I grudge paying the money for one when I didn't even get the first one.

If you have the letter from NVC stating your petition was approved and being sent to the consulate, then toss in a copy of that too. Add a note on your cover letter that you never received the approval notice in the mail and are providing the email, printout from the USCIS site and letter from the NVC in its place to prove you had an approved I-129F petition.
