Dual Citizenship Petioner and no receipt yet

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am a US Citizen, I was born in the US and have a US passport but my mother is English and after a short/sweet marriage/divorce, I have been living in the UK for most of my life.

In the past two years I have started to live in the US and later Australia where I met my Fiance. And we want to live closer to my family in the US. So we sent off the I-129f at the beginning of December, our cheque has been cashed but we haven't received any kind of receipt yet, although I listed my family home in texas for my address as I am currently in between places, so I don't think it will be postal issues.

I am now worrying that my unusual circumstances are possibly going to cause delays?

Has anyone else got experience with these cirucmstances, or noticed a delay in receiving a receipt notice or case number in the last month?

Thanks

Laura

I don't see why it would be a problem as long as you are domiciled in America. I'm a dual citizen and we had no problems with the I129f.

As to the petition, call and get a case number.

It shouldn't. To my knowledge they don't look into the file at all before sending the reciept (NOA1). They just give it a number, put it in a pile, and send you a notification with your number on it.

When did you send the package exacly? Did you send it by regular mail from Australia? In this case your petition might have taken some time just to get there. And your notification will take some time to get to your adress in texas... So I wouldn't worry too much just yet.

Did you give them your email adress?

edit: also, as Nola suggested, calling them might be the best solution to reassure you

If they cashed your check, then they have received your paperwork. If they have your paperwork you will get something in the mail. Just the way it works. It should be sent to your Texas address. give it another few days or just put in a phone call to make sure they got the address correct.
