I-130 NOA1 - Form I-797 Returned by Post Office

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I mailed off the I-130 package on November 25, 2013. On December 3, 2013, I received both an email and a text from USCIS saying that my case has been accepted and routed to the USCIS Nebraska Service Center for processing and that I would receive Form I-797 in the mail. The email and text included my Receipt Number. I haven't received the Form -I-797 in the mail yet, so I went online to check the status of my case. It shows that the Post Office returned the notice as undeliverable on December 17, 2013 (yesterday). My address has not changed. I called USCIS and gave them my address (which is the same address on the I-130) so they will resend the notice. I also called the Post Office to complain. They took my phone number and said they will talk to the letter carrier about it and call me back.

Will this delay my case?

Also, for timeline purposes, is receipt of the email/text from USCIS considered receipt of the NOA1, or should I wait until I get the form in the mail?

I received email today saying I got RFE. It didn't say why; I have to wait until I get it in the mail. I sumbitted more evidence than necessary for I-130 approval. So the only thing I can think of is they are giving me an RFE for the address problem. Has anyone every heard of them giving an RFE because of returned mail? Note: I had called them telling my mailing address was correct and then sent me an email after that stating they were resending the NOA1.

1. They will not give you a RFE for wrong address. Never heard of such thing.

2. The Post Office returning your mail piece will not delay your process. You will still get your notifications via texts & email anyway.

3. Thirdly, USCIS has sent you an email informing you that they will be re-sending your NOA1. I wouldn't fret.

4. Spend your wait time by reading up on the next steps i.e. NVC doc intake process & consulate interview reviews.
