Submitted my 129-f, the journey has begun

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I mailed my package with the G-1145 form on top to the Dallas lockbox using USPS regular mail on 14 August, 2014. No response yet but I will wait another week before being concerned. I noticed that others get their electronic response in a few days but not me. They also have not cashed my check. I have never been the most patient person, so I have a feeling this is not going to be easy for me! The first think I do each morning is check email and phone messages.

I also wanted to thank the people who put this site together. It has been a great help to me in preparing my documentation. It also nice to have a forum to see how others are doing. I read that some have experienced tremendous frustration and I hope I will not join their ranks.

It may take 30 days for uscis to send out the notification. So yes, you need to start planting more of those patience seeds now-ish. :D

Congrats on your submittal. Best of luck on your journey. Also, if you could fix your Timeline, that'd be great. Specifically the part about TSC. If you are in California, it will be routed to CSC.

PS. When I first submitted my petition, I didn't hear anything for 1 week also. Exactly 1 week as a matter of fact.

Thanks for the welcoming replies. I fixed the consulate location to be Juarez Mexico - I guess it defaulted to some other place when I left it blank. Also, I sent the paperwork initially to Texas, as is required, and expect that it will be transferred to California. But I will have to wait and see.

Hi Tom. Just for clarity, you mailed your I-129f to the Dallas TX lockbox, and this is different from the Texas Service center.

As mentioned by Marco, your petition will then be assigned [NOT transferred] to CSC because CA is one of those states processed by CSC.

I know it can be confusing, especially since you're just starting the process. But there are folks who check the Igor's list and timelines here for reference. :)
