Where's my IV fee?!

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We paid our AOS fee on 02 Jul 2014. Today is 21 Aug 2014. That's 40 days, or 35 business days and the IV fee is still not available for payment. Anyone else experiencing wait times like this??

When did you submit the ds-261? Did you resubmit it at any time? One person just waited 64 days.

We're also waiting for the iv Invoice but today i got an email from the nvc with a subject line "AIVF for neopost ds1200" i got excited and checked the pay portal but still nothing. Im hoping that the email is somehow connected to the iv invoicing.

It is connected to the IV invoice! :) It'll still take 1-2 day(s) for the payment to become available in their system.

DS-261 was submitted on 03 Jul 2014. Did not re-submit at any time.

Frustrating as it is to wait, I am glad that other people have had this happen too! I was afraid there was something wrong or we had made some huge mistake somewhere!

I had to wait 68 days, hopefully you won't be waiting that long.


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

April 6th 2018: Card in hand. Has incorrect "resident since" date. Submitted service request on I-751 case (typographical error on permanent resident card) and an I-90 online.

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS. Also some time in May I sent a letter to Potomac telling them I want to withdraw my I-90 since CSC were handling it.

August 8th 2018: Card in production thanks to the direct involvement of Senator Sherrod Brown's team

August 13th 2018: Card mailed
