First of all hello everybody.

My fiance applied for k-1 visa on 1 August and since then we have heard nothing coz of this he sent a second application on September 19 we havent heard anything no NOA1 or anything. He called them and asked about it and they said there is a slow down and they are just starting June`s application but when I see website there people hear about NOA1 in just a week even in this month.... What could wrong about our application I am really worried.....

Hmm, does seem a long time without NOA1. I did mine back in the spring and got NOA1 really fast (like under a week).

I guess the first questions I have are

- Where did you send it?

- did you include the form for receiving electronic notification?

- Did you get tracking when you mailed the application?

- Did they receive payment (i.e. cash the check?)

We sent it to Texas, and yes we included the receiving electronic notification we got a tracking number when mailed it and the package was picked and they havent cash the check, we sent 2 application first check we canceled it since we didnt hear anything about it.

That is so weird! First I would double check you got the address correct. This is where I sent mine:

United States Department of Homeland Security

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

P.O. Box 660151

Dallas, TX 75266

With the tracking, by picked, do you mean delivered? I was able to see on tracking that it was delivered and signed for.

If you have that, I would call USCIS again.. I never had an issue like this, and I don't know if they will be willing to give any information... but you could ask them to re-issue the I797-C? I would definitely call back and push again for it. I wonder when you called the first time if they confused your request with status on NOA2... because then June makes a bit more sense (5 months)

Is you do a search on here for "missing NOA1" there are some others that had a similar issue as this.

Sorry, wish there was an easier answer. I would be so frustrated too! Definitely call them again. I would maybe just call with the request to re-issue the I-797C and when they ask what the file number is say you don't have it. I think they can look things up if you have the name and DOB for the beneficiary and the petitioner.

Hope they can give you some answers.

Call USCIS and ask to speak with a Tier 2 Rep. The Tier 1 will need to gather your information -- but you don't have a receipt number so it'll be complicated, hopefully they can actually transfer you (I don't see why not). Tier 1 reps are useless, and you never ... ever... ever want to speak with them. They provide a ton of misinformation and they cannot provide you with any information you cannot find out online. Tier 2 reps are the ones who have half a clue as to what is going on, and can actually assist you with your specific case.

They will offer to have an officer call you back within a few days or the option to hold. Choose to hold. This will be a long wait (several hours). Once they transfer you and you're on hold, the electronic system will give you the option to have a "call back" service. Opt into this service. The call back service will call you back once your place in line is up in the next few minutes. You can hang up the phone and go about your day. Remember: you will not lose your place in line with the call back service.

Once you're speaking with a Tier 2 officer, explain to him or her that you've sent your I-129F in twice with the check. The first check was cancelled due to the fact that you never received your I-797C (aka Notice of Action or NoA1), and your second one you sent was marked as delivered over a month ago via the postal service, and tell them the address you mailed it to; also tell them that the check has not been cashed. Explain that this is the second application which was apparently lost and you're concerned. See if they can either locate your petition, or at least put in a request to locate it.

Hopefully you get some answers. The electronic system is notoriously unreliable, if you're not getting e-notifications always call, and once you have your NoA1 you'll have a receipt number to check on your status.

Good Luck!

Sounds to me like they're backlogged, that happens frequently to every USCIS SC. Don't worry too much and give it another couple of weeks. If you don't hear anything in a month, then call again. Based on how many other people are making posts about a similar issue, I'd say they were likely sent to the same USCIS SC, so worry a little less, if you can.

Good luck!

Their petitions may have been sent to another service center which is processing faster. Where in the US is the US Citizen located?
