NVC still not received the file......

Has been just over 7 weeks now. Our I-129F was approved the 16th of September and I have called numerous times but the NVC have still not received our file from the USCIS. Is like it has vanished. Everyone else seems to have theirs show up quickly but ours hasn't even shown up. I've also called the USCIS, DOS and have also contacted one of the Texas Senator's now. Any advice? What else can I do? The USCIS approval is valid until the 15th of January. Is looking like we will have to apply for an extension at some point since it is taking more time than expected. Hoping the file hasn't been lost. :cry:

If you don't interview by Jan15, all you have to do is take a new letter of intent from the USC petitioner to the interview and they extend the petition approval. That is a London procedure and may not apply to other countries. So nothing to worry about as far as your petition expiration.

You could try Congrssman Roger Williams representing Hico, TX. He was re-elected yesterday. He has a web page with the release form on it and says:

"If you can't get an answer from a federal agency in a timely fashion, or if you feel you have been treated unfairly, my office may be able to help resolve a problem or get you the information you need. While we cannot guarantee you a favorable outcome, we will do our best to help you receive a fair and timely response to your problem."

He has on office in Cleburn and has less people he represents. Senators represent the entire state of Texas.

Thank you so much Nich-Nick. You've been such a tremendous help. I will contact his office then. I agree that it will be much smaller. Makes me happy I moved from the Houston area earlier this year to a smaller place! I'm hoping that the NVC is just backlogged rather than lost paperwork.

Make sure you tell them a normal time when cases are received so they understand the process. And ask for something specific like exactly which agency has your file because neither claims to have it. Tell them you would like their office to request that the physical file be found since that is your real issue. It is more than. "Why is this taking so long" request. You want somebody to lay their hands on your actual folder and report where it is because neither agency claims to have it.
