I recieved my letter from immigration with the reciept number stating my case has been accepted and routed to the USCIS Nebraska Service Center for processing on Sept. 26th but havent heard anything since. When I check my case status on in USCIS website it hasnt changed at all. Maybe Im just being impatient but what should I expect next and around when? Thanks

If u send proper evidence to proove ur relationship the no RFE. Or else they will contact you for RFE.

If not RFE then after 5-6 months ur NOA2 should come which means approved from USCIS and the case will be sent to NVC for further processing. That is when DS 260, IV and AOS should be filed. And then once NVC completes case will be sent to nearest embassy of your benificery for interview.

So if all goes well and without trouble 14 months to receive visa. Long process and lots of documentation.

I am sorry to be the one who had to crack the news about this lengthy process. But that is how it is and we all are in same boat.

Mexico is near and i guess u guys dont need visa for short visit (no idea my wife keeps on saying she will show me mexico so i thought) and see here in our case my wife is across the globe in different time zone and very expensive for her to visit me frequently. Its killer.. She wanted to visit me for thanksgiving holiday and with heavy heart i had to say 'baby we need to save money for lawyer, forms, and ur visit during my interview at embassy and my flight back home' it was heart breaking

I bet its hard to be so far away from her. Since my husband is in Mexico it does make it easier to be able to see him. But like you said, the money is always a factor. I just cant wait to get him here and have all of this stuff done. It just seems like it is taking longer than it really is because of not knowing what is going to happen and really wanting the end results. I hope everything goes smoothly for you.

IF the OP has filed for an IR1/CR1 or most visas and lives in the US, then most likely the Ciudad Juarez Consulate will be processing after NVC.

Secondly, Mexicans need a visa to enter the US. US citizens can easily enter Mexico with just their US Passport.
