60 days passed - continue to wait or resend?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I want to clarify before beginning that this question is not related to the one in my timeline - it's actually for my wife's mother's case - I am the co-sponsor/agent on that case.

On January 13 (2015), I mailed in the AOS packet with I-864s for both sponsor and co-sponsor (me) along with all related financial documents and bar code cover sheets. I sent the package via USPS priority mail tracking and received a confirmation of delivery on January 16 11:50 AM. It is now exactly 60 days since (including today). They say it takes at least 60 days to process.

I called the NVC today just to check on it and they stated they cannot say whether they've received it because it has not yet been scanned into their system. I was told my options are to either wait longer (an indefinite period of time - they cannot give any "max" time period estimates) or i can send in a new packet. They said it's possible they never received it (which doesn't make sense because the post office confirmed delivery) and I could send in another one. If I did send in another one and they eventually received the first one... then the new package would nullify the first and set me 60 days behind all over again - I hope that made sense.

So, I can either wait indefinitely for the first packet to be scanned running the risk that they never received it or they misplaced it; or I can send a new one and it will automatically nullify the first one and set me back 60 days.

This doesn't make sense to me --- has anyone heard this or can give me any advice? My thought at this point is to wait at least 2 more weeks since I'm right on the 60 day mark.

Thanks for all your advice - you guys and this forum are truly awesome.

Are you counting the 60 days as business days,not including weekend and federal holidays?. I believe you should wait the 2 weeks, then once again call NVC for case updates. Hope this helps, good luck.

Thanks for the advice! I know for a fact that the 60 days is not supposed to be limited to business days. I think I will take your advice to wait a little longer.
