Hey guys. So it's been over a year since I started the I-130 to bring my wife in from Argentina. I sent in the I-864 (Affidavit of Support) in February. They sent me a letter asking me to revise some answers, which I did and sent out the next day. It's been 2 months since I've heard back from them. My whole concern is that it's been OVER A YEAR. I call the NVC once a day now and it's ALWAYS busy!

Any advice?

You got a checklist in February so it hasn't been 60 days. When you get a checklist and have to send in corrections the 60 starts again. So figure the date it arrived back is your new scan date 60 days or so from that date.

You can call NVC but they will just tell you to wait the 60 days.

Is everything else done at NVC? The IV fee and package sent and DS-260 submitted?

Hi Wheels,

EVERYTHING is submitted. We are basically waiting for the medical exam appointment and the interview. It's just been taking a LONG time.

Yes, I noticed if NVC says "wait 4-6 months" it's 6 months, "30-60 days" it's 60 days.

I sent in my paperwork in January. Haven't heard a thing. It's taking more than 60 days for some of us, less for others and there's no transparency as to why.


Met in 2010 on a forum for a mutual interest. Became friends.
2011: Realized we needed to evaluate our status as friends when we realized we were talking about raising children together.

2011/2012: Decided we were a couple sometime in, but no possibility of being together due to being same sex couple.

June 26, 2013: DOMA overturned. American married couples ALL have the same federal rights at last! We can be a family!

June-September, 2013: Discussion about being together begins.
