No delivery attempt for "returned" document

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


My wife (Irish Citizen) and I live in Dublin and I (US Citizen) am sponsoring her for a US permanent resident visa. We sent in the I-130 and accompanying forms/documents to the Chicage lockbox in early February. We received an email notification that our documents were approved and we were to wait for further information and information requests to arrive via post.

I've just checked our case status as we had yet to receive any information....and saw this message:

Document Was Returned To USCIS

On March 5, 2015, the Post Office returned your document to us. We will hold your document for 180 days or until September 1, 2015. Please go to www.uscis.gov/e-request to request that we resend the document to you. If you do not submit an online request by September 1, 2015, we will destroy your document and you will need to file a new Form I-130, Immigrant Petition for Relative, Fiance(E), or Orphan, with fee. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.

We have not moved nor have we received any notification that an attempt to deliver was ever made. The mail is delivered between 8-9AM, so I am ALWAYS home to see the postman—and he knows who I am. If there was a delivery that couldn't be made, he would have told me.

I went to the "redeliver" page mentioned in the notification above and started to fill out the form. When I got to the MAILING ADDRESS section, there was no option to select an overseas address. As I mentioned earlier, we live in Dublin.

1. What do I do about this?

2. Has this caused our application to be delayed?

We were REALLY hoping to have been on track for visa approval for the begining of the school year in September, 2015. If not, we run into a myriad of time-sensitive issues.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
