Filed I-130, received receipt and nothing else

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I filed I-130, received case status number in Mid-February and received receipt in mail. Its already April and there is nothing else I have received. Not even a notice for biometrics. What other forms are next? Literally all I did was submit the I-130 with the required documents and nothing else. I feel like I am not being told anything. Others mention I need to fill out a form that evidences my capacity to provide financial support. The government has not told me anything or sent me anything.

First of all, fill in your Timeline.. incl visa type (K1, CR1).. to help those of us trying to assist you to do so accordingly.

Then, go through this guide. It lists the series of steps you go through. The processing time for your I-130 approval depends on the Service Center your petition is at. http://www.visajourney.com/content/i130guide1

You can seek further details, including finances, after i130 with many of us here to guide you.

My I-130 took 2 months to be approved. Follow Kiran n Suds advice, read that link and prepare yourself. The government, the post office, the mailman...they will all take their time, so its on you to be proactive and push, just keep researching and you will be fine. Get all the documents, fill out all the forms, that way, when they notify you, you just have to send them.

Good luck
