When is my deadline?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone.


Does anybody know, when my deadline for sending the package to NVC is, if NOA-2 is dated by May 24th 2014, but I was paying AOS and visa fees in November and December 2014? It's for my Mom's immigration I-130.


NOA-2 says, I have 1 year withing which I have to contact them. If ,they don't hear from me within a year, the petition is closed. But probably, that year now counts from the time I last submitted the fees. Am I right?

I emailed NVC a question on Feb 17th, and got a response on April 4th. It's useless.

You are better off calling them. Their number is 1 (603) 334-0700.

Usually you have to call 5-10 times to get through, then wait on hold for at least 20 minutes... but's it the fastest way to get an answer.

Good luck!
