Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I petitioned for both my parents to come to the States. This morning my father checked his status and it had changed to "case was approved on May 14 2015" he's in South Africa so he notified me while I was sleeping (time difference) when I woke up and saw the message I was ecstatic. Everyone was so happy. He just checked it again just now and it's changed back to "your case was received" how sad!!! Has this happened to anyone before? Case was just accepted at their offices 2 weeks ago. Is it possible to have been approved for the next stage? I'm not even sure what's going on and I don't want to call them in case it really is approved for the next stage. They still need to do their medicals then the visa process. Can anyone share their experience?

If your form I-130 were recently filed and received 2 weeks ago by USCIS, then the approval message was an error. There's no way in hell an I-130 petition can be approved after 2 weeks considering background and a host of other checks have to be done on both beneficiaries and petitioners. Average approval times are within 5 to 6 months after filing unless in special expedited cases which could be in half that timeframe.

Thank you. My parent's cases are two seperate I-130's. So they're not being processed "together" My dad's is the one that said approved, my mothers still says "case was received..." They're both being processed in California and from reading some other forums for CSC cases some were approved within 10-30 days.
