Hi Everyone! Our petition was sent to the NVC on May 1st, 2015. Being as it is the 18th and I have not received a letter should I call to find out if I have case number assigned yet so my Fiancee can begin getting things scheduled?

Thanks!

I don't think NVC are supposed to send you a letter (or they do but that usually takes about a month to process, I heard of people receiving that letter after already passing the interview!). Basically at this point as far as I can tell if you don't reach out to them, the next you hear from them is when the case reaches the embassy and the embassy sends a package to your fiance.

Most of us don't like this big black hole of waiting :) though so people call, check and ask for a case number (which typically is assigned within two weeks). Then once you have the case number, you can use it online to further track the status of your case on its way to embassy. Since it's been so long for you, you may already have a case number assigned to you! But you have to call and ask them for it, they don't send it to you for some reason. So yeah, I'd give them a call.

I called the NVC on the 4th of May and that is when they had issued me a case number. Yesterday when I got home I got a letter from the NVC saying that the case has been sent to the embassy. You will get one too don't worry. I got mine even though they got my address wrong.

Did the letter say which Embassy it went to? Or was it just saying it was sent to the embassy.

Yes, the letter will say which embassy it has been sent to.

Ok thank you, getting a little worried because they said they shipped it out yesterday and when I go on DHL to track it I am getting results for everyother embassy but the one my fiancé is at.

Your timeline says the consulate got your papers though. What are you worried about? Best way to verify is to call the embassy and ask if the papers are there.
