Hello!

I'm curious about others who filed their I-130's in April. I sent my documents to the Chicago Lockbox and my case was routed to Nebraska. My case was officially accepted April 26 and I received the official e-mail and receipt number the 29th, however, I never received anything in the mail. My case status still just says officially received. What should I expect to happen next???

Thanks in advance!

Try to check the status of your case at least twice a week. it'll take upto 5mons to get approve. It's okay even you didn't get NOA1 for as long as you have the receipt number your fine.

I got mine approved for 1 month and 1day after uscis received my case.

I'm also an April filer, sent to the Chicago lockbox on 4/7 and assigned to NSC. They received it April 11th and I got an email and text but also received a letter in the mail about a week later. It was one page of exactly the same info in the email, so I agree, you're good as long as you have the receipt number!

Cessa, was your I-130 approved in one month?? Congrats!! Were you filing AOS?

Did you also call the service center, and what did you ask? I feel like it's just waiting and assuming they are working on it, but let us know if you have any tips! ;)

Yes, I was surprised and blessed they approve it so fast. I didn't actually call Nebraska service center, I just keep on checking my case status online. I'm done with my AOS and IV. Now, I'm waiting for cc and interview date. Hope I'll get schedule soon.

Tip: once your case approved, call NVC at least twice a week to get case number so you could start even without the actual approve letter. ??

God bless us all?

Hi, I know this post was from a month ago, but just in case, if you didn't put U.S address you're never going to get anything in Costa Rica or any other country abroad.This happened to me thankfully I was able to catch on time, I was never told that it had to be a U.S address and not my actual address abroad, so if by any chance you put an address abroad, correct it by calling USCIS.
