Hello everyone,

I have filed I-130 for my husband and my step daughter in 2013. It was approved in U.S.A however , returned to USCIS under 221g February 20, 2015. Since then I have not received any notice other than a transfer notice in November 5th 2015 that it was transferred to another USCIS center to expedite the processing. I have called and called, all what I being told was to give 180 days upon 180 day and 60 days upon 60 days. Still no NOIR or anything. I have involved my congress man and senator since the beginning of the returned visa . Still no progress. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to expedite this or do I need to wait? If ye, how long do I need to wait?

Expedite no. Your only thing left to do is contact the Ombudsman. The interview was February 2015. Then this month or next you should be hearing from USCIS. its taking about 18 months from interview. I know a few people denied January 2015 and they just got their NOIR letters in August. Have to just hang in there .

The process of a returned CR/IR visa can take 12-18 months.

In some cases a petition is re affirmed without a NOID/NOIR and send back to the embassy.

You probably are not asking the right questions of your senator's aid/liaison.

Be very specific in what you want them to find out, which should be:

1. Where exactly is your case now

2. Why has the NOID/NOIR not been send.

Contact the Ombudsman also. https://www.dhs.gov/case-assistance

That's it, don't overwhelm the senator's aid and expect them to solve the problem trying to expedite your case.
Expedite for what reason ?

I would probably try the CIS Ombudsman next; it's the only real choice you have remaining.

I would try your Senator again. With the election looming, and you now knowing what exact questions to ask, they may be more helpful.

Thank you , One of the detail I forget to mention was that I also contacted CIS Ombus but I have not heard from them since I was toldto give them 60days which is been more than 60 day. maybe I need to contact them again to find out where things are. Thank you!

Sounds like they may have sent you one and since they did not get a response they closed it. It usually takes for 12 - 18 months to get your NOIR. Was this the first time you called to check on it? You might want to call your senators office to see what they can find out for you too.
