I think my AOS fee bill is lost in the mail...

it has been 2 weeks of waiting since it was generated...

I am thinking of informing NVC about it and ask them what to do...

Anyone who has experienced this?what does NVC usually ask u to do if something (in this case, AOS fee bill) got lost in the mail? Does NVC allow.in this case, sending in the fee without the original letter with the barcode? (i am not using any short cuts, by choice)

I am doing an I-130 for my wife and two sons. About a week and a half after the fee bills were mailed I got one son's fee bill. The next day I got the one for my wife. Next day nothing. After a week of not getting the third fee bill I called the NVC and waited for a live person.

The guy was nice enough and told me to allow two to four weeks for it to arrive. I told him nicely that the post office really does not take that long any more (I do a lot of mail order) and something was wrong. He reads me the standard line again about 2-4 weeks before calling it lost.

I politely kept him on the phone ligthly whining and being persistant about something being wrong still. He is just stringing me along while kind of numbly looking at my case on the computer. Suddenly he asks me why dont I ask the lawyer what's up instead of bugging him. I dont have a lawyer I say. He is yes you do and I am no I dont.

Turns out that NVC somehow attached some random lawyers name to one of my son's paperwork. NVC dude was nice enough to give me enough info to be able to locate the law firm on google. He told me to send an e-mail to nvcinquiry@state.gv to remove the lawyer's name.

I contacted the lawyer and sure enough they had a strange AOS fee bill they were not sure what to do with. They are mailing it to me now. In the meantime I made a copy of the brother's fee bill and the Choice Of Agent form incase this dont show up. I used the bar code generator from Jame's Shortcuts and a little Photoshop and it looks decent. I will give the real one till Tuesday to show up and if not I'll send in the home made one with mom's and his brother's.

Bottom line, yes call NVC, and if you get the standard 2-4 weeks line ask them to check where it got mailed to :-)
