I-130 Chicago Lockbox -> Delivered -> Payment -> e-Notification -> NOA1

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am currently living in Colombia with my Colombian spouse, and have filed the I-130 to the Chicago Lockbox. I am a little worried because it has ben received and the payment has been process, but no e-notification of application acceptance (G-1145) or NOA1  yet. This is my second time around doing this (with the same spouse 8 years apart) and know its a long process but remember almost immediately receiving an e-notification. Has anyone else experienced this delay in receiving an e-Notification?

 

Sent from Colombia: 10/05/2018

Delivered via DHL: 10/08/2018

Payment Processed via G-1450 (Debit Card): 10/11/2018

e-Notification: ???

NOA1: ???

 

Back story: My spouse and I have been married for 8 years now and have one 4 year-old. Life brought us back to Colombia for a little while while I finished graduate school, she filed an I-407 to abandon residency status in the US and get a tourist visa to travel while we lived here. We are now ready to move back soon and started the entire process over again.

Looks like I have received my NOA1 in the mail, for whatever reason USCIS decided not to accept my G-1145 for e-notification.
