I-130: Case at NVC

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My cousin had her CR-1 application approved in early November.

Case has now been sent to the NVC for the past 30+ days. She says the NVC hasn't told her anything yet and I have no idea what's supposed to happen with the CR-1.

 

Can someone knowledgeable (perhaps, @missileman) with the process briefly tell me what she should do next?

Is this like the K1 visa where you gotta contact NVC yourself for case numbers?

We know NVC ultimately gives the interview for her spouse date but we want to know what should be done in the interim.

 

Thanks!

It took our case a month to be transferred from USCIS to NVC.  Then, we received an email from NVC with our case number and invoice to pay 2 fees.....and an attached list of documents for NVC.

Unless the procedures have changed......our case went to NVC in late 2016.

I'm also still waiting to hear from NVC. The sites never updated to say "Your case has been sent to the Department of State", so for all I know, the approved petition is still sitting at TSC... Did you and your wife both receive emails from NVC or just one of you?
