Hey guys! 😊

I tried to look for a topic for March 2019 filers but could not find one, so I thought might as well start! I am the beneficiary, and our petition was sent 3/5 and delivered 3/7. I would love to hear from other March filers ☺️

Hi, all! I just filed I-130 for my stepson in Mexico. I went through this process with my husband a few years ago, and he is currently in ROC stage. Interview wait times are HORRID for Juarez right now, so I am really hoping they speed up when it comes to be our turn in about a year's time.

 

Package received by USCIS: Thursday, March 7th, 2019.

Thanks for creating this thread! 

Our dates are almost identical (and we also used UPS)!  My husband's credit card was charged just now so that should be a sign of NOA1 coming soon :)  Good to have you!!

We just got the receipt number and our case will be processed in Texas. Now we will wait :)

Did you get your receipt number via text? I sent in the form and am hoping to hear back today or tomorrow. Did you file in Phoenix or Chicago?

Got it via e-mail! We filed in Chicago because we are filing from abroad :) Hopefully you'll hear back soon!

Oh, interesting! I wonder how we'll get ours?! I just saw that they cashed the check this morning so I'm hoping the case number arrives shortly :)  Did they withdraw from your account yet?

Yes, in that case, you should get it soon! In the e-mail, it says we will get the official receipt notice by mail in 7 to 10 days. We also noticed the withdrawal a bit before the e-mail came! So yes! I was hoping for Potomac Service Center seeing how fast they are processing petitions but I am happy we got the notice :) It must mean we did not make huge mistakes!

Yes, it completely depends on where you are filing from, unfortunately. I already know that I will be sent to Nebraska because that's where my husband's I-130 was processed from and where his ROC is being processed, too! I can't wait until they're both citizens and we're finished with all of this!
