I-824, Application For Action on an Approved Application

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Anyone going through/ recently gone through the i-824 process? My husband & I may have to file this form after all and I wondered what the wait time was.

USCIS site says 4.5-11.5 months which is a huge variance, so I wanted to hear from people who have just filed this or are still waiting to hear back with regards to their i-824 so I have some idea of how long we can expect to wait. 

 

TIA!

I'm  confused why you think you need to file this?  The uscis has recently approved the petition and it is enroute to the department of state.  Tbe uscis had completed its work.

My husband (the petitioner) put that we were filing for AOS by mistake. I've never lived in the US and we've always had every intention of applying for a visa via NVC but he must have got confused after staring at forms for so long. So when we got our NOA2, it said I have to fill out i824 in order for the application to go to NVC. My husband spoke to a T2 at USCIS recently who said they would request for our service centre to send a new NOA2 stating I'm outside the US and would get them to send it to NVC ASAP, but we've also been told by other USCIS officers that they can't do that so I'm very wary and wanted to know what kind of wait time we'd be in for should we have to fill this form out in the end.

Ah, that will do it.

How the wait times work is the first number is how long to process 50% of the applications, then the second number is for 93%  of the applications for whatever timeline you are checking. That is why you see such a gap in the numbers. Usually look for something in the middle of the range is about right.

Example Time Range

We now show case processing times as a range. The first number is the time it takes to complete 50% of cases (the median). The second number is the time it takes to complete 93% of cases.

 

 

Found it, I can't believe I remembered that, but lots of free time to poke around the USCIS website.

Do you have a link for this please? When I look on https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/ it says 4.5-11.5 months for all service centers and didn't include the info about percentages that you put in above, so yours definitely seems more useful.

Here's the link, I'm pretty sure the percentages apply across the board per say. But read it and you will know what I know.
