Timeframe before approved i130 is cancelled

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, my wife's i130 was approved on July 24 2018, I haven't acted upon it yet. After reconciling with my wife I want to continue the process. How long do I have to pay the AOS and Visa fees before it is canceled.?

Did you officially withdraw anything?  Have you gotten any warnings from NVC about suspension or expiration?   I think it is 1 year without contacting NVC will result in expiration.

Your petition was approved almost a year ago?   Did you hear from NVC regarding AOS and visa fee payment?   The petition from USCIS is only valid for 4 months usually unless NVC extends it for up to a year like the embassy does, you may have to complete a new petition.   I would highly suggest you contact NVC to get the facts.  

 

Immigrant visa:  1-603-334-0700 Operator assistance is available Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 12:00 AM (Eastern Time) . For the shortest wait time, begin calling for the NVC Agent at 7:05 am EST M-F.

I did not withdraw the petition. I just did not act on it.

all you need to do is log into CEAC with the case and invoice number provided in the email and continue the process, no need to contact NVC.
