My husband filed his I-130 application in 08/2018 and it was received at the Potomac office.  Back in Feb., 2019 the file was transferred to the National Benefit Center for "faster processing".  We are almost at the 1 year mark since the application was filed and still no NOA2 yet.  I was wondering if there is a way to turn in additional photos, joint accounts, airplanes tickets to show bona fide marriage evidence, etc?  In hopes that they will finally do a decision of the file.

 

Please let me know, I'm getting very anxious and loosing concentration at work because of it.

Have you tried contacting the USCIS to inquire on status? From what I’ve witnessed on strands in this group, Potomac timelines are supposed to be very quick. Being that you’re coming up on 1 year, I think you’re well within the timeline to be able to follow up. There’s also an option to make an electronic follow up which may be easier. Hold times for the call center are quite long. I don’t think you can send more info unless you receive a request for evidence.

I filed my first inquiry at the end of may and said i would get a response in 30 days.  The 30 days came by and nothing.  So I filed another inquiry since I couldn't get thru a live person when i called. And again they told me the same thing, that I will get a response in 30 more days.  I then asked how many inquiries do I have to make to finally get a response from someone.  Was told that I would have to file 3 and wait their 30 days until they can finally get a hold of someone and get an answers for me.

 

When you say an electronic follow up?  Where exactly can I do that?

Oh no, I think someone is not giving you the appropriate information. So if you make a USCIS account, you can send an email there through the system. Also try this inquiry form if you haven’t already: https://egov.uscis.gov/e-Request/Intro.do.

In your case, I think it wouldn’t hurt to reach out to your congressperson and see if they can advocate for you. I’ve seen some folks go that route. 

 

Also try signing up for one of these accounts for case status, may help: https://egov.uscis.gov/casestatus/landing.do

 

I would keep calling and following up maybe once every week though because it sounds very strange from what I’ve seen most people’s experiences with the I130. 

 

Best of of luck to you with your application!

Oh that link you gave me for the e-mail if where I send my inquiries to which they told me that I need to wait 30 days to get a response.  I have already contacted my congress and said to contact them if I dont have a response from them by the middle of August (SMH) and I have also created an account with USCIS.  Believe me.. I've done anything and everything that you can think of that is why now I want to see if I can send additional evidence to them so see if that will get the case moving forward.

Ahh I see. Perhaps you should inquire the call center if that’s an option, because I’ve only seen evidence sent/considered when there is a request for it (RFE). Have you considered filing an I129F for a K3 visa for your spouse? You may have a slight chance of getting that one faster or just getting your case looked at again.

I've also tried calling but i never get thru a live person.

 

I will discuss with him about filing an I-129F and see if he wants to go that route. 

 

Thanks sooo much for your input.

You’re welcome! One last thing about the call center; I got through last night after I pressed options as if I lost my case number. They connected me with someone after about 40 minutes of hold time and then just asked me my case number again, which I had. 

 

Best of of luck with everything!
