I thought I would share this in case it happens to anyone.... My wife's petition was approved on 6/14/19 and received  I797 approval notice. The letter stated petition was sent to NVC for processing. After about 4 weeks, I contacted NVC and I was told they hadn't received the petition and it could take up to 8 weeks. 8 weeks past and they never got the petition. It turned out USCIS "FORGOT" to sent the petition. NVC contacted USCIS and they finally mailed the petition on 8/22. Now I am in queue but lost 9 weeks for nothing.


Make sure you contact USCIS 2 - 3 Weeks after approved to make sure your petition is send to NVC. You may even ask for the batch # as they mail them in batches.


I thought my frustration with USCIS (Nebraska) ended when they approved our petition 12 months after we filed. I was wrong.


Just my 2 cents.....

You didn't really lose 9 weeks. It takes at least 4 weeks, almost without exception, for the transfer to occur, so you actually lost 5 weeks. But your point is a good one. After 4 weeks people should call NVC to ensure that they received the case transfer from USCIS.


Sorry you experienced the delay. Good luck on the rest of your journey.
