Parents I-130 Not Approved Together

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I sent my parents I-130 on Aug 30, 2019. Their priority date is Sept 4, 2019. I received both of their Receipt Notice at the same day a week and half after I sent the papers. I received an Approval Email for my father on Apr 29, 2020, 2 days after I received an NVC email with his NVC Case Number. I'm still waiting for my mother's decision. Don't they process papers together? I sent their papers at the same time, in the same envelope, filled out the part in form that it's together with another form with their names on it. If they don't process it together, why would they separate it so far from each other, I can understand if its just a few days delay on my mother's, but its almost a week and its been very frustrating because I have to delay my father's NVC papers so I can file them both with my mom. I tried reaching out to USCIS about my mother's papers and they keep giving a general answer that I already know from the website and not anything case-specific. Anyone there experienced the same issue? What happened to you guys' experience? 

 

On the other hand, after receiving the Approval Notice and NVC Case Number. I read that I should make a NVC account. Do I have to make my parents send an email for DS-260 to appoint me as their Agent of Choice to receive notices?

 

The Steps that I understood that I should do is:

1. Send DS-260 email

2. Make NVC account and pay fees (Print barcodes for AOS Packet)

3. Gather Docs and send to NVC:

  • Applicant and petitioner's birth certificate
  • Applicant and petitioner's marriage certificate
  • Applicant's passport bio
  • Applicant's police clearance and NBI (Philippines)

4. After completion, will receive email for notification and Medical and Interview will be scheduled

5. Send Affidavit of Support - What are the requirements for this?

Petitions are adjudicated by humans. Humans move at different speeds from one another. It’s very reasonable that two petitions sent at the same time will be reviewed at different times there is no need to worry

Will you be submitting info / docs to NVC right away for your father  or  otherwise wait for your mother's approval and then submit info / docs for both together ?  How long one can wait ?

I have the same situation. Mom got approved first then I am waiting for my dad. I will delay my mom's so that I can process them together when my dad gets an approval. Or else, one will be left behind..


God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and it takes a lot of faith but it's worth the wait. ❤️

Petitions are not processed together.   You paid 2 separate fees for the I-130.  This happens all the time in cr1/cr2 ir1/ir2 family cases.  It is best to ask NVC to join them and if they get separated again the consulate can do it.

I put their business name since my parents has one. I indicated there that they're business owners.

Do you think it's better to wait for the other approval before I proceed to my mom's NVC processing?

I'd wait.   It isn't like they are going to send them to to consulate soon and there is still an executive order barring parents.

 

Contact them in a few weeks if there isn't any movement.
