I just filled mine, ROC went through in 2013 and I've just been sitting on this for a REALLY long time. I decided that I would fill in the paperwork as soon as I felt comfortable pledging allegiance to the country again, which was confirmed last week... 😁

 

I cannot get over how much EASIER the online thing is! I would have like to see a SAVE button to reassure me I could save and come back to it, but I've started and stalled on the paper version so many times that I basically had 90% of the answers already written somewhere. The extra delay meant that my previous 5 years of addresses and work history is MUCH simpler lmao.

 

Now we wait!


Ready for my grand ol' timeline? Alrighty then!

10-05-10 - Married in California
06-13-11 - I-130 approved
10-13-11 - CASE COMPLETE!
12-02-11 - Interview - 221g due to a washed passport

I've spent so many years in the loving arms of the USCIS, but now it's time to fledge. So long, my friends, may all your journeys also end on the doorstep of whatever you're searching for.

Finally I submitted mind yesterday, however it shows  November 11. Quick  question, when  were  you able to see all the documents you submitted?

Mind  still showing the application was successfully submitted and it takes up to 72 hours for all the case information to show on your home page.

  • I submitted my application online on Tue Nov 10. The online process was far simpler than filling out on paper. However, I noticed several times that my attachments were NOT saved if I switched between sections. I hope people are careful to check that ALL of their attachments get included in the final snapshot before they hit Submit :)
  • I was able to see all my documents in my account in 24 hrs.
  • I also noticed that although I had my email and text notifications turned on, I did NOT get notified when USCIS updated records to indicate they had sent a receipt etc. I guess the notifications only work when there is a status update?

I'd love to hear from folks when they get their biometric appt notice and other correspondence, just to get a sense of wait periods and timelines. :) 

 

Good luck to all Nov 2020 filers!

Same happened to me, I had to attach all the documents all over again. I read somewhere on the forums if u hit the BACK button  all  attachments are gone. Best is to upload all files when ready to submit the application. On my account still shows will take up to 72 hours to show  all the case information  🤕
