Still haven't received USCIS receipt notice for I-485

Hey I've searched for this on the forums and found a few threads but mostly were before and during the COVID-19 pandemic's peak. I was wondering if there are currently still significant delays going on?

 

I submitted my whole packet on April 5th, and was received by their facility on the 6th. It's the 16th now with no email/text yet. Is anyone else experiencing these same delays?

 

I'm mainly comparing it to my initial submission for the I-129F of which I received an SMS of receipt notice within 5 days of them receiving the package. 

 

Thanks!

The world is a different place, don't you think?  You cannot compare to pre pandemic

I sent mine April 6th and Received April 7th. 

We are monitoring for the cheque to be cashed but we are still in a pandemic and delays are still substantial. 

I'm not expecting anything until next month (at the earliest). 

 

From what I have seen and what others have mentioned on the thread 4-6 weeks +.

Thank you all for the advice! 

 

As a follow up, if I have not received the NOA but already sent my application to adjust status, can my fiance and I travel within the US? We'd like to fly to Texas for a short trip. 

 

Her fiance visa expired on 4/4/21. They received my application 4/6 (and obviously we married in Feb 2021).

Hello all, 

 

As an update. I still have not received my NOA-1. Nothing charged to my credit card either.

 

Thankfully, I sent an email to the lockbox facility on April 16th, (they received my package on April 6th), and their automated reply stated they'd get back to me within 30 business days, which will be by the end of this month. 

 

The Emma chatbox says it should take 30 days to get an NOA-1, (it's been 7 weeks), but it also says to forgive them for delays due to COVID. So I can only imagine it's being delayed due to COVID. 

 

Is there anything else I should be doing or checking to make sure everything's OK? I'll be satisfied once I get a case number so at least the application isn't in limbo and I can track the case status on USCIS. Even Emma can't help me without a case number. 

 

Thanks!

Relax, everyone is telling you it can take anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks, so it'll happen. Remember the rules of the game

Thanks Carlos.

 

Is it a problem if I submitted the credit card authorization form under my name as the Applicant/Petitioner and my name as well under the Credit Cardholder's Name? Even though the I-485 and all forms were filed for my wife under her name as the applicant.

 

I hope it wouldn't be an issue, because I am the petitioner of her original K1, but she is adjusting status now that she's my wife.

They don't care as long as they get the money.

Hi all,

 

Unfortunately, our I-485 (and the rest of its contents) were rejected. It says that it's because my "priority date could not be established". They are requesting one of the following documents:

 

1) Original I-130 if filing concurrently

2) Original I-140 if filing concurrently

3) Original I-360 if filing concurrently

4) Copy of form I-797 (NOA) If I-130, I-140, I-360, or I-526 petition has already been filed/approved

5) Other evidence that an immigration visa petition has been filed/approved on your behalf.

 

I submitted the I-797 for NOA2 for my wife's K1 visa stating that "the above petition has been approved", along w/ the rest of the documents. I believe what I should have sent as well was a copy of the original I-129F petition. Do you guys agree?

 

For point #5, is the I-129F that provided the K1 visa considered an "immigration visa petition"? So will providing the I-129F petition solve this problem?

 

I thought the I-797 stating that my original I-129F was approved was adequate to serve this purpose, no? Don't they have this petition on file already?

 

 

Lastly, was I supposed to file an I-130 because I filed 2 days late after the 90 day K1 visa period expired? We got married within the 90 days but we filed 2 days after the 90 days expired because we were waiting on a legal name change process.

 

This is such a bummer.
