Recommended Posts

Hi to everyone... this is my first post here...

I can't believe this:

June 08, 2007 sent our 129F to NSC

June 11, 2007 NSC received it

Between June 12 to 20 our package was sent to CSC

June 21, 2007 CSC received it

June 25, 2007 check cashed

.

.

.

TODAY is July 30 and we're still waiting our NOA1... AFTER 60 days!!

My boyfriend called to them and they just said they had a problem sending our NOA1, said to continue to wait and check our status in USCIS website we will receive our NOA1 soon.

Someone else are like us?? :(

Hey guys

i am asuming you had all the required papers

i was using Vermont Center and got NOA1 within 2 weeks.

i would give them a call and ask them about the status of your case.

you can also register on www.uscis.gov for email updates.

good luck, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

here is direct link to case status online:

There was a computer glitch for the printing of notifications in May and June of this year. Pretty sure there is an article on the USCIS website that talks about this. It won't slow or delay your processing. I sent my I129F in July and got NOA 1 in about 14 days, however your cases should be processed long before mine is looked at. They should be processing in the order the petitions are received.

Hi Again!

Can you see your NOA 1 in USCIS website? We created our account in "Case Status Online" and just have the follow in our case:

Current Status: Case received and pending.

How you know you have a NOA 1?

Thanks a lot!!

Thanks a lot!!

When you click on your case number on ths USCIS website it should bring up a page that says something like:-

On May 21, 2007, we received this I129F PETITION FOR FIANCE(E), and mailed you a notice describing how we will process your case.

The notice above was the NOA1 that we never received.

Hi!!

Your check was cashed on June 25th...have you checked with your bank to see the back of the check? You can get your case number from there. That is all you need!! So, you really have only been waiting for a little over a month since they received it and cashed your check? Right? IF you created your case status online, you must have your case number already?

I am a little confused with your post...are you simply looking for the NOA-1 "paper?" As long as they received your case and it is pending, the actual physical presence of the "paper" NOA-1 (I-797C) isn't that important for the moment. Yeah...it is nice to have but...what will you do with it when it comes?

Mine says, "The above application has been received. It usually takes 60 to 180 days from the date of this receipt to process this type of case. Please notify us immediately if any of the above information is incorrect. We will send you a written notice as soon as we make a decision on this application."

The "written notice" they are referring to is your NOA-2.

I hope this answered your question. :unsure:

Regards,

Craig

hi Craig Karina

i read that you said that :

""the actual physical presence of the "paper" NOA-1 (I-797C) isn't that important for the moment. Yeah...it is nice to have but...what will you do with it when it comes?""

my case resieved by uscis in 11 june and iam still waiting for my NOA-1 and i think this form ( i-797c ) i need to get it as a proove that you already filed the i-130 so you can use it to file the i-129f.i know that you can file the i-129f by using a copy of your statut online and a copy of the check cashed but i read in some topics that for the ppl who filed the i-130 before paying the old fee shouldn't pay anything for the i-129f after 30 jully and others said that you can pay the old fee for it 170$ so nothing sure about this point and there a member here said that he got his NOA-1 and the uscis asked him in it to send the i-129f without fee iam really confused about this point .

i have no other choice just to wait for this I-797c .

untill then can you or any one clear things for me plz

Ahhhhh, I see....

Your timeline does not indicate that you are married. (And, I did not bother to check it the first time I read your post.) Our NOA-1 "paper" came just a few days after our check was cashed. Have you moved? Still, I do not think this is a "mandatory" thing that you must have to send in your I-129f package. A simple "cover letter" stating that "My case number is WACXXXXXXXXXXX and I have not received our NOA-1/I-797C"...will get you on the right track.

Being that it has taken this long, the paper may be lost in the mail...doesn't happen often, but does happen. Perhaps a call to them asking for another one to be sent? I really do not know what else to tell you! I believe that "action is better than inaction" and IF you just sit around waiting...you may be waiting for a long time. And, IF you are like me...I want my spouse with me....Hmmmmm, yesterday? :lol:

Regards,

Craig (Karina does not respond to any postings...but thank you for addressing your post to both of us.)

Sorry booboo2...

I thought I was replying to the original poster of the thread. It was pretty confusing...she was asking about the NOA-1 for her I-129f...and there really is no reason for having it other than to have a piece of paper. She has the case number and is simply in "waiting mode" like the rest of us. I was having difficulty figuring out what she was going to do with this NOA-1 for her I-129f???

For the "married" posters on VJ, going the K-3 route...the I-130 is filed first. Then, when your NOA-1 is received, you attach it to your I-129f packet and send to the appropriate service center. Do what you want...but I stand by my original statement: "Action is better than inaction." :yes:

Regards,

Craig

i read in some topics that for the ppl who filed the i-130 before paying the old fee shouldn't pay anything for the i-129f after 30 jully and others said that you can pay the old fee for it 170$ so nothing sure about this point and there a member here said that he got his NOA-1 and the uscis asked him in it to send the i-129f without fee iam really confused about this point .

i have no other choice just to wait for this I-797c .

untill then can you or any one clear things for me plz

booboo2:

1) NOA-1 and I-797c are one and the same piece of paper.

2) Don't believe everything you read. If you paid $190 with your I-130 you need to pay the appropriate filing fee with your I-129f papers.

3) What? USCIS said to send the I-129f in "without fee". I think a "sure fire way" to get your papers returned is to send them in without the appropriate fee attached. Go ahead :no: and try it if you want...but, don't be surprised!!!!

Does this clarify anything for you?

Regards,

Craig

PS By the way...IF you put some punctuation in your postings, they are much easier to read.

Hola Lucci,

Hi and welcome to VisaJourney!! Many people are willing to help you and your boyfriend with this process. We are all in similar positions and will offer opinions. :yes:

So...your question is just to find out if there are some others who have not received the "paper" NOA-1? I think you can se that there are a few. Is there a specific reason you are concerned about this? At this point, you are just in "waiting mode" just like many of us in the Visa Journey. I suggest you call them again and ask when to expect your NOA-1/I-797? Your boyfriend called...but when did he call? Dates are very important here on VJ. :yes:

Also, the fact that you mailed your I-129f papers on June 8th is not the starting date of your petition process. The "June 25th" date is when your check was cashed and case number assigned. You should base your future predictions on this date. June 25 to July 30 = 35 days...not 60.

Regards,

Craig
