  1. Have you called? Two weeks after NOA1 I started calling to get my case number and proceeded to the next steps. When the NVC gives you your case number, you can plug it into the DOS status update site to see what it says.
  2. I don't remember a package, I just communicated through email with them. Others may be able to help you with the email address! That's a lengthy wait time! Are all interviews that far out there?
  3. First of all, congratulations!!! Secondly, after mine was approved, I contacted the consulate to let them know and to see if they had received the approval. It took two months for us, USCIS continued to say they sent out, the consulate continued to say it hadn't been received. It was stressful but I'm so thankful for the approval!
  4. When you call USCIS, have you only spoken to a customer service representative? If you haven't already, get transferred to Tier 2, which are immigration officers. They can issue a service request. You can also do this yourself online but they may be able to give you more info on the spot.
  5. Just reply and tell them that there's never been any other passports issued other than the one already in their possession.
  6. Contact your state senator to inquire about your case. For me, my senator's had a constituent services page where I could fill out a request for them to contact on my behalf. You could also call the senator's office to ask for assistance and allow them to direct you as to their proper procedures.
  7. You can call and speak with a tier 2 officer, have the applicant on a three way call and they'll give the info needed. When you ask to speak with tier 2, you'll go in a waiting queue and the system will call you back when an officer is available. You can then ask if you can 3 way call the applicant. I've done it countless times when I expedited my I-601.
  8. When we petitioned the first time in 2015, we disclosed some previous material misrepresentation on the petition. When our interview finally came in June of 2016, they initially approved him. A few days later he received a call to come back in for follow-up questions and they denied him but gave the option to file the I-601 waiver. We filed that and were approved. Normally they just ask for the passport to issue the visa if it has been less than a year, but they called him back in for another interview after he did a second medical exam. When he went for the interview in April 2017, they denied him even though we had an approved waiver for the misrepresentation. They said our petition was expired and they weren't convinced we had a bonafide relationship because of the misrepresentation- although the misrepresentation was covered by the waiver. We petitioned again in April of 2017 and had an interview in March of 2018. He was put into AP and asked for more documents to prove his identity. We turned it in a few days later and I followed-up almost every week via email and also had my senator reach out frequently. Thankfully, my senator had been working through the case with us since our first petition because in 2015 there was a huge backlog and petitions were taking almost a year to approve. We were in AP from the beginning of March until the beginning of May before we were approved. OP, AP does not mean that all hope is lost. I just saw a fellow user on here that was placed in AP after approval and was just emailed to submit his passport so they can issue the visa. He was in AP for a month or so. AP does not have a time frame but my suggestion would be to ask your husband specific questions like dwheels had suggested. Specifically ask him if he has ever been to the embassy before you met, has he ever given false information, does he any children, any prior marriages, etc. Talk about the interview and the exact questions he was asked, did they question about any point specifically. Then look at your case and the red flags you might have. Keep the faith, study yourselves well and see if there's anything you could think might be the issue. Contact your senator and have them inquire about the AP. Usually the senator's have places on their websites to fill out forms for agency assistance- it might be under "constituent services" or something of the like.
  9. Please read my profile, it has my full timeline. We went through a lot with the consulate in Lagos. They initially approved my fiance and then called him back a few days later to interview him again. He ended up being denied after the initial approval due to misrepresentation that we disclosed with our petition. I agree with dwheels- ask a lot of questions to find out what the concern may be!
  10. I felt them blank on my I-129f and never got an RFE for it. OP, best of luck to you. I hope they find error in USCIS and you're able to move forward.
  11. Very good point. I-130 instructions say to write n/a if something does not apply. On the top of page 4 of the form instructions: 3. Answer all questions fully and accurately. If a question does not apply to you (for example, if you have never been married and the question asks, “Provide the name of your current spouse”), type or print “N/A,” unless otherwise directed. If your answer to a question which requires a numeric response is zero or none (for example, “How many children do you have” or “How many times have you departed the United States”), type or print “None,” unless otherwise directed.
  12. Does the update screen still say "immigrant visa"? Has the case creation date changed? When the update screen changes to "non-immigrant" from "immigrant" and the case creation date changes, that means your visa is on its way. If it still says "immigrant" and the case creation date did not change, they may just be working in your case file.
  13. I didn't have to turn anything in for my AOS in respects to my medical. Your medical results from your medical in your country should have already been sent over when you entered the US.
  14. It doesn't say no holes on the sides, it says no notebooks that can't be easily broken down. They say this because they just throw away any notebook provided and if things are (for example: in sheet protectors), it is very time consuming for them to disassemble your package to place it in their required folder. OP- use what you have but maybe use a binder clip to hold it together. I used tab dividers to divide the sections, then you can bind them with the clip.
