  1. Will the following be a different account than my current USCIS account? If so, can I open the account now while I wait? After USCIS approves your petition, they will transfer your case to the Department of State's National Visa Center (NVC) for pre-processing. The first step in this processing is the creation of your case in our system. Once this is complete, we will send you a Welcome Letter by e-mail or physical mail. With the information in this letter, you can log in to our Consular Electronic Application Center (CEAC) to check your status, receive messages, and manage your case.
  2. What can I be doing in the meantime to prepare for the second phase? Are there any documents that I could be gathering now?
  3. True. There is no clear timeline for any form/case so no point in even checking for updates daily. I thought maybe some progress had been made because the first months it just said "I-130 Submitted" then recently it change to Actively reviewing..."
  4. It took 8 months after they received the package for the status to change to "actively reviewing.."
  5. So they started actively reviewing your petition less than a month after you sent it in!?
  6. I-130 Petition: On the USCIS site it's been saying for the past 2.5 months that the case is being actively reviewed by USCIS. Is it normal for the review process to take this long. The first 8 months it said that the I-130 Petition has been submitted, but a few months ago I received an update saying that the case is being actively reviewed and that I don't have anything outstanding. Is it normal for the "Active Review" to take this long and how much longer can I expect to wait. Is there anything that I need to prepare in the meantime for the next phase?
  7. For example my uncle would be a great joint sponsor if he were living in the USA. He has a US bank account, good amount of liquid assets, and files his taxes every year. However, he isn't domiciled in the USA. Since he is living abroad does that mean he isn't a qualified candidate for a joint sponsor?
  8. Hi. You mentioned 10+ months before financials matter, but we were given Nebraska Service Center and the wait times are 4-7 months for I-130 approval so might it be sooner? Also, I have a US bank account, state driver's license, and I file my taxes every year.
  9. I am applying for my spouse whom I live with abroad. I am not currently domiciled in the US and do not work for a US company. Is it possible to have a sponsor or how about two sponsors? Do they need to be domiciled in the USA and have significant incomes/assets? Can I have a sponsor that doesn't have an income but has many assets? Regards
  10. When my I-130 has been approved then I assume I will receive some kind of notice. Upon receiving that notice do I need to take some kind of action or will I need to wait for them to send something to the NVC? If so, will the NVC contact me themselves? Regards
  11. Hi. I submitted my I-130 in December 2021. The receipt says Nebraska Svc Center. The current processing times are 4-7 months according to the websites. What will be the next step upon approval of the I-130? Is this when I will need a sponsor and will I need to fill out another form and mail it to the NVC? Your help is appreciated as I am trying to prepare for the next step. Kind Regards
  12. I see that your I-130 was approved 2 months after you sent it. However, by the time your spouse entered the USA it took about 2 years. I notice that there was a huge gap between the completed case and the interview. Can you help put things into perspective for me. As I am not sure what to make of the timeframes.
  13. so in total from the start of our I-130 submission to the completion of the interview we can be looking at around 24-36 months?
