  1. Hey red42, I would say, it'll take at least 3- 7 business days to receive a snail mail from NVC. Now, I'm not sure if your home country is included in a pivot status where everything can be done through online. This is the case where you will submit or download most of your stuff online (pay the fees, submit civil docs and other). Once you received an approval from USCIS, a case number will be provided to you, that itself will take 4-8 weeks to be made available to you. I know, WAITING is NOT fun! They will send the case number to you through EMAIL. With my case, once it reached at the NVC stage , communication with NVC will be converted through an email. I was given an instruction what to do next. The first thing you need to do is to pay the fees (AOS and IV) for both of your parents. Gather all the necessary documents while waiting such as your tax stuff (3 years tax returns, W2), civil documents such as your BC, MC (if you're married), your proof of citizenship, pictures of you with your parents, your parents MC, their BC's, their police clearances, proof of termination from previous marriages (if applicable), etc. You will also need to fill up those different forms such 1-864, 1864A (if filing tax with another person), DS-260, etc... With your dad's case, try calling them to find out if they've received it or not. Anyway, it's good to hear from you. I hope everything will go smoothly! Best of luck and Keep us updated!
  2. Hey there, Actually this is a case to case basis. Some will only take 1 day to have their CC and others would take weeks or months before they can have their cases completed, the same goes with getting their interview dates. One member from here I know it took them 2 months to get an interview from the time their case was completed. Just hang on there! Definitely, bring everything that will serve as an evidence of a bonafide relationship. Best of luck!
  3. Hello, You're almost there...but don't make an appointment with St. Luke's yet till you hear from NVC. Also you need to send copies at least 3 years of your tax returns to her, maybe a copy of your passport or birth certificate (as proof of your citizenship) and your proof of domicile in the US. Best of luck.
  4. thanks.....and you're welcome! yes indeed a big relief! Family reunion soon..so happy for you! ๐Ÿค—
  5. Congratulations!!! BTW, what country did the interview takes place?
  6. Just submitted all the necessary docs for my mom 2 days ago....Lots of required docs and hopefully everything goes well ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž. Good to hear from you..yay you're almost there!
  7. Hello Webtinka, Welcome to the group!๐Ÿ˜Š I hope everything goes smoothly with your application! Keep us updated! Take care, Dzyrhe
  8. WHAT'S UP December 2017 FILERS? How's everyone doing? ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘†
  9. Hey mommyd, Within those 7 months of waiting (time flies so fast- I just didn't realize it plus I work full time) I was able to gather docs from my mom's part such as police criminal record certificates (or police clearance) - My mom has lived in 3 different countries before for more than 6 months, so given that facts I'm required to provide the said docs. I gathered scan copy of my mom's passport biodata page, new copies of her birth certificate and marriage certificates. Now on my part, I also had to scan docs and made photocopies for my I-864 stuff such as the 3 -year (2015, 2016, 2017) tax transcripts and W-2's. Just in case it's time for you to submit those docs, there you have it ready! In each application or petition that we're doing , it can be stressful and overwhelming we just have to be prepared for it and be done with it!
  10. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ Hoping for a fast and smooth process. Paid both fees and still shows "in process", so there's nothing I can do right now until either fees shows " paid".
  11. Hey ipatientlywaiting, I'm not sure if you have read this one but this is what I found from the USCIS website, " You may pay the fee with a money order, personal check, or cashierโ€™s check. When filing at a USCIS Lockbox facility, you may also pay by credit card using Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transactions. If you pay by check, you must make your check payable to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Please note that service centers are not able to process credit card payments. With all the applications I did since AOS in 2010, I've been using money order from USPS to pay all the fees and never had an issue with it (but that just my own personal experience). I hope everything will work out and goes well with your application. Good luck!๐Ÿ™‚
  12. Hello mommyd, It looks like your docs/case is in order now, hopefully. When I sent my docs to USCIS Chicago Lockbox, I sent thru USPS using their priority mail and I never had an issue with it. I'm a December '17 filer -petitioning for my Mom and if you would take a look at my timeline below (through my signature), you probably can get some ideas on how long it will take to receive NOA1, NOA2 until NVC stage (bearing the case #) but then again , this is a case to case basis. Best of luck!
  13. Hey Lynni, Thanks for the updates ๐Ÿ™‚ It's good to hear from someone like you who is on the same boat like me....Finally I got the email yesterday and paid both AOS and IV fees today (8/24)..Hopefully it'll be a smooth process for all of us from here on forward (fingers crossed)...
  14. Hello...Any updates (interviews?) from anyone on this group yet? Mine is still at NVC....I called once and they told me to wait until I get an email from them. My petition has been approved since July 2nd but until now I still don't get an email from them.....I guess, it's time for me to call them back for follow up ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜•
