  1. I couldn’t find a thread for October 2022 I-130 filers here is my timeline so far Filed: Oct 3, 2022 NOA1: Oct 6, 2022. Guys let's use this post to keep track of our cases. Good luck everyone.
  2. Hi, created this topic coz i havent seen any similar to the date that i filed for my parents’ petition. I-130 submitted online on June 19, 2021.
  3. All right friends, let's get this thread started so we can stay in touch about progress as it comes. I'm a USC petitioner, living with my husband (New Zealand/British citizen) in Ireland. Here's what's happened with my case so far: 1/6/2023: Filed I-130 online. Got NOA1 and active review right away. NOA1 was from Nebraska. 1/7/2023: Got one of those generic "we have taken action on your case" emails. No change in the online tool, so I asked Emma to see if my case had been transferred. Agent said it was in Texas. 1/10/2023: Another of the same email. Asked Emma again out of curiosity. Case still in Texas, so perhaps the action taken was to assign it to an officer 🤷‍♀️ I'm sure we are many months out from any action, but my engineer brain wants to understand how the operations of all this works. It's awful but sort of fascinating. Best of luck to you all.
  4. Hi, I am a US citizen and I filed I130 for my parents in July 1st, 2022. The "Estimated time until case decision" gone from 4 weeks left to, 3 weeks, 2 weeks, 1 week and now saying "Your case is taking longer than expected to process. You do not need to take any action at this time.". It has been saying this for 3 weeks now.
  5. Hello All, Please gather here if you have been DQ from NVC and awaiting Interview date at US Embassy Kuwait. If there are any Whatsapp, Telegram, FB Groups please share that information here. Share your DQ and visa class information. DQ Date: Jan 17 2023 Visa Class: IR/CR1
  6. Hello, Wanted to start a topic for June filers to follow and track Petition approval as they start coming in. Submitted I-130 petition for both parents online and they show submitted as of June 28, 2022. Currently application are showing processing times of 5 and 8 months.
  7. Hi everyone! I have just filed for my mom on 04/04/2022. Let the journey begin.
  8. Hi everyone, I just received a message from NVC stating that my husband's AU Police Check is incorrect, and needs to be from a valid authority. To my knowledge the AFP National Police Check is the only one. Anyone having the same issue and was able to resolve it? Thank you! Australian Police Check.pdf
  9. Hi, I have made I-130 applications for my husband and children, all still pending. I had to get permission from the family court in the UK to remove my eldest daughter from the jurisdiction. We were granted permission, based on our proposed plan, including timeframe. The applications are taking longer than anticipated to process and I am now concerned that we will not be able to meet our proposed timeframe. One possible outcome if this were to happen is that the child’s father takes us back to court to revoke the original order. Would needing to meet a court order’s timeframe be sufficient grounds for requesting and expedition of all of the I-130 applications? Thank for the help.
  10. Hi, I am trying to request that my husband and children’s I-130 applications are expedited but am struggling to get the request through to the right people. I have called the USCIS a number of times, they have informed me that the request has to be dealt with a tier two agent. As I am outside the US and do not have a US address or phone number they have to email me to request further information on my expedite request. The issue is marked as urgent and I have been told they will contact me in 72hours. I have been through this stage three times and each time I receive an email from a no response email address stating that the application is within the processing time but nothing about expediting. The last time I called an agent suggested that I mailed the request, with all the information and supporting documents directly to the service centres dealing with the applications. I did this, sent them Royal Mail tracked and signed, (at great expense) so I know that the letters were delivered five days ago but still there is no change on my online account to show that an expedite request is being considered. Anyone have any advice on what to do to get this request in front of the right people, I have been trying for over a month? Thank you very much for your help.
  11. I am currently filling up the I-130a form . I am a student , and have been doing my bachelor's degree and now my Master's. I don't have an employment history yet other than one internship I did . Should I put that I am a student in the employment area? This is what they said to do " Provide your employment history for the last five years, whether inside or outside the United States. Provide your current employment first. If you are currently unemployed, type or print "Unemployed" in Item Number 1. below. If you need extra space to complete this section, use the space provided in Part 7. Additional Information." It doesn't mention studies anywhere in there. I would really appreciate your help with this . Thank you so much
  12. I don't think a thread for the May 2022 I-130 filers has been started so I wanted to take the initiative and be able to talk to people in the same boat as me! Feel free to remove if there is already a thread for this! My current timeline: Date Filed: May 9th, 2022 NOA1: May 13th, 2022 Good luck to all of you
  13. Submitted on January 20, 2022 Immediately went into 'Case Is Being Actively Reviewed By USCIS' Texas Service Center
  14. Good afternoon everyone, I recently submitted an I-130 via mail on Dec 2022 for my wife who is living overseas . I recently moved on 17 Jan 2023 . Do I need to update my address as the petitioner ? I tried calling the USCIS number and they provided me with a link. I tried connecting my case online using the receipt number but then it asks me for online access code which I do not have . Since I sent it via mail , will I still receive an online access code ? What should I do in the mean time since USCIS wants you to update your address within 10 days ? Thank you for you time .
  15. My initial email was sent on June 2, 2022 and answered the same day by the doctor himself. We exchanged several emails and set the appointment for June 27th. He inspected my wife and daughter's vaccine records via email and recommended certain vaccines that require time between doses. He gave the remaining vaccines at the appointment. He suggested I plan to have them remain in Vilnius until July 1 in the event of a reaction to the vaccines. Medical was submitted electronically to Frankfurt on June 29th. The appointment times for a Frankfurt medical were several months out at this time so Vilnius was a great option. He also did not require a translator at the exam and only needed legible vaccine records.
  16. My husband came to the US after I petition him k1 visa year 2017 we got married the same year and I didn’t file I-130/aos right away and now we’re ready will it affect that it took us this long to AOS? I just started working will it be ok to just send my paystubs since I wasn’t able to file last years tax because we didn’t have income? Me and my two son was on calworks and calfresh during those year will it affect if we file our aos now? Should we just wait until next year so that i have tax returns to show?
  17. Well I hate to have to come here and say this, but after 8 months of marriage my wife and I are going to get divorced. Were going to do it here in Mexico then I'm going to take off once its finalized. Her I-130 is still in process. If it gets approved during the divorce process and I ignore the RFE's I assume nothing will move forward correct? If we don't go to the interview, if I dont sign the Affidavit of Support, if we don't go to medical I assume nothing will move forward? Therefore I don't have much to worry about in that regard? Should I write to USCIS requesting a withdrawal or something even though were not divorced yet? She has not been handling this process at all so she wouldn't be able to try to move anything forward anyway. Any advice is appreciated. Best
  18. Hi all, I have applied for visas for my parents. However, now that the cases have been sent to the National Visa Center (NVC), they have assigned one of the cases to Abu Dhabi and the other to Yerevan. Unfortunately, there is no US embassy where my parents reside, and NVC no longer accepts phone calls. Although I have already sent them an email, I have not yet received a response. Has anyone else had a similar experience? I would like to know if it is possible to change the location for one of the cases so that my parents can travel together. I have not paid the fees or filled out the DS-260 form yet.
  19. Re: CR1 Visa Can the Petitioner of the I-130 submit other forms concurrently? Such as I-864? If so, can someone beak down what forms can be added besides the I-130A? Also, do I have to date the I-130A or leave the date blank along with blank signature? Thanks!

  22. Hi guys please anyone can help me , the part of evidence documents asking for : Evidence of the end of your spouse's prior marriage(s) My spouse has never been divorced , i did uploaded my divorce deecre , what should we do !
  23. So my brother's son was born in the US but left at a really early age. Now my brother wants to come here with him now that he is over 21 and we both thought that he could petition for him while his son, the US citizen was abroad. On the I-130 it asked for an address in the US, which I believe should have been his current address but we entered mine (US based) since we thought it was something that was needed for communications to be sent. Now the case has been sent to the NVC (approved) but thankfully we caught it early. Is he out of luck? Does he son needs to enter the US first and start all over?
  24. Hello folks, This has probably been asked a lot of times so if I am posting in a wrong place, please do let me know! My husband just got DQ'ed last May 26th and we are quite confused on a few things. I know IL will take some time especially since January DQs haven't even gotten theirs, but if someone can answer, that would be very appreciated! 1. For interview, I've seen people say embassy will provide the date, and some booked their own appointments. Which one is it? Also if it's the latter, how do you know if you are allowed to book one already? 2. To book the appointment, am I allowed to create an account on the US traveldocs even if my case is still at NVC (as per CEAC)? 3. Are tax return transcripts enough proof of requirements that my husband can bring to his interview? 4. Upon arriving in the US, will he automatically get SSN or do we have to apply for it? 5. does anybody know any Group chat we can possibly join to get updates for manila embassy interviews? Thank you so much! 🙏
  25. Hi! I am writing this with a lot of anxiety and stress as my husband and I we are in NVC stage and I as the beneficiary I have a criminal record of minor theft, this was 7 years ago. I was a first offender and had clean record. This is the only offense committed and I had done restitution during my court hearing & attended all my hearings until the verdict was announced. I have not committed any other crime ever since then and have been clean. I was given a 5 years probation in 2017 and it has completed. I will be going to get my police clearance done soon, i am not sure if it’ll show on the clearance or not but I choose not to lie. What I would like to know is that if this will affect our NVC stage from being DQ’d or approved. Your advice and feedback will truly calm my nerves down. Thank you in advance.
