  1. Hello All, I am starting a new thread for July 2019 filers of i-130 for parents. I just mailed an application for my mother today. Please join the conversation and share your journey/process.
  2. This forum is to help and keep track of status for USC who are petioning a Parent to immigrate to the USA. Please remember to keep it civil and try to use this forum to only help each other on relevant topics pertaining to the VISA or immigration process. Good Luck to everyone!!!
  3. I filed I-130 for both my parents and just received NOA-2 and the case is being forwarded to NVC. My parents moved back from KSA to India a few days ago. a) How do I update their address with the NVC? There are no case#'s assigned yet. Do I contact NVC regardless or can this information be entered when I fill out the DS-260. I don't want the case to be forwarded to the wrong embassy (KSA) as they are now in India. b) My mom's passport also has just been renewed. Do I inform NVC of this change as well or just provide them this on the DS-260 in the future. All helps is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  4. Maybe I'm the only one with this problem, but I need to change my application from IR-5 to IR-1. Here's the deal: Our son petitioned for me, but he's unable to come up with enough income to sponsor me. In the meantime, my American husband moved back to the US and worked enough to get his last 4 qualifying SS credits, and now has 40 credits. That means, I am exempt from filing I-864 but need to file I-864W (proving husband's 40 credits and my marriage to him) instead. In researching the matter, I discovered that this would make it an IR-1 application. Does anyone here have any idea?
  5. My mother attended her immigrant visa interview on July 19th, 2018 at Islamabad Embassy, Pakistan. The officer asked her general questions and whole process went smoothly. She was told at the end of interview that her she will receive her immigrant visa in 1-2 weeks and passport will be sent back to her. It's been over 3 weeks but we have not heard back from the embassy. Not sure what is causing the delay for her immigrant visa. We haven't received request to submit any additional document or were given 221G after the interview. Upon calling them they informed my mother that her visa is still in process (not administrative processing). I will appreciate if someone here can guide me about how long it took them to receive their passport once their visa was approved. Especially if it was to do with their parents application. Thanks.
  6. Hi folks - I didn't see a formal tracker for August 2018 filers of I-130. So I thought I will start one if folks are interested in tracking status, issues, and approvals. Here is my info. I-130 - Mom Send from: California Service Center: Texas Priority Date: 23-Aug-2017 Credit card cashed / Text: 29-Aug-2018 NOA1 NOA2 I-130 - Dad Send from: California Service Center: Texas Priority Date: 23-Aug-2017 Credit card cashed / Text: 29-Aug-2018 NOA1: NOA2:
  7. Can a daughter with US Citizenship over 21+ years old sponsor her parent from the Ukraine (a non- visa waiver country) if he: 1) comes over on a B-1/B-2 visa first 2) Daughter applies for the I-30 based on IR-5 parent of US Citizen (takes 5-9 months) 3) Father applies for the I-539 to extend their stay until the I-30 is approved? I have not looked into this for a long time but in the past, I thought that the parent would be required to leave the country before being allowed back into the USA under the I-130. Another issue that could arise if the process took longer and his extension expired, would he need to leave the country or could he just get another extension?
