  1. It being late October, and no October filers for 2018 found on the site, so I started this one. I am a USC living in Brazil and petitioning for my Brazilian wife of 30 years. It's complicated, but the basics are that I am are applying for a resident visa for my wife for the second time, the first being granted in 1989 after our marriage in Texas in 1988. We lost the visa in 2014 in part because of my ignorance of immigration rules and because of family medical situations in Brazil that prevented my wife from traveling. In 1989 the procedure was very simple. Today it's become 10x more complicated due to 9/11. Since we both live outside the USA we are using a state-side lawyer to be sure all paperwork is as correct as possible. Turns out I would have submitted my I-130 in March, but due to using a lawyer, it was only submitted in October. I hope that at least it goes through without a hitch. On one hand she already has a SSN and it was necessary to include her old Resident Visa ID# on the application. Don't know if this will delay or speed up the process. Based on Oct 2017 filers, we might be looking at a long year ahead of us. 10/05/2018 I-130 sent 10/08/2018 I-130 received Chicago Lockbox
  2. Hello everyone I'm doing my cr1 now and I got NOA1 since July,9 2019. Surprisingly,I got case number begins with IOE and the letter is from Nebraska. I've read about IOE case but not too much information.Someone said they got NOA2 in 3 months after that but their service center is different. I just would like to know that has anyone else got NOA1 case begins with IOE? and where is your service center? Has anyone got NOA2 already? Let's share your timeline and discussion together.🤗🤗
  3. Hi everyone, We sent my husband's AOS packet on July 29th and it was delivered July 31st. His K-1 Visa just expired yesterday (August 15th) and we have not received any receipt numbers or NOA1 yet. Is he now illegally in the country? What are we supposed to do? Is there any way to know if they even received the packet from the post office or whether it is lost? Is anyone else still waiting for their NOA1s?
  4. Thread for 2017 I-130 filers for spouses of permanent residents, Mumbai Consulate. Please share your Priority Dates and any other questions.
  5. Hello all! I posted on a separate thread as well but hoping you fine lovelies can share some experience and light my way. We are from the UK (well my fiance is) and we received NOA1 on April 19th. I have been looking all over this site and people from the UK that filed after us have received NOA2's already. I'm starting to get concerned?? I was advised by Rapid Visa (which is who we used to help assist) that it went to the California service center, however I tried to inquire with them but this late at night it's their international staff I believe so she didn't have much information to provide me. If anyone can assist at all? We're very anxious to go home (well home for me, as I'm in the UK on a Tier 2 Work visa, and hoping that it doesn't expire before we get approved to go) Thanks in advance everyone!!
  6. I got the NOA1 some time ago, but was reading over the instructions again and wanted to confirm my understanding of them (instead of misunderstanding them and being disappointed months later). The instructions read something like: I looked at the information and it looked correct (real info not in the above quote). There is not anything else I should do until NOA2 correct? I don't need to verify anything on their site or anything? I did notice that it only printed Last Name, First Name on the NOA1 Name column, am I correct to assume that it's fine that middle name isn't on there, they just put those two on the NOA1 form? Just wanted to confirm all this for some peace of mind.
  7. Hi everyone I need some help with something, with my fiance We send the application the 24/05/2019 and to the date today we never received the Noa1 I'm worried anybody have an experience with something like this please. Thanks
  8. Hey everyone! Any July 2018 filers around? We sent ours on July 5th, waiting for NOA1 Good like and happy waiting!
  9. Hi everyone, We just received our NOA 1 and our case got appointed to the Texas Service Center. I was wondering which Service Centers currently work the slowest? Thanks!
  10. This room is to keep up with September I130 filers at Texas Center with NOA2. Please share.
  11. We’ve sent our i130 kast march 28 via UPS, until now no email or text yet for NOA1. Where could I call or email to inquire on this matter? Thank you.
  12. I have mailed the I-130 (and all the required documents, signed etc.) to the USCIS in London over 3 weeks ago, yet we have not received a NOA1 or a charge on my credit card. We also have no way of tracking the overnight package for the form that we sent. Is this normal? Should I email the USCIS? I'm getting nervous at this point because we cannot move forward with our future plans until at least we get this NOA1. Thank you!
  13. Hi, My EAD/AP runs out on August 28th so I was starting the renewal process today and planning to send everything by tomorrow or the next day. However, as I've been doing all the paperwork I've discovered that I've lost NOA1 for the I-485 and I need this for the renewal (and yes, I've 100% lost it). I need to send the renewal stuff by the end of this week because it's now 6 months until my EAD/AP runs out, can anyone please tell me how I can get another NOA1 for I-485 quickly??? Thank you in advance!!
  14. I’m US citizen Filed i130 for spouse in May, finally got Noa2 10/26/2018 now just waiting to see what happens next. Called NVC and they received petition but will not hear until 4-8 weeks just hoping others can share their timeline with dates and how long their process went and what to expect Thanks 😊😊😊
  15. Hello! I recently filed I-90 because my 2 year conditional green card had an error (wrong resident since date). I sent the application on December 3rd, 2018. According to the proof of delivery from FedEx, It was delivered and signed for on December 4th, 2018. It’s been 2 weeks or 14 days now and I still haven’t heard back from them even though I did send G-1445. My question is how long do I have to wait for NOA1 (receipt notice)? It’s been 14 days now and I’m getting kinda worried. Especially considering that I sent my original green card with that application. I thought I would at least get a text message by now saying they received it but so far nothing. I’d really appreciate any help I can get! Thank you!

  17. My husband and I want to travel to Vegas from Texas and back for SEMA next week. The 90 days have passed and we have submitted AOS. We have received a text confirming they have received but haven’t received the physical letter (NOA1) in the mail. Would it be safe to fly or would we run into issues? I’ve read mixed reviews and do not want there to be any issue or doubt before purchasing a ticket.
  18. Hey Everyone! I feel a bit ridiculous- but in the middle of a big house move, I have seemed to have misplaced my physical copy of the NOA1. I have read that I will 100% need my NOA2 once received, but does anyone know if I will ever need to present NOA1 in the future? Please let me know! Cheers, Sydney and Jamie
  19. Really confused about address change! My state of residence is Alaska and I need to keep my residency to keep my seasonal government job. However, I am visiting family in California for three months and also about to start temporary work here. I know I need to change an address with USCIS. We received our NOA1 May 16th. My permanent address should remain in Alaska, since that is where we plan to live.. Am I allowed to temporarily work out of state?? Or will that just make me look even more unstable ?
  20. After initial arrival to lockbox when does the clerk open the package to cash the check? The day it arrives or a few days later?
  21. Application package mailed Friday Dec. 29th. Package is in Dallas TX awaiting Tuesday morning. Here's to a new year full of happiness and love. I pray that all January 2018 applications are processed speedily and that we are able to reunite with our loved ones soon. jj
  22. We are in Georgia and my husband was issued a driver's license that expired on the one year anniversary of his NOA1 when he received his extension letter after filing his application for lifting conditions (not his green card expiration). So his GA DL expires 7/10/18 but his green card is extended until 9/29/18. Evidently that's how they do it here. Just wanted GA filers to know "Now, any applicant whose driver’s license will expire within 30 days or has already expired can provide the Georgia Department of Driver Services an original I-797, Receipt Notice, evidencing his or her extension of status request is pending with USCIS to obtain a temporary license valid for 120 days from the date of expiration of the applicant’s current license". So he had to pay $50 and now has a paper GA DL that is valid and expires Oct 29.... not sure how they did that math but it should be enough time to get the 10 year Green Card....applying N-400 tomorrow!
  23. Hello VJ members, Just a quick question, what date are you guys using for your NOA1 on your timelines, priority or notice? I see the priority date and notice date are a few days apart, I've been going by the notice date.

  25. Hello all! My Fiancée and I got our NOa1 a few days ago; and now the real waiting begins. I have a question though if you could help me out again On the NOA1 it has a section where it lists the beneficiary/ies. My fiancées name is listed, however he childs is not. Is this a problem and should I contact USCIS? Or is it fine. I put down her child as a child on the 129f, and put that she is living with her. thank you!
