  1. 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
  2. We sent our I-129F via certified mail and we have confirmation that they received our application on the 27th of December. Today is the 4th of January and we still haven't got an e-mail receipt from them and the money has not been cashed yet. (We added the G-1145 and the G-1450 on the top of our packet). We also thoroughly checked the application before sending it to make sure that everything is correct. Is anybody else experiencing a similar delay??
  3. We filed our I-129F application 6 weeks ago and we still haven't received a receipt yet. Unfortunately we paid with a money order so there is no way to know if they cashed in the money. My fiancé is the petitioner and he wants to start the process all over again. Is that a good idea?? Please help 🙏
  4. Thanks for reading my post. I will try to be brief, so we submitted our I-129F For K1 Visa back on November 2021, few days later got the online notification that case was recieved and also the payment, all good here and we knew the waiting game was starting. In March 2022 , got an update on the online tool for tracking which said that "Document Was Returned to USCIS" telling us that some document was tried to be mailed to us but was "undeliverable" , after this I used a tool of USCIS to file an inquiry with the issue and then added a new addres for the document to be mailed again, they responded some weeks later with an email telling me that they got the inquiry and that the document was gonna be mailed again, but its been more than a month and we havent gotten the letter which we assume is NOA1 , and also on the online tool for tracking, the status is still in "Document Was Returned to USCIS" . My question is: What should we do? just wait till the letter gets to us? is it normal that its been more than a month and hasnt arrived? or should i contact them again?. Timelines: Filing and mailing I-129F with Payment : November 11 ,2021 Case recieved : November 17 ,2021 Document sent by USCIS: November 19, 2021 Notification of undelivarable : March 14, 2022 Me submitting the inquiry : March 31, 2022 USCIS reply to inquiry saying will try to deliver again: April 18, 2022
  5. Does anyone have a clue as to why NOA2 estimated dates keep getting pushed back further and further? We received our NOA1 back in July and the original estimate was early March. Now it's mid May. The average time between NOA1 and NOA2 last year (at least for Ukraine) was about 7-8 months and now those who received their NOA1 back in Feb-March 2021 are still waiting for NOA2s. What is the bottleneck? This doesn't appear to just be a Ukraine thing but something going on for couples from all different countries. I see like 1-2 NOA2s received each day on the immigration timeline tracker, which seems awfully low given the amount of people who are on this site. Any news or updates that I may have missed involving staff shortages, delays caused by covid, etc. on this front are greatly appreciated.
  6. Hello, we received our noa1 for I-485 and i noticed that the name was spelled wrong and also the birthdate was wrong. How can i get this fixed?
  7. Your NOA1 date, just some info. I see alot of people saying their NOA1 date is their "notice date", while in fact it's the "received date". For example: I-129f sent: 2020-12-01 Notice received: 2021-02-15 NOA1: 2021-02-15 So you sent your I-129f in December, received a notice in February. But since it only takes a couple of days to get to the Lockbox, your NOA1 is the date "they" receive it, so somewhere in December, like this: I-129f sent: 2020-12-01 Notice received: 2021-02-15 NOA1: 2020-12-05 Because some people put the wrong date in their timeline, the estimate approval date will never be right. I know you can't hold on to that, especially now, but still. I hope this is helpful 🤗
  8. My fiancé submitted the petition on February 26, 2021 but so far we haven't received NOA1, what should we do? We're thinking of getting married by proxy but we're not sure. Thank you!
  9. Good morning! I'm a US citizen through naturalization, and my mom came to visit at the beginning of the year. We decided that she is going to stay here due to COVID situation in her residence country. Her tourist visa allowed time on her passport passport (I-94) is going to expire by the end of June. We sent the I-485 Adjustment of Status application to USCIS Lockbox and was delivered on May 25th. I know that because of Covid NoA are taking longer than usual, and now I'm thinking that her i-94 might expire before receiving any notification that her process has started. Should I file for a visa extension? Should I just wait? If her visa expires does she have to go back to her residence country? Any help will be appreciated... Thanks!
  10. Hi we received a text back in March saying our case was received. I checked on the case status checker and it says they received ours in January. However we only ever got a text - never any mail or email. The text did say form I-1797 will be sent to us but we never got it. Do we need the physical noa1 mail or is just the text fine? thanks!
  11. It appears there have been no NOA1 receipt notices received by I-129F applicants since mid-December. I am one of the people that haven't received my NOA1 (packet received by lockbox on 13th Nov). Does anyone know whether they are actually processing the K1s right now? I don't understand how it could possibly take SO long even if there is an influx of applications. It's getting really frustrating.
  12. Hi everyone, my fiancé (the petitioner) had received a text saying ‘USCIS: your case was received. Official Receipt Notice (Form I-1797) to follow in Mail. ’ and gave us a receipt number. It’s been 7 days since the text and we have not received any mail or email, how long does it take to receive form I-1797? Also I’ve entered our receipt number in the status checker and it says that the number is not recognised. Anyone know why that is? Thanks
  13. We received the NOA1 last evening March 7 for our I-129F via text message. The check still hasn’t gone through and we’re wondering what happened. There are sufficient funds in the account and no issues with the check we sent. I’m worrying if the check slipped out of our file during the sorting process. Anyone have this issue?
  14. We received our NOA1 for my husband's AOS application on Nov. 6, 2020. We haven't heard anything since then. I know they're super behind (and that they work slowly, even before COVID), but I don' t know if I should worry. Does anyone know when we should hear back about the next steps? And what the next steps are? My understanding is that there's an NOA2 at some point related to the boimetrics appt... I'm a little confused about what's next and how long that part takes. Any insight is appreciated!
  15. Please direct me to a Thread for People Waiting on Green Card after Arrival. Thanks
  16. The best way we were able to prove having met each other within the last 2 years was a trip we took about 2 years ago. The trip was from the 23rd of December 2018 and lasted until Jan. 3rd 2019. I have sent the application on Dec. 5th but so far have received no NOA1. I see that many people get a NOA1 around 10 days after sending their application and some get it after just a few day, should we be getting worried? The shipping was priority express and I sent everything correctly. The tracking said it was signed for and picked up on the 8th, so 7 business days ago. Any tips?
