  2. Greetings, My I-130 application was initially transferred to Potomac service center (priortity date 9/24/18) to the National Benefits Center 5 months later around February 1st. I am the USA citizen petitioner and recently received a notice to come to my local immigration office for an official matter on the 25th of March. The beneficiary is in Jamaica and NOT in the USA. The letter states to bring the letter, passports, marriage certificate, birth cert for me and the beneficiary and evidence of a bona fide marriage. I am confused and seeking any information as to why a request was made to come to a local office and is this request solely for me but why? My original i130 contained these requested documents along with i130a. We are not adjusting status as he is in Jamaica. The letter does reference his A number as he was already known to immigration. Thank you for any insight.
  3. I’ve received some notifications from the app but status didn’t changed, does it mean that they are working on my case?
  4. Hi everyone. I filled the I130 form for spouse on february the 20th. I got my NOA1 a week later, but im still awaiting on my NOA2, does anybody got updated on theirs?
  5. Hello- just wondering what exactly determines where your I-130 goes to get processed. I'm feeling a little disappointed because I live in New England and was told my petition would likely go to Vermont. I just recently received the receipt and it is in Virginia. Vermont has a much quicker I-130 processing time compared to Virginia's center and I don't know why I was sent to Virginia. I called USCIS and they told me your residence does not actually determine where your petition is sent, but rather your spouse's country of residence. I hope to get some insight on this! Thanks!
  6. I mailed my response however it was forwarded to capital heights not to potomac, has anyone experienced this. Should I be worried?!?
  7. Is there an applicant from February 2018 who is approved at the potomac service center?
  8. Hello VJ members, do you guys think they will be starting to roll out approvals for September?
  9. I received an RFE on March 16 2018 and responded to it (Potomac Service Center)on March 20th (it was scheduled to be received on Marched 22) and I checked my status on the USCIS website it still hasn’t been updated. The messed up part is that I lost my tracking number with the USPS. ikr stupid me . I called USCIS and they couldn’t give me an update because the lady I spoke with said that she didn’t have “access” to it. Does it usually take this long for them to update it ? How can I find out? Thank you guys 😊😊
  10. YSC doesn't list processing times for I-130 today. What's going on? See below screenshot from today, and another one from January 18th.
  11. Hi all, Is it just me or others are feeling that Potomac has slowed down, while other centers, especially Texas, have picked up speed? I am an October 3rd filer and have surpassed the six months mark. It has been a long wait and I need some light at the end of the tunnel. Please share your thoughts or the good news. Thanks
  12. Since the previous thread got too big and I didn't see another thread I thought I would start one! Our packet was sent to Potomac. Our NOA1 was received March 12th.
  13. Hi everyone.just new here. Anyone june filers here from potomac center got approved?PD JUNE 12 2017
  14. Hi, Is there any approval for stepchild PD August 2017, Potomac? Please share your case here.
  15. Hello all! im a US Citizen and I petition for my wife who is here in the US with me. My question is, why do i see I-130's approved in 60 days and others 6-9 months. Our priority date is September 1,2017
  16. Can anyone explain ? Just received an email regarding this from uscis
  17. I didn't see one so I figured I'd start one. I'm new to this place. Here's my story. Been in the US since I was 13 (2004). Served in the Army for six years after high school. Was given my citizenship in the Army in 2011. Sent out i130 for my mom on the 9th of June 2017 Received Acceptance email on the 19th of June 2017. Case routed to Potomac. Anyone know anything about these guys? I wrote a very elaborate cover letter. My mom is severely ill with diabetes and needs treatment, and also, my sister just had a baby in May of this year and we need my mom here. Additionally, I explained my anxiety and depression and how it's affected me since I've been separated from my mother. It affects my ability to focus on anything and I'm so sad and anxious all the time and I suffer from dis-associative disorder. I lost a new job today (literally 4 hours ago) because of this. I'm disassociated because I just want to be home with my mom and brother. My mind isn't here anymore and I don't want to be here. I just want my mom. I'm 26, have never dated, never really done anything...Just waiting for my mother, and waiting. My father screwed things up a lot and has strung us along and hasn't even done anything.

    Potomac Case

    HI! I filed in early August, but haven't heard anything. just switched the times for Potomac and said they were processing K3 visas from December 2016. Is that a typo? Last month they were processing into 2017? Also, how many months is the average wait for Potomac? This is definitely stressful being in the dark.
