  1. As of today, our case in the Non-Immigrant unit changed from Application Received to Administrative Processing. Is it normal for this to happen? How fast is this part and is there a guarantee that the visa will be made? We are worried that it would overlap on plans of my fiancé coming this Christmas.
  2. Sorry I'm going to try and keep this short! Back story: I married my husband in 2008. I divorced him in 2014. And I just remarried him again in December 2017. When we were married the first time we filed the I130 and were approved, but never followed through. He was given a 10 year ban and as of October this year, has completed and complied with the ban - he's been in Mexico for the last 10 years. Currently: We got married again 12/2017, and filed the I130 with our (same) lawyer. I received the I797 with a notice date of 10/01/2018 saying it was approved. Our priority date is 01/16/2018. We submitted all required documents and received notification on February 11, 2019 that all documents were received and he is in queue waiting for an interview. We have yet to receive an interview date! Is this normal? The lawyer says that they are taking longer than usual at the embassy in Juarez. Do you think our previous marriage is negatively impacting him obtaining an interview date? Is there anything else I can or should be doing? Just looking for opinions and any help/advice/signs of hope is greatly appreciated! 😁
  3. My imterview was yesterday. I gave them my civil documents at 11 and then i had to return at 1pm for my real interview. The interview was super nice, officers were super friendly and nice. The interview didn't take so long as I was expected. The CO at window 4 was very nice and patient to me and I felt so comfortable answering the questions and I felt like im talking to a friend of mine while giving some details to the answers. CO said your visa is ok to be issued and it will be issued within 10 business days, but 5 hours after I arrived home, charged my dead phone, and checked my CEAC, its under AP that takes several weeks. My lawyer said its a routine AP. ( to me it sounds like everyone goes through this AP) I just want to know why the normal routinely AP and the ugly AP have the same names?! They should pick a nicer name for the routinely one!!😑 But once I realised my original civil documents are with the embassy too and they didnt hand them back to me, I said maybe this is the reason for AP to check if my original documents are real or fake since I'm a refugee in NL and they assume all refugees are expert in faking documents. Well I feel being labled as a regugee is complicating so many things to me by putting me in difficult situations😐. Just cant wait to return to the states and get treated as a normal residence as I used to be. Should I just not worry about this AP or should I keep worrying?! I'm confused between the 2 kinds of APs. Tryna forget about it and not worry. I was super happy when the consular said its going to be issued within 10 days but that AP at my CEAC is telling me girl calm down don't be too excited not yet we are still working on this. 😤 Any experience like this plz?! Why do some ppl never went through AP things? And why do the US embassy still have my Original Civil Documents?
  4. Hey y'all Our petition finally got approved on September 12th! So, now we're waiting to start the NVC process but it's much more complicated than I thought it would be. I read through the wiki in regards to the processing. https://www.visajourney.com/wiki/nvc_process/ But could someone please dumb it down for me? Also, how long did this process take for you guys who have been through the processing? Please let me know Thank you guys always.
  5. Hi guys, My fiance and I applied for a K1 visa, and I went to the CO for an interview a month ago while he put me on "administrative processing", asking for my resume (i guess im under TAL, since I work in a technical field). 2 days ago it changed to "READY", with this statement under- "Your case is open and ready for your interview, fingerprints, and required documents. If you have already had your interview, please check your status after two business days. If no interview was required, please check back in two business days for the status of your application." 2 more things happened- 1. "Case Created" was changed to the same date as 2 days ago (it originally opened on January 2017) 2. It changed from "IMMIGRANT VISA APPLICATION" to "NONIMMIGRANT VISA APPLICATION" Today (48h after ==2 business days) it changed to "Application Received", without a change to "Case Last Updated" (remained 2 days ago). What does "Application Received" means? there's nothing on google about it. Thank you all in advance! Regards, Dave
  6. Hello all, I had my F1 visa interview on 24th July 2019 where I received 221G slip, asking me to email the court document and the passport was returned back. Court document was requested to me at the time of the interview, but I wasn't carrying it. Background information : I had visited US on B1 visa a month back and was arrested/convicted for over speeding / DUI while driving and received a bail / PR bond next day and was released. Next court hearing is on 4th of September. I have already emailed my court documents and also received confirmation from embassy stating they have received it on 24th itself. CEAC website states " Your visa case is currently undergoing necessary administrative processing. This processing can take several weeks." For how long should I wait, I have already scheduled one more visa appointment on 6th August. Should I go for the next appointment as well or just wait for the previous administrative processing results to come out. Thinking I would go for that since I wasn't carrying the court document with me and I will carry the document for next appointment
  7. Hi everybody, joining the masses of people going crazy waiting for EAD. Question: When looking up processing times for EAD on the USCIS website it has options of CA Service Center, Nebraska, NBC, Potomac, Vermont etc. What is the deciding factor of where your EAD get processed? I was always under the assumption the K1 AOS EAD's get processed at National benefits centre. But since I reside in California does that mean my EAD will get processed in the California Service Center with my AOS stuff? Thanks! PS still waiting on Noa1 for AOS and its been over two weeks already.. this is just getting silly.
  8. Hello everyone! I have a quick little question in regards to to NVC Processing. I submitted my petition in November 2018 and it's estimated to be approved this month! So, I was wondering how the NVC process goes? Could someone please tell me what I would be needing, what the process is like and how long it would take to finalise? Much appreciated! xx
  9. My application package reached the Phoenix Lockbox on Feb 8th, 2018. But as of now, I did not receive any SMS/email notification through my form G-1145, no receipt notice, nor did USCIS encash the enclosed check. USCIS says to wait for 30 days before contacting the lockbox. If I contact Lockbox support, they take 15 days to answer. I have already sent them an email a week ago, even when its not 30 days yet. But do they really take 30 days to process the application? Is there anyone else here who has recently sent their I-485, I-765 and I-131 application package to Phoenix with a similar timeline? I will update here once I receive a notification, or have any update on my case. Thanks.
  10. Hello All, I am hoping i can get some great advice on this forum as i do not understand what is going on with my application. I'm aware every case is different but i feel i have done whatever i can to get my case moving. I am married but my wife and i live in different states. When i filed for i751 it took over two years for it to be processed. i was told my case was pending security checks and that there is nothing they can do. I waited and waited and made numerous inquiries. Finally, i went for an infopass and i was told my case was in line for an interview. i went to the interview with my wife and attorney and we were asked a lot of questions. A lot of my background was digged. Even an accident i got into. The interviewer was convinced and approved my case. 2 years later i applied for n400 based on the 5yr rule as my wife and i live in different states. Mind you the reason i moved out of state was to secure a better job. I had no luck securing a job in my field in the state my wife resides. i see her from time to time and the plan is for her to join me soon. I applied for n400 in april 2017 and in two months i was scheduled for an interview. I passed the interview and the IO said she needed to review the file a bit before she can make a decision. A month passed by and still no response. I made an inquiry and i was told that i needed to to wait till after 90days. 90 days passed and i made an inquiry but received the generic letter saying that my case is pending adjudication. I made an infopass and i was told the same thing. i made two more additional inquiries and still received the generic response. I finally contacted my congressman 160 days after my interview. My congressman responded to me today saying that "USCIS is conducting background checks on my case and it could take years". Unbelievable! How can they be conducting background checks when they just did an extensive one not two long ago when i was removing conditions?Something doesn't add up to me. Infact, when i went for the infopass, the person at the window said my file was lying somewhere on the IO's desk. I am aware immigration benefit is a benefit and not a privilege. However, i have followed all the rules and waited as i've been told. i have not broken the law besides minor speeding tickets. i pay my taxes and im not involved in any illegal activity. i am also not from a muslim country or a muslim. 1. What steps should i take further? 2. Has anybody been through a similar situation? 3. Does anybody have experience filing 1447(b) as my case is way past 120days? 4. What about Ombudsman? This is very frustrating as i went to this background check nonsense a few years back and it took over 2yrs. Thanks in advance
  11. hey guys! so my case was created by the NVC on February, 5 2019 in Sydney and then today on February 12 2019 I was appointed a new NVC case number ( due to the fact that we requested a transfer of consulates from Australia to Brazil) why im on here is to get an idea of the timeline from NVC case number creation to the interview date. I have tried looking at some peoples but its so hard to tell, especially with the cases that are have been approved so long ago. anybody who has an idea of the timeline I would greatly appreciate it. Especially for the people that interviewed in Brazil! thanks guys.
  12. hi guys!!! So let me give you a little run down of things....around 12/10/18 I received email from NVC that I am able to move to my next step I need to submit fees and documents etc..I went ahead and paid AOS and IV fees and around 12/14/18 once my fees were “paid” I was able to submit documents and it took NVC a few for them to let me know what’s accepted and what’s missing etc. so I believe 1/4/19 I received an email stating what else I need and what is missing so basically my spouses IV stuff was all accepted and I from my end needed to upload my w2 AGAIN and give my household member(my fathers) tax transcript and also I needed to fill out I864 instead of the ez and I’ve uploaded those and it’s been accepted 🙌🏻 Now I keep going back and fourth with them my w2 states next to it “accepted” they keep sending me messages that i need to send in every page and I’m pretty sure I’ve done that twice! It’s so frustrating I feel like I’ve been waiting forever I’ve submitted it all literally nothing is missing at this point here I am waiting another 2-3 weeks for them to review things yet again! Has anyone else had this problem? It sucks because it will obviously take them time to schedule an interview also 😭😭
  13. Hi everyone! I'm waaaaay far off from getting my I-130 approved but I was just curious about the prices for the NVC process because I know it'll be quite expensive. How much in total would it be throughout the entire process as of now? I wanted to know in advance so I can prepare for it in the future and that my hubby and I wouldn't be struggling :') I pray everyone is doing well and that your processes will be quick! Have faith everyone❤️
  14. Hi everyone! We are currently waiting for our NOA2 but we have a doubt and we cant find much information about it. I (beneficiary) travel a lot and my current passport only has 2 blank pages and I might need more for my job. I was thinking of renewing my passport before the case is sent out to the NVC. Do you think I can just update my passport information? Or will this be an issue? My us tourist visa is stamped in my current passport. Thanks in advance for your kind replies!
  15. Hello I would like to know how long the case stays in the NVC. We received our notice of immigrant visa creation on October 10, 2018. I have read that according to the timeline, it takes approximately 2-3 months but I know that the time can vary. Please let me know your experience with the NVC. Thank you
  16. Hi. I recently filed for my husband under Formi-130. I am a permanent resident and i received a NOA and the priority date is the current date. What does it mean? I’ve read some forums and it says there is already a visa available for him but I am not really sure
  17. So we filed our I-129F back in April and got our NOA1 on May 2nd, 2018. I’m feeling anxious like we should get a response about the NOA2 any day now. We’re with the California center (CSC) However this website site says that the current cases being processed at the CSC are for May 11th, 2018?! I’ve watched each day as that day increases past May 2nd and it’s making me panic. Did they skip over our application? When we called the USCIS a week ago; a woman politely told us any RFE’s would’ve happened months ago if any. If there’s anyone able to help me based on the information on this website, I would really appreciate that. Thank you!
  18. Hey guys, I have been placed under ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING since my interview (21st September) for a tourist visa. I am a Tunisian citizen living in France, I am working here and I live on my own ( I have got ties with this country ). my travel history I guess was the reason they placed me under AP. I have been to Iran, Jordan, Qatar (as a tourist ). I’d like to kindly ask you if anyone here was placed under AP in US embassy in Paris, and if they granted you the visa , how long were you waiting for ? I started to lose hope in spending CHRISTMAA and New Year’s Eve in the US.. as it’s been almost two months since I applied. very much obliged. kind regards. I wish you the best.
  19. April filer ‘17. Anyone knows whats going on?? My interview was on 21st December i didn’t get AP and i was supposed to get the visa in 10 days but still nothing. My IV visa says “application received” as of 23rd jan. But it’s been more then 2 working days and the status still hasn’t changed.
  20. Hey, Wanted to drop this here to see if anyone else is experiencing any timing problem with their Adjustment of Status. I'm a Haitian citizen living in Brooklyn. I started with a student visa here in 2008. Then after the earthquake, i switched to I-821/I-765. I filed for my I-485 (petitioned by my wife) in August of last year. After sending a few files back and forth and paying for all the fees, by November or so, all fees were paid and all files were sent. I was sent my new I-765 card with parole (to travel) while my case is pending. But I havent heard back from them since. It's getting close to a year now. Anyone else experiencing unusual delays with the processes? Or is it jut me? Ad I'm aware that with the current administration and my being Haitian, things my be delayed on purpose too. But, let me know if you guys experience the same thing, have advice, or tips. Thanks!
  21. I am noticing that some of the various visa assistant/processing consultants & services online saying that the because of the current (Trump) administration's "crackdown on immigrants" (not my words), that if there are errors on the forms a higher percentage of immediate denials will be issued by USCIS and they will not bother with sending any RFE (Request for Evidence) and NOID (Notice of Intent to Deny) notices to allow these corrections to be made. My first thought is that this is merely a sales tactic to "scare" us into paying for their services; I actually had one of these consultants tell me this on the phone and they then made an me immediate offer & discount to "act before things get worse". Is this truly the case or am I right? Please, I am not looking for comments about Trump or politics as this is not the place for that, only sincere replies to my question... Thanks!
  22. Hi! NVC confirmed that received my case 28 days ago. My case wasn’t put into the system yet. Is that taking that long nowadays? 4 weeks and counting... How long does it usually take to get the case number? After that, how long should I expect to have my interview scheduled considering that I don’t get a checklist?
  23. Hello, Does anybody have any experience or heard approximately how long it will take (I am in Taiwan) for NVC to receive (AOS and IV) and case complete, and then how long till the interview at AIT in Taipei, Taiwan? Thank you in advance, Brett
