  1. Hello Visa Journey Family, It has been a while since I've posted here (since my wife entered the country) but I am now having issues with my mother-in-law's permanent residence card (green card). She entered the United States on November 9, 2018 with her Immigrant Visa (I-130) stamp in her passport. The Point Of Entry (POE) was San Diego International Airport. She went through a lengthy interview and then was released with a stamp on her visa (which makes it good for a year). We started the waiting process for the physical permanent resident card (and social security). Over a month passed and she still didn't get her social security card, even though we had filled out the form DS-260 saying that we would like to request a SS card. We had to go to downtown to get that taken care of. We then waited 120 days (4 months) for her physical green card which was never received in the mail. Throughout this wait, we called the USCIS office several times asking for an update for her status (as we'd had family members received their green cards within weeks) but they told us we had to wait the full 120 days before we could make an inquiry. We called on March 10, 2019 and told them of the issue, they told us that the Texas Service Center (TSC) had not received her file but they would make an inquiry to see what happened. We just received a letter today (March 30, 2019), stating: "A search of USCIS records indicates the Immigrant Visa Fee has been received. However, it appears that the Texas Service Center has not received your Department of State issued Immigrant Visa Packet, which should have been submitted by the Port of Entry (POE) when you entered the United States. The Texas Service Center requires a completed Lost Visa Packet in order to process your Permanent Resident Card. Further research is needed in regards to your inquiry. You should receive correspondence within the next 90 days regarding this case. If you do not receive this correspondence, please contact customer service." For the life of me, I have not been able to figure out what the heck a "Lost Visa Packet" is and how we can fill it out. I've been googling that exact phrase for the past 2 hours, with no luck. Has anyone else received such a letter? Does anyone know what this could entail? Is it something that needs to be done with an Infopass session? (There is currently no way to make an appointment in Texas since we recently relocated here from California) To make matters a bit worse, she now has to go back home to Lebanon temporarily while this gets resolved. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance for your responses
  2. Starting New Topic for N-400 May2020 Texas Service Center Applicants Only to track applications and share news/updates. I filed on May 19th and am still stuck on Background Check, wondering what the average time has been for the next step. Thanks.
  3. I got my Notice of Action 1 in january 13 2020. It stated it came from Texas Service Center. I was happy to see that because TSC processing time was fast. After my case went out of processing time range, I asked USCIS to look into my case which is out of processing time now. They replied that my case is in Vermont Service center and within processing time. TSC processing time is 4 -7 months VSC processing time is 20-24 months Now I don't know what should I do?
  4. Hi, I filed I-130 application for my wife online on 12/04/2019, got a IOE receipt number and NOA1 on 12/06/2019 from Texas Service Center. Since the date for inquiry passed for TSC, I gave them a call and they mentioned that my case is with Potomac Service Center. I never got any notification about case being transferred. The timeline for Potomac are way behind compared to TSC. Did this happen to anyone else? Thank you!

  6. I could not find a general forum for all the Texas Service Center filers to come together and share their progress. This will give us TSC filers a general idea of what dates they are currently working on. My timeline is in my signature. Good luck to everyone, keep us up to date on your progress!
