What is your priority date on your Notice of Approval? This date will help you determine if your case is current or not. At the moment processing is ON for priority dates before 01-July-2008. I am the same category as your husband of F2A category. See my timeline below.

Good luck.

Send it again and have it certified. Always remember, when you're sending important documents have it certified.

i contacted a congress man to inquire about my case and they called after 2 days asking for nearest consulate in India and they said my husband will get correspondence from Chennai ,but I can't understand my approval is still with uscis somewhere ,it didn't get forwarded to nvc then how can it reach consulate,and i don't think congressman requested for expedite service,any body have any wild guess, and what else i can do to get my case to nvc. does ombudsman help?please give me some suggestion

Hi all of u,

my i130 was approved on april6,2010 but NVC have no record of my case. my PD is dec2007 that is current from june2010
july6 going to complete 90days
have infopass for july 6
went to congessman`s office 2weeks ago but no reply yet!!!
NVC research my case and sent me an email saying that your case is located at losangles field office.
USCIS cant help me till 90 days then after that they can let me speak to higher authority.

i think it is happning a lot since they jump high in priority dates.

please post here if you get any update in your case.

just recieved an email from vermount service center
Good afternoon,



Your case was transferred from the Vermont Service Center (VSC) January 4, 2010 to the Los Angeles District Office (LOS). It does appear that LOS approved your case on April 5, 2010. For more information on your case and whether it was sent to the National Visa Center, you will have to contact LOS. Their contact information is as follows:



USCIS

Room 1001

300 North Los Angeles St

Los Angeles, CA 90012

i think we are in the same boat,I have my case in LOS too,they are very bad in transferring cases .my congressman replyed me yesterday that my case was transferred to NVC on 29th june 2010,but NVC still doesn't have anything in their system yet,I have an infopass on 9th june,lets see what happens.Anyway i did sent a mail to LOS on 29th june,god knows if they are going to respond to that,any keep posting please,i will do the same too

rajalucy
07-03-2010, 10:20 AM
thnx sure i will post every thing

what is the email for LOS is the same that posted on USCIS or it is some other office.
vermount service center give me the address but not the email

you mean infopass for july9 not june 9 ?

csc-ncsc-followup@ dhs.gov <<<< is this the email.

i went to immigration office with infopass. this guy said to me "this is just an approvel" and said "do you understand how this process"

when i explain him that my case was sent to NVC but they never get it.

then he said he will send an email to LOS and will call me in 3-4 days, if not then i can infopass again for next week

he also said that it is normal that they asign officers from local office from anywhere



MGOR _ hi,
go to the local office with infopass and see what they say.

07-09-2010, 09:52 AM
i haven't heard anything about my petition yet from nvc,still waiting.
anyway when u call uscis go with 1,2,6 sequence to speak to a representative,means u r going to select option that u lost your receipt no,so they will connect u to representative.call your us representative office on a weekly basis and find out who is incharge of ur case,in my case they inquire and said uscis transferred my case to nvc on 29th june,but i haven't heard about anything from nvc yet ,i am going to wait for 1 more week before i call my7 us rep's office again.i hope uscis sent it because they returned my photographs and bank statement on june 29th saying that my case was approved and they don't need all these evidence so they r returning it,

so i just have faith in god and waiting

Hi All,

I got my i-130 approval on Feb 4, 2010 (PD is 1Jul08). its been more than 90 days for USCIS to send my case to NVC, but it didn't happen so I called NVC they said they research and get back to me, which they did saying "USCIS has not sent any approval letter or packet to NVC" so I am trying to get infopass to findout, but my question is: I am currently in India, I want to get this process started, do you know how long will it take for rest of the processing?

Please give me some advise what to do next,

Appreciate your feedbacks

my I-130 petition got approved :)
i read through this thread and looks like i have to wait like 90days to hear from NVC, is that right?
also says on the notice of action letter that NVC will be contacting the beneficiary.
i wonder how much more time do i have to wait and what steps follows after hearing from NVC,
cold someone (who have already successfully went through all steps) pls post a timeline from I-130 approval all the way to the interview, which i think is the final step?
thanks in advance :D

I just want to let those friends who are already in USA holding a valid visa and who are the beneficiary of an approved I-130 petition and their priority date is current now, they can file for AOS; I-485 immediately without having to wait to receive any further correspondence from NVC or to locate their case etc.
I just got it confirmed via immigration lawyer, you can also discuss it with an immigration lawyer.
My priority date is March 16th, 2008 and I-130 approved and am currently in USA and was just waiting for any further correspondence from NVC because even after 90 days i didn receive any letter from, contacted NVC who informed that they have not received my case and asked to send a query to nvc research office which i did 10 days ago with no response back. Finally talked to the lawyer who told me that i dont have to wait for this correspondence from NVC and file I-485 straight away.
Thanks to all of you for sharing your insights in this regard.

Hi molu0212 and all,

I am a newbie in this forum. Actually just registered today. Thanks molu0212 for creating this thread because I am in the same boat as you were earlier.
My I-130 was approved on July 20 but NVC hasn't received it yet. I have already sent copy of my approval notice to NVCResearch@state.gov a week ago and still waiting for their reply. I doubt if my case is also transferred to LOS.
By the way, how did you know that your case was in LOS molu? Did NVC tell you so?

Lets share experience, thoughts and have all come together for the best way out.

Thanks.

Some of you folks seems to be confused. NVC handles cases for immigrants intending to come to US after their petition is approved and their Priority Date is current.
On the other hand if you are already in US, you have to file I-485 AOS (Adjustment of Status). If you were outside US when the petition was filed but now in US, you just have to inform NVC that you will be adjusting your status instead of consular processing.
Good Luck!
