CSPA for Consular Processing (I-824) - Green Card for Daughter
My 140 got approved in Dec 2013. I got my GC in EB1 Category on 14 oct 2016.

For my daughter we started consular processing, submitted the application for action on an Approved petition (Form I-824) in Dec 2018 acknowledged in March 2019 and finally approved in Feb 2020.

After the case was opened we submitted the DS-260 in October 2020 and on Feb 4 2021 received notification from NVC that documentation is received and should wait for appointment.

We submitted an expedited request to NVC as she will age out on June 7 2021 (21 years old ) and NVC forwarded the case to Mumbai Embassy. Her preference category is E1. Priority Date is Dec 5 2013.

Currently due to pandemic there are extreme delays so wanted to know will she have CSPA leverage? Any help on what can be done at this stage?

I-130 for my parents
Hello friends,
So I was trying to file I-130 for my parents online. So in past five years address history, so in that section, there must be from and to duration. But for my present address, they are not letting me write from date to present. It has to be mm/dd/yyyy format. So how can I write present in that box ?
Please suggest if anyone knows.
Thank you

Marriage based Green Card timeline: Pittsburgh office
Hey folks!

Thought I should share my marriage-based Greencard timeline with you all. Maybe it'll provide some timeframe of processing in these Covid times. As always, your case timelines may differ and this does not constitute any immigration advice in any fashion or form. We are in Pittsburgh PA

Case type: Married to an American Citizen.

Application mailed on: July 07, 2020 (main forms I-130 and I-485). We also filed I-131 (application for travel) and I-765 (application for work permit).
We did not include medical forms I-693, as we intended to take that to our interview.
Application received by USCIS: July 09, 2020
Filing Notice arrived in mail (I-797C): July 27, 2020
Biometrics scheduled on: Jan 06, 2021
Employment card received: March 14, 2021 (a combo Employment/Travel card )
Interview scheduled on: March 30, 2021
Green Card received: April 04, 2021

Total time duration from day of application shipping to receiving GC in mail: 8 months and 28 days.

ps: In Dec 2020, I prepared my medical records in a sealed envelope from a USCIS approved doctor in anticipation of things moving forward as this process may take a few weeks.
ps: We had a very kind interviewing officer and our application was approved the same day after our interview (permitting background check). The same day, the online status showed the card was being produced.
ps: Aug 02, 2020, we moved to a different address and submitted a change of address request online (Did not affect the timeline in anyway, we think).
ps: We took our sealed medical records to the interview and did not submit it with the initial application.

Most importantly, Keep faith guys and do not lose hope or get discouraged. I know that it is easier said than done, but it will work out. Godspeed and Good luck!

I-130
Is anyone here who recently filed "I-130 Petition for Alien Relative" for Spouse on Citizenship bases.
My i-797 says' your application processing at Nebraska service Center.
Estimated time range is 2 Months to 7 Months for U.S. citizen filing for a spouse.

If i change my address while apllicaion in processing does it change the Service center.

I751
Hi all, so I applied for i751 in November 2019 and March 2021 my case was approved and my status has been sitting like that for a while. Till now they didn’t send my card into production. My case status still shows that case was approved and I have received my approval letter as well. Upon calling USCIS they asked me to wait for 30-60 days for my card to be sent out whereas there are people who already received their cards within a week or so. My application was received at WAC and later transferred to NBC where my case was approved. Can anyone shared their similar experience and how did you get it sorted out please. Thanks in advance.

I-130 service center
Hi all,

I have filed I-130 for my mom and on my USCIS account under "case status" tab it says: "It is being processed at our Nebraska Service Center location." However, at the end of on notice letter it says "Potomac service center". Which one should I rely on? Does anyone have the same experience?
