Hi Layla,
I just called the NVC this morning and was notified that my file was returned to USCIS last Friday October 4th. I asked specifically what office and since my local office is Philly, however she was not sure and asked me to call USCIS to find out the specific office since they now have the file again. Well I am guessing it might have been sent to NBC since that is where all FB-AOS are processed initially.

If I were you I will keep calling them every two weeks, and the best time to call is early morning before 8 AM, as wait time is less than 5 mins. If you call during the day be prepared to wait for at least 30 mins b4 talking to a live person.

NVC can be reached @ 603-334-0700

Good luck!

You will be fine, the interview date will stay put for a couple of months.
The note from DOS was that any retrogression will not affect anyone who filed in August or September. My guess is that they will try to keep the cutoff date at September 2013 for a few months to accommodate all August/September 2013 filers.

Congrats on your interview date. My EAD and AP just got approved today as well.

Guys,

FYI:

I am among one of those who have the similar issue related to AOS.
My benificiary is in US in a valid F1 status.We applied for AOS (F2a- lpr Spouse)and got the acceptance receipt. I got I-130 receipt 3 weeks after i-485 acceptance and it said that "I-130 has been approved and sent to NVC for further processing". I did however include all documents related to F1 along with I-130 form.

So I contacted NVC via email and stated my situation. After 2 weeks they replied back and asked me a copy of my I-130 and then they replied me again saying that they have sent my case back to USCIS. So I think it is a pre-requisite to notify NVC if you are willing to do AOS (in case your beneficiary resides in US in a valid non-immigrant status) or else they will start the process for consular Processing.





Hi everest, could you please post the email address you sent it to... Just so we can check if the case is sent back to Uscis already or I need to send them more information. Thanks..




Hi there,
Email them at [email protected] and write your USCIS receipt number as the "Subject". You also need to mention the name and date of birth of both the "Beneficiary" and "Petitioner". They will reply your email within 2 weeks.

Due to large volume of emails NVC receive every day, it could take 1-2 weeks to respond back. Make sure to include all your important information when you email them. This way they can authenticate you and send you the correct reply.

This morning, we received an email from NVC to pay fees and fill in form DS 261. I called them once again to let them know ill be adjusting status here and also sent another email this morning. I was directed to call USCIS, saying NVC cannot transfer my file until USCIS requests for it. When i called USCIS i was told i have to contact my local USCIS office in Texas, and they have to request for the transfer

Pretty much the officer told me, i should go for my interview and after the interview the field office will request for my file from the state, which may delay approval. Another option is either to do an info pass (we live 4 hrs away from local field office) or write a letter requesting my files to be transfered from NVC to local office before the interview so hopefully someone can take care of it before then. Right now, am in the process of writing a letter and putting together documents to mail to local field office.

Went for my interview on Wednesday, not so great. Asked us the common questions, how we met, what my job entails, date of birth and I-485 questions. She couldnt make a decision because she did not have my I-130 file despite me calling. I was told by NVC that it was sent to USCIS on October 28th. However, she made a copy of my approved I-130 and said she may be able to make an approval from this but she will have to review my file and go through all the documents again making sure we dont miss anything. If anything is wrong she will contact us in few days, if we dont hear from her in few days, we should get an approval in about 2 weeks. So the waiting continues for us!

That is good news. Since the copy of I-130 that you provided them is the same copy they would get from USCIS, it should be fine. Also since PD is current, they should be able to approve I-485. If you have time, could you post the questions they asked in your case details page? Thank you. 😁
