Dear Friends My daughter is in the F2B Cat. with a PD of June 2006. We got emails that the case in now due for further processing. The sent links for payment of Aff. of Support fee bill and Choice of Agent form. And it also said that if the Principal App. wants to Adj status wth the USCIS then let the NVC know before taking any forther action. Now I called the NVC and USCIS - both did not give me a clear ans.- NVC said ask USCIS what to do, and USCIS said ask NVC I have written an email to NVC What action should we take? the PD in Aug visa bulletin for [email protected] is Dec 2005 Thanks

[quote=GKG;2472] And it also said that if the Principal App. wants to Adj status wth the USCIS then let the NVC know before taking any forther action. Thanks[/quote] Once I-130 is approved, applicant can either file I-485 application (if they are inside US) ot go for interview (if they are outside US). It means that if the applicant (not sponsor) is in US, they can file I-485 application. If they are filing the I-485 application (adjustment of status), they should call USCIS and let them know that that they do not send application to NVC. Please see the question "How would applicant switch between I-485 and consular processing" in the link below: http://blog.mygcvisa.com/2013/07/fb-category-frequently-asked-questions.html

Thanks amazon But in my daughters case I remember when I filed the I 130 I chose counselor processing- in 2006 I was not sure whether she would be in the US when the visa number got current. Now it so happens that she is on h1b visa. And she is in USA Obviously the case has gone to NVC - and from their email it's evident that they understand that it's possible that the principal applicant might already be in USA. And that's why they want me to inform NVC that we will go for adj of status. My problem is that I have already called NVC and told them, also written an email informing them. But how do I know for sure that NVC has transferred the case back to USCIS?

Thanks for more details. Since your daughter is in US, she can go for Infopass appointment. Infopass is where she can meet with USCIS officer face to face. So she should be able to get more clear answers from them. Please see link below for Infopass appointment website. It also has many other ways to contact USCIS. http://www.mygcvisa.com/USCIS/USCIS-Contact.aspx

Hi amazon Thanks for the info- we looked at the page to get the info pass- there we have a give a reason why she wants to meet an official and there seems to be nothing catering to our reason- can u help- what reason should she give. Also I wrote to NVC ( as was given in their email to me as I am the petitioner- they have written that I need to inform them if the beneficiary will do an adj. of status) but no reply as yet from them. It's been a week now Please advise Thx

You can select option you need more information NVC probably receive thousands of email per week. I would say wait for few more days.

Hi Amazon and all NVC replied to my email - they said that they have noted that the Principal App will adj status in USA and they ill keep the case pending till the time USCIS requests it from them. So I suppose its a waiting time now - we will file for Adj of Status asa the PD is current
