  • Got green card, what's next?

    I've recently received my green card based on I130 petition (Married children of US Citizen).

    My wife was on original petition sent to Immigration on the beginning of 1998. She is still waiting overseas.

    I've sent I824 (Application for Action on Approved Application or Petition) for her, asking for sending all documents to US Embassy in the Country, she currently stays, and I got I797c (Notice of Action) from them.

    And, as always, silence after all.... no any word, any further explanation from them.

    I have two questions in this matter:

    1. Should I fill any more documents?
    2. Basing on ILW Forum members experience, how long is this process?

    Hi Jackie,

    When did you receive the Notice of Action? You could schedule an Infopass appointment to try and obtain the status on your case. Good luck!

          Hi jackie,

          I know what you mean...

          Please be a little patient - hopefully, some of the senior members get to answer your questions. As regards the length of the process, we don't have timelines here in the ILW. If you're interested to see how others who had the same situation as yours fared, you may want to try immigrate2us or visajourney (suggested by some other members here) because most posters have timelines there.
          Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, as long as ever you can.

              Why did not she got visa when you got in your country. Both visa could have been processed at the same time.

                  Is that a receipt or approval notice?

                  1. No until you are asked. However, you can try to send a copy of I-797 to the consulate in your wife's country. Some consulates will take it and send the further instructions to the beneficiary (about medical, police report). That way people buy some time... Not all consulates will do that as some prefer to wait for the formal notice from NVC.
                  2. How long it will take? A few weeks or months here, a few weeks or months there... It seams to me that papers are being processed in NVC in orderly manner. It depends a lot how busy the consulate is and how long it takes for them to notify the beneficiary...

                    Thanks to all of you for your help.

                    At least I know a bit more now.

                    It looks like I have to be very patient and wait. But I know from my own experience that if I won't bore a hole in Immigration's belly, I can wait forever.

                    I have to call them, see them and then asking, asking, asking.......

                    What's a **** life......
