NVC Filed Online Timeline
 
Well, after probably 8 years on and off this forum and lurking in between, my USC wife and I have filed I130 online in the past few days. I figured it would be nice to start a timeline page, assuming there isn't one already - sorry Admins if there is!

So, without further delay:

16 August 2020: I130 filed online on the USCIS website

Before anybody asks, wife is also a UKC! Good luck to all :)

I filed I-130 on line (USC/UKC) for my husband (Irish), we live in the UK, on 18th August.
Where were you assigned? We got Nebraska. Would be interested to see how our time lines go. Are you prepping anything whilst waiting?

I feel for you as Nebraska is very slow, when we filed in Nov 2018 it got sent to Nebraska and at that time it was showing a processing time of 6-8 month then it just got longer and longer to the point it was showing 12-15 month and that was before all this covid stuff. Hopefully it doesn't take that long for you as it's just a pain waiting and not knowing what is happening until you finally get a message saying it is being sent to NVC

Yes, I'm not best pleased but luck of the draw, sadly. Hoping we get lucky and it doesn't take that long. I think our situation is straight forward/simple but I don't know if that makes a difference. Guess there's nothing we can do but wait.

Not sure yet. I can see that USCIS processed the payment from DC but there's nothing we can see as to the allocated service center. Haven't started prepping yet other than lining up a joint sponsor for I864. How did you find out which service center?

Logging in on my.uscis.gov and looking at my receipt it says Nebraska Service Center down at the bottom. I am guessing that means we've been assigned to Nebraska unless all receipts say this. I would prefer the latter!

Ah, well it would seem that we don't even have a receipt...

OK, so we got some snail mail from USCIS today. Also Nebraska Service Center. I think the issue was that we forgot to provide the electronic notifications form so we didn't find this out as early as we might have done - doh!

16 Aug 2020: I-130 and I-130a filed online
25 Aug 2020: USCIS letter rx from Nebraska Service Center

Re: NVC Filed Online Timeline
 
Snap, our snail mail copy arrived in the post today. Comparing processing times for the various centres here, egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/, it seems Nebraska isn't so bad but we shall see!

Filed online 18 March 2020 straight to Nebraska.....still waiting but have noticed the processing timeframes have reduced since we filed which is a good thing for us all.

Re: NVC Filed Online Timeline
 
Ohhhhh....hopefully you should be hearing something soon. Guessing no updates at all since filing? Hopefully not much longer for you! Would be interested in any updates.

Re: NVC Filed Online Timeline
 
Hopefully and no nothing heard since the NOA1, however when we filed the processing time at Nebraska was given as 12.5 - 16.5 months for a US Citizen filing for Spouse, now I believe it is down to 7-9 months. Correction 6.5 - 8.5 months actually.

Three of us in the race now then! Here's to no RFEs or hiccups!

Approved 8 September, file now at NVC and welcome email received. So just under 6 months from filing the I-130. 😁

Re: NVC Filed Online Timeline
 
Congrats and your approval! Not too bad 6 months in a pandemic! Best of luck with the next stages and interested to see your timelines continue :)
