Default Do we have to have a receipt to send in K3?

My husband sent in the I-130 Petition on Sept 3rd (TSC received and signed for it on Sept 4th) and they haven't sent us our 1st NOA or cashed the check. Can we send the I-129F (K3) to Missouri without the receipt?

Nope...must send a copy of that receipt to the Missouri office or they will
return your package. It will take a few weeks or more to get it and if it
has been almost a month since they received it, I would be on the phone
calling just to see what was going on. I know they are and have been slow
in getting out the 1st NOA. It never hurts to call....just keep trying if
the line is busy.

Hmmmm, I was just reading that some people did not have a receipt....but it
plainly states that a copy of the receipt must be attached....now I am
confused.

This is from this web site:
http://www.immigrationlinks-
.com/news/news1450.htm


"""Must submit a copy of Receipt Notice (Form I-797) or other proof from the
INS for a pending or approved Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative.""


Material needed when filing the Form I-129F with Immigration Services

"The I-129F for the K-3 member must be completed and signed by petitioner.
" A separate I-129F should not be filed for K-4. The MSC is not authorized
to process separate I-129F petitions for K-4 children. Any K-4 children
must be listed on the
reverse side of the I-129F K-3 Petition.
"If the I-129F includes children (annotated on the reverse side of the form)
who have a relative visa petition (Form I-130) that is approved or still
pending, a copy of the birth
certificate is not required for MSC processing.
"Must attach correct fee.
"Must submit a completed and signed Form G-325A.
"Must submit ADIT-Style Photos (2): One for the petitioner and one for the
beneficiary.

"Must submit a copy of Receipt Notice (Form I-797) or other proof from the
INS for a pending or approved Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative.

"If the relative visa petition (Form I-130) is approved or still pending for
a spouse, submit a copy of the marriage certificate. This document is
needed to establish place of
marriage.
"Submit copies of legal documents reflecting any name changes (for example;
marriage certificate, adoption decree, or court order).

This is what I would go by and hey, if there is someone to tell you, you
don't have to have it, you could try it.......I waited though and sent a
copy with mine.

It is a bit confusing, but the key phrase appears to be "from the INS" - in other words, you need some proof from INS that the I-130 has been submitted.

It also seems as if the only proof is the NOA.

One lawyer I contacted suggested that the NOA can take up to a month or more to receive.

The I-130 was submitted in May, and the I-129F in July. I am awaiting what I hope will be good news - I can't wait for my husband to join me.
