FBI Investigation for I-864 and/or I-864A.

Houston, TX |

Does Immigration Officer always seeks help of FBI for confirming the trustfulness of I-864 and/or I-864A?

I have submitted my I-864 and I-864A since last 24 days but still I didn't get any reply. One of my friend told me that Immigration Officer must send your papers to FBI for further verification and it will take 40 days approx. Is it true?

  2. No, it is not true.
