  1. You should be hearing from the NVC during the next few weeks.

    (213) 394-4554 x0 Mr. Shusterman is a former INS Trial Attorney (1976-82) with over 35 years of immigration experience. His response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.

  2. You should receive something very soon. I would follow up with USCIS and the NVC within a week or so since it has been a month and a half since you received the approval to make sure it was not sent to the wrong place.

  3. My colleagues are correct ... be patient .. things will start to arrive.
