was under 21 when my mother who was then a green card holder filed a i130 petition , however we never received the approval notice because the post office would not deliver the mail if mailbox was broken . my mom no longer had legal council so she didn't know she needed to call and check info just assumed it took that long , as an adult i started researching and was able to obtain a copy of the approval letter and was told by uscis to contact the NVC . i received a reply that the documents where destroyed I'm assuming we took too long to response . my mother is now a us citizen , are we able to resubmit s new i130 ? can we have uscis send the original back to the NVC ? please help because my self and 3 of my sisters are in the same situations and have been in this country for over 15 - 20 years .
