OUR NOA1

My husband told me last night that we have our NOA1, its been more than a month since we submitted our I-130, he told me that he has been calling the military helpline for 2 hours coz the line is always busy but thankfully after talking to three different people a guy finally told him our NOA1, they would also be mailing something to my MIL's address in SC.

We also contacted a Senator from SC and we have been corresponding with a certain representative of Senator DeMINT, the last thing she told us is this:

I am still working with the National Visa Center on your wife's case. I
should hear information back from them on her current status within a
week and I will let you know as soon as I do. Thank you for your
continued patience and understanding.



If you are in the military and dealing with Immigration then you can call the helpline..

USCIS LAUNCHES TOLL-FREE MILITARY HELP LINE
1-877-CIS-4MIL Available to Help Military and Families with Immigration Questions
WASHINGTON – Members of the U.S. military and their families stationed around the world are now able to call U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for help with immigration services and benefits using a dedicated, toll-free telephone help line, 1-877-CIS-4MIL (1-877-247-4645).
“Thousands of immigrant Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines have made extraordinary sacrifices for America,” said USCIS Director Emilio Gonzalez. “As such, at USCIS, we are committed to exhausting every effort to ensure that the application process for immigrant service members is convenient, quick and secure. These brave men and women, and their families, deserve this service, and we are proud to assist.”
“This hotline honors the more than 40,000 non-U.S. citizens serving in the military today. If you are willing to fight and die for America, you should be able to become an American,” said Senator Barbara Mikulski. “I will continue to work to improve this process, because service members and their families have enough to worry about.”
USCIS customer service center specialists are available to assist callers Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. (CST). Callers will receive assistance with:
• Tracking their application for naturalization (Form N-400);
• Notifying USCIS of a new mailing address or duty station;
• Checking the status of an application or petition;
• Bringing a spouse, fianc√©(e) or adopted child to the United States;
• Obtaining posthumous citizenship for a deceased member of the Armed Services; and
• Submitting an application for expedited processing.
Service members and their families stationed in the United States or overseas may access the help line using the toll-free number, through their base telephone operator or using the Defense Switched Network (DSN). After hours callers will receive an e-mail address that they can use to contact USCIS for assistance. Operators will ask members of the general public to call our main customer service line: 1-800-375-5283.
USCIS is working with the Department of Defense to ensure the military community has accurate and up-to-date information about immigration services and benefits. USCIS offices and the designated point-of-contact at each military installation will receive information about the Military Help Line and other immigration-related information and resources geared specifically for the military and their families.
In addition to the help line, USCIS has developed a web page, http://www.uscis.gov/military that contains information and links to services specifically for the military and their families.

IR1 Petition

Last September 8 we submitted my Immediate Relative petition through PHILPOST (EMS) , Chicago lockbox received our papers on September 16. My husband will be returning from his deployment early next year, I hope I can get my VISA by that time. I have been waiting for this moment to come, my husband did submit a previous petition in 2006 when I was still pregnant but I told him not to continue it because I know that he will be deployed soon and I want to gave birth here.

Right now I'm just waiting for our NOA1, we are going to EXPEDITE our case because of my husbands deployment, Im hoping that they will grant our request and also Ive asked hubby to contact a Senator and they responded already.
Jaden's US passport will be here anytime now.

If you are a military spouse dealing with Immigration process now you can call the USCIS MILITARY HELPLINE.

WORRIED

I'm so restless this past few days, Jason's roommate left a message on my YM that he will be gone for a 5 days mission somewhere..
This is the longest time that we haven't had any communication ever, before whenever he is gone he always find ways to tell me that he is OK and safe..
I talked to his roommate last night he said that he should be back tomorrow, well i hope so because im so worried and I miss my husband so much.

I havent been online because I had to take my CPU to a shop so they can fix it, they had to reformat my computer. Its working perfectly now... :)
