There was never any application filed for Juliana. There was only a correspondence sent to NVC, subsequent to the filing of the I-485 of her mother, Carmen, informing the NVC that Juliana was the child of the lead beneficiary, Carmen.
It should take about 6 months to a year to process the case, but she should be able to immigrate and get a green card when it is done.

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX your swift response.
Will you please respond to my concerns that I have been billed twice?
I have just rated you excellent a third time.
A follow-up question: On Form I-824, which of the categories, A-E is the appropriate category? The child who we're trying to bring into the U.S. is in Ecuador. The lead Beneficiary mother, Carmen, was granted LPR status after filing her I-485. The original Petitioner on the I-130 was Carmen's sister Gloria.
Unfortunately, this was the problem in the first instance. The child, Juliana, was NOT listed on the initial I-130 that was filed by her mother's petitioner/sister. The initial petitioner, Gloria (Juliana's aunt), filed the I-130 for her sister, Carmen (Juliana's mother). Carmen was granted LPR status here in the U.S., and now wants to bring her daughter into the U.S. as a derivative beneficiary. The child, Juliana, is still in Ecuador.
I selected D as well and believe that the child is eligible as well. That being the case, the "person filing the application" in Part 1 of the I-824 is the initial I-130 Petitioner, Gloria (the child's aunt), right? I'm confused, though, as to why there is direction, that if you chose C, it expressly asks you what the name of the child to follow is. D does not.
WHEW! Thank you. So, as to the second part of my question: the "person filing the application" in Part 1 of the I-824 is the initial I-130 Petitioner, Gloria (the child's aunt), right?
I'm so sorry, your answer didn't make sense. I distinctly asked if the "person filing the application" in Part 1 of the I-824 is the initial I-130 PETITIONER. You responded "Yes, because it says that "...my status has been adjusted..." THEN you say "so that means that it is the BENEFICIARY filing it." So, is it the PETITIONER of the original I-130 filing the I-824, or the BENEFICIARY of the original I-130 peitition who ultimately filed the I-485 and adjusted to LPR?
