NOA1 to the NOA2

11 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

Many people look like their Noa2 comes about a month after the NOA1....We are like a month and a half. California service center....for I-130. I am so frustrated. I can't seem to figure out an estimate of how long this is going to take. NOA1 was received in early November. Anyone in the same boat as me??? I am so impatient.

Averages do tend to fluctuate, which is why the USCIS says that it could take up to five months to process. It's all but impossible to know exactly how backlogged they are at any given time. Judging by recent data, it should be very soon for you. Just be patient, and prepare yourself for a few more waits even after you get your NOA2. I'm not saying that to be cruel...just being realistic. The embassy step is currently the one taking the longest. NVC will take about five or six weeks.

Good luck!

Am I an idiot or does that not address my question at all?? It seems to show time between Noa2 and beyond....maybe I am just dumb.

No, you're not dumb! I think Flames posted that just to show how long the process takes after you get your NOA2.

Six weeks between NOA1 and NOA2 isn't too bad yet, despite what other averages have been. I'd give it a couple more weeks before contacting USCIS about it.

Thanks...oh I know there will be many more periods of longer waiting. I appreciate your input Wyatt's Torch. I guess I am just wishing for signs that ours will be lucky. I hate living this life of suspended animation....hoping for Christmas miracles I suppose. I can't believe how stupid this whole thing is. Why can't their be easier routes for legit families to be together? Sorry for griping...I was just looking at other people's happy timelines and wondering why not me....

They still seem to be working through the September filers; all of us but one who filed in October are still waiting. They seem to have slowed down over the last couple of months. We're hoping they catch up after the holidays again.

Ok ValerieA that gives me an idea...thanks for response. I am just chimping out a little before the holidays. Feeling a little crazy is all! Best to you.

I am in the same BOAT!!! I also post a thread very very similar to yours about 10 days ago. I am 90+ days now for NOA1. I did see a lot of 30day NOA2 timelines also. BUT the normal from the CSC is 5 months :angry: WAITING WAITING WAITING TIRED OF WAITING.
