Hi everyone! I've been checking out the immigration timeline for i-130 and it says that NOA1 which date is july 31, 2011 is currently being processed now. how long does it really take for them to review the case? The other day it was July 25 that was being processed. Now it's July 31. Does that mean, that july 25 i-130's have a decision already? thanks!

Today I saw from immigration timlines that i-130's which date is july 31 2011 are currently being processed now. My question is, if my i-130 NOA1's date is july 31, 2011 and it is started to be processed today, how much longer will I have to wait before I get the decision. thank you

5- 6 months to process the case. EVERYONE is the same it takes 5-6 months to get the NOA2 and then you go to the NVC and process at the NVC. Go read the guides.

I've read the guidelines and I know it's for everyone. I think I just wasnt able to express my thoughts well.
But I am going to try again anyway. So please bear with me. I know it takes 5-6 months to receive a decision. But as I realized, they don't really start working on your case the moment an i-130 arrives in their office. I was just asking, from the time they start working on a specific case, (5 mos. is the standard waiting time I guess because they are giving way for backlogs). As of today, July 31,2011 is currently being reviewed. Since july 31 has just started being processed today, how many more weeks will it take for july 31 NOA1's to receive a decision. I'm not asking from when july 31 filed their i-130. I'm only asking from the time july 31 noA1's started being processed. I'm sorry I am not sure if I explained my side well. Thanks for reading anyway. :)

Hi! The time interval between the first notice (NOA1) and the decision on your petition (NOA2) is generally 5-6 months, although some have gotten their NOA2s in less than that amount of time. But what you're asking is what happens within that time interval, is that right? You want to know how long it takes from the time the adjudicator starts actually working on your case to the time he makes a final decision on it, and I'm not sure anyone outside of the USCIS can answer that. The processing dates that Visa Journey displays on the Immigration Timelines page are based on members' NOA1s, if I'm not mistaken. (Somebody please correct me if I am.)

uh you should have the NOA1 in 1-2 weeks of them cashing your check. If its longer then that you would have an issue. Then your case sits in a box until they reach it.

Hi Humanists! Thanks for the answer. :)

"You want to know how long it takes from the time the adjudicator starts actually working on your case to the time he makes a final decision on it"


--- You got that right! I was just thinking if there was an answer to it because the immigration timelines seem to be accurate. :)
