Hey guys,

Go here: http://www.visajourney.com/timeline/monthly_filers.php?form=1&visa=1&scenter=3&option=1&sortby=2

and you'll see the most recent approvals. Seems to be a mix of Sept and Oct with some random Nov thrown in. But Sept is only a little more than 50% finished (you'll see in the chart on the right. Ignore those that show some percentages of March and April done---basically all of those are CSC filers who don't understand that the Texas Lockbox is not TSC and no amount of pleading will get them to change their timelines.

Get ready for a gut-punch: they're not transferring from TSC to CSC at all. They're routing ALL new petitions to CSC instead. Basically the Lockbox is doing what they should have been doing all along: routing based on who has the shortest line. So that will (theoretically) prevent any future HUGE discrepancy between the centers but will do nothing for those already in line at TSC. Basically it's like.....at the supermarket. The line at the regular register got really long, so the express register (for 15 or fewer items) is now allowed to take everybody. But no one can switch lines not matter how long you've been there already. Yaaaaay USCIS. Management at its finest.


Marriage/ AOS Timeline:

23 Dec 2015: Legal marriage

23 Jan 2016: Wedding!

23 Jan 2016: "Blizzard of the Century", wedding canceled/rescheduled (thank goodness we were legally married first or we'd have had a big problem!) :sleepy:

24 Jan 2016: Small "civil ceremony" with friends and family who were snowed in with us. December was a bit of a secret and people had traveled internationally and knew we *had* to get married that weekend, and our December legal marriage was nothing but signing a piece of paper at our priest's kitchen table, without any sort of vows etc so this was actually a very special (if not legally significant) day. (L)

16 Apr 2016: Filed for AOS and EAD/AP (We delayed a bit-- no big rush, enjoying the USCIS break)

23 Apr 2016: Wedding! Finally! :luv:

27 Apr 2016: Electronic NOA1 for all 3 :dancing:
29 Apr 2016: NOA1 Hardcopy for all 3
29 Jul 2016: Online service request for late EAD (Day 104)
29 Jul 2016: EAD/AP Approved ~3 hours after online service request
04 Aug 2016: RFE for Green Card (requested medicals/ vaccination record. They already have it). :ranting:
05 Aug 2016: EAD/AP Combo Card arrived! (Day 111)
08 Aug 2016: Congressional constituent request to get guidance on the RFE. Hoping they see they have the form and approve!

K-1 Visa Timeline:

PLEASE NOTE. This timeline was during the period of time when TSC was working on I-129fs and had a huge backlog. The average processing time was 210+ days. This is in no way predictive of your own timeline if you filed during or after April 2015, unless CSC develops a backlog. A backlog is anything above the 5-month goal time listed on USCIS's site

14 Feb 2015: Mailed I-129f to Dallas Lockbox. (L) (Most expensive Valentine's card I've ever sent!)

17 Feb 2015: NOA1 "Received Date"

09 Sep 2015: Consulate received :dancing: (32 days from NOA2)

11 Sep 2015: Packet 3 emailed from embassy to me, the petitioner (34 days from NOA2).

18 Sep 2015: Medicals complete

21 Sep 2015: Packet 3 complete, my boss puts a temporary moratorium on all time off due to work emergency :clock:

that is a horrible news :(

I hope we will be approved in August...

I filed two weeks after you did and I'm not expecting to hear from USCIS until late September. At the earilest. I pray that I am very, very wrong. But my NOA1 date plus 217days (the current average, based on this: http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1historical) is 9/21 :( We don't have too much reason to think that they'll speed up significantly. But here's hoping for a nice surprise.

Good news is that two weeks before when I expect to hear is early September, which is only a week or two after August. The bad news is that there's still NVC stage and Counsulate stage after that. And I have a sneeking feeling that the backlog is about to get shifted to NVC....

No! I refused to accept this option. I am in US in August. OMG, 217 days, it is TOO long!!! I will be uneployed from June 1st, I can`t wait longer then 3 months, I will go crazy!

Sorry :( I completely understand. We're in a very similar boat ourselves (employment and money and what we'd expected vs the reality of the situation). It's the worst. Join the February TSC thread (warning: stay away from the general February thread, it'll just get you more upset), and join us in trying to be hopeful that the wait time will reduce to around 150 days or so. Then you'd have a chance to immigrate before the end of August, as long as the NVC stage and Counselor stage take the about 60 days they're supposed to.

Personally, I'd rather set myself up to deal with doomsday and get a happy surprise when things go smoother. I'm just hoping for immigration to happen for us in this calendar year so that we can get married in 2015 (tax break!). Even then my my math, we'll be cutting it very close. So...here's hoping TSC speeds up!

Not helpful. HOPEful. There isn't anything anyone can do to change the situation anymore. A lot of people here worked really, really hard with petitions and calls to congress and all sorts of advocacy to get USCIS to do something to balance out the processing times between TSC and CSC. This was the change they made (diverting all new petitions to CSC) and it's pretty much the end of the road.

It will, in the future, prevent the centers from being so imbalanced. But it won't solve the problem for anyone currently in line. We "won" the war but lost the battle. Part of me things that USCIS was mad at being called out the way they were and did this to thumb their noses at us. But that would also assume that USCIS is able to properly plan and execute anything. Which is....doubtful.

Unfortunately you don't have an option except to wait. I would start looking for a temp job if you need the money. This is why they say not to make any major life changes until you get your visa in hand.

Well I'm at 200 days now and I can guarantee you that not making major changes is not always in our hands. I've been without a work since February since my employer couldn't wait without knowing when I'm leaving for good any longer and he had to start looking for a replacement for me. As far as a part time job is concerned that's extremely scares here where I'm from let alone if you have children it's basically impossible for many reasons. So yes I feel u guys. No fun at all! My children for instance cannot be enrolled at school and have missed so much work! It's just one huge scr&w up! Anyhow just hope and pray we get our noa2 soon! Good luck to everyone here also!

I do not know how you folks stuck at TSC is maintaining your sanity. We were 186 days at the ole VSC, and it put us crazy, so the numbers I am seeing way over 200 days is absurd to me.

It would seem to me the only people to benefit would be the "new people that come to TSC".,.,., if an when they ever get caught up.

USCIS should have re-routed these TSC petitions to CSC, 10 months ago, when this back-up started.,.,.but I heard an interview a few months ago, from the head of USCIS, that the approval times were virtually the same at TSC and CSC, what a load of ####### that was!

The "typical" US Government at its best, and we have about two more years of this kind of thing happening, until another person is running this country, from either party, or an Independent. Anything would beat what we have!

I feel strongly about my feelings here, but if it is "over the top".,.,.,., MODS.,.,please remove at your discretion.

I haven't even been at this all that long and I can tell you that I am most certainly not maintaining my sanity. Just knowing what lies in store, and the fact that we might not even make it to POE in this calendar year is really....awful. I'm going to visit at least once during this process, but that is neither easy nor cheap (as I'm sure we're all well aware).

It's not the wait itself so much as it is having made some critical timing decisions all based on what USCIS/State claim the process is like, and having it be all wrong. (Nothing like wedding planning or plane tickets, but other things that basically---I could have filed in October/November and just didn't for reasons both personal, logistical and the fact that waiting a few extra months for a process that is supposed to be no more than 8 months total didn't seem bad. If I'd known we'd be pushing right up toward the year mark....nope).

It's also the fact that I'm pretty sure many of us wrestled with whether to go the K1 route or the CR1. The K1 has distinct disadvantages associated with it. Namely, the overall cost is nearly double, and the beneficiary does not immediately have a green card or even a work authorization. But, in the interest of speed, we were willing to make the financial and personal sacrifice to go this route. (Personal sacrifice= beneficiary's family can't attend wedding for visa reasons; beneficiary will face months of unemployment which is not always about money--it's about feeling useful and adjusting to your new life). And now it looks like a fair few of us would have been just as well served going CR1....and saving money and getting a green card at POE to boot.

And also note: not every couple actually had CR1 as an option. If it is a same-sex couple and the beneficiary is coming from a country that does not recognize same-sex marriage, they MUST go K1---with the extra fees and no work authorization. To then be slapped in teh face with this "oh, now we're throwing you in a pile to wait for eternity while folks who just happened to live one state over will be handled next week"---criminal.

And the unequal treatment with CSC. That's the mind-blowing part. If it was ALL K1s backed up....ok, fine, all part of life. But the fact that I've paid my money just like everyone else and will most likely be getting *literally* a tenth of the service speed from USCIS is crazymaking. Then to basically be called crazy and a liar to boot, from the very people who are supposed to be helping (USCIS, congress, etc). Well, there you have it.

PLEASE NOTE. This timeline was during the period of time when TSC was working on I-129fs and had a huge backlog. The average processing time was 210+ days. This is in no way predictive of your own timeline if you filed during or after April 2015, unless CSC develops a backlog. A backlog is anything above the 5-month goal time listed on USCIS's site
