How long does an I-129f really take ?

I just checked http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/men...0004718190aRCRD

:crying: And it is really a bad new that average processing times for certain application types may grow longer. In particular, naturalization applications filed after June 1, 2007 may take approximately 16-18 months to process.

:help: Now I want to ask how long an I-129F will really take? USCIS received my paperwork of I-129F and some other files and noticed it in September 2007.

if you filed back in september, you're very close to getting your approval. it all depends where you've filed your I129F. VSC seems working faster than service center in California. we filed Sept6 (with VSC) and got our approval last week.

good luck ;) !

That comment ont the website says "naturalization" will be delayed. Naturalization pertains to green cards and citizenship not I-130's and I129f's

Ahh - that is for naturalization - if you want to become a USC - that won't affect you just yet :) the I-129f (the first part of the K-1 process for me - not sure if it is used in other visas - am pretty certain it is) took me about 6 months all told - that is from the day we sent the petition to the day it was received at NVC and we got our new case number :)

If you are with Vermont they seem to currently be processing (but not always) I-129fs in around 90-100 days - that is I am seeing a lot of approvals from people who have taken that long - again, they may still be playing catch up with some files. If you are with California... well I don't really know what to say! It seems to be just as terrible as it has been since the fee increase last summer so it might take you around 5-6 months... again - this is just my opinion/estimate ;)

Naturalization has nothing to do with green cards.

belong to california center. :crying: have to wait for a long time!

Welcome to the club of the impatient, grumpy, p1ssed off CSC filers. How I wish I could have filed in Vermont. But I can't. So I deal with the fact that while we were hoping to be together this summer, it looks more like fall. However, an Autumn wedding is beautiful. At least you filed in September. So you should be getting your approval soon (relatively).
