Hi guys.. I am new to all this.. I have been reading a few forums, and found them very helpful.. I just want to thank everyone for their time and efforts in keeping everyone informed.. with out this i am sure many people would be so confused...

I mailed my i-130 for my husband in october 07 and finally got the NOA1 jan 11. 08

Now today jan 18. 08 I mailed out my i-129F.

Does anyone know an average wait time for NOA1 for i-129F? I sent mine to the VERMONT service center, since my receipt notice for i-130 says vermont..

These days are really hard but all I can do is keep patience.. thank you all for your help...

God Bless yall!
