Timeline

I received my NOA1 for our I-130 on Dec 31, 2007. On Feb 24, 2008 I got a note saying our case was now at the Vermont Service Center (we filed in Texas and it was sent to Vermont). I was looking at Delicia's timeline spreadsheet for the Vermont and California Service Centers and noticed that everyone else who received their NOA1s got NOA2s 1 to 2 months ago. Its been 118 days since we received our NOA1 and we still havent heard anything, is this something to be concerned about? I dont really know if its outside of their (USCIS) "processing" times or not. Is there anyone else who received their NOA1s in Dec 2007 that have not yet received their NOA2s?

Timeline

I can't tell from your timeline which service center is processing your application, but USCIS posts its timelines here. CSC is on Sept 5 and VSC is on July 30. Not much you can do until they get past that date (go by the date you mailed your application, not your NOA-1 date).

I show 3 outstanding August filers and 5 outstanding Sept filers (including yourself).

My husband called USCIS on Friday about our files as we filed I-130 in October 2007 and 1-29F Jan 2008 as we were caught up in the backlog and we are still waiting for K3

The Immigration officer he spoke with was nice enough and said we will probably be adjudicated in 5 to 7 weeks as Vermont are working in August / Sept so we are hopeful to see approval this month or may. It is unfair as we know a couple that got approval and she filed in Nov 2007 a month after us, we are pleased for her and for anyone getting approvals but we'd like to see more movement on the ppl left behind ! :)

Here's hoping it will pick up speed soon because it feels like an eternity !

I am hoping to be with my husband for our 1 year wedding anniversary which is August 15th fingers crossed I get there...we are going on mini cruise to Bahamas somethng to look forward too :)

Good luck to you and all waiting at vermont service centre

Hi Michelle - I'm an Oct filer too but at Vermont :(

Are you thinking that we could get through the whole process by August? I was working on the idea it would be more like Oct/Nov now. August would be great.

Hi Lynn

Our files are at Vermont too so we seem to be in the same boat...I know London are pretty fast at getting Appointments set once your file gets to the Embassy so as soon as u see Approval ( NOA2) and your file is at NVC you can be sure it will be in London pretty quickly

London do tend to work on things quickly ...medial and interview etc... I reckon if i get approved in May i will look to have Embassy appointment by mid July or end July this is assuming that we get approval :)

So i will be looking to get out to Florida for my 1st year wedding anniversary. there is no reason why we should not get through this by August, after all, we are hitting our 6 month now and my husband will be Calling USCIS and our Attorney will be pushing for answers as to why we have not been adjudicated especially since there are others that filed after us and have been approved so i don't worry too much i think We can look for approval end of May at the very latest :) This is only going by the timeframes the Immigration Officer at USCIS told my hubby on Friday.

It will happen soon :)

Hang in there :)
