Congratulations to all of you for making past the first great hurdle - which is actually filing the petition. I'm glad that you've started this thread because the waiting game, especially for the CSC, can be both draining and sometimes demoralizing. I've found that the support of co-filer's to be a wonderful way to get through the ups and downs of this time. Good Luck to everyone and keep the discussion flowing.... :thumbs:

Just take it one day at a time and remember to breathe. :) I thought I would feel so much better once the petition was off...but really, that was just the beginning. When you feel bad, let yourself feel bad...and when you have a good day, don't feel guilty for it! It's ok to have a good day, even when you're waiting and you can't be together. We're all in this together and we'll make it through. :thumbs:

Hey stardusted welcome and I hope you have a smooth journey. I know what you mean by nervous. We sent ours off on the 30th of April and I'm still constantly trying to work out if theres anything we did wrong or missed out or anything remotely bizzare that will crop up and cause problems. :wacko: but I guess I'm just a nervous person. Someone has to only look at me and I feel like I've done something wrong even when I havent. :innocent:

Hey, great to have more company!

What you are waiting for next is your noa1 which a form of reciept from csc. I think it has noa1 on it in brackets and a numerical code for the form which I can't remember right now and on wrong computer to bring up the copy.

Vito is also in Cali, and he sent ours off on the 30th of April. The recieved it on the 1st may and generated our noa1 (this is the date it has on it) I didn't arrive at his until at least the 4th I think. After you have your noa1 its a waiting game till noa2 and from what I gather with csc its about a 4.5 to 5 month wait . I'm guessing that as there have been a few january guys approved this month. Hope this helps :thumbs:

I'm in .. we filed two weeks ago (May 5) and not a word back yet.. by mid week I'll call the bank to see if the check

has been cashed. We filed to Vermont as well

:unsure: I'm not sure about Vermont, I think they are taking a little longer than csc to dish out the noa1s, you are not the only vscers I've seen on here commenting about this. Look out for William wallace on here he has a may thread and filled and Vermont in early may also. Look in my profile and see if my post in his thread is still there. He was having the same problem. But the bright side you'll be looking at a lot shorter wait for your noa2 that us cscers as Vermont is way quicker on that. :thumbs:

Best of luck to all.

I think it's the proof of meeting/relationship that gets me most anxious. I keep thinking of *new* things to add to the application, and then keeping scanning and sending Chris more documents and I'm all, "Check your e-mail! Print those documents! Life and death!" I feel really nervous that I'm not the one mailing it off to CSC because I've been reading up like crazy on the process and Chris really hasn't. I find all sorts of new things to worry about all the time.

I find all sorts of new things to worry about all the time.

You know what? I was too! Vito even had 130 pages of skype chat that he didn't know what to do with. But the others were really helpful and said that the petition is to establish that you have met within the last two years and at the interview is when you establish bonafide relationship. So in the end we sent photocopies of my tickets from the last trip, copies of some tickets for his train with my name on from said trip, I think he sent a reciept of his trip when we first met and photocopies of the stamps and picture pages of my passport. Then we sent some photos of us together and I think in the end he did sent a small selection of the chat but not too much. I must admit I did find other bits I wish we had sent but It was too late by time I found it. If they need more they can rfe us. Worrying just gives you an ulcer.

get him to sign up to here if you want him to read up more.
