Let's get this thread rolling.

We sent our I-129F and documents on June 26th, and had the check cashed on the 2nd of July. Just waiting for the NOA1 in the mail now.

Hopefully we're all in for a smooth ride...but no doubt there will be alot of impatience and stress ahead. So let's stick together and ride it out as one!

July is the 7th month... that's our lucky number as well ;)

Well.... Wishing you and yours the very best. We are in the midst of getting ready to file our I-129F. Have you noticed here at the site and elsewhere that Form DS-156 will not open. About two weeks it did and now you cannot opn it.... ANYWHERE.... at any location. Could it be the form is being updated?

Thanks.

Hey there....welcome!

If you're filing for the K-1 then you don't need to worry about the DS-156 at this stage. That's further down the line.

This guide will tell you what you need to put together for the K-1 package for initial filing.

Just posted the I-129F... The wait begins :whistle:

Does anyone have any updates on processing time lines? I keep hearing conflicting info such as a 5 month wait at the Vermont center and now just read it has been increased to 7 months??

Welcome!

The process time for Vermont from Noa1 to Noa2 is around 120-125 days.... but you could get it sooner than that or later. So it really just gives a ball park figure to expect. Maybe 7 months would be for the entire process from Noa2 to POE though. But...as long as we all come in here and support each other, we'll try and make it a smoother ride for everyone! :thumbs:

Hi,

I am an ex-Brit (living in Dallas), who has been an American citizen for 3 years and my fiancee is a Venezuelan with permanent resident status in Canada - more complicated than most ! I sent in our I-129F package on 6/29/2009 and got the NOA1 receipt dated 7/6/2009, so we are on our way...

Ivan

Unfortunately our first application was never received, and we had to re-submit :( Our 2nd I-129f was sent in July 2nd. My fiance has been up in Canada visiting me, so not sure if it has been received this time. I hope that was our one and only glitch!!
