Hey all,

Not sure what's happening, we got the first confirmation that our check was received 5 months ago (it will be 5months on July 26), but we havent received any approval letter. Does it usually take this long? I was told the whole process is 6 months. We sent it to Vermont Service Center. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whoever told you six months for the whole process was a bit off base. The petition stage alone is taking 5 to 6 months now. You'll probably hear something from VSC within the next month.

Also I cant help myself, I found myself checking the status online several times a day and I have requested for them to email the confirmation to me, does anyone know if it comes authomatically so I can stop checking every hour.

Better sit back and enjoy the scenery. After the approval of the petition, you will still have a ways to go. Plus, petitions from Nigeria are usually subjected to administrative processing after interview. Hang in there... hang in there tight.

We took 6.5 months from NOA1 to NOA2.

Vermont is a little slower than California too.

Have patience, it will come.

We hit 5 months on July 5th ourselves. VSC's official processing time is now about 7 months. Clearly some people are getting them in less time, but if you don't, USCIS won't take action on your case until that 7 month period has elapsed. That is, unless VSC extends its estimated processing times once again. And really, why wouldn't they? They've got nothing to lose by pushing it off forever.

Sad, but apparently true.

It also took me 6.5 months to get NOA2. Engaging other people (Senators, congressman, InfoPass) didn't seem to do anything but make me feel like I was doing something. OP, good luck with the wait.

You know what? It is so depresing to hear of such lenghty wait times! I don't think that our forefathers meant for the "puruit of happiness" to be so terribly hard to achieve. It is sad... Might be one of the reasons why so many people decide to become illegal in this country, because doing it the right way gets harder and harder. It is terrible really :angry: We should be rewarded for doing it the right way not punished for it.

I know how you feel. And to make matters worst the timelines are moving farther and farther. So it seems like we are getting nowhere. Almost for each day that passes in real time VSC pushed your estimated date 2 days or more. Heck....in the past 2 weeks I saw my timeline move from the second half of August to the beggining of October.

I know it is only an estimate...........but it feels frustrating and even more when Vermont approved 2 petitions from May super fast and were not even expedite. Don't get me wrong. I'm happy for them because they breezed through what is normally the hardest part of the process.

Yes....I have to be patient. But it is still hard.

PEACE...................


When you love someone from the bottom of your heart; so much that you are willing to give your life for your loved one, time and distance takes a backseat. Only love prevails. And with love in you hearts you can overcome anything.
