My wife is currently pregnant and due at the end of November. We received NOA1 from the CSC for both her and our 18 month old son on March 30, 2009 but have not heard anything since then. Do you think there is any possibility left that they will be approved before she gives birth?

I should clarify... Is there any chance they will be granted their visas before she gives birth?

My guess is not. You haven't gotten NOA2 yet or gone through NVC. Montreal takes at least 2 months to schedule an interview.

According to the stats here (for the last 90 days) on this site from NOA1 to Interview in Montreal takes 396 to 437 days.

Montreal can give an interview 4-6 months after they get your case is what their papers told me when i got them.

not sure where you are going tho

Your I-129f was approved in 5 days from your NOA1 date.

Your interview took 67 days from your I-129F NOA1 date.

I think Montreal is the only office doing them in Canada now. This makes matters worse as even if she were to get approved quite close to due date and somehow managed to get an interview faster, she still would not be able to fly since airlines won't let you fly that late in the pregnancy (coming from Calgary).

This is just my PERSONAL opinion. Plan for your process to take the longest time, that way if it happens quicker you will be joyful. There is NOTHING worse than putting your hope in something only to find out your estimates were way off. I realize it's nice and all to hear, "There's always a chance" but DON'T count on that chance because looking at the stats there really isn't any chance at all.

Make plans to be with your wife for delivery in Canada.

Look at my spreadsheet.

There are 5 people who have spouses in Canada.

NOA1 Dates................ NOA2 Dates............. Interview Dates

2/7 ..............................3/7 (28 days)...................8/7 (153 days)

2/9...............................4/17 (67 days)..............??????? (still counting)

2/27.............................3/19 (20 days)................8/19 (153 days)

2/28.............................3/21 (21 days)..............??????? (still counting)

3/3...............................3/25 (22 days)...............8/19 (169 days)

Even if you were to get NOA2 TODAY and it only too 153 days to interview you are looking at December 23rd.

The February Filers were for some reason VERY blessed receiving NOA2's VERY VERY QUICKLY! Both CSC and VSC are over 100 days again.

It might be a bit of a stretch to hope for the visa by November. If you were to receive your NOA2 now, add 4 - 6 weeks for NVC processing and an average of 3 months for an interview date in Montreal. Unfortunately you will probably be looking later than November. :(

What you and your wife could do, is once you recieve notice that your case is at the Montreal Consulate, send them an e-mail stating that your wife is X weeks pregnant and due to health concerns and risks for herself and the baby travelling so late in the pregnancy, is it possible to have the interview moved forward. Also mention that this can be confirmed by her physician. The other option is to still inform the consulate of her due date and risks of travelling near her due date so that your not scheduled at that time for an interview and have to go through the hassel of having to cancel and re-schedule. The time lines are close for the two of you, but keep your fingers crossed, you never know.

I know that USCIS will not expedite cases based on pregnancy etc.., but once the individual consulates have the case, it is up to them if they will expedite or schedule interviews around a request if someone's health could be at risk. It is a possibility they will try and accomodate the request.

Good Luck and congrats on the 2nd edition :thumbs:

If your consulate is really France as your timeline says, then I'd say you have a chance. If it's Canada, then I'd go with the others. Did you try to send an expedite? Look at the first number of couple on my spreadsheets. Their consulate was France, and they also had an expedite. May be you could contact them and ask for advise? Good luck anyway, I understand your situation as I'm in the same ;)

why don't you try for an expedite? so that they hurry up and approve

but then i suppose at this stage, you're almost at your 5 month mark so it makes no sense

hopefully you will get your approval soon
