Another NOA2!

Timeline

I just received the NOA2 email from USCIS; 5 days before the 3 month mark. Now to await the actual paperwork and start preparing for the future. The time from NOA1 to NOA2 was a dead period for me. I had little motivation to do anything, since it could have been 5 months or more; I did not want to get my hopes up and start planning things with such an unknown variable.

But that's past now, and I'm freaking a beaker; so to speak. So many things to think about. So much Russian left to learn, money to save, rooms to clean. Egads.

Good for you!

Now you have to wait at least two more months for the interview. I hope you get it in early December, because having Christmas so close, you may have to wait until January ...

... No tax exemption this year :blush:

Looks like you'll be telling her to leave the "real winter" clothes at home pretty soon. Time to start cleaning the house and dumping all that bachelor stuff. Brad is right, the real fun is about to start. Those first few months are incredible for learning, teaching, exploring and just being together. Then it just gets better.

Make sure she has all the remaining documents, if any, from you and gets all kinds of documents translated. Don't forget shot records and any college/university records too. It can go a long way to making the overall transition easier.

Congratulations.

On Oct 15th, the NVC sent out a letter saying that they received the I-129F petition and that they will be forwarding the packet onto Moscow with a week. Sweet Jesus that was quick! I now have the NVC case # (MOS...); so we can hope to hear something from Moscow in a few weeks. So excited! :P
