Is it unusual that 107 days have passed, but the Vermont Service Center has not even touched my file??

Is there something wrong?

What should I do?


Dec. 28, 2009... NOA 1

Dec. 31, 2009... Touched

May 12, 2010... Nice guy at the USCIS mercifully sent a Service Request to the VSC to inquire about our petition

May 27, 2010... Received an e-mail stating that the VSC received the Service Request. Unfortunately, the e-mail also states that the processing time for service requests is 3 MONTHS!!

June 28, 2010... Heard from my senator that the USCIS is going to send me a RFE on July 1 asking for a certified copy of my birth certificate. Why do they have to wait until July 1 to ask for this??

July 13, 2010... Received an e-mail from the VSC explaining the delay in processing our petition. Apparently, the USCIS had put on hold all petitions from US citizens born with Puerto Rican birth certificates (like me). On July 1, USCIS headquarters finally gave clearance for these petitions to be processed.

July 26, 2010... Touch

NVC In: Mar 24, 2010

Is it unusual that 107 days have passed, but the Vermont Service Center has not even touched my file??

Is there something wrong?

What should I do?

my process took as follow:

I-129F was approved in 88 days from my NOA1

Interview took 150 days from I-129F NOA1 Date..

Perhaps, you may want to call them and find status.. Did you get any NOA2, have you received your new RDJ #?


"Peace is not the product of terror or fear. Peace is not the silence of cemeteries. Peace is not the silent result of violent repression. Peace is the generous, tranquil contribution of all to the good of all. Peace is dynamism. Peace is generosity. It is right and it is duty." -- NAPF page on Oscar Romero

Regarding calling them... It seems they don't want to hear from you unless it has been longer than the 5 months they say the process (from NOA 1 and NOA2) will take. Should I call and try to talk to a person anyway? I think I would have to "lie" to the automated answering system and tell it that I have gone past the 5 months before it will allow me to reach a real person.

To answer your other questions... I have NOT received the NOA 2 yet. I received the NOA 1 on December 28, and the file hasn't been touched since December 31. Also... I haven't received an RDJ number... I guess I get that when I receive the NOA 2?

Any advise would be appreciated.

We waited 116 days between NOA1 and NOA2. We got a touch just after the NOA1, and then nothing until we were approved. I know it's not what you want to hear, but sit tight for a little while longer. The good news is on its way!

6 Nov 2009: NOA1

2 March 2010: NOA2 (116 days)

14 April 2010: Interview (159 days) Approved!!

8 June 2010: Case transferred to CSC

10 June 2010: Biometrics completed

18 January 2010: Interview - passed! Card production ordered!

Our case took 5 months at CSC. We didn't even show up online until approval. If you call, they will just say you are within normal processing times. You will receive your RDJ number once the case has been sent to and processed by NVC after you receive NOA2. Cases seem to be moving faster than they were in our time, so your approval is likely just around the corner. For us the NVC and consulate process went pretty fast. It was just waiting for NOA2 that took forever. Good luck!

Hang in there, don't stress about this.

I don't think it is unusual. There is a whiners thread about it already...LOL. We're whining about CSC getting approved weeks ahead of us for a NOA2 in VT. Blargh on VT.

At this point in time, that is not unusual for Vermont (VSC). Additionally, you could go through the process and receive your NOA2 without ever having your file touched (although that is rare).

EDITED to add: While you are waiting, it would be appreciated by all members here if you could add your timeline. Thanks!

It is nice to know ( I am sorry to say this.....) that there is someone in the same empty boat as I am (a RumRunner reference from the Dec VSC thread). I am one day behind you brother. It is nice to hear everyone say that we should just wait and that we will get it any day now, but this really sucks. Especially when some people from December already have their interviews scheduled. In all honesty I think what has happened is that when K-1 petitions arrive in VSC, a few days from each month are handed to the one person at VSC who we all love. You know who I speak of. The one employee who has been there for 35 + years, has 3 months vacation, 21 sick days, 12 mental days, takes 2 hours for lunch, comes in late, sits next to the coffee station and LOVES to "chat" and tells everyone about their next excursion down to the city. They also have to leave early everyday to pick up the Grandkids from school. Basically the walking retired employee. Yup. That's right. Our petitions are sitting on the desk of someone who maybe gets in 4 hours of work a week. And that's on a good week.

So I guess everyone is right. All we can do is sit and wait and pray that the Grandkids don't get sick. :D

I think if the Grangkids get sick, he/she won't need to drop them off or pick them up from school. So shouldn't we hope the Grandkids do get sick.

Sorry. I hope VSC picks things up a bit.
