As much as we understand your anguish and helplessness on being picked on by VSC, this process just does not have any rhyme or reason to it.Some people have to wait longer for it either for more background checks or God knows what,while some have a luckier stint with the service centers.I know of a few people from as far back as August 2009 still waiting and there could be more.

You cannot do much before the 5 month time-frame is up.After that you could initiate an enquiry or get your congressman involved.

Good Luck and hope your approval comes anyday now!

Also waiting on the NOA2, granted we got an RFE a while ago but it's been over a week since they began processing again so we're feeling hopeful.. best of luck to all of us Jan filers still in the dark. We'll make it through eventually.

Met online in 2002 as friends. Fell in love in 2005. Got engaged in 2010.

K-1 Journey, January 2010-July 2010:

NOA1: January 29. RFE: April 21. NOA2: June 4. Interview: July 15. Visa in hand: July 20. POE: July 22.

July 24, 2010: Married in front of 150 of our loved ones on a beautiful, sunny day. Living happily ever after and oh so thankful that 5 years of a long distance relationship and 7 months of a visa process is condensed into one line.

Wedding pictures! Because I'm shameless. http://s956.photobucket.com/albums/ae47/AmeriDaneWedding/

We are also still waiting. I have an upgrade on 2/26/10 from where I submitted an address change, but nothing since that. Do they not still do the "touch" thing when they handle a case? If this is true, I haven't even been moved from off the shelf shine I changed my address. Do they work on these things w/o letting us know? Thanks

Our NOA1 was two days after yours. When I saw our time slip from an expected 71 days to 90ish, it was very hard! Hang in there! Maybe call or send an email, and ask for the current status.

Now, we are in NVC limbo...Our letter was dated 5/1, but our number is still not in their system!

Good luck!

We are still waiting too! Maybe all of our files are sitting on the persons desk who went on vacation or something???

Good luck to everyone. Hopefully we all get some good news soon!!

Well, maybe so, but I hit the website last night, as I always do, only to find out that I had been locked out. Evidently the systems down, or at least that's the answer I got when i call them tnis morning. Maybe today it'll be back up.
