Remember this is what they post as a guideline - when we applied the USCIS had 5 months posted which was what I planned for - it ended up 3 months to the day.

I always say - prepare for the wait and anything less is a pleasant suprise!

No, it's still 5 months, I've just checked, being surprised you said something about 6 months. For K1 Petitions processed in VSC and CSC. But the real processing times are: CSC - 2 months; VSC - 3 months. Or at least that's what I've seen from members that went through the process lately.

According to VisaJourney Immigration Timelines it is(check this link): http://www.visajourney.com/timeline/

IMO, it's an average of 5 months for all the applications. It's the same for N-400. :blink:

Now... there's a thing about USCIS.gov processing times: If your application remains pending beyond their processing times, you should call them. Otherwise, it's 2 months for CSC and 3 months for VSC.

But the fact that I have read so much doesn't make me an expert... :)

Whatever. :P Those processing times on the page you gave me are the same since... forever. I'm kidding, but it was December 2009 when I last cheked and it was the same '6 months', but petitions were approved in 3 months at VSC. And I know something about 5 months from USCIS.gov as well -> Left column, Before I file -> Check Processing Times -> Left column -> Check Processing Times again and then 'page down'. But those are not the real processing times, they are just USCIS National Goal - 5.0 Month(s), USCIS National Average - 5.0 Month(s), Vermont Service Center - 5.0 Month(s). Like I said before, if your application remains pending beyond their processing times, you should call them. Otherwise, it's 2 months for CSC and 3, for VSC.

I'll keep my first thought: Bernie knows better. ;)

As for the update, it says: Field Office Processing Dates for VERMONT SERVICE CENTER as of: March 31, 2010 just on top of the table.

My motto on USCIS timelines (and other sayings) - We don't know so we go with the flow! Expect the worst and hope for the best! Its better to get a pleasant suprise than be stressing endlessly (even though we all stress daily regardless). You can make me wait but you can't break my heart, my love is everlasting. I'm not to proud to cry but my tears shall water my soul and grow my strength. My hands my be tough and callused but when I hold you they will feel soft and gentle. hehe
