Ok so every oen of us knows that this process can be fast depending on whos pile your application is in, its only been 70 days now and well no word yet, as is the case for alot of us. We all check the USCIS webpage daily for updates without a date change. Now I deffinitly did not include a cover letter with my app. Does that really matter? And who knows what else could be wrong with my pettition for K1. So really there is nothing to do but wait for an approval or a RFE. Wish I would have known this site before doing my petittion. So if there is any encouraging word or advice, throw it at me.

The Vermont Service Center is slow at the moment and with an increese of a month wow. And since I am on a special duty assignment for the Army. I cant even put in for leave to go visit my fience again. I need a 90 day window for leave and well I would like to take a week, even though i get 30 a year i can only take a week vacation every quarter because of my duty. So I am in a bind. Other then that this process is slow and tourtering.

So what is the percentage of a RFE anyways?

Every step of the process has minimum, average, maximum (forever) time frame and all depend on each individual case.

If it's only been 70 days since your NOA-1, then it's still early. Average time between NOA-1 and NOA-2 is about 90 days (could be less, could be up to 180 days).

There's no RFE percentage. It all depend on if all the requirements were satisfied...

Encouraging word/advice: be patient and wait.....

I imagine that our background checks have alot to do with it, not that I have ever done any thing wrong except for a couple speeding tickets, but mayeb because I have lived and worked out of the U.S before.....even though if they asked me to I would pull the same back ground checks that they do, would have saved them time...hahaha

You correctly pointed out in your own first posting that you filed with the VSC and Vermont is taking longer to approve the I-129F petition compared to the CSC. However, at 70 days you are very close or should be close to hearing something soon. I think 85-105 days was about the right average time for Vermont Service Center with a few faster and a few slower.

Good luck
