Why Vermont?

Me and my fiance are filing for a fiance visa.

My fiance lives in Dallas, Texas, but our case is being processed in the Vermont office. Why is this?

Looking at the number of cases, I see that there are a lot more processed in Vermont than in Texas. Wouldn't this mean that Texas would be faster to get it approved? How do they decide where to process your case?

On the USCIS website it says our application was recieved on June 2nd. Still says initial interview.

How long should I espect until we get out NOA2 approved?

NOA1 date June 2nd 2010

NOA2 date June 24th 2010 (!!!)

From my understanding the only two Service Centers that process 129-f petitions are California and Vermont. I could be wrong, but I believe that is why your case was sent to Vermont.

From what I have seen you are looking at 2 to 3 months for an approval, but it can take as long as 5 to 6 months...Good Luck

Because that's where I-129F cases from Texas petitioners are processed.

Question was "Why Vermont, not Texas?" Answer is, "Because that's where I-129F petitions from Texas get processed."

Vermont = VSC

Funny thing is that soon, the mailing instructions will be to Texas again, through a lock box and on to VSC or CSC after "intake".

They are now sending I-129F petitions to a center in Texas for "intake". After intake, they will still go to Vermont or California. Soon the instructions will be updated so petitions are mailed directly to a Texas address but the case numbers and actual processing after intake will be in Vermont or California.
