So I was just wondering about something. We had sent in our I-129F and had it sent back to us because we forgot to sign a form. We signed the form and mailed it back the same day overnight shipping. They had us send it back to the Texas Service Center rather than the Vermont one. It said to mail it to this one instead of the other one. It's been 6 days and they still have not taken our check or we have not heard anything about our Noa1 online. We are just wondering what could be going on? Thanks

The Texas Service Center is processing some of the overflow from Vermont. They've been sending cases down there lately to get things rolling. It took me roughly 6 days from the time they received my packet before they opened it and cashed the check. I didn't see the check hit my bank until 2 days after they cashed it. You'll probably get the NOA1 hard copy within a few days after the check hits your bank. If you're lucky, you'll see a case number on the back of your check when it's cashed (if you get check copies on your online banking feature).

I'm looking at your timeline and you've got an informal wedding planned in Russia in July. You do realize that if you get married before you bring her here that she's no longer a fiance, she's a spouse and therefore the K1 is null and void, right? Be very careful there. Some religious ceremonies aren't considered legal in other countries, but if you bring wedding photos back in her luggage, etc., you might have problems with the immigration officer at her POE.

Hope you get your NOA1 soon! Good luck!

Thank you for the information.I figured we should just wait a few more days and see what happens but I wanted to see if anybody on here had any information.

So...informal is meaning that we are not having an actual ceremony and getting married. We are just dressing up as though we are getting married and going to the reception. So we're not actually getting married, just kind of pretending we are for her family over there since they won't be able to make it to the wedding here.

How is your wedding going to be? Formal or informal? And why in Russia? since neither of you are from there...?

This 'overflow to Texas' started in Mid May - and there's not enough 'data' collected yet to give you some tight estimate - but -

Expect to wait up to 30 days on the NOA-1. That's normal, as well. If it comes sooner, hey ! it's a blessing !

Hang in there !

We're not having a wedding in Russia! I'm sorry, you must have misunderstood. This has just been a topic on here recently that others have gone through. My fiance and I are having a wedding here in Oklahoma City after he arrives. He wants to go straight from the airport to the courthouse and get married on paper day 1 so we can start the AOS process asap, but we'll have an actual wedding with family and friends about a month later. (Christmastime, we hope).

Good luck, again. Hopefully the Texas overflow will get you processed faster. My packet is still in Vermont, as far as I know.
