NOA2 90 days, nothing yet

Timeline

My fiancee and I sent our i-129f packet to NVC on 3/31/10 and received NOA1 on 4/6/10, dated 4/2/10. Since then, there has been no movement or "touches" on our case. I called and was told it was within the USCIS timeline and that we should wait onger. My fiancee is very impatient and told me to call and get a number from the USCIS customer service agent? What number could they give me and what difference would a number make? I have no idea what she is talking about. I have my EAC number off the NOA1 notice and use it to check updates on the USCIS website. The website still says 'initial review' and is dated 4/2/10.

Anyway, I have checked the Visa Journey forum and have seen people on here who have sent in their i-129f packet to NVC after us and have received NOA2 in as little as 43 days! One case i saw sent in forms on 4/2/10 (around the same time as us) and received their NOA2 on 6/22/10.

If there is a problem or an RFE, wouldn't we have heard something about it by now? Today is 90 days since we sent in our forms. Two weeks ago, the Visa journey timeline said that applications with an NOA1 date of 4/2/10 were being processed. Today, it says 4/26/10. Is this accurate or an estimation? How can I accurately find out what dates are being processed? Our forms were accurate and we checked them about 10 times. I have no red flags as far as criminal record, etc and either does she. Just wondering what could be taking so long while others are zipping right along. All the poeple who i checked got their NOA2 quickly were from NVC and fiancee from China province, like my fiancee. When i called, the lady was very vague, reading off a script and really didnt give me much information. If anyone has had a similiar experience please let me know.

Thanks

The official timeline for USCIS to process I-129F petitions is 6 month. So despite the fact that a lot of petitions are approved faster there is nothing you can do until those 6 month are expired. Calling them every day won't change a thing.

It is unfortunate but some people have to wait longer than others, so just be patient and it will come one day.

Good luck on your journey

The processing time have be readjusted again back to 5 months. Back in feb/march it was 5 months and increased to 6 months in April or thereabout. Now it is back to 5 months. I think they move the bar depending on their work load.

90 days. That's nothing. On 127 days here.

I think the country you're coming from has something to do with and the workload.

At least I'm making that assumption to feel better.

I figure since a lot of people come from Canada, it's a long wait to get that NOA2 lol...

Come July 25 though, I can officially yell at them to hurry the hell up if nothing has come in...
