IR1/CR1 Timeline for Vermount -

Timeline

Hello,

I am new to this site and so a little bit confused. I have submitted all my application through my lawyer.

I am a US citizen and my wife is from India. We got married in March and i got my I-797C notice date on the form is April 29.

I am wondering what would be the next step in this process.

My lawyers have said that it take more than 7 months to get IR1/CR1 but i wanted to see if anybody has got a correct time line for getting this IR1/CR1.

Thanks,

You probably didn't need a lawyer for this. But hey, it's your money. You should get your USCIS approval in about 5/6 months. That's the official stance. But in reality people have been getting their USCIS approval in about 2/3 months. But recently it slowed down a bit so. It's more like 3/4 months now. Once you get that you will have to dance through the NVC, which should probably not take more than another 2/3 months if everything is set. VSC is slower than CSC. So yours might take a bit longer than what I'm estimating.

Even though you are using an attorney you might want to review the guides so you know what to expect as you go through the process. Good luck!

Thanks for your immediate reply.

I have the following questions -

1. Does USCIS approval mean NOA1 and NVC approval mean NOA2?

2. Is I-797C, which i has a notice date of April 29, mean NOA1?

Again thanks for this information

No, the NOA1 is acknowledgement of the receipt of your petition by USCIS; the NOA2 is the approval notice of your petition at USCIS.

NOA-1 = Notice of Action Form I-797C (Receipt Notice)

NOA-2 = Notice of Action Form I-797C (Approval Notice)

if there are no complications in your case, then you could have done it all yourself rather than a lawyer. Lots of folks found lots of problems when they used lawyers. in any case, i think the lawyer's time line is about right. while lot of folks are getting their uscis approval in an avg of 3-4 months, it took me 5 months and 10 days to get mine (ie for my wife). then another 3 months thru the NVC and the interview. so total time for us was 8.5 months. nowadays i'm noticing that its taking 2-3 months; i hope it is short for you. you can check the time it takes these days in the processing times link on the top panel. good luck :thumbs:
