(I'm going for the IR-1 and blowing off the K-3. Even if it takes an extra couple months, it's worth it to not have to deal with USCIS again)

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Note:

Please fill out I-130, wait 6 months for approval, then 3 more months for an interview. (Unless of course we've bombed your country into the stone age, then you qualify for expedited processing.)

Welcome to the USA!!!

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Hi! That is great news! I have also filed for I-130 but mine went to the California center. I'm interested in knowing how long did it take for you to get ur approval notice(NOA2)?

Mine went through the Texas Service Center (not California), however if you look at my sig below, it shows how long it took between NOA1 and NOA2. Just under two months, but I also made sure to do everything in the CR1 guide here:

http://www.visajourney.com/content/i130guide1

I also made sure that I provided the translations for any documents not in English (it's required for the I-130 package).

I also provided about 12 pages of photos, everything from my wife and I on vacation to photos of me with her familiy members and her with my family members, all labeled with the occasion (and names/relationships), location and month/year.

Go through every form with a fine tooth comb, as if you're the person at USCIS going through the form. Make sure that there are signatures and dates, supporting paperwork and a cover letter. The more work you do now, the less chances there are for errors and RFEs (request for evidence) that would delay the process.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Mike

Correction on this, I must have set a field wrong in my Timeline page. Just looked at my NOA pages and it was California, not Texas. Sorry for the mistake!

Hi! That is great news! I have also filed for I-130 but mine went to the California center. I'm interested in knowing how long did it take for you to get ur approval notice(NOA2)?

I sent in my I-130 and CSC received it on March 11th (NOA1).then a couple weeks later sent in I-129f and got NOA1 on that too, since then they have touched the K3 3 times, then nothing for a month, then last week they touched I-130 for 2 days, then on the 13th , then we got a RFE for the I-130 and they touched both again today. We sent in everything but did not have the original divorce document from my husbands 1st marriage, but had the divorce document on his 2nd one and we were allowed to get married here in Michigan and they were told by a sworn statement from my husband that there was a divorce between him and his 1st wife, or he couldnt have married wife #2, then of course...me. Well, anyways more time added on..But good luck with yours, it shouldnt be long now as long as you dont have a husband with 2 prior wives..:)) and all paperwork was submitted correctly.
