Hiya,,

Can someone take a look at our time line i.e. dates and see if this is normal? the time between our NOA1(reciept) and our Request for Evidence seems abnormally long, I was wondering why we would not have been notificed at the NOA1 stage that we were missing details, to receive the RFE so long after our NOA1 seems strange...any other's expereince this? CSA did receive our RFE on January 25 and our status on USCIS indicates: Request for Evidence Response Review, which I have been told by a few members that this is very good, we should receive some news soon....C'est vrai?

Now I have looked everywhere on this site for advice on this, and I do get re-directed to the Canuck thread, however everything it the forum is not current, posts from 2006 am I missing something?

And would love to hear back from those who have had Montreal Consulate interviews recently? Anyone out there??? to give me hope???:innocent:

Your NOA1 is only a receipt to let you know they have received it not processing it. That follows on after. Yes RFE's can happen anytime there is no standard time schedule that they will send you one once they start on your application. We started our129f in the Feb 2010 and did not get an RFE till 11th June sent it back 16th June express and they emailed me 18th and we were approved 22nd June.C'est magnifique

Well, I don't know about RFEs as we didn't get one, but my timeline is in my sig to give you an idea of what we had. I checked the interview booking times yesterday, and the next available one was April 27th. So apparently we really lucked out with ours, so I wouldn't hold that as an expectation.

how was the interview?

Very anti-climatic. Most of it was waiting, and the interview itself was about 5 minutes long. Asked a couple questions about where he lived, what he did for a living, what I was going to do for work when I got there, if I was sure I wanted to move to Arkansas =P. Took my fingerprints, and said as long as I wasn't married (I had given my e-mail with my soon to be last name in it, because my original one is from when I was 12 and embarrassing, but I didn't want to change it just to change it AGAIN after we got married...so she gave me a bit of a side eye for that, lol.) and that I hadn't been deported (I had been turned away, but never deported) then I was in! And that was that.

just to answer the question why it took so long to get the RFE . . generally when you file you get your receipt as soon as your application is given a cursory review on arrival - is there a correct amount of payment enclosed, is the application form present and complete and is everything signed. Then it gets forwarded to a holding area where it just sits in a pile somewhere waiting for its turn in line to come up for review. Outside of that basic review on arrival your application doesn't get reviewed for content until after it has finished waiting in line. The good news is that when you get an RFE it means that your application has reached the head of the line and an adjudication officer is actually looking at it. The bad news is that there is an RFE that you now need to address. The good news is that once you get the requested information back, your application is already there waiting for your reply and processing continues right away. Generally you will hear something very shortly after the RFE is returned - and if the RFE is satisfied, it is usually an approval.

Unfortunately, applications spend a heck of a lot of time just waiting in line :( throughout the whole immigration process.
