NOA2 Email Received from CSC Today

29 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Today was the day we have been waiting for. I received the I-129F NOA2 approval email today while at work. When I saw the email was from USCIS, I was so nervous; worried it would say we were getting an RFE. Then I read that we were approved. I immediately called my fiancee to tell her the news. We are so very happy. I really hope she can be here for her birthday in just over two months.

I also looked on the USCIS website and saw that my case has been touched for the first time. My date moved from my NOA1 date to my NOA2 date without a single touch in 150 days. Even when sending a letter to USCIS for changing my fiancee's address and receiving a confirmation email from them, I never received a touch. Talk about keeping me in suspense.

Good luck to everyone else.
