I just got a text saying that our I-130 was approved. I AM THRILLED!!! They received the notice Oct. 20 and they sent the petition on Feb. 10th so that is a little less than 4 months. We were at Cal. Service Center. Have any other Oct. filers received their NOA2? I'm so happy but it is a bit bittersweet because I know some people that have their files at Texas Svc. Center before me have not received their NOA2 yet. Oh and we only had 1 touch and it was a few days after they received our I-130.

2 questions. Have any Oct. filers with California received their NOA2? Has anyone filed prior to October not received their NOA2 yet?

Soo happy and I can't wait for EVERYONE to have their loved ones with them, not just the approvals.

Thanks!! I read that they are trying to make the NVC go faster. CSC is doing really well, it is Texas and Vermont that is super slow for some reason, even though the timeline on USCIS says otherwise.
