I ask that question everyday..."what could I have done better or more to have mine approved within months," but it's what it is...the waiting game :whistle: .

You and I filed around the same time, so let's hang in there and pray we hear something soon. Today, I started a petty fight with my man for no given reason. We are so tired of waiting on someone to give us permission to be together, but nothing more to do but wait and stay in love.

So Good Luck to you and yours,we will be on the APPROVAL side soon :P

Hi want to try my shoes on? My wife and have been waiting 1 year already. I have been stuck at the NVC 3 months. My lawyer could of filed electronic processing and he dropped the ball. Talk about frustration. Yours will go by much quicker. Do something to take your mind off the situation.

Why have you been stuck at NVC for three months? I thought that was the quick part of the process..........we should have our documents in the next couple of weeks.

Every day processing time change, why some people got it in two month others says 5 or 6 month :blush::help:

For me, the wait was 150 days. Recently, for others, the wait has even been longer 6 or even 7 months (specially if you have to respond to a RFE). You can try to think positively by realizing that once your petition is approved, the longest part of the process will be behind you. I am now eagerly awaiting for an interview date and look forward to being with my fiance in 3 weeks (I will go visit for Spring break). Remember to keep collecting evidence (telephone and chat records, e-mails, letters, etc.) as you will need this evidence for the interview.

Best wishes! (F)


August 23, 2010 - I-129 F package sent via USPS priority mail with delivery confirmation.

August 30, 2010 - Per Department of Homeland Security (DHS) e-mail, petition received and routed to California Service Center for processing. Check cashed. I-797C Notice of Action by mail (NOA 1) - Received date 08/25/2010. Notice date 08/27/2010.

After 150 days of imposed anxious patience...

January 24, 2011 - Per USCIS website, petition approved and notice mailed.

January 31, 2011 - Approval receipt notice (NOA 2) received by mail. Called NVC, given Santo Domingo case number, and informed that petition was sent same day to consulate.

Called Visa Specialist at the Department of State every day for a case update. Informed of interview date on February, 16 2011. Informed that packet was mailed to fiance on February, 15 2011.

February 21, 2011 - Fiance has not yet received packet. Called 1-877-804-5402 (Visa Information Center of the United States Embassy) to request a duplicate packet in person pick-up at the US consulate in Santo Domingo. Packet can be picked-up by fiance on 02/28.

March 1, 2011 - Medical exam completed at Consultorios de Visa in Santo Domingo.

March 9, 2011 at 6 AM - Interview, approved!

March 18, 2011 - POE together. JFK and O'Hare airports. Legal wedding: May 16, 2011.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

It took us 5 months 3 weeks to get our NOA2. With the holidays I was giving them until the end of Feb then I was going to call but on Feb 8 when I opened my email there it was from USCIS that we have been APPROVED for the NOA2. I even had to go to the USCIS website to check for sure, then I texted my fiancee to make sure she was awake (which she wasn't) then I called her to let her know. Just be patiant and keep praying for everything. Good luck to you and yours.
