Update from supervisor at Vermont Service Center

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody

We reached the 5 month point on our application 2 days ago and our lawyer contacted VSC and spoke with a supervisor to ask for a 'Service request'. The response was as follows:

'The Vermont Service Center is currently working on 08/21/2011 applications, which is 23 days away from your date of 09/13/2010. The supervisor asked that VSC be given those days to get to your application before doing a "service request".'

As is clear from previous enquiries to VSC by others on this forum, it is difficult to know how accurate this information is but I thought it useful to share our latest update.

I am sorry to read about your not-very-encouraging news. It seems as though VSC petitions are routinely taking closer to 6 months (or more) to be processed rather than 5 month processing estimate. Best wishes! (F)

I called today to change my address and was told they were currently at 6 months for approvals. Sorry for the bad news. I live in Vermont and this frustrates me even more. :(

I called today and was informed that VSC is currently processing applictaions received August 21. They also said they look at 30 day baches...so anything between Aug 21 and Sept 21 is being worked.

As our application was received 16 Sept, they can't officially do anything until they are processing applications received 17 Sept...because only then would ours be considered late. So close, yet still so far!


K1 Process:

NOA1 17 Sept 10

OK, so that would explain why there are several approvals from September filers, if they work in 1 month batches.

; I'm also sure that they are working in one month batches.

They told you that they are working on August 21st filers, but what I do is not to look at Igor's list like most of yall do nor listen carefully to the dates they say they are approving, but look at the the dates (NOA1) on the "immigration timelines" from whom has been approved (NOA2).

And then you can see as well that they approve filers (August-September/1st/2nd week).

It's just a VERY frustrating process. I feel so discouraged and depressed now. My petition was rec'd on 12/27/10 but b/c of a problem with my payment, it didn't clear until 1/18/11. How is it that CSC seems so much faster that VSC? I just don't know how to cope with the possibility of having to wait 6 months for the NOA2 ... then to wait longer for the medical/interview for my fiance. This is just SO frustrating!!!

*tears*


Thanks,

Brandy
