i-129f timeline

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm not even sure if i am posting this on the write wall (sincerely sorry if i am wrong!).

My American Fiance sent of the I-129f for me on December 17th 2010. We then got an email & letter on 3rd January 2011 saying that the Texas Service Center have received it and they are forwarding it on to the Vermont Service Center. We then got a 'touch' notification on 7th January 2011 but there was no information on who touched it or where it was. Are any of these an NOA1?

Can anyone enlighten me?

I am also trying to figure out how long it should take.

Some timelines say 5 months some say less and some say more!

It has been over a month since we had any contact or 'touches' and i am signed up with the USCIS to track these movements. Does it take approx 5 months for the Vermont Service Center to process it and then it gets sent to my place of residence (which takes another couple of months?) OR should we expect the whole process and the visa in hand within 5 months?

Does anyone have any idea what i should expect next? How long i should wait? Should i contact the service center and ask them what's up?

Many thanks to everyone who responds.

Sarah

probably touched by Vermont when they received it. Touches are rare because now that you petition is at VSC, it will sit silently there until just before it is reviewed..

USCIS timelines are USCIS ONLY...

Hei there :)

The NOA1 (I-797 I think the form is called) is the letter you got.

You can go to http://www.visajourney.com/timeline/ and see what dates the service center are currently at but bear in mind that it is only Visa Journey members so it's only a fraction of the petitions.

That timeline it only until it gets approved. You can use this flowchart as an estimate or see the timeline of other members from your country; http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1flow

By that I mean from your NOA1 until your NOA2 when it comes to those 5 months.

You are one of the "lucky" ones who reached at VSC. I hope I am really , really wrong but I would suggest to not count on those 5 months you heard about. E.g. I am at the VSC and I have more than 5 months since NOA1 and lot others reached 6, even 7 months. After you receive NOA2 you will spend another aprox .1 months (depends of consulate) to get the interview. As I said before I hope you won't get through what we did ! Good luck !!!

I know when i filed my I-129f last January it took about 6months from start to finish. Plus depends how back logged they are at VSC. I wouldn't think too much of it, the time will come soon enough for you.

Good luck to you ;0)


We first met online 2004, but things started to get serious in Dec 2007. Made my first visit to the USA in march 2008 for 2 weeks. Then returned again in Aug 2008 for 3 months.. Then i came back to the UK for 5 months to return back to the USA April 2009 for another 3months.
