when did you send you petetion in..my priority date is dec.6.2010 but i havent goten my approval yet..i wonder whats taking them so long..vj states that they are processing dec.7.2010 at csc..

My priority date is December 14 nevertheless there are several members who's priority date was either around the same time or after mine and they received their NOA2 before we did. It will come, have faith. I will be praying for you two, you pray as well for everyone else who is waiting. God is in control! Sorry just noticed...are you applying for an adjustment of status? The timeline may be different for that process, not sure though so please don't take my word for it...
