They just started approving january!! And remember that your 5 months mark is in june so if you get the NOA2 in May you're very lucky!

Think about all the November, December (and even October) filers that are still waiting!

And my question is why are there still october, november, and december filers still waiting if they did not receive an RFE. Does this mean that they could also randomly decide to approve my january case much later than others?

And my question is why are there still october, november, and december filers still waiting if they did not receive an RFE. Does this mean that they could also randomly decide to approve my january case much later than others?

Short answer: yes, it's possible. I've been trying to understand the logic behind petition approvals for weeks and there's not a clear one, at least not one that's easy to understand. My guess is that right now they're trying to get the statistics back into the 5 months frame, and in order to do so they approve people that waited for less than 5. Once the statistics will be back to 5 months, they will approve the petitions left behind but mine is just a guess.

If I were you though, I'd be very happy because you have a very high chance to be approved soon. In less than 3 weeks they approved around 60% of december petitions and now they're around 16% for january. Hopefully you'll be adjudicated before the end of May!

OMG we are February filers as well!!So happy that we are getting close...

Not only we are both feb filers, we also have the same NOA1 date!!! :D Best luck to both of you guys, let's hope our adjudication will come soon!

Wow, congratulations! I am also a January filer and I am ACHING for my NOA2. I know there are people who are waiting longer than me, and so I have NO reason to complain, but my fiance and I just want to be together after being apart for the best part of 7 years!! While I'm thrilled to see so many January petitions being processed (especially since I'm one of them :luv:) I'm curious about WHY there are so many being approved when November and December filers are still waiting. How are the petitions distributed amongst the adjudicators? Are they distributed by the beneficiary's country? I have been thinking that if this is the case, it might explain why some people are approved so much earlier than others. What do you guys think?

Hoping we ALL get our approvals soon! :yes:
