Background checks 6 more months processing

21 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Please share your experience if you received this same information. We have waited six months from NOA1 and now they are saying we are in background checks that could take another 6 months. Contacted Senator and Senator's office called today and said they were told the same thing. E-mailed CSC and I just received e-mail from them saying sorry this is the current processing time. What? We have already waited 6 months.

If anyone has experienced this, please share your story with me.

Thank you.

I tried staying in Turkey with my husband until the visa came but I was like a fish out of water. I then came back to the US and booked us a 2 month stay together in the Dominican Republic and had to come back again because a co-worker had a stroke and they needed me to come back to my job. Now I am thinking of selling everything and going back to Turkey. This is a nightmare. I wish I hadn't called for a service request. It is like I am being punished for checking on our status.

I agree with you that is why I posted this topic. I do not understand this at all. Both of us put in a service request because it has taken so long and we get this response that is so unexpected. I had no idea this could even possibly happen.

I just hope someone who might have experienced this before can shed some light.

Thanks for caring.

I loved Albania and my husbands family but he thought he was asking for me to give up to much, house, family etc...I was thinking the same thing , punished for calling to much because I couldn't check my status at first and had to call a couple times in the past to see ...someone said maybe the countries we are from but doesn't make sense because ppl from MENA countries have been approved alot faster..:(

I was thinking it had to do with countries that are "high risk" countries. Either way its unfair.

Yes, I agree it has nothing to do with the countries. My husband at first wanted me to give up everything and live in Turkey with him, but now he doesn't because he saw that I was not happy in Turkey. My plans will change if he doesn't get a visa though. I will sell my home, car, all personal belongings and move to Turkey.

Just found someone who was in our same boat back at the end of 2010. It took one month for her to get her NOA2. It made me feel a little better. She got the exact same notice we did and felt the same way we feel. But now her husband is in USA with her. I am so praying we only have to wait a month.

Hang in there.

The cases in the Immigration Offices are taking long time after all the situations around the world (Egypt, Japan and Libia). That countries had priority in their cases and by that everything is running more slow.

My case had problems in the NVC. If any paper has an error they will request to u for send it with corrections and after u send it by next day delivery... they could take 20 days for just open ur letter.

i got the same response to my service request for my fiance. still waiting. I think the reasons can be 1) your name matches closely someone who has a flag in their system 2) something that strikes them as "off" about your case. for example we are filing for the 2nd time after having a mistake in our first petition....

I already moved to Russia once before to be with him (before we got engaged) and moved back right when he got his first visa... then they CANCELLED it :-( because of this mistake. So now we are separated for almost 1.5 years waiting already even though I did already stay with him in Russia through an entire K-1 visa wait process for our round 1 of the process. ARGH.

Our plan B is to move to a 3rd country together...

I have not been able to find a lot of examples of people who got this same notice to see how long it took. The example you found with 1 month is encouraging!


2009/06/19 - 1st NOA 1 (I-129F)

2009/10/07 - NOA 2

2010/01/11 - interview; result - approved

2010/01/18 - received passport with visa in the mail

2010/02/05 - embassy calls and asked to return visa for a "correction"

2010/02/09 - fiance returns passport with visa to embassy

2010/03/09 - embassy tells us we are in "administrative review"

2010/09/07 - fiance receives passport back with canceled visa and letter; our petition has been returned to USCIS

2010/11/08 - 2nd NOA 1 (I-129F ROUND 2)

2011/04/19 - service request response - 6 months additional extensive background checks

2011/08/22 - 2nd NOA 2

2011/10/04 - interview

2011/10/20 - visa received

2011/11/04 - POE

2011/11/25 - legal marriage
