Timeline

I filed my K3 visa along with I-130 on November 10, 2010 and uptodate it is still under intitial review. I loggdd into the USCIS web page and typed reciept numbers between WAC.........150 to 250 and found that only one out ten petition filed was approved and all the rest are under initial review. In my case I contacted the USCIS over the phone to find out why it took over 5 months and a week later, got an e-mail saying that my application is under background check. I am just wondering how many files do they process every day?... I scheduled an appointmnet with the USCIS in my city and talked to the one of the staff face to face and she told me that I-130 applications usually takes from 5 to 10 months and advised me to wait.....??????

Is there any body in the forum who filed in November and got approved in May???????

You are not alone.We receive our NO1 on the 18th of October and have still not received an approval.We contacted the Uscis and was told they are conducting a background check.This is very heart breaking and challenging.Its very bad when others are being approved withing 2 to 3 months and we have to wait for 7 months and still no approval.We pray an hope we receive it this coming week.

You can't request an expedite just becauase you want them to hurry. You can only request an expedite in dire situations.

Yes that's true...we requested expedite only because my husbands area became so violent that it was life threatening for him to try to go to work. They were burning the transportation so that he would have to walk instead putting himself in direct danger of being targeted and killed so we requested expedite thru USCIS for humanitarian reasons. We were approved but the violence has somewhat subsided now and NVC moved so fast and they even scheduled us for interview quickly so we havent tried expediting again...but...if you expedite thru USCIS you still have to request expedite thru NVC AND the embassy stages...it doesnt follow thru the whole process

Hi everyone!Glad I read this post same problem as mine.Husband & I filed last Oct.2010 and we received our NOA1 last October 27,2010.I just can't understand why it takes 7 to 10mos waiting for us spousal visa. In fact we really need to be w/our partner coz we're not bf.gf anymore.But I will understand if that was their procedure on approving petitions.

Everytime I update our case status on uscis website it was still on the RFE response review since may 4,2010 after we comply our RFE.I thought the decision will come out after 14days of date that we comply our RFE :unsure: But we're still waiting...So I post a topic here How to write a letter for the congressman.Maybe we could help us to our case :help:

you just write something like to whom it may concern,

and just tell them name , case file, where you filed and tell that they have 5 month processing time and you are past this..they will send you a email for you to download or scan the privacy release form you have to do this before they will help..good luck..oh make sure give phone number and email you can be reached and address...they get this alot so letter dont have to be perfect:)..good luck..
