NOA1 received 4 Feb 2011 at the California Service Center. NOA2 received 27 May 2011. Paperwork enroute to NVC. The processing time is 5 months. Ours took just under 4 months. No RFE's or anything. So for all of you thinking of hiring an attorney I would recommend against it. I just made a check list based on all the documents needed and went over it 3 times before I mailed it in. An attorney was going to cost more than airfare and I still had to pay the fees as well. I found the USCIS people to be polite, professional, and helpful when I called.

My wife and I are so excited now. The hard part is over. I am just waiting to pay the AOS and visa fees then we should be all set for her interview.

I have done nothing since receiving the NOA2. I am waiting for the NVC to send me the AOS request and the request for DS230. It was suggested that I call the automated line and get my case number them call and speak to a human once I have it. I will be trying to make this happen this weekend.
