STILL awaiting NOA2, 8 months after filing for K-1...

Timeline

Today marks eight months exactly since we shipped our K-1 visa packet off. I continue to wait and to wait. To update those who do not know my story:

- I have called USCIS multiple times. They are rarely helpful. They just read off the same script in robotic voices. The times where I have had a helpful Tier 2 officer put in a Service Request (happened twice) I get a form letter later stating that my case is still under review, background checks, etc.

- My Senator's Aide has contacted Vermont Service Center congressional liaison several times and is told the same thing we are told. She has no pull whatsoever. We are either told we are still in administrative processing, or that they have sixty days to reply from the date they received my RFE repsonse.

- We did receive an RFE at six and a half months. Requesting passport photos of myself. Which I had sent with the original petition. Regardless, I took the photos and mailed them back the same day. I mailed them back on April 20 - almost 1.5 months ago. They were received on April 22 but VSC did not confirm receipt officially until May 2 - buying them until July 2 for a response.

I am so happy for all my VJ friends who have received approval lately. But it makes the fact that we continue to wait, even though we filed before 99% of these individuals, even more difficult to swallow.

There is no reason on God's green earth that we should be waiting this long. I have no criminal record. I pay my taxes on time every year. I am an upstanding, professional citizen in my late twenties. I have been dating my fiance for four years. He is also an upstanding, law abiding, tax paying citizen in his country in his late twenties with no criminal background. He works for the Mexican subsidiary of a large U.S. corporation. He has a valid US tourist visa. Why would they have issued it if he was a criminal? Why are they taking eight months to verify our "background"? We have never been married previously. Neither of us have children. We met in real life, not through some online dating site. You would think we would be the perfect example of a case that should get whisked through the immigration process in 2-3 months. NOT EIGHT MONTHS.

I am at my wit's end. My patience is gone. It has been gone for awhile. I maintained a positive, optimistic outlook every day for eight months. Every day for eight months I woke up with renewed hope at seeing a change in my case status. That hope is gone. Everyday I wake up depressed, knowing another day will pass with no news. Every day ends with a soul-crushing disappointment in my heart. I am despondent and depressed. My life is on hold. I can't make plans going forward because I don't know what the result will be.

Although my fiance and I mutually agreed the US would be the place where we want to get married and put down roots, I am starting to second guess that decision. Mexico has a plethora of security and economical issues, and I would miss my family here and all my favorite stores like Whole Foods and Target - but other than that? At least in Mexico I was treated with respect and dignity by the government there. Neither my fiance nor I have received such treatment from the U.S. government here. It is enough to make me vomit.

My country has let me down.

It is so unfair what is happening to you two. Everyday I also wake up hoping and praying that there will be some change in our status, but still nothing. (though we are only at 5 months, which still feels too long) Just know that you are not alone, the rest of us are all playing this waiting game too. It sucks. I hope that having to go through this horrible wait will make your marriage all the more sweeter in the future. When you're both old and grey in a nursing home someday, may you still feel the same desire to be together that you do right now. Love never fails....

My country has let me down.

Wow it sounds like you will be moving to Mexico. Would it be a good idea to bring anyone to a terrible country like the USA from a great place like Mexico? They have Walmarts there & maybe Target too. Odd that so many Mexicans are pouring over the border escaping from the Eden you describe.

Your government didnt let you down. You just werent ready for the long & difficult immigration journey. My own took 408 days so I know how you feel. Even with all that happened I can tell you its worth it. This is in fact the greatest country on earth.

We dont know much about immigration issues until we are faced with them. The laws havent been changed in over 60 years. They arent written to make it easy. What has your elected official done to reform the laws to make it easier for you to bring someone here? Did you vote for them based on those actions?

This is tough. Your case like mine did seem to have simply fallen off the radar. You are understandably upset by the lack of progress. Dont give up. You are simply a victim of the volume of cases under review. Your case will get done & you will have what you wanted. All of the background of your case is good but has little to do with the timing of the approval. Like us in the past, you seem to have been a little unlucky to have filed at a time when USCIS is very busy. They are always busy from what I have seen.

Your mistake with the photos is exactly the same we made. That RFE cost you time. Ours set us back two months. If you take that into consideration you are at 6 months not 8. That is about on par with others.

Dont let this get you too far down. You will succeed in the end I am sure.

No need to be sarcastic. I love the US but there are actually great things to be said about living and raising a family in a country other than the US (and I say this as someone who spent 7 years of my childhood overseas). We are in fact planning to move back to Burkina for at least a few years once we have kids and they are a bit older. Mexico is another can of worms currently because of the security issues there, but other than that there are some really nice parts of the country (or at least there were 10 years ago...it's been awhile). There is a huge difference between living in a developing/middle income country on a $100/month government salary (these are generally the folks who want to leave) and living there with a good income allowing a nice standard of living. That said, there are alos good reasons to live in the US, but you shouldn't dismiss living in another country out-of-hand

Thats a heart warming story of your point of view. However you are lecturing someone that lived outside the USA for 35 years in a developing country. My mother is still there & lives on the 100 dollars a month I provide to her. The government gives her 15 bucks. Sell it somewhere else.

"Although my fiance and I mutually agreed the US would be the place where we want to get married and put down roots, I am starting to second guess that decision. Mexico has a plethora of security and economical issues, and I would miss my family here and all my favorite stores like Whole Foods and Target - but other than that?

It wasnt my idea for the OP to make this statement. Its clear that they both feel the U S goverment has zero respect for them while the Mexican governemt showed the total respect & dignity they demand.

Enjoy your stay in Burknia.

You're being sort of rude, although you did make some good points in your original statement, you ruined the whole post by your opening statements. In this second post you seem to be upset that the OP is frustrated..? If this thread upsets you somehow don't participate in it.

I myself have been living in Mexico with my Fiance through this process and I feel for you soo much Moneyfer. Our case was approved in a little less than 5 months, so obviously your wait has been longer and harder than ours was, but I know the feeling of being so desperate and angry that moving to the U.S. sounds like the exact opposite of what you want to do.

I've second guessed the decision many times after thinking about what they are making us do to simply move back to the country where I was born and the country that I've been faithful to for my entire life. It makes me sick too Moneyfer, and sometimes I wonder if it's actually the best decision.

Yes Mexico has some issues they need to take care of, and sometimes things here make me absolutely insane because nothing can ever seem to make complete sense and always has to be like 25% harder than it actually should be, but it's a beautiful country who does not make ANYONE go through the hoops that the U.S. requires to come into the country.

Hang in there... hopefully this will all be worth it in the end.

" If this thread upsets you somehow don't participate in it." I didnt realise you were the resident critic. Follow your own advice. Confine yourself to what you understand & view as helpful to the OP. You may want to try to get on Dr Phil & dish out the cheap advice.

The plain fact is that they arent that far out what is now the norm. They made a mistake which drew an RFE. That mistake cost them time. Now they get frustrated with the government & want to vomit. Many here on V J have waited 6 months. I have explained how the same mistake affect my case which still took a lot longer then the OPs. The OP should benefit from what I said.

If the effort that it takes to emmigrate thru the legal process becomes too big a burden its easy for ANYONE to quit. Those of you that think Mexico is the place to be because they dont put people thru this horrible experiance should simply ask Mexico to allow you to live there. Just dont vomit while you are asking. Dont second guess your decision.

Ok so this is some conspericy then by the U S government to delay your case.

To be serious I truly hope your case is approved soon. I know what waiting forever is like. I still think I have come to the greatest country of earth no matter what the cost in time or money has been. It is a huge privilage to be allowed here. I have great respect for this country, its government & the freedom I enjoy here that isnt possible where I come from. If you dont its fine with me. I just cant understand why you would want to bring anyone here to endure the terrible abuse by the U S goverment. Especially when you indicate how good life can be for people in Mexico. I never considered living there when I see the never ending stories of the cities like Juarez & others. That and the hundreds of thousands that will do anything to get out of there. One member hs said Mexico has a few issue to take care of. Good luck on that.

Today marks eight months exactly since we shipped our K-1 visa packet off. I continue to wait and to wait. To update those who do not know my story:

- I have called USCIS multiple times. They are rarely helpful. They just read off the same script in robotic voices. The times where I have had a helpful Tier 2 officer put in a Service Request (happened twice) I get a form letter later stating that my case is still under review, background checks, etc.

- My Senator's Aide has contacted Vermont Service Center congressional liaison several times and is told the same thing we are told. She has no pull whatsoever. We are either told we are still in administrative processing, or that they have sixty days to reply from the date they received my RFE repsonse.

- We did receive an RFE at six and a half months. Requesting passport photos of myself. Which I had sent with the original petition. Regardless, I took the photos and mailed them back the same day. I mailed them back on April 20 - almost 1.5 months ago. They were received on April 22 but VSC did not confirm receipt officially until May 2 - buying them until July 2 for a response.

I am so happy for all my VJ friends who have received approval lately. But it makes the fact that we continue to wait, even though we filed before 99% of these individuals, even more difficult to swallow.

There is no reason on God's green earth that we should be waiting this long. I have no criminal record. I pay my taxes on time every year. I am an upstanding, professional citizen in my late twenties. I have been dating my fiance for four years. He is also an upstanding, law abiding, tax paying citizen in his country in his late twenties with no criminal background. He works for the Mexican subsidiary of a large U.S. corporation. He has a valid US tourist visa. Why would they have issued it if he was a criminal? Why are they taking eight months to verify our "background"? We have never been married previously. Neither of us have children. We met in real life, not through some online dating site. You would think we would be the perfect example of a case that should get whisked through the immigration process in 2-3 months. NOT EIGHT MONTHS.

I am at my wit's end. My patience is gone. It has been gone for awhile. I maintained a positive, optimistic outlook every day for eight months. Every day for eight months I woke up with renewed hope at seeing a change in my case status. That hope is gone. Everyday I wake up depressed, knowing another day will pass with no news. Every day ends with a soul-crushing disappointment in my heart. I am despondent and depressed. My life is on hold. I can't make plans going forward because I don't know what the result will be.

Although my fiance and I mutually agreed the US would be the place where we want to get married and put down roots, I am starting to second guess that decision. Mexico has a plethora of security and economical issues, and I would miss my family here and all my favorite stores like Whole Foods and Target - but other than that? At least in Mexico I was treated with respect and dignity by the government there. Neither my fiance nor I have received such treatment from the U.S. government here. It is enough to make me vomit.

My country has let me down.

May i suggested that you contact your senator or congressman, they can be a big help... Tim and I did this, and in less than 4 months our aplication has been approved, just yesterday we read from our case status inquiry in USCIS that our K1 petition has been approved (and I believe this is the NOA2) and they already sent through mail the paper....

Will be praying for you.

It was already said but I will repeat it again. IT JUST TOO UNFAIR. IT IS TAKING TOO LONG FOR YOU GUYS TO GET THE NOA2! Note my CAPS.
