Vermont Center really Sucks

Why is is taking CSC average of 3 months to adjudicate KI and it's taking VSC average of 6 months? I can understand some variables affecting both centers in terms of processing times, but 3 months ? This is more than ridiculous and it's beginning to really piss me off. I really miss my baby who is now 6 months pregnant and it's killing me that VSC is this bad! unfortunately there is nothing I can do but wait and pray for divine intervention because that's all I have now. For those that have got their NOA2s congrats and for those in the same boat as me, keep hope alive!

I don't like it either... I'd prefer things happen faster so that my fiancee can still be able to get pregnant before she's too old, etc.

And for a $340 fee that basically amounts to 15 minutes of work, that comes to about $1360 an hour is available to hire someone to process it. I'm sure they aren't paid that much, so this is not right. If the fee was only $10, maybe I'd understand.

seems the whole visa process from start to ending is screwed up! It doesn't matter where in this visa process any of us are, it is "wait and pay and maybe you get lucky and actually get help or visa"...God be with all of us. :unsure:

I was going to send my I-129F last year in November and the price was $480. I was shocked when i saw $340 this year. I had no idea it was going to drop.

Hello everyone,

Yes I've been checking the stats and CSC is way further ahead than VSC, but like everyone has said, it's all beyond us now. Best wishes to all of us waiting for that NOA2!


Steps in our relationship...

1.Love between a Montana-man turned New Mexican and one happy go lucky Canuck
2. K-1 and AOS
3. 2 year blissful break from immigration (AHH!) = love, happiness, establishing life in the USA, and getting a serious taste for green chillies

4. Immigration part deux (lifting conditions) - go go gadget VSC

5. April 2014 - PR status :dancing:

Next up...citizenship!

Vermont does stink. My wait was difficult but there were some who waited much longer and some who are still waiting. Just hang in there. It's a tough process but you'll make it. :thumbs:

You think you should say this? You think lawyers and immigration do not look at these posts. The service centers are divided up to handle different visas and different issues. Just be happy you are not sent to California. anyway, you need to be patient. this is serious business to bring someone into the US. and you are trying to bring someone here in one very difficult country. So many scammers in Nigeria. You need a lot of patience if you really care for this man, show him you can work thru all this to be with him.

Why is is taking CSC average of 3 months to adjudicate KI and it's taking VSC average of 6 months? I can understand some variables affecting both centers in terms of processing times, but 3 months ? This is more than ridiculous and it's beginning to really piss me off. I really miss my baby who is now 6 months pregnant and it's killing me that VSC is this bad! unfortunately there is nothing I can do but wait and pray for divine intervention because that's all I have now. For those that have got their NOA2s congrats and for those in the same boat as me, keep hope alive!
