K-1 Petition Process time at Texas Service Center

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Texas does not process i129f petitions. We send them to the Dallas Lockbox or the Lewisville address and from there it gets routed either to Vermont or California. Once you receive your NOA1, it will state what center your petition has been sent to.

Good luck! :)

I want to know recently the K-1 Petition Process time at Texas Service Center. Is anyone successful from this center? Please give me some clues. Thanks . :P

Hi There, I am from Texas. Our file was submitted to the Texas lockbox and then forwarded to the Vermont Service Center. Our petition took approximately 164 days for approval from receipt of the NOA1 to receipt of NOA2. From there it took about 1 month for the consulate to receive and interview date was scheduled 1 month later. So I would say an average of about 8 months overall. At the bottom of my post you should be able to see my timeline, additionally, if you look at my profile you can see my timeline there as well. I hope this is helpful and if you have any additional questions please be sure to ask. Welcome to VJ and good luck with your VJ!
