No worries.

It seems that CSC filers gets approved quicker than VSC is. Well, it's always been that way anyway. dry.gifCSC is faster to approve cases so who knows maybe you'll get yours too, soon.

in 2008 it was way different, when we filed for K1... the VSC were done married as soon as 4 months after sending the petition, and CSC took 5 or even 6 months just to look at the petition. So it has not always been like that.

:oops: You're right. My husband reminded me. When we begin our journey, we were confident that the process would take less than six months from start to finish. Before we filed VSC was faster than CSC, but when we filed they traded places. ;)

Maybe it's our fault that VSC is so slow. :lol:

Even if you dont hear from them for another year, just apply for Naturalization. For now you already have your extension. I am not worried about my 10 year GC anymore. It was more stressful during the AOS.

I want to feel that way but its more better to have my 10 GC before i file my naturalization next year. But do you think its okay even without a 10 year GC to apply for Naturalization?

It is fine to apply for naturalization without your 10 year GC. All that will happen is they will speed up the processing of your GC because they cannot proceed with the naturalization until that has been granted. :)
