All the info is right here at VJ. You just have to do some counting and a little math for each month. I didn't count anything that's happened with Vermont K-1's. I know that some of those are slow too but most of them are approved with 30 to 60 days with an average of 38 days. I just took the California K-1's from March until August. As more people apply and submit K-1's for September, then those can be added. When I get some time I'll try to do January and February just for the historical data. I know there are some still there from those months still waiting. Overall most of the K-1's for CSC are in the target months I did percentages on. There was a flurry of June approvals then those died away some, then a whole bunch of July approvals and now it seems like those are dying down a bit too. Is August the next month for a rash of approvals? Too early to tell. But you're right, there seems to be no rhyme or reason to the way CSC is even looking at the applications. But that's looking at it from our side of the fence. Maybe to them what they're doing makes all the sense in the world.

just curious, are those dates from when people sent their petitions? or from their noa1 date? The reason I ask is because I sent my petition in July, but my NOA1 is from August. (the 8th or 1st I can't figure that part out yet!)

Also, that's not counting the fact that the approval is probably a little higher, as some people come and go on this site and never update their timelines! :)

timeline doesn't matter.

I've been keeping Vermont stats for comparitive purposes, even though I'm a CSC filer. I've updated my Vermont spreadsheet according to Gary's rules over the last couple of days. Here are the stats I've come up with...We knew there was a big difference; but in putting my percentages next to Jasal's, we can see just how BIG a difference it is.

March=26 Timelines; 5 (19%) Still Pending

April=37 Timelines; 3 (1%) Still Pending

May=32 Timelines; 4 (1%) Still Pending

June=33 Timelines; 5 (2%) Still Pending

July=17 Timelines; 4 (24%) Still Pending

August=22 Timelines; 5 (23%) Still Pending

TOTAL=167 Timelines; 26 (16%) Still Pending

January 2004: Met Laurent at the Bibliothèque nationale in Paris

February 2004: We became an actual couple

January 29th, 2006: I left France to return to the United States--AWFUL to say goodbye!

June 2006: Finally convinced Laurent that a K-1 visa would be more time-effective than trying to get an H-1

August 1st, 2006: The K-1 petition is finally in the mail and on its way to Nebraska...WooHoooo!! And yes, I remembered to attach the check! :-)

August 3rd, 2006: USPS online tracking shows that my petition (sent certified) was received at the NSC at 5:05am

August 14th, 2006: NOA1 received USPS!! (I-129F recv'd at CSC: 8/4; NOA date: 8/10; last touched: 8/11)

October 2nd, 2006: I MISTAKENLY thought we had an approval...False alarm...Back to waiting...

October 3rd, 2006: TOUCHED!!

October 4th, 2006: REALLY AND TRULY APPROVED!!! Email notification lists 10/3 as the NOA2 date.

Later that same day: TOUCHED...AGAIN! Hope that means I'm in a cozy box and moving to NVC this week...

October 10th, 2006: Received official NOA2 via snail mail.

October 19th, 2006: Case received at NVC!! AWESOME!!

October 20th, 2006: Case forwarded to Paris!! DHL says two shipments were headed that way. Must be in there somewhere...

October 27th, 2006: Received official receipt letter from NVC via USPS.
