I don't normally start my own posts on VJ but I thought that the 200th day deserved its own thread!!

The good news is they received our second RFE today so I'm cautiously optimistic that like some of our fellow VJs the elusive NOA2 will follow shortly.

I hope to be posting my own "Approved" message very soon. Fingers crossed! :D

Cross my fingers and pray for your approval to come soon after the RFE like some of the other folks lately. I can't say I understand how it feels to wait that long, but you certainly have my sympathies.

Our K-1 Visa/AOS/RoC timeline can be found here.

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

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

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...

I am sorry for your wait.

I very much hope you get your NOA2 very soon, and that the rest of your process is fast and painless.

I think it is very sad that our government treads its citizens and their loved ones this way. It gives the rest of the world a horrible impression of us at a time when care, communication and promptness matter so much and would not cost very much. :angry::angry:


Thank for for updating your timeline. (My Assistant, then edit/add my timeline.)
