There is no urgent fee or expedite procedures through a fee. May have been a misunderstanding. Its going to come, don't worry. They do a background check sometimes and it takes a little bit of time, since you are from Pakistan.

Well my friend, USCIS and DOS both have different security checks. Usually the ones at DOS are known as AP / AR but this seems like a normal check with the USCIS CSC. Don't worry, its gonna be fine. You will get your NOA2 soon. I know it gets very frustrating but hang in there.

:yes: Yeah, hang in there. I am one of those that filed quite a bit after you and have my approval now. You can be assured I did NOT pay any additional fee. Just the standard I-129f filing fee. Some cases, for mysterious reasons, take longer than others. Good luck to you.

Again, your delay is due to IMBRA although of course it is possible you are being held up for another reason. Have you tried contacting a senator or congressman to make an official inquiry? This is probably the next best thing you can do. There is no way to pay a fee for expediting a I-129F - if there were, we would all do it. Good luck.

IN our state we found the congressman to be a better contact than the senators who never replied, but that was our guys.They can help, it has for us. Best of luck brother.

there is no truth to that There is no premium processing available for Fiancee visa petitions.

If there is... we could have been paid for that so we dont have to wait endlessly.

And then everyone would be back to the exact same schedule as now. The only difference would be that it cost more. Let's all be glad they don't offer it.
