Still Waiting

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

March 29th will be 5 months after NOA1. I am, like most, wondering how some are getting their NOA2's in less than 5 months and others are in limbo? Don't have a clue what's going on? It seemed that VSC was getting the NOA2's a littler after 4 months. Now I see some folks getting their NOA2's when they got their NOA1's after me. I want to call to ask, but I am also keeping myself at bay until next Thursday when it's 5 months. Just very depressed that my application was last touched on the 3rd of November and nothing. When would it best to start calling?

Thanks!

we waited over 6 Months, then on the 6.3 month mark low and behold there it was, there is no real timeline, yep some get lucky but the reality is its about an 6-8 month process start to door, so to speak. Hang in there a little longer and Im sure it will happen. Good luck on the Journey.

OZ,

Keep the faith brother. I promise it is coming. I was in your exact shoes over Christmas and driving myself nuts calling USCIS, my Congressman, Senators and I even drove to the local immigration office and they told me nothing. Then one day in early January it happens. Be strong. Be patient. It will happen.

Best,

Stefan

Been waiting over 6 months, hasn't been touched since 9/27. I think how long your case takes is largely luck of the draw. :(

when you get to 5 months you should try asking for a service request from the USCIS. If that doesn't do anything, contact your congressman.


9/19/11 - sent I-129F

9/21/11 - email NOA1

9/27/11 - hard copy NOA1

3/20/12 - congressional inquiry (6 months since NOA1)

4/4/12 - inquiry result: petition approved (still no NOA2 text/email/letter)

4/20/12 - packet 3 received from embassy

I echo the hang in there, I can't even get antsy for 4 more months.

How do you know when you got a "touch"? I hear people talking about this but can't find anyone saying how to find out.

1. Go to: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis

3. Check status

4. If you haven't done so, on the left side, select "Sign-up for case updates"

5. If you have an account, select "Sign-in My Account"

This could have been as simple as filing the package or moving it from one location to another.

Doesn't say anything.

Don't forget to set e-mail and cell (mobile) alerts.

Then the agony starts... everyday check the website...

Every day check my cell phone...

Every day when nothing comes in...

Feel the pain...

Today is 146 days since NOA1

When the 5 month hits, I intend to call VSC... then in a matter of days... I will contact my Congressman.... I believe that once Congress gets involved, the ball starts moving.....
