17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I got married on December 28, 2011, applied for CR1 on Jan 3, 2012. Received NOA1 on Jan 10 and just received NOA2 on March 20...

seems very quick from what I have read....are things moving very fast these days or did this forum give me such great instructions that USCIS gave us priority treatment ?

Thanks to the forum so far

Moved from Process & Procedures to Progress Reports.

applied for CR1 on Jan 3, 2012. Received NOA1 on Jan 10 and just received NOA2 on March 20...

You didn't apply for a CR-1, the foreign spouse does that. You filed a petition.

seems very quick from what I have read....are things moving very fast these days or did this forum give me such great instructions that USCIS gave us priority treatment ?

Are you currently residing overseas and sent your file to the lockbox from overseas?

Congratulations!

Now you better wear some body armor, the crowd that's been waiting for 5-7 months for an NOA2 might come after you with pitch forks. :D

you are right.... we will go after the US Goverment and people who vote for our corrupt goverment with pitch forks.

imagine living all your life all alone... then you finally meet someone who you trully love then the US goverment comes in and says you can't be with her/him.

I can imagine what these people most be planning to get back at them.
