I just received an NOA1 notice 2 days ago, and I think Im going crazy already waiting for NOA2. Is this possible ?

Welcome to the forum.

Congratulations, you got your NOA1. Now you only have approximately 148 days to wait until you (hopefully) get your NOA2, assuming no RFEs. Sit back and relax.

The months between the NOAs is hard, but you will get through it! I still have approximately two months 'til adjudication, but I try to not think about it lest I go insane. Take up something that will fill your time so it doesn't eat at you.

*** Everything was ran by me, don't listen to anyone trying to make a few dollars by "helping" you just because they know someone on the inside ***

11/02/2011 Got Engagement Certificate notarized and signed by witnesses and Village Leader
