K1 Petition - Delays in Processing

Timeline

My fiance originally sent our I129F petition to the Texas Lock Box on January 25th and it was transferred to Vermont Service Center. We received our NOA1 dated January 31st. At that time, USCIS website said that the processing times in Vermont for K1/K2 petitions was 5 months.

I checked today and it is now 8.7 months. :( UGGGG!!

So I guess my question is... Should I wait until we receive NOA2 before requesting a police check and completing the I134?

Are there any other documents that are date sensitive that we should hold off on for now?

Thanks

Today sucks!!

:(:(:(

Well I guess I'll be cheering you up then! VSC is well ahead of the CSC as far as approvals (VSC Currently reviewing Dec 7, 2011 and CSC Nov 30, 2011) so that timeline you looked at makes no sense! Trust the timelines you see on this website, because people who get approved update them daily. That timeline you looked is NOT updated - it might be based on historic data - rather than actual "live" data. Cheer up and call them once the 5 month mark hits (if you haven't received anything yet)!

Right now all you should do is keep collecting evidence. Do not try to get any time sensitive papers and documents. Wait until you get NOA2, after that you will have plenty of time to get those documents.

The timeline I am looking at is the USCIS website:

https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/Dashboard/ProcTimes.do

Effective Jan 31, 2012.

Also, Visa Journey has updated my possible judication dates from May - June to July - Sept... :(

Could be possibly because of this Syrian Temporary Protection Status?

hello kim you filed 2 months before me but my timeline shows sveta and i should be approved early july

I'm not sure why then. Maybe it has to do with the beneficiary's country? I'm from Canada, Sveta is from Ukraine?

I have it as Texas because that is where we originally filed... but they moved it to Vermont. Visa Journey says to put original Service Center there... I will change it and see what happens...thanks.

The Lockbox in Texas is where all I-129F petitions are sent, then they reroute them either to California or Vermont, usually by the state where the petitioner lives. :)

Thanks Sara,

I did not know that. I don't even understand why VJ has Texas as an option then.

June 4 - June 11 sounds much better than July 3rd to Sept 4th.. :)

I think I will leave it this way!! :)

eheh, I dont know either why there's texas amongst the options. I think it's cos it used to process I129F too up until a couple of years ago, but I might be wrong :)

yep, mid of june sounds way better :)

aaaah, cant wait to get my NOA2, at least you are at VSC which seems to be far ahead than CSC...
