Outside Normal Processing Times

We filed our I-129F petition on 12/8/2012 with the VSC. i called USCIS on 5/8/2012 at the five-month mark to check that status of our case, and they told me to wait to file a request for inquiry until the processing times had been updated on the website. The representative I spoke with on 5/8/2012 did tell me that on that date, the VSC was currently processing petitions filed on 12/4/2012 so that we probably wouldn't have long to wait. On 5/16/2012, the processing times were updated and were still listed as five months, so I filed a request for inquiry into why our case was outside the normal processing times.

I just received a response on 5/24/12 stating that our petition is currently under review and we should hear a response within two months of receipt of this letter. Did anyone else file on or around the same time with the VSC? If so, what's your status? Does a delay like this mean anything or is it just a slow service center?

Thanks,

Thanks,

Your timeline says your NOA1 is dated 2011-12-21, that is the date you should use to estimate the time, not when you sent it. That means you have been waiting 5 months and 3 days, not long after the estimated time frame given by USCIS.

Thanks for the tip. I contacted my representative and hope that will help. Congrats on your NOA2!

I got my NOA1 on 12/12 and got my NOA2 on 05/02. I took us 142 days in VSC to get approved. Maybe you can get your local representative to make an inquiry on your behalf, that helps sometimes.

You're only 7 days over the estimated time frame for NOA2, you should wait a bit longer before contacting anyone about it.
