K-1 I129F Wait Time

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello VJ-ers...

Best of luck to ALL of you in surviving the process with your sanity intact.

My current concern is, having received NOA1 on April 2 2012, we are now in the wait for the NOA2, of course.

VJ and even National Averages listed at USCIS and also the dates and wait times on the timelines of others dealing with our same consulate ALL say 5 months (approx. of course).

HOWEVER

when I use the USCIS toggle system for estimates on the Texas Service Center specifically, which is where VJ instructs sending the initial application, say over 13 MONTHS! :wow:

I now know there is a USCIS processing center right here in Chula Vista, California, in San Diego, where I live! Their wait time is listed at the national average! I am mortified!

Our application is sitting in Texas just waiting in piles of others and now we may be waiting for up to a year more?!?!?!

SOMEONE PLEASE ASSURE ME THIS IS NOT TRUE! :(

I still see on VJ that there are US/Moroccan NOA2s occurring within the 5 month national average.

It is simply that one toggle system (I hope you all know what I mean) that has my heart in additional knots.

I leave in one week to spend six with my fiance, so there is some solace there, of course. But we HAD hoped that soon after would be the interview and APPROVAL finally bringing us together after the entire 2 year ordeal. (and I know some of you have had even more to deal with and approval is no guarantee, but optimism is my armor. :D

Blessings to each and every person facing this most challenging love.

Stay true to the connection and believe...

Thanks for any feedback you can give us regarding this apparent contradiction.

The Dallas Lockbox is not the same as the Texas Service Center. The Dallas Lockbox address is the only place to mail your I-129F petition package. Your petition was then forwarded to either the California or Vermont Service Center. Look at your NOA1 to see which has it and update your timeline accordingly. EAC = Vermont and WAC = California.


Part One: The K-1 Visa Journey:

USCIS Receipt of I-129F: January 24, 2012 | Petition Approval: June 15, 2012 (No RFEs)
Interview: October 24, 2012 - Review | Visa Delivered: October 31, 2012



Part Two: Entry and Adjusting Status:

POE: November 18, 2012 (at SFO) - Review
Wedding: December 1, 2012 | Social Security: New cards received on December 7, 2012.
AOS Package (I-485/I-765/I-131) NOA1: February 19, 2013 | Biometrics Appt.: March 18, 2013
AP/EAD Approved: April 29, 2013 | Card Received: May 6, 2013 | AOS Interview Appt.: May 16, 2013 - Approved Review Card Received: May 24, 2013

Part Three: Removal of Conditions:

Coming Soon...

Welcome to the forum.

You have put the incorrect information in your timeline and on your profile, and you need to correct it to get relevant statistics. You sent your I-129F petition to the Dallas Texas lockbox facility, not the Texas Service Center. The lockbox facility receives and sorts the petitions to either the WAC or the EAC. The Texas Service Center does not adjudicate K-1 visa petitions. Your I797c (NOA1) notice will have a receipt number beginning with WAC or EAC, WAC = California Service Center, EAC = Vermont Service Center, change your information accordingly.

Barring any RFEs or other unforeseen problems, you may get your K-1 visa in December 2012 or January 2013.

Good luck on your visa journey.

OOOOOHHHH!!!

I see it!

I changed it!

I hope the estimates are right and it all about this autumn!

The wait, of course, is killing us.

But the next six weeks together will be just the fuel we need.

Thank you so much for your generous information so that I could right my course.

it left me with a little increased hopes.
