In September 20 2011 my wife got NOA1 for my (I 130) and till now I did not hear anything and I did not get the NOA2, so its about 8 months and few days, so does it take all that time? and why?

our papers in (CALIFORNIA SERVICE CENTER) and everything is ok, I mean we send all the document that they need, a living in Jordan and my wife in Texas, so is that time normal? and what should we do?

Five months is considered normal processing time. Get your wife to call them and ask to speak to a Tier 2 operator. She should ask them to put in a service request as you are past normal processing time. Don't worry too much about the online case status - that is notoriously unreliable and some peoples case status never changes, even after they have got their visa and arrived in the US!

Is your wife a US citizen or a permanent resident (green card holder)?

If she's a US citizen, 5 months is normal processing time, even after the backlog last fall at CSC, waiting over 7 months is way too long. Your wife needs to call the USCIS asap and file a service request.

Why it takes longer for some is hard to say. They are humans at the service centers too, and it does occur that files just get 'lost.' (But are easy for them to find again)

"Name hits" is another issue that could come up, if your name matches the name of a "bad guy", but are usually cleared up fairly quickly.

If your wife is a permanent resident, it usually takes longer.

Hi,

As others have said you should have your wife contact USCIS. We are coming up to our 5 months wait on June 11th. I am hoping to hear something positive soon, but I am ready to call and also contact my local congressmen and senator for assistance in our application. So be sure to pass that on. She can get her local politician's office a call and they can contact on hers and your behalf.

Take care.
