Should I be worried that it's taking so long to process?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm writing this on behalf of my wife who is in USA originally from a K-1 visa. We've finally gotten to our 2 year anniversary where we need to process the I-751.

We originally mailed the application to Vermont and received the NOA1 on February 22nd, and went to the Biometrics appoinment in mid-March. Since then, we have not heard anything from USCIS about our application, and as of today, the case status just shows that the application was received on February 22nd. We've tried calling USCIS about the situation, and they say it's only been received, and according to their case status website, they're finished applications from December 21, 2011.

We visited this site and were alarmed that applications going to Vermont that were submitted after us were already over and done with, with positive results. Our case is not hard, we had all the documents that was requested, yet we haven't been called for interviews yet, and our letters of reference haven't been contacted either.

Hi there. I am in the same boat. I would not worry too much yet. From your information it seems you are mid-to-late February 2012 filer in Vermont. There has been only one approval on this forum for February as of today. Hopefully, you should hear something within a month or sooner. I am also a February 2012 filer and i am beginning to anticipate news any day now. Regards and keep checking here frequently.

Almost eight months!?!...Geeez...that's glacial...!!!... :clock:

Chinook had her ten-year Green Card in hand two months after she filed.

I hope things start moving for you.

I know...that's what's frustrating, seeing that Vermont is the slowest of the bunch. We were looking to move as well and didn't want to until the processing is completed (might be a nightmare).

Nope...you've probably got a couple more months to wait. I've been waiting since December.

I truly have no idea how they sort through their files -- some folks get through the process quickly for no apparent reason, while most have to wait nine or ten months, and some upward of a year.
