Hi all,

We are waiting for our NOA2 and CSC our estimated timeline when our petition will be adjudicated on just got moved back from mid November to mid Dec. Does anyone know if CSC is slowing down or if they are perhaps experiencing problems etc??

Just trying to get an idea as to why it has moved back so far.

Thanks everyone!

So.... That's a question that will probably not be answered. When we filed our petition back in April VSC was moving quite along and quickly changed while the CSC started speeding thru their petition approvals.. VSC was still processing January while CSC flew threw february into march. CSC was processing applications at practically 60-90 days while the VSC was processing apps at about 170-180 days.

From other VJ members views it just tends to go back and forth. VSC will speed up and the CSC will slow down and vice versa. I wish you a speedy approval, good luck!

They have changes in processing all of the time. When I first applied, CSC was still working on 2011 petitions, while VSC was processing a lot faster.

Honestly, I am started to get pissed off at that whole stupid US immigration system. I have lived in the US for over 3 years before filling and now i am away from my fiance and he is away from his son. Why? because it freaking takes 5/6 months to process a stupid sheet of paper ! If it wasn't for Ron not being fluent in french, i would never put one foot back in this country ever again ! Sometimes i'm thinking of cancelling everything and have him live here (he wouldn't mind if he was fluent, but he is only learning) . Plus i've always thought my country to be much better than the unfair US system, i made a sacrifice for my fiance and family, and what? I have to wait for that....

So yeah CSC was moving along pretty fast and they suddenly stop processing just before it is my turn of course ! I'm probably going to visit him on the VWP once before i get the visa because it is really getting annoying. And by the time i have the green card i will make sure we are able to move back to France before i have to apply for naturalization.... I will NEVER want that citizenship ! I am fine with being French (and also Italian)so if he doesn't want to follow us he will stay there without us (me and the kids). So basically except for my fiiance and Abercrombie I really hate the US, their immigration law (stupid as hell) and most people there (especially girls!)

Sorry i had to get it all out ! No offense....

No offense? Perfect example of why so many people around the world can't stand the arrogance of the French! Sad that your husband is married to such a b****. If you hate America so much, then do us all a favor and just stay in France.

Completely agree with you MrsB2012. The French government lets anyone into France. I would rather have USCIS be thorough than to just approve any old petition. I have to wait too, it's hard but come on, my husband left his daughter here with me in the US when he went back the England.

And again, as Mrsb2012 said, if you hate the USA so much then stay in France. And it doesn't sound like French girls are that great either, missy. God Bless America!!!!!!

It's unfortunate, but the CSC seems to usually receive a lot more petitions during the early summer than they are fit to handle. Tends to result in a backlog building up during late summer and fall.

VJ timelines aren't based on actual CIS processing times, but rather recent processing times as reported by of VJ member timelines. Thus, it won't pick up on changes in processing times until this has been reported by VJ members.
