i was just wondering, which of these cases scenarios would get the petition approved faster for, if the spouse is living with the beneficiary abroad and filed abroad, or if the spouse is in the us working while the beneficiary is living abroad, or both the spouse the beneficiary live together in the us???

I believe when they both live abroad is quickest


May 24, 2011 NOA1

Sept 11, 2011 NOA2-took 19 days to get case number

Sept 30, 2011 NVC number and IIN received Friday-gotta wait till Monday

Oct 13, 2011 Case Completed- 13 days from receiving case number Took 32 days from NOA2

Nov 30, 2011 Notified of Interview date

January 19, 2012 Interview- 240 days from NOA1

INTERVIEW RESULTS-APPROVED WITH 14 WEEKS AP--but he got his visa in 56 days!!!!!!

PLEASE EDIT YOUR TIMELINE IN YOUR PROFILE SO OTHERS CAN LEARN HOW LONG EACH STEP TAKES IN THIS PROCESS

since the 15 AUG 2012 MSC rerouting, all bets are off for 'which is fastest' .

However, the last scenario you've described smacks of 'Adjustment of Status', not 'chasing a visa' .


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Unfortunately nothing nowadays is really fast.

Each case is treated indepently from my experience. In my particular situation I was in the US and my husband was in Egypt. It took 303 days (alittle less than a year) to get an approval (start to finish).

There was another case who is a friend of mine, she lived in Egypt and applied for a visa while living with him. Her case took 129 days to get an approval (start to finish).

Those are just two examples, but again each case is different. Realistically, I would say that if you expect in your mind for it to take at least 1 year - you are in a better state of mind in case it takes more or less.

Good Luck
