13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just got notification that on April 29th our petition was approved!!!! we received a message only 2 days ago about our address being changed (mysteriously not at our hands!?)...must have been the adjudicator working on our file...which has in turn led to the approval.

Such incredible emotions...feels like our lives are about to move forward...finally!... I hope the same for all of you on here going through the same journey.

Our NOA1 date was October 17 2012...

Hope it means all october filers are hearing good news shortly! Good luck!!!!
