Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am a US citizen I petitioned for my husband May 15, 2013 received a receipt notice May 13,2013 my payment cleared in my account May 13. I tried tracking my case online throung my case number it says Initial Review... My question is how long does it take until it goes to Decision? I checked the processing times of Vermont Service center it says 5-6 months is that really reliable? it is less or more than 5-6 months? so if NOA1 takes 5-6 months an NOA2 takes 1-2 months does this mean it takes 8months to finish my petition?

NOA1 is the receipt notice you got. NOA2 is the approval notice. So assume your petition will finish within 6 months (could be less) unless there are extra checks to perform, or they find you need to send in missing information, or want to interview the petitioner or intending immigrant.

This process is so intenseranting33va.gifranting33va.gif I guess I will be waiting for the next step time goes by fast anyway.. Patiencecrying.gifcrying.gif Speedwell thank you for your response though I will keep you posted what happens nextdancin5hr.gif

Excellent :) Don't panic if you get an RFE or NOID, just make sure you send them what they need. Don't burn yourself out early with worry and stress. Your mate would want you to enjoy yourself, be active and healthy, and go out and be with friends and family. Delay is not the same as denial, so just sigh and say, "Oh that stupid US government is so slow" and go on with a smile. Most of the time everything is fine. On this forum we see all the problems. We don't see all the successes! :)
