9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I filed I130 for my wife in October 2012 and still waiting for NOA2. My file is in my local office, Washington DC. Is there anyone who is waiting for more than 8 months for their NOA2. Does anyone know which month file is getting approved in Washington DC office?

Hello Dipikant! We are on the same boat, have PD Oct. 9, 2012 but still no NOA2 yet. Our paper is under CSC. Let's continue to wait, soon we'll both have our NOA2 :-)

Thanks bing31ph for your reply. Yes, let's hope for the best! I wish someone could tell us how long more do we have to wait. Our whole life is stuck and I can't sleep even a single day without thinking about this.
