5 months today and no NOA2... :(

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I have been trying to see if I could expedite my case... And I was told that I-129f doesn't qualify for it. Then I told the tier 2 officer that it's almost been 5 months and she said it was 5 months today and I should wait another month... I'm so depressed... :(

Not long after 5 months I wrote a letter to my congressman. I did receive a reply but I'm not sure how much it really helped as my case was one of many transfers to TSC. My fiancé just got her approval today and it was 8 months from NOA1 to approval at embassy. It might now seem like it now but it does actually happen for most people just put your trust in God and practice your patience.

I believe you can make a "Service Request" because your timeline says you are at Vermont and so I checked and the USCIS Website says Vermont is processing at 5 months. So you have the right to ask for A Service Request based upon the fact that you are now "Outside of normal Processing time" given on the USCIS Website for the Vermont Service Center.

Best of luck!! it will come.. just stay pendiente de este caso... pero siempre.. "Nice" :-)

~ Jan ??,2013 ~ Service Center ~ Vermont I-129F Packet sent

NOTE: Actual sent date unknown due to lawyer negligence - I delivered ALLForms and PAID Lawyer on Nov 7, 2012 - Lawyer kept saying he sent the packet and USCIS must have lost it. When in reality he failed to send the package and only a new copy to USCIS after I made a legal written demand giving him 10 days to perform or return ALL monies paid to him, due to "non-performance".

(IMO it's better to save your money for visits to or from your Fiancé and just fill it out yourself using the K-1 Guide on VJ and Senior Members... They Rock!!!)
