hello everyone, I sent my I-129F petition last year Nov. 29, 2013 and still no NOA2 . i did everything by calling them and congressman getting involved and their response was they can not move forward on my case until background and security checks are completed.. (are they checking mine or my fiancee?I have no criminal records )

​on Oct 1st 2014 I received a RFE stating that i need to need them a new G-325A form coz i sent them a G-325 form, apparently that's was my mistake.. thats the only thing they ask for !!!!! so I sent them the new G325A form..

em i getting close for my NOA2???????? and i want to know why my our background and security checks took almost 1 year.. coz i been reading posts on here and most of you guys get approve in 5 to 7 months only !!!! so happy for you guys when i read your approval but sad when i think bout my fiancee coz we been waiting for so so so long...

​anyone in the same situation or in the same boat waiting for this long for NOA2??????

These folks at USCIS are little more than glorified data entry, they could be replaced by a postal clerk or a smart website. Background checks, that would be on you.

The hold up is that they are gov workers who could truly care less...

I would encourage you to write write write write your congressman(woman), senator, president and let them know as a taxpayer this is crazy. Keeping families apart is un-American.

The more of us (and our families and friends) that will raise a voice the better the chance we can get this crazy system changed....

That is a terribly long time to wait! Where is the beneficiary from? They say you can contact USCIS after 5 months because you are out of the normal processing time. Have you tried? That is ridiculous. I would do what the person above stated. Contact your congress person and see if they can help you.

Almost a year and no action until Oct 1st...? I would say someone dropped the ball, lost your file, or fell asleep at the wheel. Yikes! Background check? Ya they do them, but it doesn't take a year unless you were "someone of special interest", I will stay with ... they misplaced your file, then after your congressman contacted them they when :oops: found your file THEN noticed the wrong form.

Couple more weeks of being patient, if no NOA2 I would give a call again.

Once you have your NOA2 and your case files heads to NVC is when things get to be fun. For details on the K-1 process for the Philippines follow the flashing arrow below.

Serious doubt it has anything to do with you getting a divorce, if that were the case over 50% of the folks filing petitions would be waiting a year for approval ... I will stick with the folks at USCIS did an :oops:

You included a complete copy of your divorce decree with the petition?
