Timeline

Hello everyone,

my fiancé and I filed our petition almost 6 months ago and are still waiting for NOA2.

I have been following a couple of timelines and comparing them to ours and I noticed that a lot of couples from the Philippines received their NOA1/filed their application later than us, yet received already their NOA2 (processing at the same center in Texas, not being transferred). I thought the applications go by order?

Doesn't seem right to me. I am happy for all the people who received it in a short time and wish them all the best, but I would like to be in the same boat ;-)

Filipino applications are still being expedited due to typhoon Yolanda from last year. There are still millions homeless. Now add typhoon Ruby to the mix. Dire situation in that country.

Hello everyone,

my fiancé and I filed our petition almost 6 months ago and are still waiting for NOA2.

Also, to clarify about apps being processed in the order received. That does not occur at all. There are many things USCIS looks into & many different ways people present their I-129F petitions. Also, you have many different adjudicators, all of which process at different speeds. Plus, way too many variables that none of us here know, regarding the entire process at USCIS. You should be approved very soon as you're between the 5 & 6 month mark that TSC seems to be trying to keep them around.

I always found its easier to accept things when I understand whats going on. Maybe this can help you visualize how the adjudication happens. This was from a Q&A with a former USCIS adjudicator. The link is http://www.visajourney.com/content/adjudicator-q-and-a

I hope this helps a little :)

Here is the bit about the order in which petitions are adjudicated:
