When to submit a case inquiry to the CSC?

Hello, I submitted an i-130 for a CR-1 visa. TI received form i-797 (official Receipt Notice) with date of 10/22/2014. When I check the status of my case online, this is the message:

On October 22, 2014, we received your Form I-130, Immigrant Petition for Relative, Fiance(E), or Orphan, Receipt Number XXX, and sent you the receipt notice that describes how we will process your case. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you do not receive your receipt notice by November 21, 2014, please call Customer Service at 1-800-375-5283. If you move, go towww.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.

So it seems that USCIS has not yet accepted or denied the i-130. The processing time they list for the California Service Center is 5 months, which has not yet passed. However, I see looking at the timelines here that many people had ~1 month between NOA1 and NOA2. I'm wondering if it makes sense to submit a case inquiry to USCIS, or, if that will be counterproductive since the 5 month expected time is not even close to passing.

Does anyone have any experience in opening a case inquiry before the expected processing time has been met? Or is the only thing to do sit around and wait...

Thanks

The occasional 1 to 2 month you see is either pure luck or expedite. Case inquire you can submit and it be accepted when you have surpassed normal processing times. They will not even bother until that time has gone by.

So now you should be getting things prepared and ready for stage 2 NVC and Reading up you have everything ready. 2014 tax season is coming so you'll need 2014, 2013 and 2012. That's something to keep you busy and read the NVC process wiki (it's in my signature.
