Help with my I-129F case. Why so long?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

i went back to USCIS website today and check my status and finally there was a message, but the same message like before " we have received your forms and it is being process". So basically it was an upgrade from a month ago when they had nothing on the website. But not happy because its the same message that i received in my letter from USCIS that I received on July 21, 2014. .The letter is being process at Texas center, i am getting impatient. Anyone experience the long wait like i am right now?? Also another question, Is meeting your fiancee one time enough to get approve? Or should i see her one for time? Plane ticket arent exactly cheap, But i am still planning to get see her again in May, hopefully the forms will be approve by then. Urg I am stressing out here over this.

Yes, there are many of us in your position. Almost everyone at TSC waits longer than anyone from CSC and those filing from expedited countries. My fiance and I just reached our 6th month yesterday and we've run the gamut of frustrated, extremely angry, depressed and back again. This wait is absurd, the discrepancy between service centers is almost criminal and USCIS will not care one way or the other about your petition specifically. It's incredibly frustrating to go through this process and unfortunately the most you can do other than be patient is attempt contacting your Congressman or Senator once you have reached 5 months.

Good luck! It seems as though TSC has been approving more towards the end of June cases so hopefully January is the month for us July filers.
