189 Days Still No NOA2

22 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone

USCIS has received our petition on December 1, 2014.

(USCIS EMAIL: Good afternoon:

We apologize for the delay in our response to your inquiry. Your I-129F petition was accepted by the Lockbox on December 3, 2014, and was assigned receipt number SRC159XXXXXXX. The filing was then sent to the Texas Service Center for further processing. A receipt notice was mailed to you at the address provided on the form.)

We are still waiting for the NOA2.

How many have the same experience?

I am helping others in a group on FB with the Petition and it seems everyone gets approved before me.

Would like to hear from others what they are going through.

Greetings from Germany

:crying: :cry:

How do you know that they just started with november 2014?

I read on USCIS that they are sending petitions to California now because they have so much to do.

The official processing date is September 18th, but we know from data on here they have been processing later. We have seen approvals from October - early Jan over the last fee weeks. Average waiting times are around 220d. There are a handful of lucky ones being approved in the 5-6 month mark - I was one of them last week - but sadly, no predictable patterns at the moment.

Petitions have been routed to CSC exclusively since about March 27th, without this having much impact on processing times at TSC. Just the backlog not increasing anymore.

"USCIS isn't fair. They don't care about you."

That's what I just thought. I just don't understand how they work. What kind of mess is it?

I saw your timeline. My petition got there 3 weeks before yours. :clock:

Glad for you, and I am serious with that.

I'm so sorry you are having to wait so long. This is the worst of it... I promise it will all be worth it. Hang in there!
