Outside Normal Processing Time

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hello, my case was accepted on April 8, 2016 but until now I did not have updates, according to my research 90% of the cases already have some updating. I'm thinking of fill out the Request (Outside Normal Processing Time), someone already did the same? My case is 6 months. I know this will not speed up my process, just look at my case, have heard cases of seven months, without having RFE. anyone ever seen cases (USCIS) longer than seven months? My husband was divorced, but sent the divorce documents, it makes the process longer? in comparison to a single? .We also researched the USCIS website, and from what I saw, my case should have gone to Texas, and not for Nebraska. I thank the help (sorry for the mistakes, I'm still using Google Translate)

Hey

I know you probably don't wanna hear this but, there is NOTHING much you can do but, WAIT.

My PD is March 29th and I am still waiting. Calling them is pretty useless . You will hear " we are still working on March XX cases . you are still within the time frame " yada dada. I honestly don't think that being divorced matters as long as you have send everything they asked for.

I know a couple who waited about 6 1/2 months for an approval from Nebraska. NO RFES .

Just hang in there. Many people are suggesting to get your state senator involved. You could do that too if you like.

Good Luck .

Yes, the wait is very frustrating at that time so we can expect, I believe that when the seven months, we can call our congressman .Also seen cases of long wait but without RFE, just wanted to understand why take in some cases, and in others do not. Lucky for all of us

Where the petitioner lives doesn't affect which service center your case is sent to--they're sent out according to how many cases each service center is working. My husband and I are both divorced and it didn't seem to affect our processing at all, so I don't think it's that. Good luck!
