First off, you haven't sent it to the Texas service center but to the Texas lockbox. That's totally different. The Texas service center hasn't been adjudicating any i129f in almost two years now. 

Your petition is going to be adjudicated within 5 months.


07/09/2018: ROC packet sent with USPS 2-day priority shipping

07/11/2018: ROC packet delivered to the Vermont Service Center

Each case is individual, it can take up to 12 months for a case to be approved. To be honest it doesn't take that long but I'd hold out a few more months yet before worrying about timescales.


I will not look back on this journey with fond memories, but I will look back knowing that every step was worth it, whatever the outcome.
