So I’ve heard that the i129f expires after a certain amount of time after sending it off or it getting approved, perhaps every four months? I haven’t read that anywhere on the USCIS website, can anyone please help as to how often it may expire and what to do? I assume I contact USCIS with intent to still marry? Thank you so much for helping, anyone who does. This website is incredible with settling my and my fiancé’s nerves :b.

What stage are you at in the process? During the USCIS I-129f phase there is no expiration. 

 

The NOA2 from USCIS does have an expiration, but as long as there is activity on it at the embassy level like scheduling of the interview, the expiration will be renewed by the embassy, or extended.

 

The intent to marry, one was included in the I-129f petition by both petitioner and beneficiary, and a new "updated" copy should be supplied to the embassy at the interview by again both the petitioner and the beneficiary.

We’re in the I-129f process, thank you for letting me know that there is no expiration date during that process (:. 

 

Would you happen to know how long the expiration time is for the NOA2? There will definitely be activity during it, but just in case (:. Thank you so much, you’ve replied to my posts before and I’m still learning how to use visa journey, and this is my first reply on it, so thank you again!

After USCIS approves the I-129f petition, you'll receive the NOA2 in the mail and it will have an expiration date on it, think it is 4-6 months. 

 

The petition itself will go to NVC to get assigned a country specific case number then sent to the embassy. At that point you can track it through CEAC.

 

Depending on the country of the beneficiary, each embassy works a little differently, you can begin scheduling medical and interview and as long as you schedule the interview, the embassy can auto extend the expiration as some embassy's don't have a lot of open spots for awhile so they understand. Plus takes time to gather some of the documents.
