May is beginning to see approvals.  You have at least 2 more months to wait before your petition is acted upon and then another 60+ days before interviewing 


YMMV

Main thing, don't think about it. The more you sit and think about it, and check the case status, the slower it goes. Just do normal day to day stuff and don't focus on it and time will go by faster. 

Omg yes this is so true, although it can be so hard to do. I've been trying to avoid using anything has to do with this process including VJ and my apps that track the status. A watched pot never boils they say..

Funny you should say that.  Our K-1 was approved after 270 days.  It was more than 3 months after the VJ date.  I know it is all based on very flawed info.  Now I'm doing the CR-1 (day 52 today) and I just looked at my timeline!!!  I need help.  I'm addicted!


June 6,  2017 - Filed the K-1

April 20, 2018 - K-1 refused

June 11, 2018 - Got married in Pateros, Metro Manila

September 10, 2018 - Filed the CR-1

September 11, 2018 - Priority Date

September 14, 2018 -  NOA-1

 

 

PHILIPPINES ONLY!!!  CFO (Commission on Filipinos Overseas) INFO - Can't leave home without it!

 

PDOS (Pre-Departure Registration and Orientation Seminar) is for ages 20-59.  Peer Counseling is for 13-19 years of age.

It is required to have the visa in their passport for PDOS and Peer Counseling.

 

GCP (Guidance and Counseling Program) is for K-1 Fiancee and IR/CR-1 spouse ONLY.   These are the only ones that can attend the seminar without their visa.

@Kenni

 

You’ve got some really good advice here. The best advice is being from @Ben&ZianThis time of year we always see threads like this where people hope to have their loved ones here by the holidays.

 

You can only hope for faster than normal process but always be prepared that it won’t happen.
