We sent our petition on June 29,2018 to the Dallas service centre where we were informed it was transferred to California. We received NOA1 on July 6th. Just wondering if anyone has sent their petition around that date and has received NOA2 or heard anything yet? It’s been just over 4 months and I’ve heard it takes around 6 but I was hoping maybe others have received their NOA2. Ive also heard it depends on the country of the beneficiary but not sure if that’s true. Thank you in advance:)

You will not be hearing anything until at best until next January or February. It is currently taking 180+ days for NOA 2. It is best to fill out your timeline on Visajourney and follow your forum

The USCIS says you can send an inquiry after 6 months (which would be end of December in my case) if you don’t hear anything. Do you or anyone recommend doing this ? I’ve also heard of people getting in contact with their state senator? Not sure if I’m way off with this but was just curious to see if anyone has done that and it made a difference in their wait time. Thanks again so much for your reply!

You can check at https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/ to see the current earliest receipt date for an inquiry (select I-129F and California Service Center). As of when I posted this, that was April 2nd, which was 217 days ago, and they gave a processing time estimate of 5.5 to 7.5 months. Any inquiries from cases with an earlier receipt date than the inquiry date are just going to be told their case is in normal processing time.

You are way short of hearing something on your case. They are just beginning to process May and haven't really finished April. So, you are going to be at least January before you can expect to hear anything. There goal is to have everything caught up through June before Xmas holiday.

 

Your Senator will even tell you that you are too early as you are still with in normal processing times of 220 days.

Oh right okay I see. Guess just wishful thinking that we would hear something earlier. Thanks everybody for your replies!!

That is not quite true.  USCIS will accept inquiries only after your NOA1 date is listed as before the date that is on their website for that type of petition at that particular center.  Your possibility of having the inquiry accepted is based on the reported date on the USCIS website.  We waited 8 months before they past our date.  There is no 6 month rule.
