Hi All 

   My NAO1 was received on May 29. 2018 and waiting for NAO2 for my K1 visa.  California Service Center. 

I see most of people here was from June 2018 and already receive NAO2. 

However, I still do not receive my NAO2 yet.  I called CSC but they want me keep waiting.  Is anyone still not receive NAO2 if you are the same time as mine?

Thanks all.

Yes.  If you go to the progress report forum there is a thread about the more than 200 day people

I just said there was a thread.   Didn't say she had to read it or join it.  😁

I mean, I'd like to think we had an extremely straightforward case (no prior marriages, no criminal records, a 9 year age difference is nothing when it's early 40s and early 30s, three one-week meetings, met her family, Russia is not a high-fraud country, my surname is very uncommon) and we put together a good packet, but honestly chance had more than a little to do with it I'd guess.

 

Still, most May filers with timelines here do have NOA2 now, and a decent percentage of the rest have an RFE.

I think it's a factor of putting together an approvable petition and chance  My fact pattern is wildly different than yours (previous marriages, previous petitions, big age gap, minimal secondary evidence (ie. One photo)) approved in 172 days.  So what most people would describe as complicated, red flag items, simply doesn't affect a petitions approval.  Submit the required evidence and your petition will be approved.

Explain

sometimes there is a delay (sometimes MAJOR) for no discernible reason. even for straight forward cases that are complete in their package submission.

 

I had my NOA2 in 175 days? including previous marriage, death of my ex, old criminal background, etc. we submitted all relevant and required paperwork, plus some.

 

We do have 40+ visits though. And see each other frequently, obviously.

 

no rhyme or reason for some delays. or for some approvals. it is what it is. sit tight.


i 485, 130, EAD and AP

04/09/2019    NOA1 received/check cashed i 485 and 131

DONE FOR TWO YEARS!!! ;)

 

Filed everything ourselves from K1, then married, withdrew k1, decided to adjust directly and filed I-130 and AOS ourselves with no RFE's or delays.

That's what I've been thinking of. Whichever red flags may be there, will hardly affect approval of the petition itself as the requirements are very straightforward. Embassy is a different thing and they may have fun as they please. So at USCIS stage it is probably pure luck (prompt assignment to a workaholic and fast background check response).
