Hey everyone , 

i hope everyone is doing great ! 

 

Today , again my question is why NSC is so long to process our I130? 

I am somebody patient but I really start to despair ..

My priority date is August 29th 2018 , and almost 7 months of waiting . 

And it’s like we will receive nothing before 10 month ( or more ) .

when I check NSC approvals , there is like nothing ..

i know that some people dont  take or has the time to update timelines and that VJ is only a piece of this huge puzzle but still ..

when i see that some people have to do inquiries because the process take over than 10 month I am worring .

 

today my visa approval estimation is from 19 to 24 of June 2019 .. first it was the middle of April ! 

So again 3 months to wait at the minimum .

and in June  my approval estimate is gonna be what , October ? 

 

Its like Ike a story with no end . Because NOA2 is not the last piece of the process , then NVC stage etc ..

 

Plus , honestly to see that in other SC some people who applied after me are already approved ..I am very frustrated ..

 

There is nobody to talk , USCIS always give the same infos and ask to wait and wait .. the Congressman we contact doesn’t have more ..

 

i start to think that maybe next Christmas ( I know it’s far )  will be again away from USA ..

 

more infos in your side ? 

 

sorry I know that we are all in the same boat but it start to be exhausting , no? 

 

A good day to y’all !!!

You just have to be patient. Our priority date is February 26,2018 and my husband still doesn’t have an interview date. It took 8 months to get NOA2 and we were at Potomac. Good luck

Waou..thats  sad..

We are just numbers .. not much humanity in that process ..

they add days to days all the time and we have just to be « patient » . I start to hate this word lol 

I don’t know why this SC especially is so late .. 

i am no praying for my file to be transferred ..

i hope you will receive something before the end of the month 🙏

NSC’s  case processing times on uscis site is clearly stating 7.5 - 10 months for i130. Case inquiry applicable receipt date is May 29, 2018. 

 

That means your case is within the normal processing time frame, so they won’t be considering your inquiries with PD of Aug 29, 2018. No need to panic until you don’t hear anything in next 3 months.

 

Immigration process is slow and patience is needed.

It's true they stopped with the congressional inquiries. Basically they'll tell them the same reasons they would tell you if you inquire. Before from an Ask Me Anything with a USCIS employee, it would go to a congressional section and get fast tracked, now they don't they just go back on the shelf.

Right now I just ask myself if we will be able to move before the end of the year 🧐

I thin we all know your frustration.. unfortunately it is a waiting game. I applied from the lockbox in Chicago in march of 2018 and they sent my app to Nebraska service center... then I heard NOTHING for months.. until December, so like 9 months.. then when NVC gets the case transferred to them, they don't "open" the file and let you upload to CEAC for another 6 weeks. unfortunately its just a waiting game for almost a year. once you get to the CEAC stage, its not fast by any means but there at least is some communication to at least let you know your visa is moving along.
