Potomac estimates drastically changed

17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all!

 

Hope this is the right place to put this.

 

When I originally entered my CR-1 timeline (NOA1 22nd July), it showed me a November 2019 NOA2 estimate for Potomac. Now it's showing April-August 2020 which is a wide range and seems... very far off, especially for Potomac? Any idea what caused this sudden jump—did someone upload a weird timeline that skewed the data, or is new info suggesting it really jumped that far, that fast? How is everyone else's Potomac timeline looking?

Probably. As VJ people create timelines and add to the data, yours can change.

Filed rcvd at Potomac Office on 08/20/2018

NOA1 on 08/23/2018

File transferred to NBC on 02/12/2019

STILL WAITING FOR OUTR NOA2 

 

Our attorney says that even though it was transferred to the NBC office we still have to go by the Potomac processing times.

 

Good Luck!

I think the dramatic change in estimated approval dates is simply due to the fact that there hasn't been an approval for weeks (at least among users that report here). 

 

Hopefully they are just spending some time doing trainings. It's a guessing game at this point. All we can do is hope for the best, I guess.

Wow, even 2  1/2 years ago, 5 months was definitely a little faster than average, but not in lottery territory.  Sorry to hear it's slowed so much.
