Removal of Conditions Timeline Question

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Philippines

Question for the group: I just sent the ROC (I-751 Packet) Friday. What can I expect as far as timerline is concerned? When will the $680 check clear the bank? When will USCIS contact us? What about biometrics? How long will the overall process take? Is there an 'average' amount of time, or does it depend on each couple's circumstances and her home country? We live in Florida and she is originally from the Philippines.

I applied December 2018. 
check was processed within a few days. 
Noa letter/extension letter came very quickly. 
Got bio letter last Monday (first thing I heard since NOA1) and I’m on my way to bio right now :) so that took almost 11 months. 
when it’s done no one knows I’m at TX which is really slow. Right now Nebraska is the fasted one but that can change.
