For those who have just filed your I-129f application with USCIS, this thread has been created for your needs and for you to be with others experiencing different aspects of this journey. This is a place to ask questions and to share experiences. All are here to learn together. Good luck because this is a long process currently running 5-6 months from filing date for your NOA2 approval.

 

https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/K1_Process_V11.pdf

 

Also, since your application will go through a number of background checks this is a primer on what goes on with the background process.

 

I know it really sucks, but the best way to get through this is to lower your expectations and try not to compare your timeline to anyone else's. Don't forget that the people here on Visa Journey represent a tiny percentage of all the petitions the CSC has to work through! When someone gets to your file you'll hear from them. Stay busy, talk a lot with your fiancé about non-visa stuff, don't forget to hang out with your friends, take up a new hobby, go to a sporting event, and your time will come! Good luck

 

Explanation why is it taking so long.

I see you are relocating to Boise Idaho. Beautiful area of the US. Climate is like Herz. Best of luck on your journey.

Be sure to revisit your personal profile to correct your service center. Texas is a "lockbox" location and California, where all I-129f, Petition for Alien Fiancé(e) begin their journey is a "service center". So, your filing center should be California. This will help in populating the timelines here on VJ. Thanks.

Yuppers. Very normal. It often takes 2-3 weeks for any action including the cashing of the check. This process is a challenge and those who can out last USICS normally wins. Patience grasshopper.  In the meantime.....

 

We need a little housekeeping on your end. Many of our answers are predicated on the information you supply in your profile. When we look at the left column and can't determine your timeline OR your Embassy it's hard for us to give you a factual answer. Our answers will sometimes be tailored to a specific Embassy hence the reason for you to complete your profile. If you look at the profile of others here, they have a flag for their country, so it makes it easy for us to reply as we can quickly determine their Embassy. The country that should be used is the country where the interview will take place.
 
So, if you could help yourself out and complete your profile that sure would help us out when we want to reply to your question with factual information.

Once you finish that then return and you will see a flag in your profile. Select it and see what wonderful information will open up for you.
 
Thanks

It took a week for me to get the text and around two and a half weeks to get the letter:). My check wasn't cashed until after I received the text

Thank you for completing your profile. I noticed that you chose Lewisville Tx and Lockbox. The correct entry would be California - then Service Center (CSC) as that is where you file will go for adjudication. The lockbox doesn't adjudicate your case, but CSC will do the processing and adjudication.  Your current selection will skew the timeline algorithms to follow your case and others here on VJ.

 

@Cheburashka34 Could you do the same please. Make the updated changes. Follow the example that I give in my earlier reply.
