If filed online,  what center does it go to? I wanted to look up timelines on the various centers, but don’t know what center to refer to.

It is randomly distributed between the centers (Texas, Nebraska, and Potomac) the same as a paper petition

Oh ok. And I take it the NOA will say which center? 

Yes, I'm not sure if the online NOA1 will say, but you will also receive a paper NOA1 in the mail that should definitely tell you which center it's at

We are getting ready to file! So excited! I’m wondering what’s the timeframe for approval/interview these days? 


DCF China

07/15/2018: Married

10/22/2018: Filed I-130 @ Guangzhou Embassy

11/06/2018: Received Emailed Notice of Additional Processing Requirements and Interview from the embassy 

11/27/2018: Received Mailed Notice of Additional Processing Requirements and Interview from the embassy 

11/28/2018: Interview at the Embassy

12/15/2018: We were informed by letter from the embassy that based on how we got married, that we were not legally married technically and therefore could not file an I-130, unless we could provide evidence showing that our marriage license would be recognized by the issue authority (the Court).

Jan-July 2019: Attempted unsuccessfully to get married in 5 other countries; my fiancé's tourist visa application was continuously denied which left us with only the K1 option

K1 Visa

08/28/2019: Filed I-129F K1

09/04/2019: NOA1 Received
