SEPTEMBER 2020 I-129F K-1 FILERS

570 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

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

 

The explanation why is it taking so long.

Nice to have you along for the ride. You may want to go back to one of the other months titled like this one and read the entries to see what others are facing so that you are up to speed.

 

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

Hi Greenbaum,

I've actually already filled out the timeline and location information, so I'm not sure why it hasn't shown up! 

 

Hopefully it will now that I've posted this. If not, I'll delete.

Looks good as far as the country but we don't see the visa type. If you are on a phone you will not see the flag. If you look at the top of your post on a phone you will see what has been completed in blue as a link.  BTQ, your file will be adjudicated in California and not at the TX lockbox. Just keeping it real.

Has anyone received there NOA1 yet?

1st September 2020—sent petition 

2nd September 2020—Petition Delivered to Dellas lock box 

Still waiting for the NOA1 

It takes 2-4 weeks before you receive your NOA1. More patience is needed.

If you look in their profile on the left-hand side you will see in blue, as a link, the word "Timeline". Select it and you will have your answer. Good luck and stay engaged.

Hi Cute doll face,

No, not yet. We sent our form on September 1st, but only received confirmation of delivery on September 9th. 

 

It will be closer to the end of the month before we receive the NOA1, I think.

We actually got our response to the G-1145 this morning, right after I made this post - so we should have the NOA1 in a week or so (well, longer because it's being sent by regular mail overseas)...
