TOUCHES!!!

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I see on other people's timelines that their I-129f applications have "touches". My application has had no activity since :help: they received it on June 5th. Should I be calling somebody? :help:

You haven't got the NOA1 receipt yet?

To see touches I believe you have to register on the USCIS website and take down the date and watch the date to see if it changes every few weeks.

I sent my I129F in early July and got my NOA1 on July 18 or something. If you have your receipt number and it is past NOA1, then we just have a 2-4 month wait on average now before someone reviews it and hopefully approves it for NOA2 and sends it onwards.

When you realize that touches don't really mean anything other than a way to try and make us feel better about waiting, then you'll be ok. ;)

It's going to be a couple of months, depending on the service centre, before you hear anything about your petition, unless you get sent an RFE.

Some people get touches some don't. You can get an approval without ever receiving a touch. Now your petition was received on June 7th so It will be well into September most likely before you ever hear anything concerning your case. So no worries for you yet.

The Very Secret Diary of Legolas Son of Weenus - by Cassandra Claire

Day One: Went to Council of Elrond. Was prettiest person there. Agreed to follow some tiny little man to Mordor to throw ring into volcano. Very important mission - gold ring so tacky.

Day Six: Far too dark in Mines of Moria to brush hair properly. Am very afraid I am developing a tangle.

Orcs so silly.

Still the prettiest.

Day 35: Boromir dead. Very messy death, most unnecessary. Did get kissed by Aragorn as he expired. Does a guy have to get shot full of arrows around here to get any action? Boromir definitely not prettier than me. Cannot understand it. Am feeling a pout coming on.

Frodo off to Mordor with Sam. Tiny little men caring about each other, rather cute really.

Am quite sure Gimli fancies me. So unfair. He is waist height, so can see advantages there, but chunky braids and big helmet most off-putting. Foresee dark times ahead, very dark times.

People get all excited about these touches. Some people get 10 touches and no approval for months. We got no touches, just an approval, and we were thrilled!

So disregard them, and hang tight, cause it will be a wait :)

This is what I want. Sometimes no news is good news. I don't want them to contact me with a RFE and delay things. I don't need to see touches to show me my package is being shuffled from one pile to another.

I just want to get to my turn and get reviewed and approved ASAP, so I can help prep and move on to help my fiancee get her visa. Right now I can read and prep, but it feels sort of pointless because I know it will be several months before they make an actual actionable decision.

Hola Mirla,

Welcome to visa journey !! ...

A "touch" happens everytime somebody at the USCIS office "touch" your documentation to do something, when this happens they have to scan and register it. You can see that information (touch date and if it has change your status)

https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/jsps/index.jsp

If you register there you will receive notification emails too.

Regards,

Martin
