Hey everyone,

So me (beneficiary) and my fiance have filed our I-129f at the beginning of November 2023. We noticed the vast majority of filers that month have had a response by now. 

 

We're having a hard time keeping a cool head under these circumstances (but we're not panicking..we know it's a long game!). Have any of you experienced this situation and do you have any tips on dealing with the pressure of the wait?

 

Thanks in advance! 

Reading is what? Fun-da-men-tal!

USCIS tends to jump around a lot when going through their backlog.
So they might not do the entirety of petitions filed in november at the same time.

for my fiance and I, we did a lot of talking about future plans and such while we were waiting. Not sure if it helped but it definitely made the time go by lol

 

we also had him come visit while waiting to hear anything, that helped quite a bit.

Nov 2023 had a hick up, where a lot of cases were not being processed in time. If you saw no movement at this time, suggest you reach out to congresspeople  (you have 3, 2 senators and congressperson) and also the President. I think it is specifically 2-3 Nov 2023 cases that are still "lost"

That is quite interesting to hear...do you have any more information about that?  I'd love to read more about it and see if we can make some moves.

You need patience. It's only 5 months in... officially 80 percent of petitions processed within 13.5 months at California service center

I find it comical that people go by the USCIS info they provide.  This information is lagged severely.  Trackmyvisanow is showing the majority of cases are taking 4 months to go from NOA1 to NOA2 at present.  November is still showing 18% of cases as received, with 57% of cases approved.  They are currently working on the Majority of January Cases.  Was their anything a little more complicated with your case?

Perhaps but what does track my visa get their info from? Specifically like how many people are ahead of you.

Hopefully this is the norm that cases approved would take only 4 or 5 months to process. By your timelines you should hear this week

I believe they use an API to tap into and pull the data from USCIS each day.  If you notice any case can be accessed with just a case # on uscis just from their website.  While they dont say specifically what they do, its proven over the last two years to be very accurate.  Their information also correlates to the data that visajourney provides if you dig into the data.

Ok. Well good luck to us then. Keep your timelines updated. Of course everyone wants fast processing times. When I sent my petition in I was expecting a year before NOA2.

Trackmyvisa and similar tools use the official USCIS API available on the USCIS website. So it's official information.
