  1. Hi guys! Monthly update time for May 2020! For the entirety of May, 260 😱 VJ member petitions have been approved by the USCIS across all the centers (by timeline). Approximately 13 cases a day (work day) by the organization as a whole. Of those 260 petitions approved, 25 of them were at Potomac - a little more than 1 petition a day. The first petition of the month was approved on the 4th of May. The latest NOA1 approved this month was February 19th of 2020 (no one knows why they seem to be working backwards from April at the same rate they work forwards from September). The latest NOA1 approved without expedite or I-129f or whatever other weird thing they have going on now was September 26. The current estimated range for application completion on the USCIS website is between 7 - 9 months from your PD. If you filed before September 7th, and you still have not received any notifications about your case, you should call USCIS and find out what is going on. We are a small center (only 1,896 petitions recorded) but our daily rate of approvals is fairly steady. Keep in mind, some filers do not have their timelines set up and so their data is not contributed to the pool, so it may be even more effective than my numbers show here. Please encourage any and all Potomac filers in the forums to go ahead and set them up so we can start to get more accurate readings on our timelines. Congratulations to all of you who were approved this month! We hope things continue to go favorably for our fellow filers and that many more will receive good news over the next month! Don't forget! I have created a tool for public use that will allow Potomac Filers to get a visual aid for where Potomac Center seems to be at in the approval process. I have shared it on FB and I will share it with you all as well. I made a very basic data tracker to help us. You just fill out the next row in the spreadsheet and it will place your case in a bubble chart. When you get an RFE or an approval, you simply change your status in the spreadsheet next to the chart and it will change the color of the bubble. I've also added the option for someone to note that they are a transfer from another center to Potomac. That way, everyone will be able to tell at a glance where Potomac Center is at in approvals. Check it out and let me know what you think! I am open to suggestions for improvements if it is within my limited coding capabilities. Everyone is encouraged to enter their information, even if you have already received your approval so we have a good idea of where everything is at. Thanks! Please let me know if you guys need any help or if you are having difficulties using the spreadsheet. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1oZ10PLJbVaEuTUHz6SHlnYQGhIP9inMrsC4CgltwEXc/edit?usp=sharing
  2. Hey guys! Question for you all. We have had a bit of a rough go with the NVC thus far, but they finally fixed their problem and we are getting ready to submit our documents. My question is this: has anyone here mailed their documents to the NVC or know of someone who has done so? Our lawyer seems to think it is the best idea, but I honestly cannot find any evidence that this is the case. I'm extremely worried if we don't use their new online system it will delay our case. I just want to know if anyone has had any success using that method.
  3. Hi guys! Monthly update time for April 2020! For the entirety of April, 208 😱 VJ member petitions have been approved by the USCIS across all the centers (by timeline). Approximately 10 cases a day (work day) by the organization as a whole. Of those 208 petitions approved, over 44 of them were at Potomac - more than 2 petitions a day. The first petition of the month was approved on the 1st of April. The latest NOA1 approved this month was April 6th of 2020 (likely due to some internal testing of the new electronic application systems, but this is speculation as USCIS has not made any formal announcements about the matter). The latest NOA1 approved without expedite or I-129f was September 4th. The current estimated range for application completion on the USCIS website is between 9 - 12 months from your PD. If you filed before May 16th, and you still have not received any notifications about your case, you should call USCIS and find out what is going on. We are a small center (only 1,860 petitions recorded) but our daily rate of approvals has exploded! Yay! But, keep in mind, some filers do not have their timelines set up and so their data is not contributed to the pool, so it may be even more effective than my numbers show here.

  4. I don't mind at all. The RFE that we received was just to have our wedding contract with the resort we held our wedding at translated. I must have sent it in without translation. I sent the RFE in this past Thursday. Still waiting to hear anything back.

  5. Hey guys! I feel like I just graduated since we just received our welcome email from the NVC with our case number today. However, sadness of all sadness, they messed up our consulate for the interview. Has this happened to anyone else? Any ideas how to get them to change it to the consulate it is supposed to be at?
  6. We have finally been approved! PD Aug 22, 2019. NOA1 Aug 26, 2019 NOA2 Apr 17, 2019.
  7. We've finally been approved! Approval was on the 17th, but I received the Notice of Approval today. We also received an email message from the NVC welcoming us! Sadly, they messed up our interview location, so we will be attempting to fix that before we proceed any further. PD: 08-22-2019 NOA1: 08-26-2019 Touched 11-14-2019 Touched 04-17-2020 NOA2: 04-17-2020 NVC Received: 04-20-2020 💖
  8. Hi guys! Thought I would bring you our monthly update for March 2020! For the entirety of this month, 117 VJ member petitions have been approved by the USCIS across all the centers (by timeline). Approximately 5 cases a day (work day) by the organization as a whole. Of those 117 petitions approved, over 20 of them were at Potomac - nearly one petition a day. The first petition of the month was approved on the 5th of March. The latest NOA1 approved this month was October 22nd (likely due to filing for an expedite or I-129f). The latest NOA1 approved without expedite of I-129f was August 2nd. The current estimated range for application completion on the USCIS website is between 9 - 12 months from your PD. If you filed before April 15th, and you still have not received any notifications about your case, you should call USCIS and find out what is going on. We are a small center (only 1,819 petitions recorded) and the daily rate of approvals has really started to pick-up! Yay! But, keep in mind, some filers do not have their timelines set up and so their data is not contributed to the pool, so it may be even more effective than my numbers show here. Please encourage any and all Potomac filers in the forums to go ahead and set them up so we can start to get more accurate readings on our timelines. Congratulations to our fellow Potomac filers! Let's hope the winds of change continue in our favor! New addition to the monthly update, I have created a tool for public use that will allow Potomac Filers to get a visual aid for where Potomac Center seems to be at in the approval process. I have shared it on FB and I will share it with you all as well. I made a very basic data tracker to help us. You just fill out the three boxes and it will place your case in a bubble chart. When you get an RFE or an approval, you simply change your status in the spreadsheet below the chart and it will change the color of the bubble. That way, everyone will be able to tell at a glance where Potomac Center is at in approvals. Check it out and let me know what you think! I am open to suggestions for improvements if it is within my limited coding capabilities. Everyone is encouraged to enter their information, even if you have already received your approval so we have a good idea of where everything is at. Thanks! Please let me know if you guys need any help or if you are having difficulties using the form. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1oZ10PLJbVaEuTUHz6SHlnYQGhIP9inMrsC4CgltwEXc/edit?usp=sharing
  9. Hi guys! What was the date of your NOA1? I tried to check your timeline, but it didn't come up. 😅
  10. That is such awesome news! They are beginning to cruise along again. Don't forget to update your timeline, please! 🙏
  11. Hi guys! Have you had any updates on your case like an RFE or an approval?

  12. Hi guys! It looks like you haven't been on here for about a month or so. Did you get any approvals or an RFE from Potomac Center?
